Worked in CBS Television Stations Ad Sales. A pretty large work-load full of repetitive, time-consuming, detailed orders that require receiving, inputting/program coding for CBS Shows/Specials, and then billing/invoicing.
Entering orders is a time-consuming, mundane, repetitive task.
Sending Make-Good/Credits daily (or attempting to when you have time) to buyers when spots do not air at the correct time or at all is another repetitive, time-consuming task.
Sending over contracts to buyers and keeping the buyers/customers and station staff aware of all changes as they come in.
Interesting industry and not an awful job, especially for someone first out of school to learn a lot about the industry from an industry leader but the work itself is not all that exciting.
Sales Assistants do get drained and during busy times it is a lot of work to clear out.
Good Resume builder for out of school, weak salary for the amount of work and compared to others but they can get away with it.
Training Program is on a need basis and will only be held when there are enough possible trainees, runs about 6 months and your regular work is still expected done while training. Also sign a 5 yr contract upon completion and might not have total control on which CBS market you will be placed out of 14 National markets.
good resume builder with established industry leader, solid health benefits/stock shares.
work load, underappreciated, long hours occasionally, repetitiveness of work.
