Administrative Assistant/Billing Clerk, San Diego, CA - October 4, 2017
Some days were extremely busy and other days you were able to get your work done. At times, county and home office would overload us with work and we were expected to finish our tasks and county billings on time which was not a problem but sometimes there were too many crisis that occurred in the week that one would be emotionally and physically drained. I enjoyed the time off and at time some our staff (who rarely stayed long at the company). Perks were free food, unlimited time off, and good benefits. I learned a plethora about being organized myself, multitasking, dealing with extreme conflict, and assuring my work always got done on time. The most stressful part was the safety issue, because we dealt with clients with extreme mental illness, the admin staff were not protected and we would get assaulted physically (at times) and emotionally. This job is, I would say, for the tough kids. If you can't handle stress well I wouldn't take the chance. Overall it was a learning experience I will never forget.
