Job Description for Temporary Receptionist

Temporary receptionists have many of the same duties as receptionists in permanent positions; however, temporary receptionists are simply filling in for receptionists until they can return. Depending on the employer, temporary receptionists must learn about the various rules and regulations at particular facilities and are generally responsible for answering customers' questions and occasionally resolving concerns for dissatisfied customers, as well as answering phones, filing documents, and working on a computer for the majority of the shift. Temporary receptionists are also occasionally tasked with sifting through applications of potential employees and referring them to the human resources department or management.
