    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sullivan & Cromwell (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Short interview from college campus recruiting. There were two interviewers, both of whom were very nice and cordial. They asked pretty standard questions and then tailored some questions based on my experiences. I sent a thank you email after the interview, but never heard a response. I sent a follow-up thank you note, again with no response. It seems that if they do not want to go forward with a second interview or do not want to extend an offer, they may never get back to you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sullivan & Cromwell in March 2016.

    Interview

    I didn't get further than ten minutes into the phone screening because the interviewer said the job required a two-year commitment, which I couldn't do because of visa limitations. This was something that should have been stated in the job application. Other than that, the questions were pretty basic, except for a few odd questions (regarding my LSAT score and my choice of university).

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in working at S&C? What was your LSAT score? Why did you choose to attend the university you went to?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Sullivan & Cromwell (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I first submitted my resume to a Temp Agency and was picked up by them. After meeting with the recruiter, she submitted my resume to S&C. My interview at S&C went very smoothly. There were two people who interviewed me simultaneously. They were in charge of all of the Legal Secretaries at S&C. They were really nice and easy-going. They were not intimidating nor were they mean in any way. They were very curious about my past experiences and my future goals. The interview went extremely well and I knew I would be getting a call back from the Temp Agency to let me know I had been hired.
