Health Instructor, Event Coordinator/per diem (Former Employee), Irvine, CAApril 8, 2014
Pros: the events & classes were on weekends, which allow to keep my other ft job.
Cons: no cons.
Planning the agenda and the best utilization of the budget, to reach more members of the community. Maximizing the resources provided and creating new liaisons in the community .
I learned about planning, large events and involving the community, creating volunteering groups and leadership.
The coworkers are all committed to service and education, representing – more... the mission of the AHA
It was difficult to gather the largest groups to achieve the goals, the involvement of the churches and school administration played a big role in our success.
To be able to have tangible results in the series that were thought over 4 weeks of classes. – less

Year round busy workplace working on saving lives
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Utica, NYJanuary 29, 2014
Typical day in the office consists of answering phones, helping walk-ins, scheduling and working with volunteers and updating the computer databases. Year round work is done for America's Greatest Heart Run & Walk with various committee meetings, print materials and logistics to be worked on.

I truly enjoy my job, working with the volunteers and being – more... in the life saving business. I would have to say the most difficult part of my job is dealing with the office politics. The office dynamics for such a small office are strained at times with pettiness and favoritism. Unfortunately management doesn't see all the issues that exist. – less

Intern for the American Heart Walk
Intern (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJanuary 27, 2014
1) Help out in any way to prepare for the American Heart Walk including making phone calls, going to events, etc.
2) I learned how to become a better public speaker as I often gave presentations to companies, etc.
3) The Management was awesome. The nicest people I have ever met and were always there for me.
4) Co-workers were just as friendly and were – more... always open to helping me out with anything I needed.
5) At first the hardest part of the job was public speaking, but after a while it became pretty natural.
6) Going to events was always enjoyable as I got to set up a table and explain to people what the American Heart Walk was, etc. – less

AWFUL
Employee (Current Employee), NYC AreaJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: generous with pto and other wellness perks
Cons: they work you to the bone at a low salary, and do not allow you to have time to pursue the wellness benefits.
There is NO work life balance in this organization unless you are an hourly employee. The compensation is well below what even other non-profit organizations are paying. They expect you to work "until the job is done," although the job is NEVER done, especially when they have employees essentially working two full time positions. High turnover, even – more... at management levels. Managers are sometimes borderline psychotic. – less
