Project Assistant Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Project Assistant?

Project Assistant in Fountain Valley:
"Great Challenge, Under Paid."
Pros: The challenge. How every day I'm put into a new situation and I have to figure out how to do it. It's moderately easy, it just takes time and a way to figure out how to do it.
Cons: It's dealing with large amounts of money. So I'm responsible for making really important decisions, that could cost the company a very large amount of money, so I have to be careful and detail oriented. The pay does not reflect this responsibility. The constant stress of having to be working. Never a moment you can relax.
