Office Manager, Medical Office Reviews

What is it like working as an Office Manager, Medical Office?

Office Manager, Medical Office in Chesapeake:
"Self Worth."
Pros: The owner is very respectful, professional, goofy and flexible. He's very "nice" and will help you if you ask. The trust he has given me has made me even more humble then before I started this job and he keeps me in check and on my toes. I have learned so much since I started this job and continue to learn more everyday.
Cons: The downfall to this job is the hours, which I have no problem with, however, due to the amount of hours I work and when you break that down to an hourly pay - I usually get paid right at or below minimum wage. What upsets me is that if the other employees got paid full time, they all would be making a lot more than me and based on what I do for work, how much I work and always being on call basis, I feel that I'm getting under paid severely. I hate to sound greedy, but money makes the world go round unfortunately and I have a son to raise and my 73 year old grandparent's are helping me. If not for them, I wouldn't be able to raise my son. Time is not guaranteed and at any point they could go... I would be royally screwed if that happened. I'm finally growing up, trying to start a career so that I can be independent from anyone. I just need help financially and I feel that I'm working and growing constantly to ask for a raise. Doc not being around to see the BS I deal with.
