I interviewed at Sidley Austin

Interview

Easier than expected. Two rounds first with office manager, second with other paralegal team members. Their personalities made it comfortable and bonus that it was non-panel style. Office manager no longer there.

Unprofessional! They scheduled a date and time for the interview that was confirmed. I showed up and the interview didn’t take place. They’re looking at me bizarre despite me showing them the correspondences for the date /time. I should’ve took that as a sign from then that it’d be a sh*t show .

Interview

Interviewed for the Hong Kong office. 4 rounds of interview. Exam/HR/Junior to midlevel associates/partners and counsels. They do not know what you talked about in the last round, so basically it's like repeating same conversation again and again. Mandarin Chinese required.

Standard interview process, rotation through attorneys at the firm. Most people seemed mildly interested in talking but largely stuck to a script of questions. Senior attorneys would sometimes go off script based on resume or interests.
