Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Administrative Assistant in U.S. Department of Commerce

Oportunity to learn and share knowledge. Wonderful people.

I was reviewing the personnel we needed, comparing with the applications we had and calling the persons that applied to interview them and in case the interview results were positive, hire them. Then I hired them with all the paper work involved as E-Verify, etc.After that I performed the data entry for the pay roll. Computing hours, salary per hour, travel expenses. If I had personnel with doubts about they payments, I contacted them and solve their doubts.I learned the government system of data entry for pay roll.I really enjoy this because this was challenging.


Wonderful environment, friendly people and supportive bosses.


A little far from my house.
