great company for working flexible part-time hours
Content Coordinator (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – December 10, 2017
On a typical day, as content coordinator, I interview people in person and over the phone, write their stories, collect articles from other people and maintain relations with our sponsors who advertise in the magazine. I spend a lot of time at my computer, but I also get out to maintain my connection to what is going on in our community.
The culture is laid back and friendly. I love most of the people I work with, including my managers. I have learned a lot about community relations and advertising from them. I have also sharpened my writing skills significantly.
I love getting to know people in the community and getting to write for a living. I also enjoy the flexibility of the position, so I can still spend time with my family and do volunteer work.
Working with the some of the sponsors can be frustrating, though. Compensation isn't great, and there is no paid time off. There is also not much room for advancement, unless I want to give up the writing portion of my position and focus more on securing advertisers.
no health benefits or paid time off
