Long hours, little pay, uptight atmoshere.
Attendance Secratary (Current Employee) – Clovis Schools – March 16, 2015
I never know what is going to happen at work, a typical day cannot be predicted. There are so many scenarios I have been told that it will take over a year for me to become even a little comfortable with the secretarial job.
I have learned to multitask, use the attendance program to monitor excused/unexcused absences of students, and how to register students from within or out of district.
Micromanagement is the best way to describe this particular individuals management style. You are expected to respond to situations the way they would....which is impossible, because no two people think alike.
Working with another individual who is equally as picky as the 'boss" is frustrating...I only have one other coworker that I must deal with, but I feel there is a "pecking order" I feel that what ever management does to her, she does to me.
The hardest part of the job is the emotional stress you feel when you are made to think you are not doing your job well enough, even though it is supposed to take a year to learn everything.
The most enjoyable part of the job are some of the other co-workers who are supportive and caring.
An hour for lunch.....if you get to take it.
A substancial amount of work for basically minimum wage.
