Personal Assistant Reviews

What is it like working as a Personal Assistant?
Personal Assistant in Johannesburg:
"Experience Gained."
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.
