Pros: free lunches, have met and interacted with nbc sports on-air personalities.
Cons: long days with a flat-rate pay
A typical day has me working hockey games that will be broadcasted on NBC sports. The games I work are located in Boston at the TD Garden. I typically help the crew set up for the nights broadcast by running lines, helping build cameras, installing sound mics on the ice, and other related duties.
Management and my co-workers are great. They are all friendly and willing to help me progress towards my career goals. They are easy to talk to and work with and make the long days fun.
The hardest part of the job is not having the knowledge that others have.
Seeing how a televised sports event is broadcasted is an amazing learning experience and that, along with working with on-air broadcasters is the best part of the job.
Having them refer to me by name is a great morale boost and something that makes me want to do even more to advance at NBC.
