    Contract Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Update Legal (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Mostly done over the phone, short in person meeting. Fairly casual, but enjoyable. In person meeting was to sign paperwork and go over any questions I had about the temporary employee process. Overall, not very demanding. I think the client's role at this point is more important than that of Update Legal.

    Interview Questions

    • What kind of position I am interested in; my upcoming timeline; possible time conflicts; etc.   Answer Question

    Document Review for Licensed Attorneys Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Update Legal (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed and I'm quite qualified. I was somewhat perplexed, however when I received an email advising they would pay me a referral fee for qualified candidates I could refer. I advised them "I" was available, but was informed they were just seeking applicants.

    It's very, very unprofessional and I don't appreciate them wasting professionals time with the numerous documents requesting highly confidential person information such as social security numbers, drivers license, etc. and the expense we incur to just "fill up" their database to give the impression upon the law firms that they have a large applicant pool, all the while using the same preferred temps. I also suspect that since I'm a minority, they don't hire my kind. I won't be recommending this company to any law firms or lawyers to use, I suspect they discriminate and don't really hire anyone else, just a few insiders.
