    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wilson Elser in March 2017.

    Interview

    First step was a phone interview. Did not ask questions directly about position, instead asked questions about my background. Interview took about 15-20 minutes total. Was then told that I would hear something back in a couple days, but never heard anything.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wilson Elser.

    Interview

    Had a quick telephone interview with HR. Was called in to interview a few days later. Met with a few individuals that day. Everyone was extremely nice and asked really good interview questions. The interview lasted approx. 45 minutes, but they made me feel comfortable the whole time. After the interview, one interviewer was kind enough to walk me out! Received an offer the next day!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wilson Elser (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Short and no-nonsense. It appeared that a decision was made based upon the resumes, prior to meeting with the partners. Very little advance time was given for the interview as the need was immediate. I was not given the opportunity to ask any questions, and waited longer to meet with the interviewers than the interview actually lasted.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wilson Elser (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    You interview first over the phone with their in house recruiter. Then, depending on which group you get hired into, you have either 1 or 2 additional rounds of interviews with partners. Some groups do panel interviews for a final interview. They made the hiring decision very quickly after the final interview.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Wilson Elser.

    Interview

    Interview was informal: two of the three people scheduled to interview with me did not show up. One partner came late.

    Afterwards there was no communication. I sent "Thank You" notes to all the people who interviewed me and called and emailed after 1 week, 3 weeks, and 5 weeks. There was simply no response: Nada.
