Great entry level position for scientists, horrible for accounting/clerical
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Emeryville,CA – 15 August 2012
A typical day would be sitting in my supervisors office adding numbers on a calculator that he spewed out or drawing lines under names for people who needed DOA training. Meanwhile in my real job manifests, data entry, reporting, engagement code maintenance, customer service and Chevron reporting would all be backing up at a fast rate.
I did learn alot about waste management coordination and what happens on both sides as well Chevrons place in all of it.
Management in my area was horrible in every facet from trying to present efficient billing structures and code maintenance and being ignored to constant changes in handling these items with no rhyme or reason for change.
Co-Workers, outside of my group, were great people. My work group not at all.
Hardest part of job was my direct supervisor constantly ruining what works by constantly throwing out changes that never had enough of a chance to work before changing everything again. Most enjoyable part of my job? Nothing.
