Basically worked alone without direct supervision,challenging yet rewarding in many ways.
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – 3 November 2015
Rainbow Foods LLC opened it's doors in 2004 for a community that was in need of a grocery store by private owners.
There were many challenges, but none that couldn't be overcome with the experience of our team and owners who had been in the grocery business for 30 plus years.
For me personally, a typical day was having the ability to shift gears and re priortize given an unforeseen issue that may arise, either in HR or AP. The postition I was originally hired for, Price Coordinator quickly turned into Office manager. I am proud to admit, this sudden promotion was a self taught position. It was certainly a challenge, however it allowed me to learn a wide range of responsibilites from the legal aspects of running a business, Insurance including health, workers comp and liability, accounts payable using QuickBooks, among many other aspects of the job title.
I was fortunate to work along with co workers from many different backgrounds, which enabled me to learn better communication skills.
It was rewarding for me being over HR and developing a genuine repoire within healthy boundaries.
I would consider year end requirements the toughfest. The daily responsibilities had to continue, but that's when you just do what you have to and put in the hours needed to complete the task.
Benefits, health insurance, mileage reimbursement, paid vacation, Christmas bonus & a cruise.
No window in my office.
