A typical day would be to set up the catering for meetings throughout the day. Then, I would have to go replace the secretary during her break and lunch. If there was no catering to do during the day, I would organize the filing cabinet. I learned to be ultra organized and how to create a cocktail event within budget.. Management was very helpful and always there when I needed help. My co-workers were great. Always there to assist me. They were all hilarious. Hardest part of the job was waking up at 4am in the morning. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing my co-workers and seeing how I was assisting them.
Administrative Assistant/Office Services (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 9 April 2018
Honest communication: Heard a lot of complaints and gossip among peers, but nobody even dares to speak the truth because they're afraid of offending the superiors. The employee always sweet-talks / give feedback to superior with what superior would like to hear, which is totally not the facts. A lot of issues are swept under the carpet, everybody is avoiding honest communication just to survive their job and most of them think is useless as the management will not care.
