Glorified Data Entry Clerk
Assistant Paralegal (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – 2 August 2018
A typical day is monitoring emails for client support documents, uploading documents to case files in the system, preparing high volume petitions, filing high volume petitions in your small cube. The office is located in an older building so there are ongoing heating, A/C, water, and electrical issues. During cap season you work overtime and it can be very stressful as you are expected to meet quotas and deadlines. There is very little human interaction and the job is very robotic. I had really bad eye strain from working at this job because I literally stared at a computer screen 8 hours a day. Most of the workers are college grads that leave after a year- so there is high turnover. The pay was on the low end and benefits were basic. Not many perks working here. I don't think this is a good job long term since its just a glorified data entry clerk. Also, the assistant paralegals, paralegals, and senior paralegals basically all do the SAME job- you just get a new title if you actually stay here long term. The attorneys at the team meetings always try to glorify our data entry job telling us that we are changing people's lives and bringing skilled foreign nationals and their families across the world. Interesting thing, they are now outsourcing more jobs to one of their biggest offices in India. I am not sure if they are trying to maximize profits or they cannot find workers in the US.
Paycheck and some great people working there
Boring job, low pay and benefits
