I love secretarial work, and this was my first experience. I learned a lot and still use those skills in everyday life.
I would type reports that were submitted by field service representatives or the research and development team. These reports needed copied (in bulk) for meetings. I would also make reservations or answer phones in the office. I maintained the company library, that was there for the convenience of the employees.
All my co-workers were good to work with. My bosses were good people and respectful. Probably the hardest part was waiting for the copy machine to work properly, since it got a lot of use.
I really enjoyed the research and development department, since I was just an assistant in field service. But that was also a great department to work in.
