21+ year olds: have you ever had your own secretary / administrative assistant?
I AM the secretary!
Shared 2 admin among 50 people. I don't have one now and really miss it
Yes, she is out there just emailing away right now.
I have a teacher's aide. Does that count?
One of my job responsibilities!
Oops wrong poll!
..although I do share secretaries with the business owner I work with. We're like friends, practically.
She actually was the admin. Asst. for the whole group ( five people)
I had a great one for 6 years that was downright amazing managing me!
Tempting as this sounds, I've heard it's illegal to own people.
"It's not illegal. It's frowned upon...like masturbating on an airplane"
I must've missed that memo.
Doing evaluations suck!
No I have not
I have lots of assistants, technicians. No secretaries
I need one.
I had an assistant in college, it was wonderful :)
I've never had the kind of job where an administrative assistant would be much use. I have had and been an assistant on position, handling computer and paperwork entries and landline calls, but that's more like being a copilot than a secretary.
Yes and realistically she is the glue in our office. Very professional I couldn't do what I do without her. I get her coffee, yep she's that important here!
I hear you.
Yes. I had one before I became a stay at home dad. Some days I wish I still had one. It's very easy to get used to not having to file my own paperwork or get my own lunch.
Does an intern count?
Does a co-pilot count?
We have one for the department.
No. Ours is the secretary for the department. All five of us....
I will have my secretary get back to you on this.
No but my boss has one and we are a few people allowed to ask her for assistance. It's great to have someone to ask for help arranging meetings etc. It's such an overlooked and undervalued function.
That's exactly what i tell my employees.
No, but I've been the secretary.
See the other question.
It hadn't been posted yet.
OK you're lightning fast :-)
I'm waiting for pictures of my niece born an hour ago, so I'm wearing out all my apps. Really hoping I get one before work, her description sounds like my youngest :)
Oh how great to hear. Congratulations.
