    Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baker McKenzie (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Was contacted for a 20 minute phone interview with a recruiter.

    At the end of the interview, the recruiter explained next steps and said I'd be contacted in the next week.

    After never hearing back, I of course recognize I was not selected to move forward, but I even followed up 10 days after my interview and did not receive a response. It seems that the organization is not concerned with a candidate's time, if they can not even respond after already connecting with a candidate. Not great candidate experience, especially for a firm that seems to advertise its support of people.

    Research Librarian-Tampa Office Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baker McKenzie (Tampa, FL (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and in less than a week had a brief phone interview with a Recruitment Manager based in London. It went very well and then I had a Skype interview with 2 hiring managers the following week. Afterwards I reached out to their local recruiter I had spoken with prior to my interview, but she never returned my emails or calls. All I wanted was some feedback. It was a very rude way to let someone know they didn't get the job. If candidates have taken the time and energy to apply, research the company, and go through 2 interviews then have the decency to at least let them know they didn't get the job.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baker McKenzie (New York, NY (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The position was through the bAgile program. The process was unlike anything I have ever experienced. The interview was done over Google Hangouts. So, the questions were over chat. Not personalized and I had to wait for the results of how well I did. The told me I would have to log on the next day at 8am, gave me no other time or option. And when I did not log on immediately at 8am to message the chat, she complained that "we were supposed to start this chat at 8am." Just the whole entire thing seemed like a scam. Turns out I did well through the chat interview and I was immediately offered a position. I was told I would be receiving a check in the mail for programs/ materials I may need to purchase. They were going to send me money when I have not even spoke with an actual human being. It just seemed like a complete scam again. I refused to participate, and told them I would need to meet with someone in person to go over the job in the entirety. I had to ask this request twice before they understood I was not going to budge on it. I ask this 3 weeks ago, and I have yet to hear back from them.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baker McKenzie.

    Interview

    The interview provided was very brief and to the point. The interviewee wasted no time. The hiring process also did not take long about 45 min to an HR. I would for some who dread interview questions and long responses that this by far was the quickest and most precise.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Baker McKenzie.

    Interview

    16 weeks of interviews, waiting and games. I can only imagine what it is like trying to get anything done in that environment. Need to be reminded that a poorly managed hiring process hurts it’s brand, and desirability factor among top candidates. One candidate shares his/her experiences with dozens of peers. Thanks but no thanks.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Baker McKenzie.

    Interview

    Two rounds: one with partner and associates and other with HR and partner. Basic interview questions. I applied online and received a call shortly after submitting application. I was asked a lot of questions about my experience and interest but nothing difficult. Thought the second interview was redundant.
