    I worked at Harrison & Shriftman full-time

    Pros

    Worked in the LA office directly under the Principal for over a year. Normal tasks included scheduling and follow up, and a lot of writing... Blogs, pitches, social media, decks, etc. Though she is very tough, she is actually a very considerate boss. She encouraged my creative input when it came to writing, event production and pretty much anything else. She apologized when she (rarely) sprung last-minute requests on me, and she fully understood (and encouraged) I had a life beyond my job.

    This was a very valuable experience. She is very insistent that her assistant learn something and if you do a good job on her desk, you WILL be promoted.

    Also 2 weeks vacation over the holidays and rotating summer Fridays (but you rarely get them off when you are an EA).

    Cons

    Long hours at times. Pay is not great. Very diirty office with no parking (which has since relocated); and at the time there was a lot of drama between employees who are no longer there. Director was unfriendly.

    Advice to Management

    Try to cultivate a friendlier work environment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrison & Shriftman (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    I was asked typical interview questions (tell me about yourself, strengths and weaknesses, achievements, etc.) Preparing for these questions beforehand was very helpful. There were no curveball questions. I was interviewed by two people who were engaging, and it was an overall good experience.
