Setup For Failure
LEGAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 September 2017
The lawyer I was hired to be assistant to knew that I was a brand new assistant just out of school and he assured that this would be a great learning opportunity for me and he would be a great teacher. He did not have the patience or skills for being a teacher and was always yelling at me. Because he was such a senior lawyer I had no chance with HR for them to see my side.
