Old school type of department. I was in the financial end. No email at my desk, no music to lighten the day. You are given your work every day, not allowed to be proactive in your duties, follow the guidelines of the office manager whether it wasn't right in your opinion. Your opinion doesn't count. Just key the information in the system and keep your mouth shut. Get all the cheques, eft's or payables done in a timely matter every day, nothing is held over to the next day. Keep your desk clean of paperwork.
when you were busy the day flew by
when it was slow it dragged
