Coworkers are a plus, supportive and helpful. No backstabbing.
no flexibility for parental duties
Advice to Management
Allow comp time for trial preparation.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at US Department of Justice.
I had an initial telephonic/ videoconference interview with panel, followed by in person interview with different panel . The latter interview lasted over an hour, and was primarily --
though not exclusively -- aimed at fit with the office. The hiring process was lengthy.
