A typical day
Coordinator/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Long Beach, CAOctober 23, 2018
While advancement brings better compensation and more responsibilities, the increased need for meetings and face-to-face consultations with a wide variety of constituents can get in the way of facitating work. Average 25-32 hours of meetings per week and am forced into unpaid overtime in order to stay on top of things.
Pros
Free Education
