    I have been working at Wiley Rein full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wiley Rein is an awesome place to get your feet wet in Washington, D.C. The staff goes above and beyond to provide training and guidance in your first couple of months. Other project assistants/legal assistants are in their mid-upper 20's, and you'll be paired with a Legal Assistant mentor to help you out in your first year.

    Cons

    There is a bit of of a HR/Operations shake up happening in D.C. in general, so turnover is pretty high. Most Project Assistants and Legal Assistants only stay for two years, which can make long-term projects difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Hire/recruit BEFORE things get busy. Short-staffed periods are brutal.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Wiley Rein (Washington, DC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, had a skype interview three weeks later. The HR rep who interviewed me had forgotten our scheduled call, called me 15 minutes late (because I called the office), asked general standard questions about my background and interest in the position, and described the position in more detail. I was invited to an interview at their office later that week. The interviewer told me more about the position and the firm, didn't ask me more than 2-3 questions. I followed up with an email after hearing nothing for two weeks. They had given the position to someone else and I suppose weren't going to bother telling me.
