I have been working at Media Star Promotions full-time (more than a year)Pros
Smaller headquarters gives you the opportunity to work closely with all the staff in different departments including the CEO, Vice President and other executives. Executive team especially the CEO really care about their employees not only in the office but also in their personal lives as well. This company has a casual office environment, including dress code and the over all atmosphere. Having "Fun Fridays" to welcome the weekend and relieve a bit of office stress from the week.
They participate in activities that better the local community, also acting as "team building" exercises. Charity involvement plays a large part of this company's culture, from dog walks that support local animal shelters to building houses and helping to repair local community centers. Employees look forward to the company's "Give Back" days.
This company also gives the opportunity to implement new and exciting programs and events, based of "good ideas". When programs end as they do from time to time, the Executive team tries to re-position employees into new roles so they can continue to stay on staff. This company takes chances on the potential they see in employees and recognizes hard work.Cons
The casual office environment while fun, at times can feel a bit unprofessional if you are used to a cooperate environment. Office hours (10 am-6 pm) can be tough if having to schedule personal appointments at places that are not open during the weekends. Some policies such at the "lateness policy" at times seem unfair, considering a large chunk of the employees usually stay well past closing hours to complete work and projects.Advice to ManagementAdvice
At times training is not through and clear direction is not always given on some programs and projects, leaving employees having to "figure it out" and learn as they go, resulting frustration and unsatisfactory work.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Interview Details
The company was brought to my attention by a friend. Had one face to face interview which went so well they asked me if I was willing to relocate for a position higher than the one I was applying for at the time. With my wife and kids I was unable to relocate at the time. I was passed up on the position so another manager could hire a friend that was fired from the job previously for a laundry list of things. Which is all fair if a company chooses to hire that way. What I did not like was how unprofessional they were at letting me know the position was filled. It was very shady contacting them. I called a few times after already knowing how and why the position was filled, to thank them for the opportunity to interview and let them know if the person hired does not work out for a second time, to not hesitate contacting me. I was avoided like the plague and hung up on.Interview Questions
