Office Specialist 2 (Current Employee), Keizer, OR – February 24, 2014
Pros: management with reasonable expectations and accommodating style
Cons: the 30 minute lunch is a bit limiting and makes for rushed eating.
I work in the Medical Assistance Programs section of the Oregon Health Authority, as an Office Specialist 2, responsible for processing Cover Oregon insurance applications. The job is equal parts routine and non-routine, which makes the job enjoyable for the variation in mental intensity. Part of the time is spent doing data entry, but it is also important – more... to assess the completeness of the application and the adherence to the rules of required information. Every family is different and I have enjoyed having my eyes opened to just how much diversity there is in the concept of "an unconventional family." Management is equal parts accommodating and demanding, and generally strives to create a productive work environment without being harsh or unreasonable. The workforce is diverse in age and socio-economic background, but the gender mix is decidedly weighted to female, at a ratio of about 9:1. The dress code is office casual. – less
