Too many jobscope

Postby Oppsgal » Sat Sep 17, 2011 10:45 am

Came across lots of jobs that have plenty of jobscope. If hire for admin clerk, might include jobscopes covering admin work, human resource job, accounts and secretary.

Will you take up such a job?

quite common for small office to bundle up multiple roles upon 1 person.

How big is the company?

Secretary to how many "bosses" ?

But the role is not only about secretary role.

The role is like "rojak"? do Hr payroll, do accounts calculation, do minutes, do receptionist?

Something like "maid"- be a cook, be a cleaner, be a nanny, be a teacher, all on the same day?

:lol:

I think it depends on the person. If you are someone who likes variety, doesnt mind the "rojak" then the person finds it interesting.

There are people who feel they prefer to specialise in one or two areas too.

The other thing is also career path. Do you want to climb the ladder? If you are, then "rojak" is a little difficult to climb (my opinion)

if told about the various duties during interview and the salary is justified, then maybe.

but if not told about it and found out much later, and salary is not justified, then might have to reconsider. but also depends on how the pp are in the office including the boss......

i don't mind the job scope so long the salary is reasonable, i need the money and the working environment is ok (not hostile, political etc) and no OT.
i don't mind doing whatever work that is outside my scope of work (I used to be 'loaned' to other teams for adhoc jobs, doing other job scope as 'career enrichment' etc) so long i get to go home on time.

Don't mind as long as it doesn't mean OT hours. I did that in my last co and enjoyed the experiences. In fact that helped me move on to other roles, figured the exposure meant I had exposure to join other teams.

:rotflmao: Your wish? Most only give 1 person pay but wants you do rojak jobs.

So if required to do OT hours, what will you do? Quit immediately?

Actually if OT is a big concern, one can always check out during the interview. Ask the interviewer if OT is a requirement for this role. Sometimes rojak job does not mean have to do OT. I worked in a couple of companies, so far, not much OT especially for admin girl. They can go back on time
