Pros: didn't have to take my work home with me!
I had the best boss while working at CBS. He was very thoughtful, very direct, rational, and looking to help you. I could count on him for anything. I was very grateful to work for him.
My days were different every day- based on what was going on. My mornings consisted of printing & examining daily reports, checking 'traffic' requests, and making sure the phones were being answered.
I also had to balance my role as Office Manager and my role as Sales Assistant. As much as a I appreciated being given more responsibility when I was hired for that position, I really enjoyed the sales hat more. I asked my bosses to give me more planning lessons and they did. I liked figuring out sales plans as if they were puzzles. So I worked as hard as I could to get more work in helping clients get their ads where they needed them. And that was the part of my job I loved the most.
The Sales Assistant/Office Manager position is the perfect way to start a career in broadcast and media sales.
