    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clifford Chance (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted to do an interview over the phone. The woman I spoke with asked questions very robotically and joked about how her paralegals do way more work than they probably should. She didn't actually seem very interested in my answers but more in getting the interview over so she could move on to the next person. Seemed skeptical of my answers as well.
