    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

  • Do you have to have a license to be a paralegal?

    Best answer: You need to complete an ABA- approved Paralegal program. Typically, that's 2 years of full-time studies, typically offered through a community college.

    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?

    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.

    So I have been working at a grocery store called Freshco for a bout two weeks now. I have had no problems with anything yet. I’ve been working well, I can even keep up with experienced people, I have been getting a long and have had no slip ups other than a 5 minute late because my bike chain broke off. I even took another shift within the same hour I was called to fill in for another person. Now I am also actually sick. I’m stressing out though because i’m worried since i’ve been working for two weeks and have already called in sick they will toss me. Just as an opinion do you think they will fire me? It’s a grocery store chain like nofrills or walmart even.

    Best answer: Yes he was rude. You could have looked him in the eye and said something like "Well (slight pause) I am not shallow enough to make judgments on rumors and innuendos.

Some lawyers don't assign until it is almost too late - I'm talking minutes or seconds. The stutter - What is mild? Is it constant or is it only on occasion?

    not a manager or lead, Im just a full time worker. This new female manager who does the scheduling is trying 2 get me 2 work past my availability. Part time or full time worker have the right to have an availability unless they’re a manager or lead Who R suppose 2 have open availability, my availability is 6am to 7pm. Better then most. She says I have 2 have Open availability because Im full time but I mention that other full-time ppl dont have open availability. Then she tries 2 pull the seniority card. Work at a grocery store, each department has A seniority. I mention that there are people(who R female) below me in salad bar base on seniority but she scheduled them earlier when the union book says she cant. I should B getting it B4 them. Then she is trying to play the availability card. It’s like Which is it, seniority or availability? I stood up for my self. She changed my schedule twice after dept manager changed it back I think this manager is one of those extreme feminist who think men are scum & that they shouldn’t take anything from them. There’s another incident with that manager was with a male coworker. Dipping strawberries on Mom Day, department manager told him 2 stop at a certain time, she told this worker 2 stop early, the worker contacted the department manager & he told him to continue, she came back & puff her chest out, pulled rank. Demeaning this worker because he stood up 4 himself. I’m trying to get another job but no one is answered my application

  • How Is My Co-Worker Making More Than Me?

    Best answer: Most likely she is paid more because she negotiated better. Or possibly your boss does not share your opinion on who is the better employee.
