    Corporate Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wachtell Lipton (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through the company's website and received a call asking me to do an interview with them in New York. The formal part of the interview only lasted about 20 min, and the corporate paralegal coordinator had one of the paralegals go around and introduce me to the other paralegals. The second, more informal part of the interview lasted about an hour so the interview lated a lot longer than I expected.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wachtell Lipton in March 2009.

    Interview

    I was recommended for the job by a former employee so my interview process was atypically short. I do not know what the typical recruiting process looks like. I interviewed with five people during my call back, three partners and one associate. The conversations were intellectual but the interviewing style was not hostile or stressful in the least bit. The topics ranged from previous legal experience to hobbies and books.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to present and analyze a legal issue that i encountered and wrote a memorandum about.   1 Answer
