    Best answer: Why do you want this job? What makes you qualified for this job? What are your future plans? These questions are the generic questions, but still important because they make you show more about yourself. Becareful with the last one because if they get the hint you see the job as a temporary gig (even if its true), they won't bother hiring you.

    Ask if you will be signing for deliveries? If you will be acting as the gatekeeper? If any overtime will be required (at the same time showing a willingness to do so if necessary)? These types of questions show you have thought about responsibilities more than answering phones and greeting the lawyers.

    Ask what the worst part of the job is? Remember an interview is a two way street. You are inspecting them as much as they are inspecting you.

  • Can I get a job as a paralegal if I have a felony on my record?

    I have a felony conviction on my record. I currently have a job but would like to get a degree or certificate as a paralegal. Will any attorneys hire me or is it pointless to even try. I believe my experiences could possibly help others.

    I did work experience at a law firm, I have a law degree and am doing a masters. I have done a lot for the firm I worked for two months for free work experience, and have drafted many legal documents for them for free. the manager is lovely and asked me to return. I said yes however we have not discussed wages but will do soon as my exams finish . I seen a document which shows the salaries they will be paying people and I am not happy its minimum wage. I feel grateful for a job offer but I do think I deserve more for the work I do, how do I go about this? . Sorry for poor grammer etc I am tired. I could basically get a job at a supermarket full time and earn the same money, with having a lot less work to do. At this firm I have to also take work home and I try my best, and now I feel disheartened

    I have been dealing with a co-worker for awhile now calling me names and Intimidating me. And the sad part about it is that she is 32 and I am 23. We both work in a group home setting where the work for me is very easy but when I am paired with her the work is incredibly difficult for she has absolutely no work ethic which leads me doing all of her work and my work. I do not know what her problem is but she has disrespected me far to many time from calling me fat and lazy to stupid. I complaint to HR about her but they switch the scripts on me and said that if I cannot get along with my co worker then I will be transferred to another house. I have been working there for about 6 month now and never had any problems with my co workers except her who has only been working with the company for 4 month now. I am extremely irritated and do not know what to do? Should I look for another job?

  • How do you know if a potential tenant submits a fake reference letter from current/previous employer?

    I have a potential tenant applied for my room for rent.

    I have a potential tenant applied for my room for rent. She disclosed to me that she has bad credit due to her past (unknown, didn't tell me more about it), only been at her current job for 6 months, and submitted 2 e-mail references from current supervisor and previous supervisor. The e-mails do not look legitimate to me. One of the supervisor's e-mail is actually a yahoo e-mail and the other e-mail doesn't have an official supervisor signature and company name at the bottom of the e-mail. She has expressed it a few times that she's really interested in my room, however, my gut is telling me to not go with this one because of these circumstances. Should I move on to another candidate?

    I got a job at a fast food restaurant and I’ve been an employee there for a good 8 months but I’ve been actually working for 4 months. Around April they cancelled all my shifts and then stopped giving me shifts until late May/early June they took my name off the roster completely, but I wasn’t the only person, about 5 other peoples names were taken off. They didn’t say anything to me or warn me about anything. This also happened about this time last year when I got a job at a little business, I only worked 4 shifts and they decided to take me off the roster without telling me anything only later to find that someone (that was family of the owners) had lied and said I was doing a terrible job and would leave the storefront when customers would come. Anyway back to the main point, is this bad employers or is it me because I won’t lie I am a bit shy when it comes to new jobs and having to learn new things but I thought I was fine until a couple weeks into the job. So is it me or the employers?

  • My work hasn’t scheduled me to work in 3 weeks? What do I do? What can I do?

    Best answer: You might be well advised to call your supervisor and find out why you aren't scheduled. If they didn't have enough people, there's no reason you shouldn't be scheduled unless you no longer have a job. It would have been nice if they'd told you. They are not required by law to give you hours.

    My work put me up in a hotel this weekend, while I was out working I had left a little cannabis in my hotel room, it was smelly but I did not once smoke there, when I got back the manager stopped me and said there was drugs in my room and they had complaints about the smell, it’s possible people smelled weed on me in the lift but I never once smoked inside and they knew that, The manager then told me to pack my things and leave or he would call police, I went to my room followed by security and just left, i remained polite and co operated as I had to get back to work also, I asked them if they could keep it to themselves as my boss booked it, and was told they would have to fill a report so he will end up knowing, So my question is if I get fired because they email my boss could I sue as they have no proof or evidence that I had any cannabis and kicked me out and cost me a job over a smell, This was in the U.K.
