I worked at Sinclair Broadcast Group full-time (more than an year)Pros
This company provides opportunity for advancement, technical training and lots of places to work across the US. They have stations from the East coast to the West coast in great places to live and work. They have a 401K that is matched annually with company stock and is employee directed. The benefits are decent. The work can be challenging, fun and rewarding. They try to give back to the community as often as they can.Cons
It is a 24 hour/365 day broadcasting company. Some jobs do not have favorable hours.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at Sinclair Broadcast Group.Interview Details
I was referred for an interview by a current employee. I sent my resume directly to the sales manager; I received an immediate response. The interview was set up for the next day; it was all done via email.
The interview was very personable; they tell you all of the potential pitfalls of the position up front and are very honest and candid. The commission structure is hinted at but no definite percentages are given. Mostly they want to answer questions you have (definitely come with good questions in mind) so that you can carry the conversation on with them.
There are a series of interviews with this company; it's not one and done.
They aren't looking to hire at the moment, but interviewed me off of recommendation. Their next open position won't happen until after the first of the year, so there was no job to offer immediately-they let me know this up front.Interview Questions
