Volunteer Coordinator Reviews

What is it like working as a Volunteer Coordinator?

Volunteer Coordinator in Atlanta:
"Love the people, don't love the pay."
Pros: Getting to work very closely with the volunteers every day, even sometimes just over email or the phone, is very satisfying. The department is made up of people who are great to work with, which makes for a generally pleasant work environment.
Cons: Despite being the coordinator for a group of about three hundred people (without whom the organization would cease to function on a day-to-day basis), this position is not treated as management level in any respect. In fact, it remains one of the lowest ranking full-time positions in the organization. Compensation is obscenely below market, and the meager number of vacation days (10, which are also supposed to make up for all of the holidays that employees of other businesses receive) does little to alleviate the frustration that brings.

Volunteer Coordinator in Boise:
Pros: I enjoy fitting the puzzle pieces of personalities together, each volunteer comes with special gifts and qualities, each patient request has unique needs that must be met. My goal is to find the right match each time to have the most successful interaction between both patient and volunteer to achieve an ideal flow to meet the needs of both parties.
Cons: Fine tuning the education aspect, trying to prepare volunteers to react to a variety of situations that may come up during their volunteer time. Managing last minute cancellations and weeding out unreliable volunteers.

Volunteer Coordinator in Washington:
"Opportunity For Growth."
Pros: I like working with people and interns. I like that I am constantly challenged and am given to opportunity to grow in my skills. I like that I get to train new volunteers in something I am extremely passionate about and that I know my work goes towards a good cause. My team is very supportive of self-care and taking the comp time is encouraged.
Cons: It can be very stressful at times and I feel like my work/my teams work is not valued at the organization. I sometimes feel overwhelmed with all my tasks. I wish that I had more opportunities for feedback to learn more about my performance.

Volunteer Coordinator in Miami:
"It's Motivational Like No Other!"
Pros: The freedom to do my job without much supervision. Using my creative writing talents, motivational skills, organizational challenges and the people.
Cons: I seem to work seven days a week and the pay!
