    I worked at Playboy part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Top-notch creative collaborative team environment responsible for both Web and Print
    Liberal working environment
    I was afforded a chance for professional growth
    Worked for an American Icon
    Got to see the end of an era but also got to be part of an era...no matter how little time I spent there

    Cons

    Our department was disbanded upon move to LA
    VERY low pay - to start out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Playboy.

    Interview Details

    An interviewed was scheduled for Santa Monica, CA office. Was cancelled 3 times the morning of the interview, 2 times about 1.5 hours before the actual interview when I was in commute. 4th time it was pushed back 4 hours, 30 min before I showed up.
    Finally when I interviewed I was told by interviewer straight to my face that unless I knew someone here or I can directly benefit him in any was shape or form, dreaming about the position was the closest I would ever get to the position
