    Paralegal Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Botts.


    On campus interview with hiring manager for the clerks. Within the week received notification that I had been accepted for an onsite interview. The onsite interview consisted of meeting with the hiring manager again and then interviewing separately with 5 paralegals from different departments. Offered position a few weeks later. Worked with one of the paralegals I interviewed with so there was probably matching of personalities going on during the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were especially difficult or unexpected. Asked general questions like interests, why I wanted to work in the legal field, where I saw myself in 5 years, plans for graduate school.   Answer Question


    No negotiation. In the clerk position you could take the offer or leave it.
