    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Davis Polk (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process is fairly simple. I talked with paralegal manager for some 'standard' interview questions, and then got assigned with a current working paralegal to talk more about details of their work. People are friendly and highly professional, working environment is good.
