Office Administrator in Green Bay:
"Great Working Environment."
Pros: We are a locally owned company with only 12 full time employees. We do hire a lot of temps also. I like working in an atmosphere where everyone knows each other well, we are not treated like numbers. I like being the office administrator because I help out all the production managers, and the owner. I know everything that is going on with our customers, and I make sure they are happy with the work we are providing.
Cons: The owner of this company is new and there have been many changes from the corporate level that has been challenging. When things are not getting done correctly, my boss is passive on handing consequences.

Office Administrator in Eugene:
"Fire Life."
Pros: During the summer months I work as a dispatcher for our wild land firefighting program. This is challenging, interesting, and exciting. I am able to bring my dog with me to work, and so far in his life we have not been separated. The office atmosphere is close, which can be good for morale.
Cons: Tension runs high in this office, and people usually create and spread rumors. The bosses do nothing to quell the panic of their employers and even seek to punish people who have been the victims of rumors. The bosses are aggressive and rarely around; they are prone to yelling, cursing and occasionally calling their employees names.
