Interview

Phone screening interview- HR Coordinator didnt provide information about the role, company culture or anything at all. Weirdest interview ever. Without a proper introduction, they only wanted to know how soon could I start and if I had vacation planned.

Interview Questions
  • Any upcoming vacations planned in the future?

I interviewed at McCarthy Tétrault

Interview

3 rounds, comprehensive, detailed but very by the book interviews. First with recruiter, then HR, then partners that you'd work for. The biggest takeaway is to be true to yourself.

Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at McCarthy Tétrault (Vancouver, BC) in May 2022

Interview

I really do not understand the law firm. I received an email from the company's HR inviting me to schedule a day and time for a phone interview via her online calendar. Apparently, the email went further to inform me that once I book, a confirmation will be sent to us both via email. I booked a date and time for the phone interview. I did not receive a confirmation, therefore, I sent an email informing HR that I didn't receive a confirmation and the date and time I booked for the phone interview. HR replied the email that she did get the invite and was looking forward to speaking with me. On the day scheduled for the interview, I never received a call from HR. I sent an email to HR confirming if the phone interview is still going to hold and till date, I have not received a response from the law firm.

Interview Questions
  • HR did not attend the phone interview despite scheduling a date and time with the interviewee.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at McCarthy Tétrault (Quebec, QC) in May 2021

Interview

Interview process was straightforward usual questions but I was told I would be given a follow up regardless of whether or not I would get the job and I didnt hear back even after emailing them to ask if they have made a decision. I know places do this but it is still rude towards potential employees and disappointing experience

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McCarthy Tétrault

Interview

Initial phone interview with recruiter (15 mins), followed up with interview with director (1 hour), then an assessment (case studies and personality test), and panel interview with the leads of the department (1 hour). The interview with the director were pre-determined questions, whereas the panel was more improvised and spoke mostly to the results of the case studies and personality test. Overall very smooth, recruiter kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. Was told that they would let me know of their hiring decision after I had completed the final round, and never heard from them again.
