Plus we (all the marketing assistants) have quotas. And my quota is not affected by the fact that I also perform other job functions. I also help coordinate translators and interpreters for assignment (the part of my job I love) which can take up a lot of time. But at the end of the day I'm still supposed to have made my 25 calls and my 10 mailouts etc. Not to mention the research needed for each of those calls.
Oh, and I have no job security. Every two weeks we have a meeting in which they informa us that if we don't produce soon, some or all of us will be let go. Nice, huh?
I'll rant about my other job later (I work evenings and weekends hosting/serving at a restaurant.)
