Event Coordinator Reviews

What is it like working as an Event Coordinator?

Event Coordinator in Detroit:
"Event Logistics at a Barbecue."
Pros: The flexible schedule and lack of uniform is great. I am allowed the freedom and autonomy to make choices.
Cons: Often a lack of support from the restaurant itself. Resentment from staff over what they consider a "cushy" job.

Event Coordinator in Columbus:
"Experienced based position."
Pros: I like that I can travel several times a year to each event. I am given freedom to get my work done without being watched over. I love the office environment and enjoy being around my coworkers.
Cons: As an Events Coordinator with 7 conferences a year, I don't have time to book travel and airport shuttles for staff. Because "events" is in my title, I am expected to make dinner reservations and plan staff parties.

Event Coordinator in Dade City:
"All around good very enjoyable and fulfilling."
Pros: The constant recognition of a jibe well done by your peers, managers and the people who you plan and set the event up for.
Cons: Can turn into a person who does alittle bit of everything not just event planning and setups when you have any spare time....

"I love it!"
