I have been working at Minnesota Public Radio full-time (More than 10 years)
MPR is a magnet for smart, creative people who are interested in building community through radio. It's a mission-driven non-profit organization that offers pay and benefits that are competitive with the private sector.
Because it's a medium-sized company MPR is relatively "flat" -- it isn't always easy to find a clear career path within the company. A lot of people find they need to leave the company, get experience elsewhere in a field, then come back. And because many of the job postings are very specialized, there are relatively few entry-level opportunities.
Advice to Management
I'd encourage management to create more opportunities for entry-level employees to cross-train and build their resumes within the organization.
I applied online. I interviewed at Minnesota Public Radio (Saint Paul, MN) in May 2016.
There were 200 applicants and the hiring contact interviewed 20 over the phone. The final four up for the position were selected for an person interview with 4 of the development team members.
