    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Texas Attorney General in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Resume sent in and reviewed. Had two followup interviews. Most of this was handled through a professor's program. I had to do very little to get the interview. I found the who process to be fairly simple for this reason. I might like to work there again in the future as a regular employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Texas Attorney General in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the hiring manager to inquire about my skill set. Then he called me in for an in person interview twice. He asked me to describe my past work experience. Then he talked about the range of projects that are worked on. Weeks later he called me in for another interview where I interviewed with three other people that I would be working with. They all were respective experts in their area and I was supposed to know an intermediate amount of each area. They evaluated and ranked my interviews overall and compared against other candidates (this I found out later). The outcome was good for everyone.

    Interview Questions
    • Talk about an situation where you lead a team through a project and what was the outcome.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation process really. The telecommuting option was not available, although managers are allowed to provide for it. Also, there was no salary range, only a specified salary, so I couldn't go up or down from there.

    Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Texas Attorney General in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Panel interview, asked about cases I had worked, asked a few ditzy questions such as "how do you feel about change" and "how do you deal with competing deadlines" and others right out of interviewing 101. Could tell most were bored and didn't want to be there, seemed overly concerned that I actually had other interests besides being a lawyer and arguing with people all day, so I'm sure I may not have fit the profile of aggressive litigator that they were looking for, although 99% of their cases are settled and don't go to trial.
