Great workplace with supervisor, but the trainers were not very patient people
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – December 9, 2012
I would open the office and check my emails. Then I would proceed to work on whatever was the required information on a very tight schedule. There was a different task usually scheduled for every day and when it was time to do the layout of the magazine, some items had to be pushed to another day. The magazine was the most important part of this position. I felt comfortable working with my direct supervisor on this aspect of the job, but I had two supervisors and I was not as comfortable with her style of communicating what she needed.
Management was only concerned with certain reports that needed to be fulfilled at various times of the month. They were very respectful when they talked with me and I even thought they liked me. That is the hardest part of my jobs, I want everyone to like me and my work and anywhere you go, you are always going to be faced with some type of adversity or someone who does not care for your particular work style and ethics.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my direct supervisor. Our communication between us was excellent and she was one of a kind boss. I also enjoyed being the only person in the office, when she was on the road. I am very comfortable working alone with minimal supervision. If I would have had the right trainers and ones that spoke with me respectfully, I think I could have learned all the aspects that this position required.
working with minimal supervision
poor training and trainers that did not respect me.
