    Pros

    People - used to get perks like tickets, but that ended. Nice office environment

    Cons

    When someone would leave, rather than hire a replacement, they would just redistribute the workload.

    Pros

    I worked in the summer time so they always had some type of events going on. The atmosphere was amazing and my learning environment was the best. It honestly was one of my better internships. Recording on the radio was also exciting to hear yourself. They really involved you and it was a great experience.

    Cons

    I didn't have any benefits but that comes along with an internship. The management could sometime be a little irritating at times. Driving to different promotion sites and traveling was sometimes difficult but overall a good company.

    Advice to Management

    None

  6. Promotions internship: Must love to talk to anyone and everyone, but good experience

    Pros

    Work with radio personalities, great staff and fellow interns, meet artists, concerts, and other events. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Long standing work hours for major events/concerts, occasionally lots of down time in office, no formal training about how to carry out duties (must learn on the go), sometimes coordinators and other supervisors play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Give some orientation training for interns (i.e. phone greetings because multiple radio stations' promotions are handled by one offce), keep the favoritism in check, and give more responsibility to those interns who ask and can handle more work to demonstrate abilities for potential hire after internship is completed/ or when they have graduated.

    Pros

    I remember decent benefits. I was in a satellite office so I didnt deal with management at all

    Cons

    Hard to get in touch with management at times because I worked at a station that was owned by another company. I did traffic.

    Pros

    Good to put on resume.

    Cons

    Not enough experience in field interested in.
    Part-timers horror stories made me think again about possibly applying for a position as a Promotions Assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Give a "shadow" day to interns to follow employees who do the jobs that they are interested in.

    Find another way to upload pictures of events to websites because it is scary and not exactly safe when part-timers and interns get back to the office late at night after an event and have to go upstairs and upload photos.
