Pros

Work with businesses across various industries.
Good pay, if you work hard and sell, sell and sell.
nice co-workers.

Cons

no direct path for advancement.
no growth opportunities.
stressful career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be open to employee recommendations.
provide opportunities for advancement.
be a mentor as opposed to a micro-manager. Its a 100% commission sales job, we know we have to sell, otherwise we do not get paid!

    Pros

    Co-workers and some of the staff make it a good place to be. This is the only reason I have stay as long as I have. I have seen too many people come and go over the past year. KABB is stronger than KMYS but both stations have something worth while.

    Cons

    Management is out of control. Smoke and mirrors. High turnover. Use caution with this company and it's non-compete - they will short pay you when working for the company and will try to keep you from making a decent living with one of the other stations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating the staff like garbage. Be the leaders. Build moral. Be on time and accountable for your actions. Go to management 101 classes - all levels of management really need a refresher course. Maybe staff will stick around longer.

    Difficult place to start working, management lies about accounts your given, and expectations unrealistic.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good hours and good training.

    Cons

    No gas reimbursement, management always has their thumb in your back, good money is hard to make in smaller markets, management lies about future billings of accounts given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let salepeople do their job and be realistic about money that will be made when first starting.
