To all the EF employees...

What does a typical work day look like for you?

I am curious! I want to know what your jobs consist of, I am soooo curious to know what the warehouse looks like. Is it a seperate warehouse/corporate building type thing?

Hoping this isn't being too prying. I am just super curious to whatever you guys want to share with us!

We already know some of your job titles, but what exactly do they entail?

Well, my title is Off-site Review Program Manager, but we've made a few changes to that program (for bloggers) over the past few months, so I manage the Ambassador Program -- free products for bloggers who are willing to blog about us and link to us. So, most of my time is spent coordinating testimonials (posts about EF) with bloggers, as well as the occasional special product review or giveaway.

I also manage two Twitter accounts: @EdenAmbassadors and @EdenParties. @EdenAmbassadors is the "official" Twitter account for the Ambassador Program; besides promoting EF sales and events on it, I also promote the bloggers that are in the program. @EdenParties is our official Twitter party account -- I host bi-weekly one hour parties that feature giveaways and fun topics.

The warehouse is freaking HUGE. Everywhere you look there's a vibrator, a dildo, a lube, lingerie, etc. But don't worry -- everything is very well organized.

I am no where near caffeinated enough to give you a thorough answer. However, I have written a few posts about working for EF and the one in particular includes a number of snapshots of the warehouse. If you are interested, here is the link to that post. Numbers #54 & #58 are also about EF.

The warehouse is one place I would love to take a tour of! It's funny that it makes it to the list with the White House, the Anne Frank House, and the Louvre!

Oh man! I would love to be in that warehouse, I don't think I would ever make it out though! I want the Robo Cock lol. I wish I had time to read all those posts, have to go do grown up stuff though :/ And not the fun kind.

Will definitely be reading these later though, thanks so much for those pictures! I would have a heart attack in there lol

Ditto on the not enough coffee in the world to list all that I do. The basics?

I run EdenCafe - which means accepting or rejecting, editing, paying for, formatting, posting and advertising all submitted articles plus organizing the weekly contests, writing the posts, keeping track of the entries and announcing the winners.

I run the Video Review Program - which means assigning, approving, disapproving, paying for, watching, posting, and voting on all videos, running the video review rumbles, and about a gazillion emails a day.

I run the Offsite Sexblogger Review program - which means assigning offsite reviews to sex bloggers, approving and keeping track of contests and advertising, and a bunch more junk.

I also run the EdenCafe Twitter and Facebook plus my Carrie Eden Facebook account and all social media that pertains to EdenCafe.

I also approve, edit and publish reviews I asssign.

Whew. There is more - a whole bunch more - but you guys would faint.

I work from home in my jammies with endless access to my own coffee pot but not nearly enough time to actually get up and make the amount of coffee I need to consume!

I are Gary and Carrie Ann's minyun.

Basically, I do whatever Gary and CA tell me to...and Victoria...and Fred tell me to.

I do a lot of admin stuff (keeping spreadsheets and stuff). With Sammi and Cynthia's help, I proof assigned, not-assigned, and follow up reviews.

I make sure the video reviews for EdenTube are labels, tagged, and described correctly. (Please email CA first!)

I run both @EdenReviews and @EdenTube on Twitter. (Which explains why they get along so well).

I assign Mentor push assignments for students in the mentor program.

There's other stuff too...

I work at home too, sometimes in PJ's and sometimes not.

Jenn, Gary, Carrie Ann, JR, Victoria, and all other EF employees - we appreciate you! Yall work so damn hard and still make time to socialize with little us. How about a big ol' group hug, everyone?

Well, you guys know I'm the Community Manager, that I step in when things get heated in the forums. I handle abuse reports and instances of people behaving badly, like in the case of EdenPoints abuse. But y'all know that already! lol

I also run the main EF Twitter account (@edenfantasys) and I run our Facebook fan page and Kristi Eden.

Those are all my main tasks, but there are other little things that I take care of here and there. I am basically Victoria's right hand. heh

I work at home as well and, like Carrie Ann, I also consume a good bit of coffee. lol

What a great tour and exposition of your work. (Love the faces you made in the photos, Gary, even the paint-shopped one.)

Definitely not a faceless corporation. Thanks.

I wonder if we could start a program to add more proofreaders for you guys? So there wouldn't be so much overload of reviews maybe? I'll bring it up at the next CEC!

I'm the boss and the rumor has it - a tough one. It is true, but I love our team and care about everyone deeply. @Cynthia, I too would want all of us meet in the office daily - skype is a bitch sometimes. I hope we will be working together in one big nice place one day. Meanwhile, Eden employees are in 7 different states in US and overseas too- across 5 time zones To manage this team I try to stay organized but still rarely finish a day before 10p and always in the office 8a sharp. No complains though, I love my job and happy to see our community grow!

I would love to take a tour of the warehouse!! It would be a lot of fun, I might not want to leave once I got inside though. lol

I'm part time, like Cynthia. I help with approving, editing, and publishing reviews, and work on other projects. I also do a lot of community contact, plus I answer support questions on every topic imaginable, and then some.

I work from home too, and I consume a lot of coffee
