None. I loved those in management positions. They would often check on me to see if I had assignments and to see if I was enjoying my time as a law clerk. They made sure I was at every office event so that I could meet different attorneys.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Department of Justice (Houston, TX).
You arrive at the office on the 23rd floor, check in with the receptionist. A member from the Human Resources Department will escort you to a conference room filled with your interview panel. The panel will introduce themselves and describe the role that they play in the office. They will each ask a series of questions and then ask if you have any questions. They will thank you for your time and then Human Resources will contact you by mail/email if you were or were not selected. If selected, you will undergo a background clearance. This process usually takes about 60 - 90 days. If successful, you will be provided a start date.
