I applied using a contact, however, you can call up the office and get details from the HR Department.
Timings? Number of working days per week?
Monday to Friday. From 9:30am to 6:30pm, at the very least. Saturdays were usually off, unless your associate called you in.
Accommodation: how? where? reviews?
I stayed at WGU hostel, opposite Colaba bus station, near Sassoon docks, Mumbai. The hostel is clean and safe. The prices are also moderate and not too expensive.
First Impression? First day? Formalities?
You were asked to sign in and fill a form where you were required to state all your details and of course, your area of interest. You were then assigned a desk and work started almost immediately.
I did a lot of drafting which included show cause notices, summary suits, winding up notices and other legal notices. I also did due diligence reports and helped in researching.
Work Environment? People?
Everyone was open and super helpful. The associates made you feel welcome and were happy to help in case you didn’t understand certain things. Economic Laws Practice follows a pretty strict dress code but other than that, it has a warm and open work environment.
The stipend, which, according to me, was really good. The associates gave credit when it was due and did not go nuts if you made a genuine mistake.
The CCD coffee machine. You could have coffee and tea whenever you felt like.
A lot of times, there were snacks in the pantry like cupcakes, ice cream chocolates, cake, etc.
₹10,000 per month
Learning to work with different people. Also, you had a lot of responsibility with regards to the work you were given.
