Administration Assistant in Brisbane:
"That I Had Time To Negotiate My Pay And Contract."
Our work is very disorganized and you basically need to teach yourself how to use all of the databases and how to do the job. Nobody seems to know what they're doing and if they know what they're doing, they won't share any advice. You're on your own. You'll get paid badly to do it and you will work too hard while other people do nothing and earn a lot more money than you.

"Admin."
Pick your employer. Don't be bullied. Don't be harassed. Stand up for what you believe to be right. Don't let others take the reward for your efforts.
