    I worked at KTLA-TV part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All hands on deck mentality, teamwork, friendly people. Even freelancers get 401k. Supervisors are generally easy-going, give you the trust to do your job. So show up, be present and do your work and you will be recognized for it. The higher-ups take time to notice and show you their appreciation. They are also supportive say you want to switch departments, move up... they will be your mentor and help you. I still keep in touch after all these years because they were like family when I worked there.

    Cons

    Compensation is maybe on the lower-end for the local news stations for a comparable position. Some people, there are always bad apples anywhere, harbor a lot of negativity and bring it to work. I don't care about their personal lives but I do care when it impacts the productivity in the newsroom. There is some expectation that when you are called into work as a freelancer that you show up at a moment's notice. Sometimes unrealistic, but just go with it. They can tell if you are just blowing them off or genuinely want work but cannot make it. Morale seems to be going down since the shift of higher ups in the 2008-09 ... but that may not apply to your situation. Your direct supervisors are who will most dictate how your work life would be so get to know them well.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling can be more organized. Sometimes, especially on the weekends, the communication breaks down and no one seems to know what is going on. So keep a steady communication with your people whether it's on the weekdays/weekends to ensure continuity. Perhaps have a rotating weekend schedule so weekenders don't feel 'stuck' and begrudged that they have to miss every social event on the weekend.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at KTLA-TV (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was simple. Applied, received a phone call from HR, set up a meeting with an associate producer, had an in person interview. The in person interview took about an hour. Simple questions about why I wanted to intern there and what I knew about the company. It was a pleasant interview process.
