    I worked at Counsel On Call full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Caring leadership at MSC in Nashville. Always polite and helpful. Pay rate is better than other agencies for experienced attorneys, $30+ per hour. Congenial atmosphere with snacks, drinks, lunch on Wednesdays, and holiday parties. Nice coworkers who I enjoyed being around. Some oddballs and unpleasant people but they were the exception. We are lawyers after all! Did offer some free CLE. Very flexible with part time, moms, etc once you prove yourself. I think they may now require 35 hours per week. Benefits are after a number of hours accrued.

    Cons

    Can have weeks between projects and can't count on specific time periods because it may finish early. Some problem/unpleasant reviewers always are working while others aren't.

    Not their fault but have learned that Document review is looked down upon by most legal employers if you are trying to go back to salaried employment. My experience, they don't really understand what it entails or even count it as substantive experience. So the longer you do it, it may be looked as unfavorable when you are interviewing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of underperforming/lazy reviewers who have consistently failed so others can have work. Don't separate so much into corporate secondment jobs versus managed services.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Questionable as to whether this recruiting company is legitimate or if it is a resume collector scam. It was difficult to talk to a human being at this company despite countless number of open paralegal positions. When I was finally contacted by a "recruiter" she wanted me to send her my resume and personal information. I kept pushing for a phone call to discuss first. She reluctantly schedule a phone call, but never called. Thank goodness I never sent my resume or personal information. I would recommend caution before sending personal information, as it feels like a scam.

    Interview Questions

    • None because the "recruiter" never called me at the scheduled time.   Answer Question
