Q: What is it like working as an Administrative Coordinator?
"Stay out of the Arts!"
Pros: Helping students, preparing them for the real world.
Cons: Low pay. Stay out of the arts!!!!
Pros: The best part of my job is working with music. I like that I am in an office and it is a secure job. It's not very stressful.
Cons: It's a lot of data entry. There are times where I feel like I am not learning anything new.
"City Government Culture."
Pros: I like helping people and solving problems. Learning to be an expert in my field makes me feel valued and helpful. The work atmosphere is not hostile and work relationships are good.
Cons: With the economic downturn, positions have been cut and each person is taking on more work with no additional pay. Raises if given are 5 years between and when received are only 2% which doesn't keep up with the increase in health care expenses. Essentially I have gone backwards in pay each year that I have worked here.
Sit down, hold tight, listen and learn; then fake it until you make it. It will all come together in time.
"That I wouldn't be paid better."
To be vigilant and research properly.
Pros: I love the research involved in opening new retail stores. I love the map programs and lease plans used in my research and the people I work with.
Cons: I am not paid enough for my work and the amount of traveling to and from work.
Pros: The upside is working with different personalities and age groups and knowing how to transition between each one while staying completely neutral. The responsibility to be able to apply new ideas which in turn increase work flow or implementing new procedures that are more efficient is a task I have always enjoyed.
Cons: The stress level can fluctuate at any given time and being able to adapt to arising situations is a skill that will be tested in this position. Dealing with situations regarding employee disputes and employee mistakes that escalate to a company expense, were the only things about this position that would be the most stressful for me.
