I was the front desk clerical support for the school, and a liason between parents and staff. The hardest part of the job was to hold back sympathy
Receptionist/Front Desk, Clerical Asst. (Former Employee) – Edison, NJ – October 7, 2014
As a School for children with disabilities you would think that the atmosphere would be depressing, but to the contrary, it was a very upbeat and positive workplace. I was a receptionist/front desk and
clerical support for the entire school and OT, PT, and ST departments, such as therapies, wheelchair clinic, and augmentative clinic. I operated a multi-line phone system, and participated in many projects as necessary. Interaction with students and their families was a bonus you could not replace.
Pleasant atmosphere, comradery with staff and students. Excellent benefits and salary increases.
The only con I have is that they needed to reduce staff due to budgetary concerns, lower enrollment, reduction in state aid.
