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 ?

I've been working as a paralegal/legal assistant for the past 6 years. I want to work as a personell/administration/executive assistant, etc. I have the skills needed to change environments, but how can I change my resume from JUST being a legal assistant to show that I have the experience, skills and qualifications needed to work as a personell assistant??
Do they hire admins to be servants so they can bully them round and feel good about themselves by talking down to and treating admins like lowly servants. Assuming they're unintelligent and stupid to feed big about themselves ?
Is that all part of the admin job description ? I thnk that it is .
I work retail part time. I am a 21 year old college student, so there isn't much else I can do while trying to earn my degree in Business Administration. My assistant manager is condescending to me at times, and I really don't understand why. As an example, today my assistant manager wanted me to take the items from the "U-Boat," a wheeled device for transportation of merchandise, for those who do not know, and put them on the shelf where they belong. No big deal. Standard procedure. My assistant manager then said " What you should do is put the empty boxes to the side, and then put the empty boxes on the U-boat when everything is all gone, okay?" Now, this is not only self explanatory, but something I have been doing for the last few months I have been working there. I always feel so degraded and put down, talked down to and I really do not understand it. I am a reasonably intelligent human being, and no one else treats me this way. The head store manager is always good to me and frequently gives me complements on the way I talk to customers and how quickly and efficiently I get tasks done. He treats me as an equal, not a little kid.
I'm not sure how to talk to this person, especially since I'm not sure if I am overreacting. I've tried to drop subtile hints that I am not some sort of basket case, but its obviously not working. Its getting annoying. What should I do, if anything at all? Sure, sometimes I will ask my assistant manager questions and ask for permission to do certain things, but only because I do not want to mess up and compromise the merchandise inventory or make a bad presentation. I'm not sure if that makes me sound unintelligent to her to ask so many questions, but its only because I want to get the job done right. Thank you!
I've seen this vacancy for a retail store, but all it says is it's a selling support role responsible for providing a comprehensive administrative support service to the store in the areas of HR and Store administration, so doesn't say what it would involve exactly. Does anyone know what the duties might include for this kind of job?
If you are or thought about working in the office administration field: What do you think it personally takes to start or be in this field? What advice would you give?
