    Indirect speech- In" I was being in my present job", don't we change present?

    I was reading a sentence and I wonder whether the sentence in indirect speech is correct with the word present.
    Next he asked how long I had worked as an editor and how much I was being paid in my present job.
    Don't we have to change the word present? If yes, what word should I use instead?
    Thanks in advance.

    We don't have to change it.
