A typical day as a Administrative Assistant at Severn Trent incuded answering phones, making copies, sending letters out to residents, dealing with angry residents all mean while keeping a very positive and upbeat attitude.
I have learned how to let things go rather than holding on to them and allowing the previous problem to spill over into the next situation.
My coworkers are my family away from home!
The hardest part of my job trying to be sure to leave work at work. Even away from work I am always trying to figure out how to make something better.
The most enjoyable part of my job is learning new things and meeting all kinds of different people.

Accounting Associate (Former Employee) – Texas – April 8, 2016
I wouldn't recommend this company there is nepotism and unkept promises. I was hired for a position but once I started they put a hold on it and then interviewed someone else's daughter for the same position. And a lot of the benefits and overtime benefits discontinued. It got really difficult so I left. I really had hoped I could build a career there but, growth is not a possibility.
Insurance benefits are responsible
Unfair treatment and you will be lied to for their benefit.

customer service (Former Employee) – Fleming Island, FL – January 9, 2016
I loved working there, even though it was for a short time. Putting together displays, keeping the store tidy, interacting with shoppers, were all wonderful.
The only downside to working here is it's part time. They only offer full time to managers. Which means there are no benefits. Some day when I retire and only need to work part time I will reapply to work there. It really is a fun place to work!
administrative assistant (Current Employee) – Fleming Island, FL – January 9, 2016
When I started at Severn Trent Services it was a great place to work. There was promise of advancement, the manager was fantastic, and I looked forward to going to work every day.
My manager trained me in payroll, P-Card expenses, coding invoices, and much more. I was constantly encouraged to push myself to my full potential and some day I would move up in the company.
The hardest part of the job was when residents would yell at us for things that weren't our fault. We were the CDD side of the community and we got a lot of HOA complaints. It was hard to explain to them that we were the fun part.
The most enjoyable part was interacting with the wonderful residents. I enjoyed talking to them and watching them grow. It was like a family.
