Anyone working for or waiting to start work for the NJ Division of Law? I got my offer at the end of August and they still haven't given me a start date. They keep saying that they will give me a call when the final paperwork is in, but I can't hold out much longer. Bills need to be paid!
Anyone else going through something similar?

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I heard it usually takes that long to start working with the city. In the meantime, why don't you get a temp gig? Usually, doc review pays $40-$45/hr and you can work upwards of 50hours. Pay your bills and get out when the job comes through.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I had a friend who went to one of the NJ county prosecutor's offices who had to wait months to finally get cleared to start work after receiving an offer--in the meantime, she did doc review for that place in Westfield. It sucks, and I have no idea what their hold up is, but just bide your time.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Have you called them? I can't get any information out of them other than assurances that they will call once they "get the final paperwork." They won't even tell me for which section I will be working. Are you waiting for your bar results, too?

yes, I've called several times and I pretty much have been told the same thing-- that they will call as soon as the get the approvals and they cannot say when that will be. When I first got the offer, I was told what he thought my assignment would be but nothing since then. I've been a practicing attorney for a few years.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Thanks for the response. I made another call to Trenton and seemed to have gotten the runaround when I said I would like to the "hiring partner" (making an effort not to use real names here) about my start date. Was told that he would return my call.

As I'm waiting for bar results, I'm finding temp doc review gigs hard to come by.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

right, I think they are very good at the runaround. It really is very frustrating. It's been four months for me, so I wish I could tell you the end is in sight, but I can't. Although, who knows, maybe you'll hear something before I do. Well, I know I've seen document reviews for JDs. Have you registered with all the agencies?

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Thanks for the response. I was told yesterday that the paperwork is now in the Governor's Office. I have no idea if that is an indication that we'll hear something soon. They still couldn't give me a timeframe. I gave them the whole "you're putting me in the poor house" lecture, so hopefully they'll start to realize that there are real people attached to these applications. Very frustrated with the lack of professionalism, especially considering this is the AG's Office.

I'll certainly post once I hear something.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

thanks for the update. Do you have any idea what that means in terms of the timeframe? I hope my paperwork is in the Governor's Office also. I may try and call again tomorrow. Like I said, I've now hit the four month mark, so I'll have to point that out. I understand your frustration.

Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

After a lot of hemming and hawing, I finally got through to Mr. P.T., who was finally able to give me some info (or perhaps it was just more smoke). He's hoping something will happen in the next "few days." At least he was able to verify with which section I will be working. They couldn't tell me for sure, and I was concerned that after all of this I would be placed where I definitely don't want to be. It seems like V. has been instructed to give the stock answer, whereas P.T. has more access to our files and what is going on.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Hm, I guess that's something. I called on Friday and both P.T. and V were not in the office. I guess I'll try again on Monday and I'll keep you posted.

Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I used to clerk at the AG's office during 2006. I left because they laid off 40 DAG's and announced a hiring freeze. Guess what?, the hiring freeze is still ongoing (and w/ this current NJ budget mess it doesn't look it will be lifted anytime soon) but they still interview and still furnish 'offers.' Working at the AG's office as an attorney isn't that great (non-civil service, no state car, cramped offices, low pay and no raises). Currently, I'm doing doc review for Big Law in NYC for about $127,500 a year (assuming they keep me on for a year). Anyway, good luck, oh, and stay away from the tuna salad in the AG's cafeteria. Ciao.

Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I am waiting for my position as DAG to start as well. I also got an offer at the end of August and was told then the wait was going to be 4 to 6 weeks max. The hiring freeze was actually lifted back in June. When I called last week I was also told that our paperwork was at the governor's office. I was also told that it would be any day now over 3 weeks ago. Anyone hear anything today?

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I know there are about 20 applications sitting at the governor's office waiting to be stamped. So there are many of us in this position.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I received my offer the same time you did and was told the same thing. Last I heard (last week) that it would be "any day now." They told me the same three weeks ago.
I can't seem to get a straight answer out of anyone and I'm starting to feel like I was mislead. Not a good way to start off my career with the NJ Govt.

If you can't trust the NJ Govt, who can you trust? (eyes rolling)

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I feel exactly the same way. As though I'm starting the job with a bad taste in my mouth. I really don't think we were mislead with the 'waiting' per se, more with the length of time it would take. The first person I interviewed with early this summer warned me it would take months to start. She had waited 5 months herself. If I had known this, I would have been more prepared. Both financially and mentally for it. I am also waiting for my bar results, but I feel like I could have done something in the meantime. Now I feel like it is too late to look for temp work. As though they might call any second now. Wishful thinking, I know.

Does it vary which department you are in or is it all the same?

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Well, I feel mislead because I had to call back in September in order to find out it would even take 4-6 weeks. It seems like it has never taken 4-6 weeks -- always longer. In that regard, they should have been much more forthcoming. When they told me 4-6 weeks, people who received offers in June were still waiting.

As for temp work --I'm in the same boat. If they were honest (or at least gave us a realistic timeframe) upfront, I would have been working during this time. Back in Sept I was able to afford to sit and wait 4-6 weeks for work to start, but not anymore.

Hello again, based on my experience with clerking at the NJ AG's office, they generally hire (for the DAG) position people finishing clerksips w/in NJ, or in the laternative, people who have 2-3 years experience, thus, its unusual for them to offer anything to someone awaiting their bar results. Also, the starting salary is around $50k (just check the NJ Division of Law's website and click on the application link to see for yourself). Finally, be careful if you're leaving at around 5pm from the Hughes Justice Complex (where the AG offices are located) b/c the other NJ state workders will run you over to leave asap. Also, you have to commit to three (3) years as a DAG and during that time, you cannot engage in any private practice of law (no extra money or soup for you!). Also, it seems the hiring freeze is still in effect b/c they usually hire on a rolling basis, meaning, 'global warming' isn't going to affect the AG's hiring freeze. Finally, to get your foot in the door at AG's office, call Hobart West Solution's Princeton office (they place temps there) and ask to work as a legal assistant, and then you can see for yourself what its like. I gained alot of great experiece there (like actually drafting pleadings, motions and doing legal research and writing) but the pay was nothing to brag about.

The Division of Law routinely hires new grads. The salary is also almost 60k now. It does not matter which section/department you are in.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I just checked the NJ Division of Law's website and the starting salary for new members of the bar (not new "grads") is $52k. Also, while I clerked there I never saw a new 'grad' get hired, they either came from a clerkship (judicial or the AG's office) or another firm. Also, if hiring "new grads" is so routine (as you say) then how come you're still waiting? I know people who work there, I know people on the hiring committee's of the different sections and I know where the cleanest bathrooms are. In any event, good luck to all of you and see you in court.

That job (D.A.G.) is rumored to suck a big one. There is zero chance for advancement and the pay is fucking abysmal. It is, however, better than a small shit-law firm b/c of the government health benefits and ample vacation time + getting off all the bullshit gov't holidays.

Many people seem to go solo after leaving AG- look in any NJ yellow pages lawyer section and half the shit-law solos are "Former Deputy AG's." It probably impresses the morons calling them who tripped and fell or had a fender bender with whiplash. Pretty fucking pathetic and sad, just like everything else in this industry.

I emailed PT, but haven't gotten a response. VM doesn't give any info whatsoever. PT is more forthcoming, but harder to get a hold of. They never put him through on the phone; that's why I emailed. I have a feeling that he won't be returning my email.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

haven't talked to RG. I did talk to the people I did intiially interview with, and there always seems to be a delay. This information would have been helpful months ago. I don't know if it is proper to speak to RG about this, because V and P are more administrative. (Or so it seems). Maybe I'll talk to him about this whole process once we actually get a start date.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Im a DAG. They never hire until you pass your NJ bar. They interviewed me after I passed PA but just kept putting me off until I passed NJ. They never told me that until after I got hired. I thought I wasnt getting the job. What do you want to know about it?

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I did receive an offer from them to start as a legal asst until I pass NJ. The problem is that now they won't give me a start date. Can't even get a timeframe out of them.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

I was in the same boat - but they didnt offer me the legal assistant job. They just let me stew. I wated almost 5 months b/f I started. I was employed at the time (non legal job) so it wasnt too bad.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Did your 5 month wait include the interview process or the time after you were hired? I also was hired as a legal asst until I am admitted in NJ. It does come with a significant pay cut!

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

My 5 month wait included the interview time. But its worth the wait. Dont listen to people on this site. Seems like everyone on this site is always giving advice about something they dont know. As long as you are not looking to make a ton of cash its a great job. Sometimes its frustrating but a great job. You cant really compare your salary to the private sector b/c your benefits & hours completely make up for that (i also get a car). Someone mentioned that its not civil service - so what?. DOL is under PERS which means that you get a pension & benefits similar to a teacher. You will never have a great salary but when I compare my situation to my friends in the private sector I definately feel better. But the grass is always greener & its tempting to leave for more money. Almost everyone I know that has left has attempted to get back in. Ive never seen them take someone back. Also dont be fooled that you wont bust your ass working for the state. We are short handed, understaffed, & overworked. The great thing (depending on your outlook) is that you will be expected to work independently as soon as you walk in the door. No high lighting or busy work. You must hit the ground running. Good luck.

Hello, I also knew a few DAGs that worked at the NJ DOL and they would tell me the experience is great (but the pay is not, and most of them did not, or currently, do not, get a state car). Also, In terms of the possible new hires on this board, what law schools did you go to? what were you're grades/gpa/standing? and what departments w/in the DOL did you interview for?

Also, what is the starting salary for new hires (new members of the bar)? and what type of commitment (in terms of years) do you have to agree to w/ the NJ DOL?

Thanks

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Im not sure of the starting salary - mid 50's. I do know that they pay everyone based on their graduation year. They rarely pay more based on additional experience.

I was told that I was required to give 3 year commitment when I got hired. After I got hired it was never mentioned again. I never signed or entered into an agreement. Maybe they stopped with the requiredment.

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

Anon, I hear you. I'm excited and look forward to starting. I'm starting on 6 months including interviewing and waiting to start! Hopefully any day now.

Metwo, I had to sign a 3 year commitment once I accepted the offer. The entry level salary is now high 50s. Hey, it's pretty good considering NJ or NY district atty offices start at around 40k.

How is it different then an ID boiler room? Is that Insurance Defense work? I dont know anyone that has done that type work but I hear its a crap job. Here the work is very interesting & important (depending on you section I guess). With in a month I worked on a huge case for the state & it was totally my case. My friends at alot of these BIGLAW firms are doing busy work & pieces of the important cases for years. DOL has Great hours, your going to work M-F 9 -5 if you stay later, thats totally up to you. You will never work a weekend -ever. You get 20 vacation days as soon as you walk in the door- they actually encourage you to take these days - you will get letters at the end of the year asking notifying you if you havent taken all your vacation. You get 13 holidays (im off today for election day!)& 3 floating holidays (AL) & 12 sick days. You get PERS & a crazy pension w/ free life time medical if you work 25 years. You have the best medical, dental, & some life insurance provided to you (now for 1.5% of your salary). Many DAG's get work cars. The pay isnt great but all else considered its ok. There was a pay freeze that was bad & it supposedly got lifted. If we really start getting our regular raises again the money isnt bad. Its a salary comparable to a small/medium size firm w/ all our great benefits. Thats the thing w/ gov. work low pay but great hours & benefits. Thats a decision that you need to make for yourself. If you want the big bucks then move on to something else.

Do you people (the ones waiting for NJ DOL to furnish start dates) drink coffee? b/c if you do, then switch to a stronger brand. I mean, come one, it sounds like both of you graduated in May of 2007, just passed the NJ Bar in July of 07, and now you both expect to start at the NJ DOL, has anyone ever heard of an 'Illusory Promise?" Do you really thing that you're going to get paid almot 60K with no fucking real work experience or NJ clerkship. Why don't you get off your asses and get a fucking document review job or something.

Hey -- has anyone heard anything yet? I would like to hear from any current DAsG about their wait times. This is ridiculous!! I'm thinking about starting to look for another job...

I waited 4 and a half months. It is ridiculous, but not that unusual. I guess it does not hurt to look for another job, but you have to figure out what you want.

To the last person who responded -- are you still waiting or have you started?

I'm still waiting. Have you talked to anyone?

I've given up on trying to talk to anyone. They either lie or ignore my calls. I tried to tell PT that I passed NJ and got no response-- very frustrating! I tried getting a hold of RG, but ended up getting a call back from PT's office.

Perhaps they are sick of my bitching -- have you tried?

No response either. I'm not holding my breath about starting before the New Year. I'm really shocked as to what is going on. I would be fine with the wait. I just wish I knew what the true wait was beforehand. I'm sure they are sick of all our bitching. From what I was told, there are 20 of us waiting to start. That's a whole lot of bitching.

I just got a call for an interview for a position there. Crazy that they have you guys, who already were offered a position and accepted waiting. How long ago did you all interview and get the job?

What was the interview like?

Reply
Guest (Oct 20, 2007 - 4:49 pm)

It's been three months since I have accepted the offer. Interviews weren't very intimidating. Best of luck, but my advice is to secure something else in the meantime. Be sure to ask them about these delays.

Any detailed questions they ask or just your general interview questions?

Is it one on one interview/s or multiple people at once? If it's one-on-one, how many did you have?

Thanks.

It's also been 3 months for me since I was offered and accepted the position. I started the app/interview process almost 6 months ago. Definitely do some temp work while interviewing/waiting. You can always leave temp work if they start you sooner than expected.

Interviews were fine. Mine were one-on-one interviews, no panels. Had 3 total. Very nice attys. The waiting afterwards is just brutal though!

I'm a May 2013 grad. I applied for a job here and was interviewed about 3 weeks ago. If nothing's changed in the past six years, it looks like I should look forward to a long wait before hearing anything from them.

interesting - i bumped to see if anyone was in the same boat.

I seriously hope to land a job here. It pays better than most small/mid-law firms and the work (depending on the section) is way more interesting than most terlet law private practice niches. Pleasant work environment too; I was intern there a while back.

Just got a rejection letter today. Honestly I was surprised I was even granted an interview since I was a new grad. Onto the next one.
