What is it like working as an Administrative Assistant?
Administrative Assistant in Eastman:
Pros: I like the flexibility the most. I am able to work without the confines of a deadline when I first start on a project.
Cons: My boss waits until the last minute to approve projects/ads. He adds to my stress level. There are no benefits at all. Not even vacation or paid time off. No insurance or holiday pay. No raises unless you beg and sometimes not then.

Pros: Variety, jack of all trades, using technology, working with lots of different people, learning a lot of new skills and tricks, being able to leave work at work, feel like my job helps people.

Administrative Assistant in El Reno:
"Office Conditions, Stress And Rewards."
Pros: Help other to teach others to save lives through nursing and emergency medical. We are shaping them to be heroes. Even though I am only the administrative assistant I still feel somewhat part of each of our students lives. Its a rewarding job.
Cons: The fact that you have to go through so many channels to get anything done. Considering this is a government institution we have several departments each having their on piece of the pie. Each piece does not work together too well. In other wards it s unorganized.
