    I worked at Covington & Burling full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They run the administrative support department well. Most folks I worked with were happy with Covington.

    Cons

    My own secretarial supervisor should not have been a supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to the admin assistants/secretaries: the attorneys would be lost without them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covington & Burling (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was very laid-back and conversational! The questions were thought-provoking but really aimed towards allowing me to express who I am as a person. There were two current employees at the interview, so I also got to answer both of their questions.
