Somewhat sressfull workplace but a great opportunity to learn how to be organized
Secretary (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 24, 2013
I worked at that job temporary for a summer vacation in addition to my main caregiving job. My duties included secretarial work, such as organizing patients charts, taking phone calls, making appointments.
The culture of the workplace I was working at was somewhat on the lower level, compare to my present job, as many of my coworkers were stressed about their work and complaining about the management.
The hardest part was to speak with clients on the telephone when sometimes I could not get exactly what they wanted the first time. I had to ask them to repeat what they were saying, and some of them would get impatient. However, I learned a lot from that workplace. I learned to be organized, to have things prepared ahead of time, and be able to foresee the possible needs and questions of clients.
