Pros: very flexible and accomodating hours while attending college.
As an administrative assistant I generated and closed work orders, encumbered monies on contractors' supplemental contracts, acted as liason between building tenants, contractors, and management. Maintained communications between the aforementioned players, via telephone and email. Ordered parts and supplies through the U of O's Purchasing Dept. Our crew was responsible for 17 off-campus properties.
I learned a great deal about the inner-workings of property management, and became proficient in the use of FAMIS software, MS Office and MS Access.
I had a manager and group of co-workers whom I respect and like very much.
Though this job was challenging at times, I didn't find it difficult in any way.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping my coworkers.
