Sales Administrator Reviews

What is it like working as a Sales Administrator?

Sales Administrator in San Diego:
Pros: I am not micromanaged and I am left alone to complete tasks assigned to me in any way I chose to complete them. I don't have to check in with my boss every hour of the day as I CC him on all my work completed and he can check what I've done at anytime.
Cons: I cannot learn every aspect of my position due to job security. There are some aspects I would like to learn but my superior will not teach me as she thinks it would be too difficult for me to learn. I cannot continue to grow if I'm not given the opportunity to.

Sales Administrator in Lake Success:
Pros: I enjoy being busy and receiving praise for good work, I enjoy getting my work done efficiently. Management is very nice.
Cons: The hours and the long commute.
