United States Treasury Department - IRS
Audit Research Assistant - Secretary (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – May 16, 2018
Initially my employment with the IRS was an amazing experience. It was a challenging position and required me to draw on of all of my skills and work at my peek performance on a daily basis. No two days were ever the same. I had a wide range of responsibilities and was constantly training new managers and agents. We had an amazing "work family" who also enjoyed time together outside of the workplace. At the time of my departure, I was responsible for agents and managers working cases to the south of Portland, Salem, Eugene, Bend, Medford, Redding and Chico. In addition to these cities, I was often called from other states to assist with various projects. The cutbacks that are being dealt to the IRS are impeeding our ability to do the work that needs to be done for the public. When clerical or any support staff leave, their positions are not being back filled. Their work is simply redistributed to the remaining staff. When I started in 1988 we had over 24 admin/clerical support staff for the main offices in Oregon. The day I departed left the state of Oregon with 2. I was to doing the work of several people, receiving the pay of one. My reasons for leaving are personal.
great insurance plans, 208 hours vacation per year and 104 hours of sick leave, paid holidays, amazing co-workers
over abundance of work and not enough hours in the day to complete it all
