Not very secure unless you have friends in high places
highlights (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 10, 2017
It can be busy and that's fine. Working in sports is great. Not very diverse. The higher ups who decide the best paying shifts have been there for a while and have friends that get the best ones. Everyone else gets the scraps lefty over.
Mobile QA Analyst (Former Employee) – Playa Vista, CA – April 21, 2017
I worked there for one and half year.Great team that worked well together and liked each other enough to hang out outside of the office.It's sports, and it feels like a sports company.Lots of great people, relaxed fun work environment, free lunch, TVs everywhere
Lots of layoffs, lack of communication and no official training
Media Relations Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 12, 2017
This internship was a good intro into media relations. Typically, I would send out news clips to all of FOX Sports summating relevant current events. The NYC location was a small, tight knit space. The hardest part of the job was staying busy and finding important things to do after completing given tasks.

WRSU is perfect for anyone wanting a career in radio. It gives an opportunity to work with other students and learn more about the ins and outs of the radio industry, as well as making friends along the way.
Daily hire situation receiving schedule 1 week at a time, no benefits, unhealthy environment.
Digital Media Operator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 2, 2017
The pay is top tier, however, the culture is not very healthy due to receiving schedules 1 week at a time with the hours constantly changing, no benefits whatsoever, no guarantee of work from week to week, and no differentiating between the hard workers and the slackers.
Master Control Operator (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – March 15, 2016
They treated us like children and played with everyone's schedules. I went through something personal that caused me to have to have surgery and was told to come back within 3 days or they would use my vacation time as opposed to my sick time. Many people took leave of absences just to get a break from the company. Seniority meant nothing. They are right now offering people who have been there for a certain amount of years a buyout to leave the company and forgo receiving retirement, calling it a "new direction!." One day manager was a really good Manager, not sure how the prime time manager became a manager without ever being an operator. One manager is special because he's been there since it all started so they just allow him to stay on and manage whatever he can since he was really bad at messing up schedules. A typical day was coming in 30 minutes before a live event unless you were given mandatory overtime, in that case you could be walking right into a pod and taking over. I learned a lot about live events by speaking to AD's and producer's at sporting events. The job was very easy if you learn technical things easy, the hardest part of the job was dealing with revolving schedules between 7am-3am, management treating us like children and endless new policies that seemed to be made just to find ways to fire people. Right now the newest policy is to not clock in 1 minute late or earlier than 5 minutes early for your shift, also, you may not request 2 saturdays off in a row. HR is really good! Co-workers attitudes are bi-polar, tread lightly or they will go to HR aboutmore... something you may or may not have said or done in hopes of getting you fired.less
They feed you on the national holiday's you have to work on
You may or may not get a lunch or bathroom break if too many people call in, People call in a lot because they can't get vacation days approved, The pay is not great until you become level 3
