Receptionist in Houston:
Pros: My coworkers are rooting for me. I enjoy receiving a lot of responsibility and the opportunity to lead projects in our company. Although I am a receptionist, I have the opportunity to learn a lot more about the title and escrow business. They have also let me lead the integration project between our different software. This has made me even more valuable to the company. I enjoy using my degree to bring in new and consistent clients to our company.
Cons: I am not paid enough at my job. The receptionist duties only take up about 5% of my time during work. I spend more of my time on database management and spreadsheets for other people within the company. I am at the bottom of the totem pole. I do not like dealing with coffee management and getting people drinks, and it is not something that I want to do for the rest of my life.
