    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at New York County District Attorney (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Was called in by the Bureau manager. Took a few weeks. Had an interview for the week after. The interview process took around 2 hours long. Had an initial interview with the manager which was mostly a quick info about job. Then met an Assistant District Attorney, which went well. Met some paralegals. Met the chief bureau assistant district attorneys.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't ask too many questions. Mostly about why I wanted to work at the DA's office and why I wanted to be a paralegal. Generic questions. Nothing big. Seemed very laid back, but couldn't get a good read on whether the interviewers liked me or not. Good experience overall. One unexpected question was one about how many soccer balls are produced in the US.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York County District Attorney (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Very technical in nature. Sat with department director, lab manager, bureau chief and supervisor to discuss knowledge and experiences. Questions were directed at hypothetical situations that did not necessarily reflect the work that was being done in this lab. Overall the interview was fairly simple and help was given to direct the answers more clearly.

    Really only salary wise we discussed annual salary but was paid an hourly wage equating to an annual salary.

    The interview was fairly simple. Questions were not hard. Just be confident, have an interest in public service, and what the DA's office does. I'd say confidence/nervousness was my killer.
