Many executive drivers have the image of getting a high salary because they are drivers. However, some people may have stopped changing jobs because they are worried about how the waiting time will be handled and whether they will be working on holidays. Therefore, here, we will explain the salary of executive drivers on standby and the treatment of working on holidays.
1. What is the job of an executive driver?
An executive driver is a driver who transfers executives, including the president who works for a specific company. In some cases, you will be dispatched from a taxi company. Since we sometimes carry people from outside the company, we need the technical ability to drive according to the needs of our customers. It is also part of my job to be courteous and always be attentive. Working hours must be in line with the officer's schedule. As a result, executive drivers often have to work on holidays or work overtime.
2. How long is the driving time per day?
The amount of time an officer driver drives throughout the day depends on the officer's schedule. First of all, the day's work begins when you pick up at the officer's home. After sending an officer to the company, there is a waiting time until the officer finishes his duties. As soon as the officer's work is finished, I will drive to the officer's house again. Driving time also depends on how far the executive's house is from the company. Generally, it seems that you will drive for about 2 to 4 hours a day. When an officer goes to a business partner, he / she must pick up and drop off at the destination. When traveling far away, we may pick you up at the airport or train station, so driving time may be longer depending on the pick-up location.
3. Is the waiting time a break time?
The officer driver must be on standby while the officer is in business. Except for the driving time, all the time is waiting time. For this reason, executive drivers generally wait 5 to 7 hours for 2 to 4 hours a day. If you include breaks, you will be detained for 9 hours a day. The waiting time is not free, but it is used for checking the schedule of officers, cleaning the car and doing maintenance. It is important to prepare carefully so that officers and business partners can board with peace of mind.
In addition, wages will be incurred during the waiting time when you are not driving, so we will do a preliminary survey so that we can always provide high-quality service while waiting. If an officer visits a business partner, know the route to the business partner. Remember the back roads and the shortest route, even in the event of an accident or traffic jam. If officers have lunch on the move, it's also important to find out what restaurants are on the road.
Basically, it is not necessary for the officer driver to speak positively, but when the officer speaks, it is necessary to answer accurately. Therefore, make sure that you can deal with topics such as traffic information, weather, and social conditions on a daily basis so that you can talk to them at any time. Even if you are told a topic that you do not understand, you need the ability to talk together. It is also the duty of the officer driver to take care to create a good atmosphere inside the car so that the officer can work comfortably.
4. Do you have designated working hours?
The working hours of executive drivers are the same as those of general employees, and the basic working hours are fixed. Therefore, it is not a commission system like a taxi driver, so it can be said that the monthly salary is often stable. However, although working hours are fixed, there are many cases where officers ask for pick-up and drop-off during non-working hours. For entertainment and errands with business partners, you are required to pick up and drop off even on holidays and at night. For overtime work, overtime allowance, midnight allowance, and holiday allowance will be paid separately. However, in the case of intermittent work such as an officer driver, the employer can exclude the application of overtime work by obtaining permission from the government agency. Therefore, some companies are exempt from the obligation to pay overtime and holiday allowances, so there may be no other than midnight allowances.
The work of executive drivers is intermittent!
We have touched on the working styles of executive drivers, but could you deepen your understanding of the work system and salary? It can be said that executive drivers often work intermittently because the pick-up time is different. Therefore, it is important to check the treatment to see if overtime work is permitted. If you are a "Transact" that provides a service to dispatch drivers, you can work as an executive driver with favorable treatment.

What kind of experience does the executive secretary of a temporary worker have? When hiring an executive secretary, it is necessary to take immediate action. It is a good idea to ask a temporary staffing company who has a lot of experience as an executive secretary who can respond to the request immediately. What kind of skills do people have specifically registered?
■ I want to demonstrate my clerical and management skills! High management ability
Some of the people who have registered for dispatching have high clerical processing ability, and among them, those who have experience of dispatching as executive secretaries can be said to be professionals. You'll be working with a company executive, so if you can't handle important documents without fail, you won't be able to do this job. In addition, it is necessary to prioritize and process without delay. It is also a characteristic of a competent person to be able to make full use of proper document management and filing skills. Also, since mistakes such as the customer's job title and name are basically not allowed, you will be able to pay attention to the details. In addition, some people have experience, including management. Some of them are now dispatched to work, while others are formerly full-time employees and have multiple executive secretaries, and have been assigned the leadership role of bringing together the secretaries. In large companies, there are many people who are dispatched to work as secretaries, so we sometimes train such people.
■ I want to support the company and boss behind the scenes! Powerful under the edge
One of the important skills required is the ability to instantly determine and support the executives with whom you work to focus on your work. It is also necessary to have the ability to grasp the overall situation in daily work and to be proactive in acting and preparing. You also need to have good insight into what your executives need now and what they should do now. In addition, through social gatherings inviting outside customers and arrangements for important meetings, it is possible to give detailed consideration to how to make arrangements to make customers happy. If this kind of support can be done naturally without burdening the officers, it would be a competent officer secretary. If we can support not only the work of officers but also the work of outsiders so that they can proceed smoothly, we can say that we are truly unsung heroes.
■ I want to make full use of the office software skills I acquired in my previous job! High PC skills
It may be necessary to improve work efficiency and in daily work. It is necessary to hire people who have the ability to respond immediately to the office software installed in the company. Typical software that is used frequently is document creation software, spreadsheet software, and presentation material creation software. You may also need to create business letters and documents, manage expense reimbursement and various numbers, and create materials for presentations to customers. In addition, executive appointments can change frequently. It's common to rebook or respond to sudden schedule changes in your company's meeting room. You will also have to be able to master the schedule management software. Those who work as executive secretaries can contribute to the work of executives by having high PC skills.

The job of an executive driver is not particularly difficult compared to other driver positions. However, many people tend to have the image of "somehow difficult work" because they run with the VIP of the company. As a result, some people may hesitate to choose a position as an executive driver. Therefore, this time we will introduce what is necessary for executive drivers.
1. What an executive driver needs!
An executive driver is a driver who belongs to a specific company and transfers the president and officers. With that in mind, I will explain what executive drivers should learn by dividing it into four points.
1-1. Safe driving
As an executive driver, the first thing to keep in mind is safe driving. Safe driving is something that all drivers should adhere to, but it has especially important implications for executive drivers. Because it is a company officer who is in the car. You must be fully aware that in the unlikely event that it can have a significant impact on your entire company. By the way, there are some people who pay attention only to officers by having officers on board, but that is also a problem. Of course, it is important to pay attention to the officers, but it is also necessary to pay attention to the surroundings so as not to be involved in an accident. Always keep in mind the fact that driving safely and getting executives safely to their destination is a top priority for executive drivers.
1-2. Car maintenance
In order to achieve safe driving, not only the precautions while driving but also the maintenance status of the car are important as well. This is because, no matter how carefully the driver drives, poor maintenance of the vehicle itself increases the risk of an accident. Therefore, you need to know all about how to maintain the vehicle. On top of that, it is the job of the executive driver to maintain the car on a daily basis even when not driving. In particular, when driving a long distance with an officer on board, you must not neglect to check the tire pressure. Also, clean the inside of the car and wipe the windows frequently so that the officers can spend their time comfortably in the car.
1-3. No accidents, no violations
In order for officers to ride with peace of mind, it is natural to keep in mind no accidents and no violations. By the way, when hiring a driver, some driving record is required. At that time, the gold license that shows no accidents and no violations is proof that you have advanced technology. Therefore, if you want to be an executive driver, it is important to drive the car carefully so as not to cause an accident or violation before applying. In addition, even after becoming an executive driver, we must strive to maintain a gold license not only for safe driving during work but also for private driving.
1-4. Understanding geography
Officer drivers are required to deliver officers to their destinations on time at the same time as driving safely. For example, if you have an important transaction but you are late for the time, it can be a big loss for your company. To prevent such a situation, it is important to know the geography around the destination. However, no matter how much you hit the travel route in your head, you will still be anxious when you go to the first place. In that case, don't forget to preview it in advance. Nowadays, many cars are equipped with car navigation systems, but it is not uncommon to get lost in crowded places. If you don't know the land, it's a good idea to make a preliminary inspection so that you can reach your destination smoothly.
Understand the work of executive drivers
The job of an executive driver is not difficult at all, but it is true that there are many things that must be done. If you don't understand that point, you may make an unexpected mistake. To prevent mismatches, it is important to know in advance what the executive driver must do. After that, let's think about "whether I can handle it" and "whether I can work hard all the time".

For the management of small and medium-sized enterprises, it may be difficult to get an idea of what the job of an executive secretary is like. In such a case, if you consult with a temporary staffing agency, you will be able to discover unexpectedly whether you can ask for such a job.
■ Leave the work that new full-time employees cannot handle!
I think there are many small and medium-sized enterprises that have had such an experience that they are having trouble getting into the details of their work due to lack of manpower. I was relieved that a new employee had finally joined the company, but for a while I thought it was a simple task and couldn't do it at all. Still, there are not enough senior employees who can support them. If you find yourself in such a situation, you may want to consider hiring an executive secretary. Many people have the ability to quickly organize detailed work under various circumstances.
■ Recommended for employees on long vacations!
The biggest advantage of being able to hire an executive secretary under a dispatch contract is that you can rest assured that you will be a substitute for employees who need long vacations due to illness, injury, maternity leave, long-term care, etc. Many people have experience working in a variety of situations, so you will soon be able to integrate into the workplace. He has a high ability to grasp the situation, is accustomed to sudden situations, and will be quick to learn work. There is no need to explain the basic reception again, and you can expect immediate response as an immediate force in a limited period of time. Finding the right people is not an easy task in these limited-term situations. If it is a dispatch contract, the period can be specified at the time of contract from the beginning, and if you are looking for immediate work force, it can be said that an experienced officer secretary is suitable.
■ First of all, realize the merits of the secretary with the dispatch service!
When you collect information from temporary staffing agencies and recruitment agencies and have some understanding of what kind of work an executive secretary is, you may move on to hiring. Still, if this is your first experience with the company, you may be a little worried. Even if you solicit recruitment in-house, there may be various unclear points such as how to proceed with the interview. In such a case, it is recommended to use the service of the temporary staffing company. By explaining what kind of personnel you are looking for to the staff of the temporary staffing company, you will be able to introduce the right person from the personnel registered at the temporary staffing company. You don't even have to advertise for recruitment yourself.

A secretary generally has the image of a beautiful woman. I have the impression that it seems to be popular, but there are rumors that it is easy to miss the marriage period. Let's examine why such rumors are easy to make.
■ Is it true that many secretaries are unmarried?
It can be said that many secretaries are unmarried women. That's because everything needs to be in line with the schedule of the officer in charge. Of course, vacations and vacations need to be tailored to the officer in charge, so unmarried people are easier to schedule. You also need the help of your secretary when the officer in charge has to respond to sudden events inside or outside the company or in the event of an obituary. Therefore, unmarried women who can respond flexibly to sudden schedules are preferred. It is strictly forbidden for the secretary to get sick and take a sudden rest. You are required to be in good physical condition on a regular basis. This is one of the reasons why unmarried women are preferred over married women because married women may take a rest due to poor physical condition of their husbands and children. However, secretaries who can work and secretaries who are compatible with each other are often requested to continue even if they get married, so if you want to continue even if you get married, it is important to accumulate trust and trust.
■ Is the secretary surprisingly popular?
Although the secretary has a gorgeous impression in the drama, the current situation is that there is generally a lot of sober work. It can be said that there is a lot of in-house work such as preparing and cleaning up visitors by doing clerical work and arranging work on behalf of the officer in charge. In addition, because it acts as a bridge to convey instructions and orders from the officer in charge to people inside and outside the company, depending on the character of the officer in charge, he or she may be shunned regardless of the secretary. It can be said that it is not popular with people who know the secretary's secrets, because sometimes you have to make an unreasonable request to someone who is far older than you or in a position. In addition, because we must always respond to sudden schedules, we are often shunned not only because we need to be nimble, but also because it is difficult to take vacations. However, the experience of support and responsiveness that can be cultivated in secretarial work is often useful in daily life, and it is a popular occupation for those who want to grow as a woman and want to work with a decent person. I can say.
■ Do secretaries have fewer encounters than expected?
If you work for a company where you can have a secretary and you are surrounded by excellent business people, you may have many encounters. However, surprisingly, the secretary has never met. First of all, there are many women who belong to the same department, and then there are many elderly married men who are related to the officer in charge, and there are few opportunities to meet young male employees and men outside the company. There are few opportunities to accompany the officer in charge when going out, and the current situation is that there are basically many cases where guests are welcomed. Even if a young man from outside the company visits, he often accompanies his boss, and it can be said that there is almost no situation where he can talk freely. Since it will be a prominent presence in the company, it is difficult for men to approach it, which is one of the reasons why there are few encounters. However, because I am involved with excellent men on a daily basis, my eyes to see men are cultivated.
