I have been working at Mood Media full-time (more than an year)Pros
+Location, both south & downtown
+Casual Environment: you're allowed to speak your mind, encouraged to give new ideas and question established process, they don't care what you wear to work, (the rule is "don't offend) and they don't blow a gasket if you're 5 minutes late
+Great social environment; everyone that works here is friends with one another
+Benefits are great & affordable
+Always looking inward for promotion first
+Management: Every manager I've had has been wonderfully supportive and understanding, and very good at giving solid direction.Cons
-Training: this isn't because it's not provided, but because we have a large array of products and services, and because we still have so may problems that we inherited from Muzak. It's too much for one person to learn all at once; so much of this is "learn as you go," and that's not for everyone.
-Work/Life balance: if you want to be successful here, forget about having a life outside your job.
-Gossip: We never have any idea what Management is doing until it's already done, and that causes there to be a large amount of gross gossip going around at any point in time.
-Pay: You are going to do more work than you ever imagined in your life and you will not be adequately paid for it. (I do not think that management is immune to this either, however)
-Incompetence: They have been in such a hurry to fill positions and attempt to handle the amount of work being thrown at us, that they are not being smart in who they hire. This leads to a vast swath of the company's employees being unbelievably incompetent and frustrating.
-Muzak: This company was so mismanaged from an operations stand point that we will be dealing with the fall out for years to come.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop hiring from temp agencies! Create a training department for your entire company - you need it. Pay your good employees what they're worth, and get rid of the incompetent ones who aren't. Celebrate more as a company; every time you bring us together, it improves moral by leaps and bounds. Stop looking to Muzak for guidance; it was a failed concept operationally, but don't ignore the history. We could learn a lot from their mistakes.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Interview Details
After applying through the company website I followed up 2-3 times by calling their main offices to get in touch with HR. I was then contacted by a third party hiring company. After about a month of waiting for them to start hiring in my local area, I was given 2 phone interviews by the third party recruiters, and then finally an in-person sit down interview with someone at Mood. The phone interviews were very casual and the interviewers were pleasant to talk to. They were more of a conversation than a formal interview.Interview Questions
