"A Good Job, Not Just A Career."
Office Manager:
Pros: Once you learn the systems it is very easy. It is like working with family, everyone can disagree but. Still come together to get the job done.
Cons: Once you become the best they have ever seen in a position you will be forever stuck there. The owners have failed to keep up with the current market on compensation for employees in all positions.

"Demanding But Rewarding Office Manager Position."
Office Manager:
This job cannot be accomplished by just anyone. Interested candidate must be willing to accept those things he/she cannot change. Must be willing to work under micro-management from immediate supervisor. Flexibility is key. Qualified candidate must be willing to work in any direction at any given time and somehow be able to keep up with the daily expectations of his/her job when being pulled away. Must be able to deal with a myriad of personalities and communicate well, especially with sensitive people. Turnover is great in this line of business, qualified candidate must be willing to work with turnover and train new people on a repetitive basis. In addition to handling payroll, benefits, daily operations, customer service, etc., must be able to also manage quality control. Quality control involves daily auditing of individuals roles and job functions, audits of daily processes. Long hours are required, job will require a minimum of 50 hours per week.
