    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greenville, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart P.C. (Greenville, SC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    At the time, the person conducting the interview was rather unfriendly/critical. I was extremely put off by this person, but gave the actual attorney I would be working for a chance, as I knew that I wouldn't be interacting with the Office Administrator that much.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was unable to negotiate the terms/salary. I took a massive pay, but had no choice because my move was urgent.
