As an office manager, you want to make sure everything is running smoothly, from the day-to-day responsibilities of everyone in the office to managing a small administrative staff, your role is pretty important.
Office managers typically work a normal schedule of 40 hours a week. This is a plus as it's definitely nothing crazy like other management positions when it comes to your schedule.
While leaving the office after 8 hours each day seems glamorous, it's not all daffodils and daisies. In fact, office managers tend to be under a lot of stress, most of the time. Contrary to the Michael Scott character who seemingly coasts by each day without getting much done, actual office managers stay under pressure from top management to make sure everything is running properly.
