I worked at Foster full-time
One of the few places, that I know of, that is willing to give people with no experience a chance! Also, they have a alright benefits package and offer paid parking in the Downtown or a Metro Card! Not a bad place for a first or second job.
It is not a bad place for a first or second job, however it is strictly that. At some point you're going to want to look for another job. There really isn't any room for career growth. Also, even though they are willing to hire people with little to no experience, Foster LLP lacks the ability and effort to properly train new hires in the complexities of immigration law. One must completely expect to learn on the job or sink. And if I am correct, any field of law is NOT a good area of work to learn on the fly.
Advice to Management
Find new ways to help employees rise within the ranks of the firm and create a more comprehensive and effcient way to properly train new hires who have never stepped foot in the immigration law.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Foster (Houston, TX) in March 2016.
HR will interview the applicant first, then the applicant take computer-based test and writing test. At last, the applicant will be scheduled for another interview to meet with legal team. Interview questions are regular ones, nothing changeling. Be prepared for the tests, if you have experience preparing and taking LSAT, you will be fine for the computer based test; if not, it is stressful. For writing test, you really need to be prepared and they will let you know if you will be tested for writing skill.
