Excellent supervisor, good team to work with, essential personnel
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – February 24, 2015
My job with the police department is very interesting and I have a great team to work with. I sit at the front window in the lobby about three days a week and take crime reports, answer the telephone, and do fingerprints. One or two days a week I have a secondary job and I sit at a desk in the back office and handle all requests for accident and incident reports that are requested from insurance companies, attorneys or private citizens. The most difficult part of my job is feeling like I am not able to perform the tasks I am assigned in my secondary job. It is very difficult to accomplish the amount of requests we receive in one day. It is also difficult being essential personnel. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We work all holidays and weekends. I am very flexible in my working hours but I would like a bit more consistency. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with my co-workers and when I am able to sit at my desk and work on my secondary assignment. I am a task completer and I actually enjoy doing paperwork.I am happy working with a team or on my own. I have had to learn a tremendous amount of tasks that are performed in the records department at the police department. I went through six months of training. I do feel like the salary is not comparable to the amount of work we do, but that is not all that matters. I worked in the medical field for 23 years and that is where I feel most at home.
Fantastic supervisor, great team of co-workers
Being essential personnel and working holidays and weekends
