10 Things Only A Receptionist Will Understand About Dealing With Deliveries

Our professional administrators are the multi-tasking super heroes of most organizations - some may say the glue that holds together the logistics of a working day; from looking after deliveries to creating a great first impression for any visitors or clients who enter the building, and injecting all the fun into our - sometimes mundane - days along with it. Simply put, they are awesome.

And, with the ever evolving age of e-commerce shopping, more and more people get their internet shopping delivered to the office. It's a big job and someone has to deal with this huge influx. There are some things that only a receptionist understands, and to be more specific, some things only a reception understands about managing deliveries. Relate, celebrate, commiserate; read on and enjoy! 

#1 When you have heaps of duties to do but for some reason you seem to have taken on the role of office courier...


#2 But at least everyone is always nice to you because they know you bring them parcels...


#3 And then there's figuring out which parcel is for who...


#4 And manually typing every email to everyone who got a parcel


#5 When someone asks “Did a parcel arrive for me?” And you’re thinking, "20 parcels arrived, one of them was probably for you."


#6 The only way to see that people aren’t collecting their parcels and the mailroom starts to get a bit intense 


#7 The courier just dropped the goods and ran


#8 Everyone gets their Christmas shopping shipped to the office


#9 Oh and when everyone gets their Black Friday shopping shipped to the office
