    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Herbert Smith Freehills part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like to work with people
    And I found I have a knack for fashion
    This job has served to fulfill both of those desires

    Cons

    the hours are sometimes long and being in a position of owner keeps me very busy

    Advice to Management

    Always make yourself available and listen to employees
    There are no small jobs

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Herbert Smith Freehills in September 2014.

    Interview

    I am an experienced hire from an in-house position, didn't have any big law job before. Introduced by a recruiter and interviewed with 3 partners (3 rounds of interviews and 1 round writing test). The interview arrangement was smooth and efficient, and the interviewers are very friendly and helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to leave in-house position and go to a law firm. People normally go on an opposite track...   1 Answer
