Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  Blacktown NSW6 February 2017
As an admin assistance I was at a desk all day which wasn't my type of career at this point in my life. As I was covering the position for someone on long service leave it was easy to complete the two months without too much stress. I was thankful for the opportunity and experience which helped me clarify what I was seeking regarding employment and a career.
Pros
Approachable Manager
Cons
Brain numbing work

Events Officer (Former Employee) –  Sydney24 April 2016
A typical day at work is busy and an 8 hours work allocated is not enough. I have learned so much at work including; how to deal with difficult customer, marketing strategy, time management and etc. Most of co-workers are team player, senior staff refuse to play their role during busy time. Hardest part of my job is the long hours work and not enough staff provided by the management so I have to carry on and do and responsibilities to deliver on what is expected from me. The most enjoyable part of my job is everything. I love events and like to be challenge.
Pros
good salary, flexible working hours
Cons
not enough staff to give assistace within our units
