Pros: i liked the variety of my work, assisting others with projects, and getting to know people and what their jobs were.
Cons: management seemed to make poor decisions which ended in mass layoffs.
I was always early to work. I would check the kitchen supplies and keep them stocked and make sure the fridges were clean. I would check the office supplies to make sure there was enough of everything. I would check expenses to see if there were any that need to be printed, reviewed and approved for payment on the next paycheck. I greeted and directed – more... all visitors. Of course during this time I was answering calls and directing the callers to the correct person. At the appropriate time I would pick up the mail, open it, and distribute. I would send out anything that need to go UPS or FedEx. I would do any projects that were brought to me by other employees and managers in the office. I prepared a weekly Communication PowerPoint presentation that was sent out to all of the US employees to keep everyone informed of birthdays, anniversary's, achievements and upcoming events. The Vice President of HR was my manager and I would do any projects she had for me to do. When new employees started I would add them to my list of employees in Excel and I would make their ID badges. When employees terminated I would adjust the list to reflect that as well. And of course all other duties as assigned i.e. order lunch for meetings. I liked the variety of my work. I liked getting to know all the Americas employees through my position as receptionist. I learned PowerPoint and the Concur expense programs while working at iBAHN and improved my skills in other areas. The hardest part of my job was when I had nothing to do. I had great friends and co-workers at iBAHN. – less
