Great experience straight out of undergrad. Looking for decent pay, a fun environment, and a learning experience. Every single person works their butt off, and the lazy ones get weeded out quickly. Morale and camaraderie runs rampant. Cool morale events, free snacks and beer, get to watch sports all day.
No mobility for the every day hard worker/leader. Mobility seems to be for those initiated into the old boys club of the company. Not much diversity and poor pay even for the seasoned veterans.
Advice to Management
Bars and parties are nice, but there's a lot of unhappy people who work hard for years and are barely breaking $65k. They're unyieldingly loyal to you -- return the sentiment. They still operate under the "everyone wants to be in sports, everyone is replaceable" mentality.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Bleacher Report (New York, NY) in August 2014.
I applied for the position on the company website. Soon after I was contacted by an employee surprisingly not from B/R, but from SiriusXM, who wanted to schedule a phone interview. It turns out the position is some sort of joint project between the two companies. Most of the interview consisted of the SiriusXM employee asking me to describe my work history and my familiarity with various sports (the position required knowledge of multiple sports). When I asked about the salary, he said the company had not yet decided on what it would be, which I found strange. I didn't get the position, and I didn't hear from the person who interviewed me until I e-mailed him to follow up. The rejection letter said they had decided "to go in a different direction" with the position. When I asked what he meant by that, he said that they chose someone with more experience. Weeks later I saw that the same position was still being rotated on job boards. Many months later, it's still there. They just changed the name to Production Assistant, but the job description is exactly the same. I don't know if they simply didn't hire anyone, or if it's an entry level position and people move up quickly, in which case it's odd they said they found someone "more experienced".
