Interview

I was interviewed by a partner and the HR rep. The interview was laid back. Preparing questions prior did not assist me. Before the interview I attended a networking function and after the interview I had a coffee with a graduate lawyer.

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clayton Utz (Sydney) in May 2018

Interview

I applied for the 2019 FTS Graduate Program online. Had psychometric test and 2 onsite interviews. The interviews are not technical at all (no coding at all) it's just behavioural/ situational questions. Even though they target computer science student, I dont think it's a software development related role. The HR, manager and director are very nice.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Clayton Utz (Perth, Western Australia, Western Australia)

Interview

Overall the experience was extremely positive. Not being interested in a career in commercial law, I was never an ideal candidate and found it hard to describe a genuine interest in any practice areas. However the HR staff are some of the nicest people I have met - a supportive culture seems to be a priority of the firm (however I wouldn't know).

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Clayton Utz (Sydney) in Apr 2018

Interview

I applied for the 2019 FTS Graduate Program in mid 2018. The first stages were a fairly simple aptitude test and a logic test. If you're a programmer they're quite standard and you'll be used to problem solving. I undertook two stages of interviews at their Sydney office, and was assigned an interview buddy during this period in order to become familiar with the company and settle any questions or concerns I had. Thankfully my buddy was a really great guy. We met for coffee before each interview and it helped me to relax. The buddy system (and my buddy in particular) shows a great effort and commitment from the company to the recruitment process, which is the reason for my favourable review/experience. The interviews themselves were quite relaxed, and was between myself and a panel of the recruiter and a technical lead/director. The questions were fairly straightforward but contained more of a legal framing than regular interviews. Although I performed quite well and reached the end of the application process, I didn't receive the offer as there were higher quality candidates. Regardless the experience was one of the most positive I've had. Note: they will require an official academic transcript, and you are encouraged to (you should) dress professionally (in a suit).

Interview Questions
  • Interview questions were fairly standard for software developers, however a number had a legal framing/twist which would be more unique and interesting to think about in advance.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Clayton Utz (Melbourne) in Sep 2017

Interview

There is an initial interview with the hiring partner and a human resources representative, then a written test, which you take in a room by yourself and is basically to check that your skill level is what they would expect of a lawyer at your level, then a second interview with two other partners in the group just to check that they all like you and the first partner's judgement isn't in error. The whole process takes several months.

Interview Questions
  • It was all the usual questions - why are you looking for a new job, why do you want to work here, what have you done previously.
