Opened office and attended to emails and voicemails. Took care of public requests, instructed assistants as to daily procedures and new requests.
Prepared for meetings, scheduled rooms for meetings, set up refreshments, and corresponded with supervisor on items needed for the day.
Handled maintenance of equipment by calling proper resources, provided help where other departments or co-workers needed it, created brochures, programs or other documents where needed, and took notes at meetings.
I learned several different software and management techniques as well as problem solving procedures.
I managed two to three assistants.
The workplace was relaxed but had moments of stress when deadlines had to be met.
The hardest part of the job was handling complaints when the supervisor was not available.
The most enjoyable part was helping those who came in and knowing they were satisfied.
Free food, gists from clients and co-workers, smiling faces
Upset clients that I could not help. Change over in supervisors was hard.
