I learned a lot about the industry, but saw no future with the company!

Pros

Being an intern gives you the opportunity to learn about the industry and work in a fun place for college credit.

Cons

The company is literally bleeding itself dry. It keeps cutting back on employees and dispersing the work to whoever is left. If you get hired, you'll start at minimum wage and most likely never get a raise. I'd say the average full time salary pay is around $30k. Don't expect much more than that, unless you are at the top. About 80 percent of radio stations are voice tracked or syndicated. Don't expect to be a radio personality. The rate of job openings is declining and so is the pay. At least 30 people have either left or been let go in the past year, ranging from the lowest level jobs all the way up to the market manager position.

Advice to Management

You can function with a smaller staff, but pay your employees a decent salary to do the honest days work they are performing.

    Pros

    Radio talent very friendly and the company is very receptive for college interns looking to learn more about the radio industry

    Cons

    Unless someone gets fired, quits, or dies, do not expect any upward movement with this company. Also expect to do three jobs for the price of one. You will not get rich working for this company. If you have a dream of being a radio DJ, stop, because everything is syndicated and live radio is dead.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees based on the work you expect from them and don't treat them like workhorses.
