Job Share/Part-time Expectations

The standard hours of work would be noon-5pm each day; however, this position requires a flexible schedule and the potential of extended work hours to support business demands. The Administrative Assistant position consists of two part-time employees "job-sharing" in order to provide coverage to the Lobby between the hours of 7:30a and 5pm, Monday - Friday. Time off considerations will be based on your job-share partner to be able to cover a day off that you request and approved by your manager.

"Job sharing" is an alternative work arrangement whereby the duties and responsibilities of a full-time position are shared by two part-time employees. Each employee may be responsible for the whole job and all of its tasks, or alternatively, some projects or tasks may be assigned independently. By definition, for a job to be shared, both employees are accountable for the majority of its responsibilities, and must interact in order to accomplish them.
