Office Administrator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Office Administrator?

Office Administrator in Aberdeen:
"Low Pay."
Pros: I like having a lot to do most of the time but once everything has been done I never get given anything else to do so sometimes it can be boring.
Cons: VERY LOW PAY! Nothing to do most the time.

Office Administrator in Coleshill:
"Busy Office Environment."
Pros: The busy office environment keeps me engaged and busy day to day with challenges of all kinds whether it be customers, staff or new systems as we develop and grow as a company.
Cons: Work loads can seem daunting to a new recruit at first but after the settling in period it becomes manageable.

Office Administrator in London:
Pros: People, tasks to do are interesting, understanding employer.
Cons: No potential to learn, salary too low, working hours exceed 50 per week.

Office Administrator in Bexley:
Pros: It fits in around my current circumstances and is flexible enough for me.
Cons: The pay is not good and I feel under appreciated.

Office Administrator in Brighton:
"Rewarding Work."
Pros: Helping society/community. The people I work with. Solving problems. Organizing lots of data/schedules. My cycle ride to work. Flexibility - I can alter my part time hours if convenient. Low stress levels. I don't have to take work home with me or work outside office hours.
Cons: Unsatisfactory level of communication between departments. Lack of willingness from other teams to go beyond their responsibilities. Red tape. Not as challenging as I would like - would enjoy a bit more responsibility.

Office Administrator in London:
"American Apparel."
Pros: With the management being based in Canada, it's very much an independent role. I often have to make quick decisions for which I have never been formally trained. I have had to learn a lot of corporate software skills via the phone and email, as well as being responsible for sending money to customers and dealing with complaints.
Cons: I work in a windowless office under the ground, in an American Apparel store in Shoreditch. I regularly have to clean the small room myself (it's about 4x4 meters), and my previous colleague was incompetent and lazy, yet favored by my manager and paid more than me. Since his leaving I have now had to take over the whole online department, doing everything from opening the post to taking out the rubbish and everything in between. I have to physically carry large, heavy postbags half a mile up the road each day, because a Royal Mail delivery service was too expensive to set up. This means that sometimes I need to ask for help from the employees of the store. I regularly feel undervalued and overworked. Though I have been here for over a year (I started by just doing the post and have never been officially promoted), I am still on £6.50 p/h. This is not enough to live on and I often work 9-10 hours days just to make my rent. I was also promised a raise which was never given.

Office Administrator in Grantham:
Pros: Being challenged, loads of different aspects of work ranging from accounting to sales admin
Cons: Not getting the appreciation for all the work I do
