Brokerage Assistant Front Desk
Brokerage Assistant/Front Desk (Former Employee) – Oak Brook, IL – June 1, 2018
Great pay. Great benefits. Beautiful office. Unfortunately, it all comes at a price. What the job description fails to include is that they want you to be in three places at the same time. They want you to be glued to the front desk chair so you can answer the phones, while buzzing the pompous, arrogant, privileged brokers in, because they are above having to use their key card. They also fail to mention that you MUST have the kitchen clean and coffee ready at ALL times for the brokers, who must always be catered to. It is also imperative to clean the conference rooms at all times, or you will be reprimanded. If you want a job that is very isolating, lonely, boring, lowers your esteem, as well as self worth, then by all means ... this is the job for you. With the high turnover this position has had, they really need to reconsider who is running that office, before she runs it into the ground.
Management is horrible, as are the majority of the brokers. Not a friendly office at all.
