    Paralegal Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through my university's career website. Made it through three rounds of interviews, was not called back for a fourth.

    The HR staff was unprofessional towards me throughout all three rounds. They managed scheduling very poorly and were unclear about their intentions. It took me 4 weeks before I heard back from any HR person regarding the status of my application after I took the standard 2 week protocol before calling and emailing my HR contact.
