Real Estate Appraiser/Assessor Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Real Estate Appraiser/Assessor in Lexington:
"Exempt means you're the be-all do-all."
If you work for a municipality, you may be the only person who is responsible to accomplish the occasionally occurring 60-70 hour work week. This is the public sector, and so all of your direct report employees are likely to be hourly employees and they (therefore) have a limited interest in your goals or making you look good.
