    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Texas Attorney General in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview panel was the office's 3-person management team. They took turns asking a total of 8 questions, hoping to find out if your personality aligns with the goals of the agency as a whole and the office environment they hope to achieve.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Attorney General (Jourdanton, TX).

    I filled out an application online and about a couple weeks later was called to set up a time to be interviewed. When I went in, I met with both managers of the office one was over the lawyers and the other one was over the office.
