Miserable and overall depressing.

Board Operator (Former Employee)
Tampa, FL

I worked at Salem Communications part-time for less than a year

ProsCompany has excellent Christian programs.

ConsInexperienced management singles out particular employees and makes their lives miserable. The company does not hire the best qualified person for a job opening. There are intangibles that are unwritten policies that Salem Communications follows to hire and promote friends of present employees and then disregard any intelligent desicion making in the hiring process. I would rate this company as the absolute worst employer in America.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should treat all employees with respect and dignity. Favoritism given towards employees that are playing office politics every day places this company's Christian message that broadcasts in their programs as being hypocritical when management communicates a mean spirited and overcritical company policy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Management terrorized and threatened salespeople on a daily basis.

Account Executive (Former Employee)

ProsIt's a large company that offers benefits.

ConsCommission structure is such that you very rarely make a commission.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpgrade your tower, get a new, stronger signal so that the station could be heard across the entire market. Promote the station so people are aware and listen.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sell Your Soul for a God Job

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Salem Communications

ProsIf you care about nothing more than giving to the lord, this is the job for you.

ConsThose interested in stability, promotions and real-world experiences should stay away. Most of the people here only work here because they can't find a job elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry honesty. You preach it, may as well practice it!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
