    Ediscovery Counsel Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    The position was located overseas. I had 3 rounds of interviews with interviewers located in Hong Kong, Zurich, and London -- and they were all by phone. I wish they offered video conferencing so as to be more engaging. Surprised that they didn't offer this when most companies do for remote interviews, especially going into the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    The last interviewer who called from their London office used an interrogation style of interivew, seeming to disbelieve my accomplishments and asking why and how I managed to accomplish what I described on my resume -- from jobs that I held as far back as 10 to 15 years ago. He had an air of disbelief and almost assumed that I was hiding something or exaggerating -- seemed inapproriate to put an interviewee as much on the defensive as he did. The first and second round interviewers were much more professional.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you accomplish xyz? (Referring to a *part of a phrase* I wrote in line 4 on page 2 of your resume, in my 5th job out of law school, some 7 years ago.)   Answer Question
    • Why should I believe you?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UBS.

    Interview

    Pretty easy process. Behavioral questions mostly about your resume and background. The guy interviewing was really nice and easy to talk to. Overall, a great experience. I would answer in STAR format if I went back in time. A lot of questions on times you were a leader, took initiative, were a team player, etc.
