Freelance Studio Camera Operator (Current Employee) – Secaucus, NJ – January 13, 2015
Not an easy place to get work. Scheduling has their "main" people as they informed me when I asked about why so few days on my schedule. Some of the crew is good to work with while others view you as a problem taking "their" shifts from them as if they are entitled to it all. It's a very competitive environment for sure. I don't recommend working here unless you can leap frog and get your way on the A list of freelancers since staff jobs don't exist here.
not enough work to go around as the freelance list has swelled
Arrive between 7-8 AM and write game notes for upcoming games (usually assigned 2-4 games a day). Packets containing notes for each game is usually released around 11 AM. Afternoons vary. If researching for a specific show, I will usually create boards for graphics department to air on the program. If not assigned a show, a little less busy. I will usually assist with creating story lines for each game and researching any more statistical information that the on-air talent or graphics department additionally request. The hardest part of the day is researching and writing game notes for each game. The most enjoyable part of the day is completing the research packet because a lot of work is accomplished in a short amount of time. The work environment is inviting and friendly but also very productive. We accomplish a lot of quality work on a daily basis.
friendly employees, large studios, team-oriented environment
Working for MLB Network was good and bad. The compensation was great, pay and benefits. The schedule was difficult at times if you are a family person. Management was difficult if you did not fit into their cliques. There is little or no chance for advancement and my co-workers were as many places some were very nice and helpful and some are not so easy to get along with. Overall my experience there was pretty good.
Human Resources Intern (Former Employee) – Secaucus, New Jersey – July 7, 2013
A typical day at work involved speaking with employees about any issues or questions they have about their personal benefits with the company. I learned the typical work day at MLB Network. I learned about how the Human Resources department is operated and the purpose of the department. My co-workers were beyond friendly. I was always assisted when needed with pleasure. I did not find a "hard part" at the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with employees and learning about what their responsibilities are and how they ended up at MLB Network.
