    I worked at Clear Channel

    Pros

    Fun place, lots of events. Got to meet celebrities and attend lots of concerts.

    Cons

    No room to grow. Local management didn't have a clue. In four years of employment, not only did I not receive a single raise, I never even received a performance review to tell me what I was doing right or wrong.

    Pros

    not the hardest of daily tasks but that can also be a con in terms of getting mundane, although there were interns to help with the more frivolous tasks. radio work felt "cool" and there was a work hard, play hard team environment.

    Cons

    growth within the company seemed difficult only in terms of time, it seemed as if i would have to wait forever to move up but that may have just been the . also, long work hours because there was a lot to be done, but again, the work itself wasn't difficult so not that much of a con

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to employees in terms of incentives, allow growth to be more possible!!

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work with radio personalities, great staff and fellow interns, meet artists, concerts, and other events. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Long standing work hours for major events/concerts, occasionally lots of down time in office, no formal training about how to carry out duties (must learn on the go), sometimes coordinators and other supervisors play favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some orientation training for interns (i.e. phone greetings because multiple radio stations' promotions are handled by one offce), keep the favoritism in check, and give more responsibility to those interns who ask and can handle more work to demonstrate abilities for potential hire after internship is completed/ or when they have graduated.

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I remember decent benefits. I was in a satellite office so I didnt deal with management at all

    Cons

    Hard to get in touch with management at times because I worked at a station that was owned by another company. I did traffic.

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good to put on resume.

    Cons

    Not enough experience in field interested in.
    Part-timers horror stories made me think again about possibly applying for a position as a Promotions Assistant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a "shadow" day to interns to follow employees who do the jobs that they are interested in.

    Find another way to upload pictures of events to websites because it is scary and not exactly safe when part-timers and interns get back to the office late at night after an event and have to go upstairs and upload photos.
