A very welcoming workplace that is eager to help you grow!
Administrative Assistant / Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 July 2013
I could not have asked for a better company to work for! Absolutely every employee and management alike were very personable and all worked for a common goal. We were all treated as equals and were very well compensated for our hard work.
Morrison Hershfield is a company that is eager to help you grow to your full potential. There was continuous training, and lots of room for advancements.
My typical day would include, but is not limited to checking and replying to emails, ordering supplies and speaking with venders, covering reception duties, shipping and receiving, and making travel arrangements for employees and senior executive members.
My main role was preparing for RFP's (Request for Proposal), and bid documents. I proofread and formatted all documents leaving the departments.
The hardest part of the job for me was saying "NO". I very rarely ever told a colleague that I couldn't help them get their project completed in time even on such short notice. I always managed to find a way to shuffle my work priorities to make sure no deadlines were ever missed.
I really enjoyed how busy I was! No matter what, there was something I could find to do, and there was always another department I could help!
Excellent compesation and flexibility!
