    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sutherland Asbill.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume and transcript through a legal recruiter who was then contacted to set up an in-person interview. At the initial interview I met with two partners and was told about the position and asked about my legal experience, skills and reasons for seeking the position. I think had a second interview where I met with multiple partners and associates and was asked similar questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sutherland Asbill (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview was over the phone, screening, then testing, Word, Excel, Typing and Proofreading. The proofreading was difficult. All the tests are timed. If you do well on the test then next step is the actual interview. I met with a few attorneys. I was there for over two hours, but I did not mind because I've interviewed at other places where they want to bring you in for another round of interviews, at least at Sutherland, they knocked them out all at once.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sutherland Asbill (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had a short interview for 20 minutes, received a call back for Atlanta, and met/interviewed with several attorneys in one day. Attorneys were more interested in talking to me about what I want to know to make them a better fit for me. It was really refreshing to feel that the attorneys really wanted me there. Very friendly people, answered all of my questions fully.

That interview was very easy-going and pleasant. I was called within 24 hours and was recommended for another position with the firm Tax Paralegal (Which I was also very excited about) I did a phone interview with the Paralegal Specialist of that group and got advanced to the last set of interviews (Which is in 2 days) This one is to last 3-3.5 hours, meeting with all the Attorneys and HR. I was given a week to prepare for the interview, so I contacted an attorney I worked for to write a letter of recommendation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sutherland Asbill (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Interview process from start to finish was amazing. Everyone in HR was courteous, just found it hard to believe a firm of that size had no staff recruiter. Phone screening, testing and interview. Although I didn't test to their passing, the manager was so kind and offered suggestions on getting skills sharpened.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sutherland Asbill (Atlanta, GA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Partner that interviewed me at the on campus interview didn't even seem to care. Spent his time talking about anything but the firm. Gave me a subtle dig on the color choice of my suit. Actually glad I didn't get the offer if the rest of the folks working there were anything like that guy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sutherland Asbill.

    Interview

    HR staff was amazing. Always followed thru and were patient with my follow-up questions. Interviewed approximately three or four times during a two week period. During that period met with about 8 different people. Met with the team peers that I would be working with as well as team leads (partner-attorneys) that I would be coaching and supporting to help grow their business. Very fluid and comfortable process.

    Interview Questions

However, I found it most challenging to be interviewed in a conference setting by three people video conference style...as you how to allow for time delay issues and to be aware of how the camera may or may not be interpreting your eye contact and/or gestures.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I declined the first time and then accepted the second offer.
