    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I did a phone call with the recruiter and then an on-site. I was told at the on-site that a decision would be made a week after. However, the following week, the recruiter asked me to do a video call with another manager. After I spoke with the manager, the company completed ghosted me. I followed up a few times and there was no response. I was a bit disappointed that I took the time off to do the interview, and the company completely stopped responding. Very unprofessional and inconsiderate.

    Project Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Received an email to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview consisted of going over my resume, answering about seven questions, then tentatively scheduling in-person interview. Confirmed that and interviewed with the HR administrator and the head of the practice area. I rate the experience as slightly negative because the recruiter missed my first telephone appointment and followed up a week later to reschedule. They also never contacted me after my in person interview.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery (Washington, DC (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    30-minute phone interview with HR Manager based out of Chicago office. Stilted conversation, very formal, hiring manager clearly had not taken time to read my resume or do any research on my background (had never heard of my prior law firm, despite it being a fairly large firm). Did not open up opportunity for questions, which was odd.

    It went very well, the 2 interviews were very nice and really liked me. It was a chill experience they asked me about what office work I had done before etc. And do I mind overtime because sometimes the firm is back loaded with clients and cases etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery in April 2018.

    Interview

    The first was a phone screen with a recruiter followed by meeting with one senior management person. The next step was meeting many people over several hours. It was a very long day. Too long to interview well beyond the third hour. Everyone was polite and helpful at the office, and they had ordered lunch for me, which was very thoughtful.
