My days at P&G were filled with growing and learning opportunities. I learned to work with care for the outcome of my manager's day and work performance as well as my own. A respect for the department and your colleagues gave purpose and pleasure to my work.
My day would consist of various duties from scheduling flights, hotels, meetings, catering, product releases, maintaining spreadsheets, coordinating itineraries, and general office duties.
The workplace environment was extremely diverse and full of cultural exposure.
The hardest part of the job was meeting expectations with little communication with managers. The most enjoyable part of being with Proctor and Gamble was the being able to experience an corporate setting.

I spent slightly over 10 years working at P&G. My experience was excellent with both the company and managers / teams of which I was a member. P&G focuses on work/life balance and all employees were treated as equal on my customer teams.
Excellent work environment, consumer products company

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Bear River City, UT – April 13, 2017
The construction of the 2 million square foot facility was long and difficult in Utah winters. Through their great safety conscious culture there were over 1 million man hours without a single accident.I assisted in documentation of various safety programs and the initiation of safety programs for the Chief Electrical Officer.
On a typical day I supported five brand managers and had to prioritize the heavy work load ensuring that all deadlines were met. A strong sense of urgency was needed everyday. I also made staff travel arrangements.
A typical day as an Administrative Assistant including answering phones, checking voicemails and email and completing them according to importance. I learned that no question is a dumb question. Management is very important for growth. Communication is a must. My co-workers were awesome. The hardest part of the job is not receiving requested information in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of the job was everything from co-workers to assignments and seeing a project to the end.
