    I worked at Nine9 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was really cool being a part of such a warm welcoming place. I started off as a talent and starting working open calls to boost my confidence as a new face to the industry and it helped. Later I moved to NY and worked at the Nine9 office in NYC! Got some more gigs and decided since I was getting more and more it was time to give it my all. I've worked with some great people.

    Cons

    I can't think of any besides maybe snow days?

    I worked at Nine9 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I used to work for them for about 10 months. I moved because I was too far from the office so I had to leave. But they actually did a lot of really good stuff. It all honestly depends on how you look. Obviously the better looking you are the more opportunities you will get. They are not in agency at all. They are a casting company and just like any company they charge for their services. They held auditions and workshops on a weekly basis in the office and I got calls every now and then with people thanking us for getting that auditions.

    Cons

    The people that came in are ridiculous sometimes. They are all really confused about an agency and a casting company. I never really understood people that were 5'5 and expect to be signed with an agency and get everything done for free. If you are not 5'10 than do not expect anything to be handed to you in this industry.

    The pay is minimum wage but it's a good start especially if you want to be in this industry.

    The hours are long and you have to be open to working on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Get your staff in on the loop of what's going on instead of just telling us the changes.

    I have been working at Nine9 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the environment, especially with me having the DJing duties. I make it feel like a day time club, and it makes the work environment feel a lot more fun.

    Love my coworkers, we all get along and respect one another. We have a lot of fun just messing around talking about everything/ anything.

    Dress code, if you're into fashion. This is the place for you.

    Job being flexible

    Meeting new people

    Room to grow quickly

    It isn't a scam, I can understand why people may think that but it isn't.

    Someone like me for example, I go the extra mile with my talents. I write down everyone I sign, I check up on them through customer service/ light box.

    I see the amount of auditions some people get requested for. Some even for a $2000 voice over commercial for a jewelry commercial (most recent I can think of, along with the Mr. Clean new face commercial which was 20k)

    Just need to be realistic, of course the attractive people will get more than the other. It's just the way it is unfortunately. I send a list of monologues to my people when they need it. They contact and reach out to me via email on weekends. They have a personal go-to person at all times for whenever they need help or have questions.

    Cons

    The hours.

    The hours can be overwhelming at times. Can be draining.

    Sometimes 9+ hours, but this is just the NY office with having to deal with two open calls a day sometimes.

    Sometimes working on Saturday's (kind of sort of)

    Meeting new people...this can be a PRO and CON. Some people come in with attitudes, just need to know how to deal with them.

    Working on holidays if the building management were to allow it.

    Would be better if pay was hourly + commission.

    I have been working at Nine9 full-time

    Pros

    Nine9 is a fun company! Everyday is a new adventure. I have been here several years and I have say there is never a dull moment! The corporate office listens to input from all office to make a cohesive, and inviting environment to all employees. The corporate office has really worked with my schedule in regards to family emergencies and that is why I have continued to stay here for several years.

    Cons

    The only downside is working on some holidays. Obviously though, with this industry, you need to work on certain holidays, but it would be a nice incentive to have those days off.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to create stronger team building exercises. I know it can be difficult considering the amount of employees spread out over numerous offices, but it would be a fun idea.

    I enjoy working here at nine9. I was hired to work in the call center and a month later was promoted to the UST division. I love what I do, the team has been extremely helpful. Nine9 has a family feel to it. I would recommend nine9 to anyone. It is truly one of the best places I have ever worked at.

    There's no cons about nine9!
