The first year was a year of learning new things with the building and polishing of my skills.
Corporate Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – September 26, 2017
Life at Recology was as a rule predicable, challenging and a good place to sharpen your skills in Microsoft Office as well as a wide range of overall corporate office responsibilities, and certain protocols for conference and Board of Director meetings.
The initial management I was under was where most of my growth occurred as I was thankful to have had a skilled, highly qualified, and seasoned manager who was well trained to work with people and teach skills in order to successfully get whatever job done that needed to be accomplished.
She took the time to get to know you and spent time sharing what she knew and was happy to pass her knowledge on to me. After a year, a new untrained manager became my supervisor and the quality of relationship and management became very problematic. Even with this type of challenge, I was able to push myself to always place my best foot forward by doing all in my power to nourish our relationship and implement my skill sets for the benefits of the company and others.
The workplace culture was one of pleasant camaraderie, helpfulness and hardworking individuals.
The most difficult part of the job was during the second year under a new, under qualified, and unseasoned management.
The most enjoyable part of the job were all the people I came in contact with internally as well as externally, building relationships, and serving others in a variety of corporate level skills. The work which my position encompassed was varied and highly enjoyed.
Employee owned company, beautiful office environment, many benefits, opportunities to learn new skills and good people
Lack of good personable and skilled managers
