Human Resources (HR) Coordinator Reviews

What is it like working as a Human Resources (HR) Coordinator?
Human Resources (HR) Coordinator in Houston:
"HR Corporate World."
Pros: Having inside knowledge of what hiring managers are looking for in new candidates. Exposure to all job positions and salaries. On-boarding new executives. Being well-versed on the company's policies and procedures. Having extensive knowledge of the companies benefits.
Cons: Too much paperwork and information. Having to complete safety in-services every year.
Human Resources (HR) Coordinator in Phoenix:
"HR Is An Amazing Place To Be If You Are Involved Management."
Pros: Knowing that my company helps people and our community. I am proud of what the company as a whole stands for. I enjoy knowing on a daily basis that I'm assisting our employees country wide. It is fulfilling to know that even the small tasks matter.
Cons: The slight flexible work schedule has been robbed from a few of us. Almost constant threats of write ups and possible termination for tardiness (less than 5 minutes). There's another new person on my team that has a special work schedule, somehow that's not bending the "new rules." A few people got promotions because they are loud and rude.
