    Interview

    It was a fair process. I was evaluated both on my resume and my ability to answer the questions provided given my experiences in and outside of the classroom. The person was very friendly and I would definitely recommend this company to anybody looking for a more relaxed environment

    It was a one step interview and roughly thirty minutes long. I was a temp. position for the busy summer recruiting season so the interview was rather simple and easy. They just wanted to know what I was capable of and get to know me as a person.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Debevoise & Plimpton (New York, NY (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    The initial phone screen and face to face interviews were great. The interviewers were very professional and provided great detail on the position and what was required in the role. They were really excited about my background and were eager to get me back in for the final in-person discussions with some other colleagues in HR. The second round of interviews went very well however, the firm never followed-up on the final hiring decision. It's important to provide courtesy to candidates especially with Management roles and above. No follow-up emails or calls to at least say thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to candidates is very unprofessional, especially for a prestigious law firm.

    Summer Law Clerk Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Debevoise & Plimpton (New York, NY (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was very casual. 30 minute one on one interview with a recruitment officer. The process was a part of a job fair so the interviews are short and the questions are limited, because you're part of a cattle call it's clear that you're expected to have a unique and impressive answer to what are pretty standard questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Debevoise & Plimpton (New York, NY (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Met with collections supervisor and manager . Interviewers explained job functions and tasks and went into great detail on working hours during busy season.

    Only negative with this experience was not hearing back either way . I don't think I've ever had an organization not at least acknowledge that I took a meeting. Left not the best impression of this firm from a interview / potential new hire view point
