We have a few highly qualified men who are interviewing for open admin assistant jobs at our company. Currently all the people doing administrative work at our company are women but I would like to add some diversity to the mix. Others say no, they want to hire only women because they say being a Secretary is for females.
The men actually have higher scores on the typing and Microsoft Office test. I think that scores are not everything though, maybe fit is more important. So should we just keep hiring very young women so they fit? Your thoughts.
Okay. I work in a fairly basic, public-sector job as an administrative assistant making 13.50/hr+benefits before taxes (my take home is about 1,400$/month). I have a possible job opportunity coming up where I might be able to move into the private sector as a direct assistant to an insurance agent to handle his office while he is out.
There has been no wage discussed by either of us - but I would not switch unless there was a definite improvement in wage, because besides anything else my work commute doubles from 20 miles round-trip to 40 miles round trip. I am hoping (I did not state this to the possible employer) for about $15/hr (if benefits, great, if not... I have avoided thinking about for now), simply to both provide improved quality-of-life-spending money, as well as to be able to afford the extra gas.
A very good friend of mine feels that I am expecting way way too high of a wage here, and that I should not be so concerned with the 20 extra miles in commute because "it's not that far," which has me worried. Based on my research, a lot of admin assistant jobs are either 12$/hr (and that's rare) or they are between $15-$18 for a position depending on the level of experience held by the employee.
What is the average wage to expect for an Administrative Assistant (with or without an Associates degree), and is my hope for $15 too high?
I've worked are admin assistant for 3 months now. I want to know what should i do to progress further for my career development in this line of job?i'm actually an IT graduate but having sales admin assistant for a job.I want to have a brighter future in this job but i don't know what should i expect besides doing administrative work that i'm doing right now.
Just while I wait in the waiting area, of course I won't continue during the interview. I hate sitting anywhere with nothing to do and Knitting relaxes me so I would be in a calm state of mind. It is for an Admin Assistant job.
I am interested in finding out general information about the petroleum industry. I am not quite ready for the technical issues involved with it. I am current a candiate for a admin assistant job at one of the petroleum companies and I need to research and study about general petroleum facts so I am not so out of the loop when I go for my second interview. Any help out there?
I have been replying to ads on Craigslist for a few weeks now and got two replies back from the same person. One of the jobs is for a mystery shopper (I have no idea why they would email me because I've only been replying to Admin Assistant jobs) and another one, she didn't make it too clear what the position was. The email about the vague position asks for me to click on a website and submit a credit score to them and if I don't, I will not be hired. She's telling me she would like to interview me on Thursday and show me around the office and show me what my tasks would be. I do not want to pass this up if this is not a fraud because I need money for my child thats due in June. I'm 18 and do not have any credit whatsoever but its identity theft I'm afraid of. As for the other job, she didn't ask for a credit score and said I'd get paid $16/hr being a mystery shopper and to go to a certain website to apply. I have no idea if I should reply to the vague email or not. Does it seem legit? I desperately need a new job. I had one but the manager threatened to shoot me and kill my baby so I quit and its been a month since I've worked last. I worked there for 7 months.
On the website the job title is stated as admin assistant. But when I downloaded the additional documents containing more information about that job, the title was changed to ward clerk. Is it still worth applying for?
I'm going to an assessment day at Arcadia ( the company that owns topshop, miss selfridge etc) for an Admin assistant job role, i would appreciate any advice you could give me on what to expect and questions they may ask. I am also confused on what to wear? Any help would be much appreciated!
I have also been told there is a maths text involved? I'm not sure if this is true but if it is please could anybody supply me with questions they may ask. Thanks
I am 40 years old and have worked as an admin assistant, secretary, sales coordinator and order processor using SAP. I know Sydney always has more jobs available but since I have friends and extended family in BRisbane, I would prefer going there. However, how much more difficult would it be for someone like me to find employment in Brisbane as compared to Sydney? Thanks
Especially if you have the education but not work experience, can admin type of jobs be a foot in the door or are they just dead end ?
I don't necessarily mean admin assistant specifically but many jobs that would be considered support functions.
Can you use the jobs as an entry level position to better things or are they usually a brand that will keep you stuck in the job ?
Is the work degrading, could it be compared to working in retail in regards to how badly you are treated by superiors ?
Secretary/Admin Assistant/PA - whatever the job title is!
Monthly or annual salary - I just need a general idea really of what I could earn doing this kind of work. Thanks
My job title is Admin Assistant but my job is not general in anyway, it is quite specific and important. My colleagues are admin officers and are on more money, but also have specific jobs. I feel like I am being taken for granted!!!
My job is in no way general, it is quite specific, and I do not assist anyone. I am in sole control of my job.Obviously I have a line manager. I started off assisting someone in the job i do now. But they retired and I took over the role by myself.
Is Admin job is a good job , how much scope and respect has in it ???
Difference with admin assistant and administrative assistant? job description and duties.. Thanks
I've been a receptionist for 5 going on 6 years for a non-profit then for-profit skilled nursing hospital and the next door assisted living facility.
If I were to get a job as an admin assistant what responsibilities so I expect to pick up that's different than the receptionist responsibilities?
Consider a primary/elementary school on the summer vacation and as such all the pupils stay home, what duties do the office assistants and admin assistants perform during these periods. Will there be a substantial difference in their work schedule?
I want to have a administrative assistant job..
Currently at my community college they have administrative assistant classes.. But what should I choose if I want a bachelor degree because I know they don't have a bachelor degree in admin assistant.
I find alot of admin. assistant/receptionist jobs that require 1-2 years experience operating a multi-line switchboard but A)I have never operated one and B)practically EVERY one of these switchboard jobs wants 2 yrs experience, NONE want to train someone on it. It's like there's no place to start.
Is it something that can be picked up on easily?
If a person whose job title is admin assistant and the manager insists that he actually provides front line childcare (actual contact with children) (UK Law) isn't this a breach of employment laws?
I'm 29 years old, and I have virtually been an executive/admin assistant my entire career life. I graduate from grad school in May 2009. I have no previous supervisory experience. What's the best way to show jobs that I'm ready to take on more responsibility? What key words should I include on my resume and cover letter?
