It's at a no-kill animal shelter. The ad just says - ft/pt admin. asst. in busy front office Any body have any ideas as to what exactly they might want? I called today, and of course, I couldn't get any info over the phone-they just said to fax my resume. Also wondering what kind of pay scale to expect, if anybody out there might have a similar job or know someone who does? I'm guessing that it probably won't be much, but...it sure would be a nice change.
I was an admin. assistant before I had my kids. Mainly I did mail, phones, appointments, etc. for the CEO of the company. I would think in this situation that you would be like a receptionist that assists the shelter director. My pay rate was 9.88 an hour...but that was in 1999-2000. Pay really depends on the state you live in.
generally no kill shelters are funded thru private donations, adoptions fees, etc. i wouldn't expect more then 10 dollars an hour for the position. i would expect less then that. as far as the duties go i would imagine it would be paperwork having to do with the animals , phone calls etc. but i am not sure. just keep in mind that no - kill shelters are not 100 % no kill. they do euthanize some animals just not alot like pounds and such.
So are you thinking the job probably won't require a lot of computer experience? I've taken courses in Word and Excel, but I use them so rarely, I forget 3/4 of what I learned! Now I just need to come up with a cover letter...
