Office Administrator Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Office Administrator in Woodstock:
High stress work environment, particularly in spring and fall. Must be able to multi task efficiently and be extremely organized and detail oriented.

Office Administrator in Bonanza:
Ensure you know where you stand with management and the back-up you will have when making decisions.

Office Administrator in Kitchener:
"How Much Fun It Was Going To Be To Work Here."
Its all about time management. Take your time and do work accurately the first time. Ask Questions! If you don't understand ask questions. Get all the information needed before starting the project. Be friendly and assertive.

Office Administrator in Calgary:
"I Wish I'd Had More Knowledge About Oil And Gas Drilling."
Be highly organized as consultants generally rely on that heavily.

Office Administrator in Richmond Hill:
"Don't Get Exploited, Get What Your Worth."
Do not take on any extra or demanding duties not advertised in job offer. No compensation or advancement is available. This company does not have sick days, bereavement, and has forced shut down 1 week in July and 1 week in Dec. Therefore, you do not choose your own vacation time. If you do not have some mandarin, good luck working and communicating with your key staff in repair and electrical dept. No annual reviews or raises, I put alot of the labor of ministry's guidelines into place, and set up some kind of organization with customer rma, manuals, handbooks, reviews, health & safety, customer service, shipping & receiving. But to no avail, no recognition or raises, they provide increases in pay yearly, regardless of the job you do, it's flat rate across the board for all employees. A good thing is friendly and casual atmosphere. Good Luck but be careful not to get exploited.
