Exciting company with growth opportunities
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 19, 2017
I was hired for clerical support in the Retail Division and assisted the Executive Assistant. I was thankful for this chance to train with her and learn how to operate the computer software, Wordperfect I think at that time. I learned how to answer calls and manage a busy phone while still getting my work done. I soon became Executive Assistant for the President and Vice-President of the Retail Division of The Irvine Company. I managed their calendars, scheduled meetings, travel and helped in planning retail conferences. I did a lot of typing of correspondence and presentations. I communicated with tenants, retail prospects and managers daily. I contributed to the company newsletter information about what was happening and new in our retail developments in order to create awareness. I even gave reviews about the new restaurants. I enjoyed, of course, sampling the food, but I also enjoyed writing the review. The environment was busy but everyone was pleasant and worked well together. I believe I could have advanced further if I had stayed. Management was always encouraging development. I had to leave because I moved.
Learning new things and having encouragement and consideration of my employers
