    It's a great place to work, if you are willing to work.

    I have been working at Gray Television

    Pros

    The senior management is by far the best I've ever worked with, they actually care about their employees. From the president on down, all are very approachable. Benefits aren't bad, full medical and dental, a 401(k) plan and an employee stock purchase program. Unlike a lot of companies, this is one you can see yourself retiring with, no matter where you are in your career.

    Cons

    Money, or lack of it, always seems to be an issue in the company, at all divisions. Projects tend to be shot down under the premise "there just isn't enough money to do this," or "the ROI isn't high enough for us." Same applies for hiring additional staff. It's not uncommon that an employee is doing the work of two or more. This is really a company where you need to be resourceful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, if we feel that you have our backs, we'll have yours.

    Master Control Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlottesville, VA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Gray Television in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application through the HR portion of the website. I was called within a week and went in for an interview with the Master Control Op Manager and the Senior Broadcast Engineer. The interview was fairly straightforward. I had no experience. I then had to come in for a working interview, which was fairly easy even though right away I could tell that the responsibilities for this position far outweighed the pay.
