Paralegel for Mortgage Closings
Real Estate Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Jackson, TNDecember 7, 2015
There was no formal training. My Co-worker would show me things to do to assist her in the day until she felt I was capable of doing certain things on my own. Spent a lot of time sitting trying to find things to be productive.

This was a fast pace, high energy position. Lots of interruptions from handling calls that were not for our dept. Had to listen and divert calls to the appropriate person.

I enjoyed the fast pace and multi tasking. Once I was able to function on my own.

Hardest part was to clean up files from one attorney. Meaning it put you behind in your work flow. Otherwise great to work with.

They let me go because they were not able to properly train me with all that the job requirements. I was told I had great confidence and extremely friendly to clients.
