Be open to different circumstances, don't compare your salary to others since you accepted the salary, take care of your business and let others do their job. Don't spread rumors. Leave your home problems at home if at all possible. Be loyal and dedicated. Be Honest. Give a full days work. If you don't like your job, start looking for someplace you will be happy.

Administrative Specialist in Little Rock:
"My Experience as an Administrative Specialist."
Pros: I love that our agency is making an impact in the lives of the people we ar serving.
Cons: I do not like some aspects of the office culture, the fact that some employees can get away with and do certain things that other employees aren't allowed to do, or would be fired for doing. The pay grade is laughable, in regards to the amount of work I am doing.

Administrative Specialist in Lincoln:
"Work Hard."
You get promoted by working hard. If you think you've worked hard enough, work harder. I have been with my company for over a decade. My supervisor continually comments on my hard work. I put in the time to get the job done and take pride in your work. If you make a mistake, own up to it and fix it. At the same time, make sure you take time to yourself. Work hard, play hard.

"On the job and hands-on training are the most important."
Learn as much as you can by being polite and grateful for the more experienced employees that are nice enough to train you. Respect for others in the workplace has gotten lost and people can be so rude!

"Be Prepared."
Be prepared for changing environments. Learn how to adapt and manage yourself and others. Have the courage to speak up for yourself to prevent "burn-out" and becoming overwhelmed. If offered, take the help from your co-workers. Be kind and understanding. Get used to constantly being needed. Enjoy helping/serving others if you don't there's a long road ahead.
