    Former Employee - Legal Intern in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Dallas County as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The attorneys here care about the work that they do. It's not a plea bargain they're looking for like most defense attorneys, the PDs care about each client that they represent. If need be, they'll come in on the weekend to prep for a case.

    Cons

    The office is a little outdated. Would be helpful to have more offices rather than cubicles, for privacy reasons when meeting with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be a benefit to get a larger budget to hire newly licensed attorneys - by training them, the PDs office will be able to assist more Dallas residents

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Dallas County.

    Interview Details

    Took place in the engine room. Head manager asked questions relating to what you know. He writes it all down. Somewhat intimidating atmosphere if you're not used to this. He wants to know you're technical skill relating to the position. Electronic tech deals with mechanical repair on doors, installing bulbs and ballast in light fixtures (277v),installation of exit lights (480v), changing air filters in air handlers, knowing basics about computer logic and how relays work., plumbing (unclogging drains using a snake,plunging toilets), Wielding is a + but not required. Also helps if you know how a closed loop system works for ac/heating (water in from reservoir, runs through filter, into a chiller etc). Know you're tools, tho only tools you will ever use will be, flat head, Phillips, wire stripper/cutters, tape measure, box cutter, ratchet (1/8th socket) and security bits (provided), rubber mallet, pliers, adjustable wrench. You have to provide you're own tools excluding security bits, drill bits.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions pertaining towards sorting conflicts in the workplace. Safety questions and previous achievement or recognition by managers.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Pay was non negotiable, the salary analysis was done prior from going to the interview. Salary is based off of experience and education. Associate degree accounts for 4 years relevant experience. Bachelors is 8 years relevant, pay is adjusted accordingly. This rule of thumb goes for all positions in Dallas county. All full time employees get full benefits standard, 7% mandatory into 401k. Lost about $4 a hour after all benefits and taxes were taken out of check.
