    CBS Radio is a fun place to work.

    Promotions Assistant (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIt is a fun, community-like experience. Veteran employees love what they do and do it well. More experienced people happy and willing to provide advice, help to younger folk. Organizers of the Alliance for Women in Media group work at CBS Radio and support young women in their career aspirations.

    ConsAmbitious people with a passion for radio may feel they are not challenged in the Promotions Assistant position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible, worst experience ever

    Sales Assistant (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsGot to see (and work with) a bunch of celebs, attend fun events, concerts, premieres.

    ConsStressful!!! Very little pay for way too much workload. Revolving door with no stability. No promotions (ever), no pay increase, too much micromanaging.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    CBS Promotions.

    Promotions Assistant (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsI love working for CBS radio. I work in promotions and we have a lot of fun promoting what I love. We are all like family. We go out to events such as concert pre-parties, store promotions, the state fair.

    Consthere are not many hours in radio promotions.

    You get what you put in

    Part Time Producer (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    Pros*entry to concerts and clubs
    *fun environment
    *ability to network with industry bigwigs depending on what station you're at

    Be realistic about what you're applying for, and the industry that you want to get in. The experience is different for everybody. Set your goals and stick to them If there's no opportunity at the station you're at after 1 year, move on. But put yourself in a better position to move. Work hard, network, build your brand.

    Cons*No raises
    *If you're part time you have to sacrifice having a personal life to make money
    *Little to no room to move up
    *If you're not an on air host you dont mater
    *90% of the people you deal with are LIARS
    *90% of the people in the industry are crooked

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive people more opportunities to move up.

    ConsThe position was not paid

    Entertaining, great learning experience, opportunity

    Production Assistant (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsIf you like entertainment and being on your toes at all times, this is an amazing job. I work with people who believe in something greater and believe in giving others opportunities to build their dreams. Everyone is extremely supportive of each other and for the most part, every department and job title no matter what the ranking is treated with the same respect. I truly love going to work everyday.

    ConsThe salary is a bit low.

    Be wary of taking promotions

    Marketing Assistant (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsWorked with some very intelligent people who truly love the industry.

    Great experience working events all over my city. I learned the best routes to take when driving across the city to avoid traffic. Overall I had a lot of fun at this job, but my specific job is definitely for the younger crowd.

    ConsManagement frequently canned on-air personalities who made too much money. No one should be wary of taking a well-deserved promotion for fear of being fired later on.

    Radio is a dying industry.

    Choose A Better Company

    Promotions Coordinator (Former Employee)

    ProsThe name will look good on your resume.

    ConsEmployees not helpful. You go to events and stand all day without a break, or food. We traveled to all the ballparks football stadium, car shows and out door events. We had to work in the cold without proper outerwear just to display their thin jackets logo. It did not matter if you're male or female they treated us horribly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to school and get a real degree in working with people especially pubic relations and communications. You don't know how to do either.

    It was a horrible experience. No one worked as a team and everyone was for themselves and HR never followed protocol.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou get to see a lot of celebrities. There were lots of free movie screenings as well.

    ConsPeople aren't great, HR isn't supportive and the company is 10 years behind on technology. Worst company to work for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to CEO, start looking into your management team.
