Receptionist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Receptionist?

Receptionist in Mount Martha:
"Office Conditions."
Pros: The people I work with, the tasks I am required to do. I am interested in real estate.
Cons: Doing the cleaning. The pay rate.

Receptionist in Hervey Bay:
"A day at the Office."
Pros: I like the challenge of something different, usually there is something new that arises and my skills need to be renewed in some aspect. Great secure work environment and fantastic boss. Pleasant work environment, never had a problem. Flexible hours. My phone is also the work phone so my employer does pay for the expenses.
Cons: It can be very stressful, sometimes working very late. My position has three positions included into one, so the work load is large. My role can be very demanding and having clients call at anytime can be rather annoying. My work never seems to stay at the office so to speak, I am always thinking of things I need to do, people to call etc. The patients in this particular area are very pushy and some really don't seem to appreciate how much I go out of my way to help with anything they ask, usually not part of my job description either. I do know that I go out of my way to help and offer to come in on my day off, so I assume I don't like to say 'no'

Receptionist in Sydney:
Pros: It is fairly laid back and chilled out as long as you do what you need to do and get your work done.
Cons:

Receptionist in Rosebery:
"Office Environment."
Pros: What I mostly like about my job is that everyone is friendly and easy to get along with.
Cons: What I least like about my job is my pay rate.
