This highly political / confidential position was as much rewarding as it was eye opening.... I learned so very much in a very short amount of time...
Legal Secretary/Word Processor (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 23, 2015
A typical day at the bureau was not typical according to my standards.... running vin numbers on license plates for agents in the field, over the radio, taking live calls from paid informants, typing checks made payable to these "confidential" informants, was all very non-typical for me.... perhaps exciting, not dull, and I learned the combination to the vault where the drugs and money and guns were kept in a huge vault for future raids? That is what I was told.....
The co-workers, they were threatened by my eagerness to learn and be cross-trained and to work in more than one capacity at a time. However the most enjoyable part of the job was probably resigning after being promoted to a much higher level of professional calling.The hardest part of the job I have saved until last, on purpose, it was seeing what the tax payers agree to spend their tax dollars on......withoiut being properly informed as to how they were truly being spent and not being able to do anything at all about it except save myself by accepting an awesome promotion and leave it far behind me and try not looking back.

Service Delivery Officer (Current Employee), Hobart, TASNovember 30, 2014
Pros: working with dedicated colleagues
Cons: require further challenges
My day can vary from moment to moment, you maybe organising a service for a client, then required to organise coverage for a user travelling overseas on the same day.

Communication is a key part of my role being able to communicate effectively and prioritise your day also work independently.

My co-workers have similar views, and are dedicated to providing quick and efficient services and information.

Enjoyable part of the job knowing you have completed tasks and the users are appreciative of the work involved.

Developer Booz Allen Hamilton (Current Employee), Washington DCNovember 21, 2014
I like it. People are very nice and the work is challenging. I encourage everyone to work here for some job. This site requires me to enter forty words in order to pass some validation test. My office space is pretty bad and I don't have any privacy even to make a phone call. The client is very nice and has come to understand how a software project is run.

Administration Clerk (Current Employee), Bethlehem, FSNovember 20, 2014
Daily consultations with clients regarding the administration deceased estates, liquidation & distribution account (Insolvency), small claims court and domestic violence. What the job taught me well was to be open, sensitive and respectful to people from all walks of life as those coming to me have different difficulties in their lives where I have to attentively listen to them in order to try find resolutions to their challenges. Though I work unsupervised, I have a great team of supportive colleagues around me when the going gets tough. The hardest part about my job is sitting down with any person who would really need assistance and not being able to provide any remedy or relief to them. What I enjoy most is interacting with people and giving them hope of a better future when some have lost all hope.

Unproductive and no growth
Administration Clerk (Current Employee), Atteridgeville, GPNovember 7, 2014
- to do my daily duties with enthusiasm without any hassle
- teamwork is important as much as working independantly
- if find it very imparative to use channel of communication so that every employee and employer can supply knowledge and skills appropriately,
- it is important to use interpersonal skills when working with co-workers and to listen to their inputs so that we may have strong organisational culture and win their hearts so that they will perform very well.
- to work had in providing service delivery and not to get a simple "thank for your hard work"
- to have job description and to meet deadlines.
