Office Administrator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Office Administrator?

Office Administrator in Eugene:
"Fire Life."
Pros: During the summer months I work as a dispatcher for our wild land firefighting program. This is challenging, interesting, and exciting. I am able to bring my dog with me to work, and so far in his life we have not been separated. The office atmosphere is close, which can be good for morale.
Cons: Tension runs high in this office, and people usually create and spread rumors. The bosses do nothing to quell the panic of their employers and even seek to punish people who have been the victims of rumors. The bosses are aggressive and rarely around; they are prone to yelling, cursing and occasionally calling their employees names.

Office Administrator in Edmonton:
"Employer bennefits and market salary."
Research your salary options.

Office Administrator in Nashville:
"Stand Up For Yourself."
If you are easily intimidated, this is not the job for you. You must take charge and be able to address workers with details. Be able to teach the proper procedures and consequences.

Office Administrator in Chicago:
"I Provide Administrative Support To An International Charity."
Pros: Freedom to adjust methods, interpersonal management.
Cons: Could be better communication, management could train/educate more effectively.

Office Administrator in Honolulu:
"Mixed Review."
Pros: Mostly great people and culture as a whole. Company has a great philosophy.
Cons: Training is mostly on the job. A person must come with innate ability to organize themselves. The work environment is as a whole determined by the Financial Adviser. Each office has only one Financial Adviser and one Branch Office Administrator. If the Financial Adviser is a good leader, the office tends to have a good vibe. If the Financial Adviser is immature, inexperienced, etc., the office suffers no matter how good the assistant is. Compensation is low compared to the amount of work both Financial Adviser and Administrative Assistant must accomplish.

Office Administrator in Santa Clara:
"Be proactive."
Try to anticipate manager's needs.

Office Administrator in Charlotte:
"Good Work Environment, Good Work Ethics And Consistency."
