I was given a number of assignments over the time period I worked
Contract administrative assistant (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 29, 2016
Assignments involved around 20 different companies, for a variety of dates. If the assignment was for more than a couple of days, in the first few days I learned what the job involved, who my co-workers were, where I was to work. Then I did clerical, reception, assisting, secretarial tasks as required. Sometimes the job involved teaching other temp workers what their tasks were.
I learned a great deal about each company and the various departments (e.g., human resources, legal, accounting, etc.), and a variety of tasks (e.g., emergency operations, marketing materials, tax preparation). In only a few assignments I was requested to manage other temps. My co-workers were mostly fine, few if any problems.
There really weren't any hard parts of the job, and most tasks and assignments were enjoyable.
People were almost invariably nice and helpful
