Meet the Winners of Our Administrative Professionals Day Contest
We asked our listeners where the best place to work in Shreveport-Bossier was, and they told us! We received so many great entries from employees nominating their offices and bosses for a fun Administrative Professionals Day celebration at Eldorado Casino that narrowing them down to just eight winners was tough.
Not only will the below winners get a table for four with a free round of drinks at Eldorado's Administrative Professional Day's event at the Celebrity Lounge April 23, but just showing up enters them for a wealth of prize drawings that happen at the event every 10 minutes from 4 to 7 p.m. We'll also pick winners at the event for Best Office, Most Fun Office and Best Boss.
Of course, all administrative professionals are invited to swing by and unwind, so don't be shy; it's your day after all.
Here are the winners, and what they said about their offices, co-workers and bosses.
Emily Green -- Gill Parsons and Associates
Gill Parsons and Associates is the best place to work! My bosses are laid-back, funny, and always make me feel appreciated. The work atmosphere is the best I've ever experienced, and while we get our work done, we always have fun throughout the day!
Patricia Provost -- Shreveport Internal Medicine
Words can not adequately describe how awesome our office Administrator and Doctors are. I feel like it is a privilege to work here, that is how good it is. At this office, Shreveport Internal Medicine, we are all treated with respect and everyone is valued as an important part of the team, no matter what your job or position is. Our Administrator Debbie, makes sure she is available to us should we need anything, no matter what it is she makes it happen, even if it is a family issue, it's okay.
Kathryn Cory -- Pierremont Pediatrics
I work at a pediatric office, Pierremont Pediatrics, and we are all definitely kids at heart. We have a staff FULL of fun and loving people. We have the greatest doctors, nurses, office manager, billing manager, front desk, xray, and lab staff. We all enjoy having fun like singing to each other, making jokes, pulling pranks on one another, and most importantly working with the best kids ever. During Halloween we all dress up so it shows we're a fun group and that's the doctors office isn't a scary place. We are big into St. Jude seeing how one of our doctors, Donald Mack Sr, now retired, started the St. Jude Dream home drawings. We love giving help to those who need it. Our office is 100% hard work AND 100% fun! Please pick our administrative staff!
Aimee Walker -- The Plastic Surgery Center
I work for Dr.Forrest Wall at The Plastic Surgery Center on Bert Kouns. I love my job and all the staff that I work with im excited to go to work everyday and see what each day holds. Hands down the best place I have ever worked
Mazie Marlene -- Landers Dodge
I work at landers dodge in the office. We have the coolest boss. We are like a lil family. There's nothing he wouldn't do for us. We pretty much have out own freedom. Nobody breathing down your neck. We have fun but we get our work done. There's 5 women n him he puts up with a lot of our raging hormones haha but just keeps his mouth shut. I love my job and the people I work with. We deserve to win because STEVE GILES is the best boss ever!
Nicole Marquez -- Lusk Eye Specialist
I work for Lusk Eye Specialist. I've never worked for a better place. We truly are a "work family" when I got diagnosed with cancer just recently my coworkers decided they were going to wear blue bracelets and ribbons everyday to work until I beat the cancer. (They won't have to wear them much longer :) they also threw me a "Wig, Hat, Scarf party" Lusk Eye Specialist isn't just somewhere I go everyday because I have to make a living it's a place where I can make money, make friends, and make memories. As cheesy as that sounds it's true. We have our ups and downs and yes we fight what group of coworkers don't haha. But they really have helped me and shown me that in any battle I face they are there. No one fights alone!
Amanda Breland -- South Shreveport Animal Hospital
I want to let you know that South Shreveport Animal Hospital is the most innovative and all around comfortable fun job to have, hands down! From the unpredictable staff like Laura lexo, down to the most upright caring staff as our vets, and many more ofcourse. Everyone in our facility has a great relationship with on another, and not the relationship as in just good morning, NO we have plenty of outings from awareness marathons to birthdays! We believe in everyday is something different especially in dealing with our furry little friends. They each have personalitys that you never want to see leave. I left ssah(south Shreveport animal hospital) almost a year ago to move back home to mobile, alabama with my family, but as you can see I'm back with this amazing job! It brightens up my day to be apart of SSAH along with being a part of Shreveport, La!
Teresa Green -- Teresa Green
Village Water System is THE BEST place to work. We have THE MOST AWESOME boss!!!! He is very open minded and understanding and take a special effort to train and make sure all of his employees are informed. Also our office manager is incredible. She also cross trains all of the employees and the policies are implemented to include everyone in the office. Our entire office gets along very well with each other, we communicate well with each other. This is all implemented by management and trickles down to everyone. This makes our office the best place to work and all of us are happy to come to work and complete our work. The team effort is incredible and that is not something that exists with every office. There is no division here and we all have each others back.
