    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 Management

    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.

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