Administrative Assistance (Former Employee), Manassas, VA – November 11, 2013
Pros: work hours, compensation, no micro-managing from contractor and constant flow of work, face to face contact with patients.
Cons: high turnover, call volume demand, shortage of staffing and work space
My position was highly stressful contract position at a military medical facility, but the company(contractor), management and command were very caring and understanding. The entire team was very supportive. A typical day was one of very high call volume and problem solving non-stop. Face to face contact with patients sometimes was both rewarding and stressful. I worked with a great team even though the turn over rate was high due to the high stress and requirements. The most enjoyable part of the job was the work location, a military medical clinic, and the family like relationship among the staff.
