    I worked at Media General full-time

    Pros

    If you do what you are supposed to do for the most part they leave you alone & let you do your job

    Cons

    No cons. I really didn't have any problems while I was employed there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management was very approachable. Mr. Bryan seemed to be able to call everyone by name & I really appreciated that.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Media General in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The Marketing Director responded to my email the next day. I couldn't make it to the interview right away so he was nice and waited 2 weeks for me. The interview was very friendly and casual. I got a tour of the TV station and got introduced to everyone who was there. All very friendly. I received an offer after the tour but could not accept because the pay was too low.

    Interview Questions
