1  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Interviews on: September 25, 2015, 04:35:17 am
How do people find time to interview when your time is micro managed?  I but can't find time to interview.  I have had to pass on two that I managed to schedule at lunch people I had to run errands.  I feel in a no win situation!
2  General Discussion / Sound Off! / Re: Training on: July 17, 2015, 04:26:15 am
In my company, budgets have hit hard.  Training has been suspended, no one goes to seminars (unless you are high levels).  Sad.
3  General Discussion / Cafe Admin / Go Figure Photo Copying Checks on: July 07, 2015, 04:17:12 am
Our bookkeeper was out today and I had to photocopy the incoming checks, towards the end of the stack the photo copier kept giving me black pages.  I called our copier repair and the guy on the phone asked if I was photo copying checks.  I said yes and he said there was something in the check that makes it go black.  It is a protection so people don't duplicate checks.   I soooo didn't believe him but tried to copy something else and it worked again.  I feel naive!   Go figure!  Just had to share my duh moment!

If you have different departments you can have someone present what their department does.  Besides that, leadership, organization, productivity..

Try a livescribe pen!

I like Claudiamag's answer!  I can but wont complain about compensation, but besides that the job fits my personality and I enjoy it!
7  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Re: Does your job have any perks on: June 24, 2015, 05:37:22 am
My boss really does give me perks.  We have 401k, company team building events where we win prizes, the CEO hands out personal perks that he has come across at times.  I wish we had some of the bonues others have listed, but... what can I say, we are ok.
8  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / MIA - work and injuries on: June 24, 2015, 05:35:22 am
I have been missing in action for a bit!  I hurt my neck and have to work through the pain!  It is a long term injury, well a couple weeks it should be better.  Of course my boss expects my outcome and quality of work to be up to par, but it is so hard!  (there will have to be a blog entry about this once done and feeling better)

Anyone have to work through pain where your company is as compassionate .. as they should be.  I don't have any complaints, I could take a day off (and will) here and there.

I do not keep my mouse in a good spot.  It slowly moves way to my right.  I really should put it where it needs to be more often. 

At home (like right now) I am TOTALLY bad, my feet don't touch the ground, I could use a better chair, the keyboard can be adjusted to a better height.  Here my mouse is fine, and my monitor is in a good spot.   I tend to sit cross legged like a yoga style because my feet don't touch (desk is too high).
10  General Discussion / Sound Off! / Re: Administrative Professionals are in your company on: March 17, 2015, 06:58:47 am
I have been in companies with 100's (national Bank) to large, but not huge companies with .. my guess 80?  Right now, we have five, and the internet (and DeskDemon) are my support group. (I have one of the 4 other assistants, I conspire with!)
11  General Discussion / Sound Off! / Re: Pets in the Office on: February 20, 2015, 05:24:20 am
It may be the area you live in.  I feel it is getting to be more mainstream.  It may not be in downtown areas though, but the building I work in has about 30 different companies from small offices to mid size of 100 people companies (no more than 100, that is the biggest).   I know at least 6 of those companies have one to two dogs in their offices.  It must be the area because there is a doggy potty bag dispenser. 
12  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Performance Reviews on: February 20, 2015, 04:54:31 am
Has anyone ever had to write their own performance review?  I am not very good at it and having a hard time.  Any advice?
13  General Discussion / Help...Specifically / Re: Typing sound on: February 01, 2015, 11:50:13 pm
My daughter hates the sound of typing.  I had to buy the quietest keyboard, even then she was still annoyed.  This made me think of that! (she is grown up and lives on her own now, I miss the nagging on the keyboard noise)
14  General Discussion / Help...Software Survival / Re: Looking for ideas for a webinar series on: January 08, 2015, 05:12:36 am
How about working and linking two documents or formulas that take working with different documents or at least sheets.   

Different tables and how to work them, pivot, etc.

Those two come to mind for me.

15  General Discussion / Admins 4 Admins / Sick at work, what do you do? on: December 15, 2014, 06:32:26 am
I am sick and have to go into work.  What would you do?  I will keep low, wash my hands a lot and just be miserable.   How do you get threw the day when you know you have a huge work load and just can't feel up to it.  Any suggestions?
