I worked at WNET (Less than a year)
Great place to work, lots of room for growth, plenty of opportunities to jump on, great people at the company who want to teach and help you growth.
Unpaid, but really not many cons. A bit unstructured but its up to you to take all opportunities that are available so you grow as much as possible.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at WNET (New York, NY) in August 2016.
HR phone call was very cursory, and seemed more interested in discussing salary requirements than providing information on the company.
In-person meeting with hiring manager was fine. Hiring manager was more interested in micro-view questions like past campaign work (I could have just given you case studies, had you asked) and "what-if-you-had-this-job" hypotheticals instead of a more macro-view discussion on the role social media has in, or the challenges and opportunities specific to, the company. No discussion about the company's own strategies and philosophies about social, nor mine. No discussion about how non-linear viewing habits effect marketing linear TV, and what or how social/digital can contribute to overcome those. The interview was more basic and focused on tactics and process than I've had in years, it was a bit jarring.
HR ignored follow-ups, until sending a form letter rejection email weeks later.
