    I have been working at CBS Radio part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, fun shifts, great events, get to meet celebrities. It's very easy to get to on the 1 train from Penn station in New York City.

    Cons

    Long hours, inconsistent schedule, demeaning bosses. You have to drive a lot in a big station truck which can be stressful and annoying after long shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the promotions assistants more because they Are the bread and butter of the station. Without us, your events would fall apart.

    I worked at CBS Radio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved selling the digital products and events through 98.7 AMP Radio. I have a great network of businesses that I worked with to grow their business including automotive, dental, cosmetic surgery, activity parks, casinos, health insurance agencies and venues.

    Cons

    The company was not a positive environment to work in. A new CEOwas brought in recently and I was a part of a 200 employee lay off in July.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others with the same respect you deserve
