    Guaranteed to be one of your most grueling, underpaying jobs as a Producer

    I have been working at Reveille

    Pros

    Your co-workers will most likely be cool, capable, pleasant...unsuspecting first-timers like you. On a crew of approximately 50 people, only 8 returned from the prior season and 2 of the 8 quit before season's end.

    Cons

    The rate was awful to begin with, approximately 50% less than the same gig at other production companies, but the hours were reminiscent of the Industrial Revolution. I signed on for a 40-50 hour work week, but worked 7 days/week with no days off for 3 months straight, averaging 75-90 hours/week...with no overtime pay whatsoever. All told, I could've made as much money and worked less glueing soles into Air Jordans at a Chinese Nike plant. Crews are grossly understaffed, overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to how your Executive Producers are working/treating your crews, and make sure that they are treating the crews humanely. Discrimination, psychological harassment and labor laws violations run rampant on your shows. You're one disgruntled worker away from a lawsuit.

    Manager, Music Creative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Reveille in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager was not a HR person, actually the outgoing manager in the position being interviewed for. She was relaxed and informal, and the interview lent itself to be an informal, conversational style. Office was the Hollywood location, with free parking and the interview was conducted in a boardroom. Scheduling of the interview, and subsequent follow up was conducted by email (and oddly not from an official Reveille email address), though I did call initially to confirm the times.
