Uneventful cubical work with little chance for advancement
Administrative & Media Services Coordinator (Current Employee) – Eatontown, NJ – August 31, 2012
- A typical day at work involves sitting at a cubicle all day, scheduling meeting after meeting, while providing customer support for those in need.
- I have learned how to operate different online programs such as MyVRM and Lotus Notes. It has sharpened my customer support skills and my ability to work under pressure when receiving demands from eager customers.
- Management here, from what I have heard, has never been steady. The manager of the company has never held the position for more than 2 years, and our most recent manager just got fired recently. From what I have noticed over my short time, is that this company struggles with direction, and this starts with the lack of leadership from the management team. There is very little managing going on and little direction to new employees like myself. It is pretty much a learn on your own, train on your own atmosphere.
- My co-workers are the best part about the company. Everyone I work with on my side of the company is very friendly, outgoing, and easy to get along with. This is one of the few things that makes this company enjoyable.
- The hardest parts of this job are: driving 40 minutes to work, sitting at a desk for 8-9 hours a day doing something that is the least bit challenging, and knowing that there is little to know room for advancement in the company (especially with the recent "hiring freeze")
- The most enjoyable part of the job would, again, have to be the relationship I share with my co-workers.
