Say no. Say when you do work that you find routine, you always try to do it faster or a smarter way so it doesn't seem so boring.
dont say yes.
I appreciate this tasks must be done
you could say no, that because it's routine you know what you're doing and that makes it easy and also that even though you may have some of the same things to do every day that each day brings its own challenges and that's the interesting part. Plus, on the routine thing, you could say that you're the type of person who likes to be organised and to know what to do when etc. and that's the benefit of having a routine.
Since you joined this board today you have asked five questions all about administrative assistants, what is with you and admin.assistants? it's only a menial office job for chrissake
Routine work can feel montonous at times but I realize that routine work such as filing, replying to the same inquiries, typing the same letter, cleaning up the staff kitchen etc. are all part of the BIG picture. If I am performing the routine tasks satisfactorily then every other person in the organization can be getting on with his/her job. I am showing management that I can be counted on and management might keep me in mind for more new and less routine responsibilities.
That's what you could say.
As an aside, and don't say this!.all work can become routine and boring regardless of the position. That's the point when many people decide to change jobs and look for something more challenging. They get to know the job so well they can do it in their sleep! You aren't interviewing for a job which you will have for the rest of your life. See this job opportunity as a stepping stone for your CAREER!
First define routine work. I think you really mean reptitive work; right?
To avoid getting bored I make a lively game of repetitive work. For example , I count the time it takes me to read and sign 20 letters and try to do the next 20 faster. If I have hundreds to do, I promise myself rewards, a coffee after the first 100, ten minutes break after the second 100, a night out after the first thousand.
