Callback ending early??

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 03, 2012 9:27 pm

Had a callback at a Big Law firm in the south (non regional) and the interviews went really well except the last one lasted about 10 minutes instead of the usual 30 ( I didn't really have many questions since they'd been answered by the 6 other associates) ...

What do y'all think... Bad sign? or does the last interviewer usually end early since they know you've been through so many others...

Ask the same questions to the last person if you run out of them.

I have had a couple of callbacks where the last attorney to interview me did not seem to have a voice in the hiring process and was there just for filler.
