Pros

Easy jobs, most of the time I sit waiting for other people to get their job done; but still get paid for it. It has it's benefits of getting free stuff or free food at times; but I love interacting with the listeners.

Cons

Sometimes, the cliques seem to form and if you're not someone who's driving a BMW, or all up on the latest trends; you seem to be left out of different things. A lot of the time, part timers are treated as if they don't exist within the staff of a radio station.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Acknowledge part timers more; give more praise, and offer more benefits. I believe that stations need to be live 24/7, instead of pre-recorded.

    Pros

    I was with Clear Channel though the "growth" phase. When I started you felt like you were a part of something bigger. There's a certain amount of prestige working in radio. The benefits were great, and you got to meet famous folks on occassion.

    Cons

    Somewhere along the way Clear Channel lost sight with their employees and we all stopped feeling like team players in a cause and feel like numbers. The turnover in sales is high (having worked since at another company I see this is perhaps a "big company" thing). Lots of inner office politics as radio folks seem to thrive on drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconnect with your employees! They're the greatest asset you have in a businesses where you sell "air" and your brand integrity of each station is really all you have.

    Pros

    100 % commission but also unlimited earning potential, tons of perks- concerts vip satus etc. , can be creative and exciting

    Cons

    after the buy out everyone is a number. if you don't know how great it used to be you would be happy. but those longterm employess like me find the changes stifling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please quit treating everyone as a number. attuitude scores- really? let your good sales people -just go do the job with out all the bs and paperwork and silly reports. good salespeople aren't great report writers!
