  1. Hello, I was hired 2.5 months ago as a Senior Administrative Assistant. The manager I work for has never had an Administrative Assistant and did not ask for one but was told he was getting one. Since I've started I have not been given any concrete direction. Any attempts to understand what responsibilities I will be taking on for him have been brushed aside with a, "We are still building a list of things for you to do." I've been an Administrative Assistant for other managers and know what my essential job functions should be, but again I'm not being given access to the tools I would need, like calendars, emails or even managing the flow of traffic in and out of his office. I have suggested we have daily or weekly meetings and he agrees with the idea but never commits to it. Currently my days are spent reading books and waiting for other members of the department to give me tasks they need completed that they do not have time for. Recently he did have me reach out to another employee to gather information for a project. When I followed up with the employee on whether or not they were able to review the requested information, they said they went to him personally to discuss it and I had no idea. Other assistants within the company have advised I give him time to adjust. Should I begin being more assertive or should I continue to wait for him to decide he's ready to provide me duties? Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Bree
