Re: Job responsibilities- admin

Hi Siew,
I have been working as admin support in a US MNC under contract basis. My direct report manager is a male manager but i have to work for him and also his manager who is sitting very far from my office. His manager is a female. I have been working here for 7 months and everyday i have to help her to buy food for example her lunch, tea time. Sometimes she will complain that the lunch is not good and also restricted me for going to lunch on time. My lunch time is 12pm and she asked me to buy lunch at 12:15pm. Is there any way I can escalate this issue to? It's not written in my job responsibilities that I have to buy lunch for her and I am not really willing to buy lunch for her.

Try complaining to your male manage if you really unwilling to do it for her.

The male manager is under her supervision. I don't think he will say anything regarding this matter to her.

Is there any alternative way like complaining to HR?

Do you buy lunch for your manager also? I think it is not very nice to complain and actually, there is very little HR can do. Ask her to give you a treat every now and then so that you don't have to do it for free always.
