A typical day at work involves sitting in front of a computer, analyzing immigration cases, and typing 8 - 10 hours a day. I've learned about immigration law and how to apply it to removal orders. Management is not flexible. At an annual review, they will point out a missed a comma and not give any credit to any good work done. The hardest part of the job is the isolation and dealing with poor managers. There is no enjoyable part of the job.
Create design intent drawings, project conference calls, traveling to sites, research, putting out fire, and lack of clear direction. Upper management continues to work in the past, without current procedures or in a progressive thought process.
Provide courtroom & support space for those who believe in a good cause.
Length of time it takes to provide leases through to opening for hearing cases.
Got to work on pretty much everything. Loved being there every day. Every day was different, but that is precisely what makes it fun to work there. We were part of the project team, and that was a lot of fun working there. Coworkers were very nice to each other!
I started at DOJ as an undergraduate intern in the Pathways program. I am extremely thankful to have been a part of the program because it exposed me to the life of a Federal employee. I have learned and experienced so many things that I know will benefit me in my future endeavors. Additionally, being in a Pathways intern was a lead way into me becoming a full time employee right after graduating from undergrad.

Jobs at United States Department of Justice
I was a contractor with the US Department of Justice, so I was not privied to pay raises and evaluation bonuses like the government employees. I think that something that could be improved. I enjoyed the people that I worked with. Immigration Court was an amazing and interesting experience. Helping people in this difficult procedure and world of immigration law was meaningful.
Fun office, very understanding and family cultured environment
as a contractor no paid time off for weather and shut downs
At EOIR, as a volunteer intern, assignments were fairly basic, such as drafting letters. Using samples of attorneys' previous work, this part was simple. Some assignments involved listening to lengthy court recordings looking for mention of specific issues. Sometimes, this required going through quite a bit of chaff to get to the wheat.
Good place to work with many opportunities and very flexible work schedules. Each day was different. It could be very relaxed or extremely fast paced due to often receiving very short turnarounds on special projects. The only downfall was lack of promoting within the agency.
Serving your government and representing the government is a privilege. If you are an attorney, I recommend taking the opportunity to learn from some of the best attorneys in the country.
