    Paralegal Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at DOJ Antitrust Division (San Francisco, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Very informal / conversational. Not that bad, but hard to get an interview (the DOJ gets a ton of applicants, and vets get first dibs). Once you get an interview, your chances go up dramatically. You also have to pass a drug / background test.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty much all behavioral. What do you like to do in your free time? Why are you interested in law / prosecution, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. Take it or leave it offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DOJ Antitrust Division in April 2019.

    Interview

    I had a one-on-one interview with a Paralegal supervisor who essentially serves as an HR representative for the division. My interview was around 2 hours long, which I am told is fairly unique. I would say about 45 minutes of that consisted of answering various questions. The rest of the time, the hiring manager answered questions that I prepared and told me about their experience. I'm not sure how true this is, but I've been told by multiple people who work at the DOJ, that if you make it to the Paralegal interview stage, you essentially already have the job.

    • Tell me about a group assignment that you have had either at work or in school? What was your role? Are you type A or type B?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DOJ Antitrust Division.

    Interview

    Attended a recruiting "interview" that did not turn out to be an interview so much as an information session. Did not take much away from it other than that I should watch USA jobs for the posting.
