    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Weitz & Luxenberg (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Met with a member from Human Resources who gave me an introduction to the firm and more clarity on the position. It was very direct and came across as a very honest assessment based on their opinion and experience. Then met with a senior manager who has been with the firm for many years. He was very straight to the point about his expectations and spent an ample amount of time describing his experience with the firm. He also seemed very genuine and sincere.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Weitz & Luxenberg in June 2017.

    Interview

    My first interview, I met with a man from HR; he was absolutely lovely and asked basic interview questions. I then met with a floor manager and an attorney. Both were friendly but did not seem particularly interested in the interview. After completing the first interview, I was asked to come back to meet with a senior attorney, which I accepted. This attorney was one of the most miserable people I have met; she has evidently lost the ability to smile. The moment I walked in the door, she had a palpable aversion to me. She hurried along all my answers to get me to leave faster. When I shook her hand, she did not even look me in the eyes. Within less than six hours after the second interview, I was denied. This was a welcomed sight, as only a masochist would want to work under that attorney.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Weitz & Luxenberg (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I first spoke to a HR manager (really nice guy) then to the attorney who was the one hiring the legal assistant. First, they have 3 opening positions, each position with a different attorney. Second, my coworker from my current job ALSO applied a day earlier, but got an interview super quickly and hired the next day with a male attorney. For me, it was different. It was really weird because I am very hardworking, witted and quick/competent, and we all expected I would also get hired because my qualifications are slightly higher than my coworkers. However, my interviewer who was a female attorney didn't really ask any questions and went on a whole spiel about her job. Sadly she didn't make the job seem great either and looked miserable. We ended with how she was seeking someone who could stay for 2 years but I had mentioned I may only stay for one (woops should've lied here because my coworker lied too.) In the end, I wasn't hired. Why I make a distinction between male and female, because women are more micro-managing whereas men see the bigger picture. I tend to not do so well when my interviewer is a female, sadly.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Weitz & Luxenberg (New York, NY).

    Interview

    My interview went incredibly well. I met with a guy from HR (whose name I cannot mention per Glassdoor rules) and the attorney I would be working with (who I really liked). I was even offered the job! I was very excited. We were negotiating salary and it was at this point where the guy from HR told me he would reach out to the attorney and get back to me. It is now four months later and I have never heard back from him.

    During the first follow up when I asked him what was happening in terms of negotiation, he would say "yes, yes I will get back to you". During that first month I heard back twice from him, after that I never heard from him again. I was supposed to hear back within the month. Every time I called this man or emailed him he ignored my inquiries. I finally reached out to the attorney's assistant and she said "oh, HR should've called you about this. I'll have them talk to you". HR never called me. I never heard anything again AFTER ALREADY being offered the job. The most unprofessional experience I've ever had. A simple "hey, we can't offer you more than ____" would've been great. Inexcusable.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Weitz & Luxenberg (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was in contact with a staffing agency and they setup an interview with the firm. I had a total of 3 in-person interviews directly at the firm. For the first interview I met with 2 people from the department I was interviewing for and was asked normal interview questions. The 2nd interview I met with the same group and 2 other department supervisors. We discussed the role of the position and I again was asked normal interview questions about my strengths, weaknesses, goals, and experience. The 3rd interview was with HR and they gave me a tour of the building. I was offered the position after the 3rd interview. Extremely professional process and all the staff that was involved was extremely welcoming and helpful. All of my questions during the whole entire process were answered. Highly recommend.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Weitz & Luxenberg (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied on Linkedin and was contacted by a recruiter on the same day who scheduled a call with me. Although the position on Linkedin was for the role of an "HR Assistant", the recruiter started describing a COMPLETELY different role. Apparently it was a "hybrid role" that they were creating that was a mix of an executive assistant and a paralegal. I was told that my qualifications matched what they needed and that he would contact me back to schedule an on-site interview but was never emailed after that day. Overall, a very shady experience, and after reading the reviews on this site, I'm glad I wasn't asked to proceed.
