Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bennett Jones LLP (Toronto, ON) in Apr 2018

Interview

A 30 min (approx) telephone interview followed by an invitation to attend in person. The in person interview was 2 hours -1 hour test and 1 hour for face to face (but ran to 2.5 hours due to waiting and delays). The interview started with a grammar spelling and proof reading test on hard copy, followed by a Microsoft Word / and some excel formatting test. Instructions on paper had to be followed and applied to a document on the computer ( took about 1.5 hours for the test). Thereafter we had a face to face where asked questions for about 20-30 minutes.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bennett Jones LLP (Toronto, ON)

Interview

The first was a phone screening. It's hard to remember but I think it lasted approximately half an hour. At the end I was invited to attend for an in-person interview with HR. I found HR extremely pleasant and professional. I was quite nervous because I actually really wanted the job but she was relaxed and welcoming and that put me at ease. The interview itself was lengthy. The questions were thorough and it's evident that they search for the right candidate by determining what you liked about previous positions, why you are leaving your current one, and what you are looking for. They want to match the right person to the right lawyer. About an hour to an hour and a half in, another team member was brought into the interview. The three of us spent about another hour or a bit longer in discussion. I was provided with a test, a questionnaire and grammar/spelling testing. At the end I was invited back to meet the lawyer on another date. I met the lawyer about two weeks later. I was asked about my opinion at the end of the interview and I was genuinely interested in the position. I received my offer several days later.

Great interview process. Something I enjoyed was not only do you interview with HR but also your future boss which means you can ask direct questions on the tasks and job and get clear answers from your future boss and also gauge if their personality and expectations match yours. Standard questions.
