Pleasant job with good people
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – April 22, 2014
My typical day involved coming in around 10 am or so, greeting my supervisor and co-workers and then opening up Job Boss. For about an hour or 2 I would look over and close down invoices. Then, I would go to the file room and catch up on filing. In the middle of the day, I would sort out mail, stamp them, sometimes also make scans. At around 2:50, I would have about a 10 minute break in which I would go to the resting area the company has outside. Throughout the day, different co-workers would come and visit me to finish whatever business it was they needed to do. During that time some of my co-workers would just exchange small talk where as others would spend an extra minute or two catching up on weekend activities or even sometimes conflicts and struggles they were having. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to do my duties on my own schedule. I can choose when I would like to do each job. Getting to know everyone because it was a smaller company was nice also. The management could be a bit shaky at times, but overall, it was okay. The hardest part of the job was doing pretty much the same things everyday. Routine can be nice sometimes because I can just go on autopilot, but after a while it gets a bit harder to stay focused because the work gets a bit dull.
not an uptight atmosphere, casual, close-knitted (almost like family)
short breaks, no perks
