  • Teamwork/flexibility - The Center 5400 OAA team must work together to support each other's departments, especially when an OAA is on vacation, sick, or out of the office

Posting Duration:

This posting will be open for application submissions for a minimum of seven (7) calendar days, including the ‘posting date’. Sandia reserves the right to extend the posting date at any time.

About Our Team:

You will work closely with a team of experienced Office Administrative Assistants (OAAs); managers, a few technical staff members; and professionals in ES&H and security; and other interns.

Every summer, AutonomyNM Intern Institute hosts at least 40 interns from around the nation in a building called Buena Vista Facility off Kirtland Air Force Base. The interns work full-time under supervision by Sandia Labs staff members who work in Sandia tech areas on Kirtland. The supervisors give technical instructions and answer technical questions, but do not see their interns in person daily. Each intern works autonomously from her/his supervisor and interacts daily with other interns in the Buena Vista Facility. The intern institute is managed by a Sandia manager who works on Kirtland and visits Buena Vista a few times per week.

You will maintain almost-constant presence at Buena Vista and serve as the hub of day-to-day communication with the manager and OAAs. Interns will have questions, usually on routine processes (onboarding/badging; new employee orientation, internet and intranet access; ES&H or safety procedures; payroll and time sheets; training; meeting schedule and location; security escorting for meetings in a tech area; ordering computer peripherals, etc) and occasionally on rare incidents such as handling Controlled Unclassified (CUI) information or responding to an instruction to take a random drug test, or, very unlikely, a medical or safety emergency. You will triage interns' questions and concerns and channel them to the appropriate person, most likely the departmental OAA or Manager; or another professional in ES&H, Security, Payroll, etc.

This job is an excellent opportunity to work with and learn from high-performing personnel and organizations.
