Administrative Support at Architectural Design Build Company
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 14, 2015
I began working in the Architectural Production Department 17+ years ago. I worked for multiple Contract Administrators, who had multiple Project Architects working for them. Each Contract Administrator had multiple Projects. Multi-tasking and meeting deadlines was a high priority. Along with the ability to prioritize what to do first. I prepared and tracked documents from the beginning to the end of construction of many Projects. Recently my position has changed with the companies changing structure. Currently, I support the President of HDI, the Architect's Project Manager and several Architect's and Engineers. HBE (HDI is a subsidiary of HBE) will be closing within the next few months. Currently, the work load has completely changed, there are very few projects and employees. Over the past several months, I have learned to do many things never required before, i.e., printing and scanning blueprints, operating the main switchboard, employee timekeeping, revising and printing Specifications. And many other tasks. I have enjoyed working here previously and currently and have learned many things.
Working with many different people, fast pace, doing many different things
Never much communication between upper management and employees
