Dear all

I have recently joined a travel based company as Admin Exec, although I was working as Mgr Admin in my previous company which was business group mainly into Construction, Imports & Software development. I had to leave my previous job due to financial crisis faced by the company.

I'm not really satisfied with working in the present company as I have not been assigned any proper work till now.Its going to be two months now but still I'm passing my time by checking the company mails and doing whatever job which comes to my table. Moreover the company already has 3-4 people in Admin including an Admin Mgr.I'm afraid to express anything to the M.D as I have been referred to him by a friend of his whose known to me, although I have explained the same to him.

Pls advice whether it would be wise for me to quit this job or hang around and observe till the management assigns me work.Also I have applied in various companies but not received any positive results....

I'm really getting desperate and frustrated as the thought of coming to office makes me sick.

2 months is quiet a big time to spend without work. I think you must speak with the concerned. Do not express that you are unhappy just ask them for your role and responsibilities in the organization.
And you yourself must try and get in touch with your seniors and ask for responsibilities.

Dont worry about having not much work in your present job. If the Company has hired you, it definetly has some plans for you. and if it doesnt then you do enjoy your extended induction period. If you really like to have donkey kind of work load then start looking for another job. Sometimes No Work might be a hidden message of your employment not required too. Check around and understand what the others in your Admin Dept are handling and maybe you can take a part of that work on regular basis. The world isnt a perfect place to be, some complain of loads of work and no pay and some complain of no work and all pay. Enjoy your pay till the work follows..................rgds

Dear all
I have tried to express my feelings but they probably are too occupied to understand.They have been trying to give me some indefinite kind of job like preparing some orientation programme etc.
How long can one spent time without doing anything from 9.30 to 5.30pm????
Moreover its really demoralising for me from all means!!!
I'm unable to cope up with the present scenario.

I can understand the situation. The best solution could be to convey it to your manager. As you have already done that so the next solution could be to try finding out that what else you can do to equip yourself with knowledge by engaging yourself in the work which your fellow memebrs are doing or try to find what new you can troduce in the present way of doing work. If still you are not able to get out of the scenario you are explaining then try for other jobs but dont quit the present. Believe in yourself there is always an opportunity for a Pessimist. You will get one for sure then the quit the job and go on in your life.
All the best.

Dear Mr.Bhandhavi
Thanks a lot for your reply.But I'm really not sure for how long I can continue becoz till now I was holding on by not being pessimist only....Even though I have tried to involve and assist my coworkers so that I can learn things but for my dismay there is lot of internal politics which is making things worse again.What I felt here is even the Admin Mgr have no powers, he is mere playing the role of a clerk.
Sorry for my repeated mails in this regard but I don't have anybody to guide me and probably as you know your mind and body also doesn't support you when you are are disturbed.
thanks and regards

Allright........ Be calm and It is a bit odd to be addressed as Mr as i am a girl. When you have decided to quit then do it but lets think of it in another way.........
Is there anything wrong with you or your perception : No
The work environment is not supporting you work long or stay back ? Right? : Yes
You are right but situation is worse: Yes
Then why the hell your career get spoiled without your fault and bcoz of somebody(situations) else. So be calm and try for another job. If you quit now then there will be alot of unanswerable questions.
All the best.

Dear Mr. P
I understand your concern about the present job. But the thing is that you have to create work for your self as an Admn. Manager of your company. It appears that you do not have any idea about Administration. If you really feel,you have lot of work in your company. No body will allot work to you. You have to create work for your. Turn the page and learn the work is the motto of the Administrative activity. You can collect administration information from all the sources, prepare data base, create and formulate profarmas, designes, tables and work out for data base preparation of your company people. Sitting idle is not a worthy thing. Work is worship. I advise you not to quit the job. Your experience in the present job will fetch you in future.
