What is it like working as a Personal Assistant?
Personal Assistant in Pretoria:
Pros: The first good thing is I have a job, even though I do not enjoy it at all.
The colleagues I have acquainted myself with are good people.
Cons: My boss is a moody person.
Credit is not granted based on the performance but it is rather granted based on favouritism. The good hard-working people are under appreciated and yet the ones who spend most of their time doing nothing get away with it. I can handle the pressure and I used to be more to willing to work the extra hours without overtime compensation until I realised that the efforts are under appreciated if at all. There is not room for development as promised. The more I do, the more is demanded without any sign of appreciation.

Pros: My job may not come with many perks but working here, I have met so many good people passionate about their career paths that have taught me so much. I keep learning new things everyday and right now the experience for me is great.
Cons: The management, I feel like I'm in a concentration camp most of the time, we are always being watched and we are not allowed to take unscheduled tea breaks. There is no freedom, its non-stop work from 07:30 to 17:00.
