The company is very traditional and does not always welcome fresh thought and ideas and does not like to be challenged by those in less senior roles.
Receptionist/administrator (Current Employee) – Horsham, West Sussex – 3 May 2016
My day normally involves being one of the first on site. I set up the reception area and make sure everything is ready and on hand eg sufficient visitors passes, provisions like tea and coffee supplies.
I am the first port of call for visitors and deliveries such as Royal Mail and couriers. I assist people arriving for meetings advising which rooms are booked and managing a very busy switchboard, directing calls to appropriate staff and dealing with more complex inquiries needing to know about other divisions, products and services.
I liaise with suppliers in terms of stationary ordering and buffet and daily staff lunch orders.
I enjoy the variety and the challenges of being kept busy.
free parking, lunch subsidy, most people are friendly and helpful.
a lack of understanding and appreciation from management for the work we do.
