Not a paralegal but my friend just quit her job she said she work 9-7 most days without extra pay and she was overworked. I have another friend who loves it. Make sure to ask about work load my first friend is a hard worker so the fact she can’t do her work load on 40 hours after two years means it may have been too much
I am just offering general advice, not specific to paralegal. If you plan on being a licensed professional and you have opportunity to work as some sort of assistant in that profession, take it. Think of it as an internship, so you learn if the profession is for you, get necessary experience for your application to law/med/advanced schooling, and obtain connections/mentors.
Almost all of these assistant jobs- paralegal, nurse aide, pharmacy tech, medical office receptionist, etc. Are not ideal jobs for life if you are very educated and driven. They are essential dead end jobs because the only way to advance is through advanced education.
Any kind of secretarial work is a dead end, low respect and low paying job.
