Administrative Secretary Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Administrative Secretary?

Administrative Secretary in Montgomery:
Pros: Interacting with people.
Cons: I have a lot of duties and for what I get paid every two weeks don't equal out.

Administrative Secretary in San Diego:
"Working As An Administrative Assistant."
Pros: I like interacting with customers and helping others. I like working in a fast paced environment, although I like working in an office, I like that I also get to go outside and enjoy working outside.
Cons: This job makes you feel important, although it's extremely stressful! You are constantly busy and needed in every direction. Sometimes the help I give coworkers isn't appreciated by them or my manager. I feel as if I'm underpaid and my manager takes advantage of it by giving me more responsibilities.

Administrative Secretary in Salinas:
Pros: Great leadership from the top trickles down to all subordinates.
Cons: Too many things to juggle all at once.

Administrative Secretary in Essex:
Pros: I like the fact that my boss isn't always standing over my shoulder and lets me manage my own time.
Cons: I get asked to do a lot and do not get a lot of respect. When the accountant or bookkeeper come in they use my computer so I get booted from my desk. I get asked to do a lot of meaningless tasks like making copies and filing. I know that my boss doesn't think my job is very important and has said that the previous people in my position were over paid. I have been there for almost four years and don't make the salary the previous employees in my position were paid. I work with all men.
