What is it like working as a Marketing Coordinator?
Marketing Coordinator in Findlay:
Pros: Marketing consists of some many different things for both outside the company and internally. I enjoy event planning, creative thinking, and that my days are not boring. We do a lot of 'behind-the-scenes' work and help push out new information, so we have the perks of learning information ahead of general staff and being the facilitators of how the information is presented.
Cons: It can become stressful trying to balance everything from our weekly calendar to facilitating lunch and materials for sales training, or following up on sponsorship requests to sending marketing flyers out to the sales staff at each location. Also that everyone looks to you and your department for the best materials, information, and resources to make a sale which then sometimes turns into me becoming the sales person for them.
Marketing Coordinator in Chattanooga:
"Great Perks very Low Pay."
Pros: I am able to network and meet a lot of people in my field. I have gained more knowledge of marketing in a field I never thought I would go into. It is challenging and keeps me on my toes. I have learned a lot and continue learning as I go.
Cons: The accountability of people who do not do their jobs correctly. The sometimes overly lax environment. I am seriously underpaid for the amount of work I do. Sometimes since I have no one in a high position to go to I am left to fend for myself a lot of times.

"Gaining Excellent experience."
Pros: I like how much responsibility I am given and that I am learning about all aspects of marketing.

Marketing Coordinator in Steamboat Springs:
"Customer Service Manager/Marketing Coordinator."
Pros: It's fun, strategic, and challenging to advertise trash service.
