    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eversheds Sutherland (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview was over the phone, screening, then testing, Word, Excel, Typing and Proofreading. The proofreading was difficult. All the tests are timed. If you do well on the test then next step is the actual interview. I met with a few attorneys. I was there for over two hours, but I did not mind because I've interviewed at other places where they want to bring you in for another round of interviews, at least at Sutherland, they knocked them out all at once.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eversheds Sutherland (London, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied for a more junior role as I do not have legal secretarial experience. I was invited to an interview but when I found out the salary for that role was below my expectations, the HR man (who was very helpful) offered me an interview for another, more senior, role.

    I was interviewed by two secretarial heads of staff. There were quite a lot of questions but I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable. I though the interview went well but after ten days, I chased for feedback and was told the role had been offered to someone else.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eversheds Sutherland (Birmingham, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Took a while to set up, but when it eventually happened I thought it went well!!

    Competency based so lots of questions about past experiences and situations. Worth having a think about challenges you've faced etc in the workplace and how you overcame them.

    After weeks waiting for feedback, I finally had feedback that was completely irrelevant to my interview and left me feeling confused! Had they just come back and said I wasn't experienced enough, I would have been happier but the feedback felt made up (i.e. apparently I was nervous.....when they'd stated in the interview how great it was I didn't seem overly nervous!)!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Eversheds Sutherland.

    Interview

    Competency based.....bascially an hour of questions regarding experience being fired at you. Preparing well is the key and knowing your CV inside out.

    Unfortunately, Eversheds seem to have policy of not contacting applicants should they not be offered the job......would have welcomed some feedback.
