Pros: different job requirements. exciting. meeting celebrities, atheletes and musical artists.
Cons: inconsistent hours, often chaotic.
A typical day at Cumulus included driving station vehicles to event, setting up venue or broadcast site, engaging with listeners and packing up set up.
I learned how to interact efficiently and successfully with account representatives, listeners, jocks and venders. Additionally, I learned the value of flexibility in a fast paced work environment. Management at Cumulus Media was a joy to work with, as most were on air personalities. My direct supervisors were adamant about creating a fun work environment that was both professionally and productive.
The most difficult part of this job were the inconsistent hours. This job is event based so each work day was subject to change on a whim. The most enjoyable part of this job was working concerts, festivals, and sporting events. The job was consistently new and exciting and as Promotion Assistants we often met celebrities, music artists and famous athletes.
