Resumen:
The construction of the first stage of the Pierre Auger Observatory, designed for research ofultra-high energy cosmic rays, began in 2001 with a prototype system. The Observatory has beencollecting data since early 2004 and was completed in 2008. The Observatory is situated at 1400 mabove sea level near Malarg├╝e, (Mendoza province) in western Argentina, covering a vast plain of3000 km2, known as the Pampa Amarilla. The Observatory consists of a hybrid detector, in whichthere are 1660 water-Cherenkov stations, forming the Surface Detector (SD) and 27 peripheralatmospheric fluorescence telescopes, comprising the Fluorescence Detector (FD). Over time, theAuger Observatory has been enhanced with different R&D prototypes and is recently being to animportant upgrade called AugerPrime. In the present contribution, the general operations of theSD and FD will be described. In particular the FD shift procedure - executable locally in Malarg├╝eor remotely by teams in control rooms abroad within the Collaboration - and the newly SD shifts(operating since 2019) will be explained. Additionally, the SD and FD maintenance campaigns,as well as the data taking and data handling at a basic level, will be reported.
