Pros: my office celebrates employee birthdays.
Cons: i am not eligable for aws or telework
My typical work day begins with checking my emails and responding appropriately. I then review all travel authorizations and vouchers and notify travel planners of any changes. After the corrections have been made I receive a notice letting me know that the travel authorization or voucher is ready to be reviewed. I then forward the documents to the – more... Administrative Officer for approval. I may be asked to prepare travel orders and vouchers, and occasionally travel to other locations to train travel planners. I review travel policies and sent updated to the travel planners. I log all Title 42 and Title 38 Cases in the Workflow Inofmration Tracking System and check to see if there is an existing file on the individual and prepare packets which will eventually be sent to the committee and I hand-deliver the packets. I execute all property requests for laptops, cables, docking stations, and mouse. I use a required vendor list to check for office supplies and enter the items in an online cart that is sent to the Division Coordinator. I also must submit the order in the Purchasing Online Tracking System that is approved by the Card Holder and the Administrative Officer. I prepare Title 42 notebooks. I make adjustments to division timecards, schedule meetings, and book conference rooms. I type letters, compensation documents, charts and prepare executive recruiting packets. I run HR reports and collect data pertaining to salaries. I've learned that human resources is an intricate part of the workforce and good customer service is needed throughout the different divisions. I interact with management occasionally and respect his/her position. My co-workers are caring and pleasant to work with. The hardest part of my job is to train the travel planners and to get them to meet deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the my job is being the "go to person." I like knowing that people can rely on me to get the job done. – less
