    I have been working at Food Network part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly people, located in Chelsea Market next to the high line, Pay is low to average . fairly stress free environment.

    Cons

    Cancellation policy sucks. When they book you in operations (post production) they put you on hold and many times they cancel you with only 12 hours notice and no compensation. There are times they have booked you (put on hold) for weeks and will cancel you for the week the day before you go in without any compensation. I have questioned this and you end up getting penalized by not getting booked

    Advice to Management

    Cancellation policy should be changed to at least reflect a 24 hour policy. And be fairly compensated. NY Attorney General just took a few companies to task about policies like this and they ended up paying hefty fines
