    I worked at Gray Television part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Experience. They gave me a chance when no one else would.

    Cons

    Pay. I asked if I could be trained for weekend director, and they informed me that I'd have to learn other jobs that will be phased out first. They are going HD some time this year, and will be reducing the staff. My position was only part times you can not exceed 29 hours a week. But, being there at 4AM, you're too tired to do anything else. If you can live with your parents, or get support elsewhere, it may be worth...

    Advice to Management

    Management was great! They are always doing things for employees. It's not their fault that behind the scenes people don't matter enough to get paid more money and treated differently.

    I have been working at Gray Television full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Our station hires lots of young people right out of school. It’s good to be able to help them learn and start a career. If you participate the corporate office has monthly challenges and programs to win prizes and nominate coworkers for prizes. Long time employees get a good amount of time off/pto. Excellent 401k match.

    Cons

    We have lots of turnover because people want to learn from us then to a bigger market. The TV business can mean you have to work irregular hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having the monthly programs it helps morale. Lower the monthly medical insurance costs if you can.
