Project Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 14, 2016
Had the time of my life working with BET. Meeting people from all fields of media was a dream come true. Just having dead time between shoots was one of the moments where you could really get off track but nothing coffee want solve.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – DC - District of Columbia, DC – May 24, 2016
A typical work day would include showing up to the squad room and getting assigned two positions for the evening. I have learned to expect the unexpected because things can change in a second. I have excellent supervisors and co- workers in this company. The best part of the job is being able to make sure everyone feels safe. I enjoy when talent needs an escort you find out some of your biggest idles or ordinary people.

Head Wardrobe Assistant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 9, 2016
Working at the studio was thrill everyday. From running back and forth to the malls to meeting with designers and manufactures, there was never a dull moment. Working with 80+ coworkers on a project really helped me learn how to approach people and situations of all types. With such a big company, each department had their own manager. I had the privilege of making my manager, my mentor. Everyone one set had something unique about them. you could learn something new from anyone in the building. People were friendly and welcomed others like family. The hardest part for working of this job would be the traffic. I had to learn to leave earlier than normal and to take backroads to make it somewhere at the appropriate time. Other than Atlanta traffic, I enjoyed everything about this job.
Free buffet lunch. Free family tickets to production.
Amazing people great experiences and adventures working here

Helpdesk Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 3, 2015
BET is an awesome place to work. Prior to being bought out by Viacom, the atmosphere was nice, manager was great and Debra Lee made sure each and every employee felt appreciated. Things change a lot once Viacom took over. Lack of communication, poor management and the environment was begun to get hostile. Overall, pay is great and the perks are even better.
Quality Control Technician/ Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 3, 2015
Working at BET was a dream come true at one point. The pay was amazing 36k a year, and for me at that time was great. We were paid weekly and had a set schedule of 9-7. It had benefits, vacation days and every holiday we were off. There were not tough parts about work. As a Quality Control Technician I had to be detailed oriented watching all the outgoing material catching mispelled words or any flaws in the video. Co-workers were fun to work with, dress code was casual and opportunities to grow in the company were always given.
Intern (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 27, 2015
I did and internship with BET networks and I loved it! My typical day at this internship was that I trained with supervisor to familiarize tasks. Engaged in business meetings. Data entry tasks. Assisted talent when working on a production. Collaborated with others for achievement.
Overall, BET Networks was a great ambassadorship and wonderful opportunity.
"BET What's At Stake" Ambassador (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 24, 2015
I enjoyed doing an ambassadorship with BET Networks because it was able to be a stepping stone for me in advancing in my career. I learned so much by working with people of multiple age groups to get a message to the youth. I had fun, learned how to use my voice, and met great people and made lots of connections! Thank you!
Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 16, 2015
My time at BET was challenging but good for my growth. A typical day consisted of processing invoices, processing travel expense reports, and providing excel reports to manager. I learned some of the differences between the purchasing and travel departments at BET and that was a good opportunity to see work from a different perspective. Management was supportive and gave what was needed to be effective at work, Co-workers were good people who were willing to help. The hardest part of the job was how fast job functions would change, but that was also the most enjoyable part because it taught me not to get comfortable and to always increase my skill.
