A declining industry

As people watch less traditional tv, the job becomes tougher. Make sure you have an account base that pays well as it will decline some each year and you’ll need to sell more to replace those loses.

First job after college

It was a great first job after college but there weren't many opportunities for growth and the pay was low. It could get pretty boring doing the same thing every day.

Good company with great benefits.

Worked in Charlotte before it was sold to Nexstar. No work life balance always understaffed. There was a period where production could often work 26 days in a row without a day off due to staffing. Some of the coworkers were super cool and I made a lot of friendships. Management in most departments was underhanded and highly incompetent and got fired and sent away from their previous stations. I only went as high as 3 stars because most of the staff were really cool young in our careers and we would all stick together and help each other. FOX was smart enough to sell this station off


Great Benefits


Management plays favorites and you will only advance if you're willing to kiss up to them

Horrible culture

Horrible place to work, especially for a woman and person of color. They were condescending, HR completely no help. My manager was evil with bad intentions. I warned HR about him, they dismissed me and my manager is forced to resign 2 weeks later.

Great place to intern

I learned a lot while interning at fox. One thing I really liked was that I wasn't stuck in just one department, I was allowed to help in other departments or shadow someone if I was really interested in their job.

Good culture, great people. I work on various shows and I like and respect my bosses. I believe it all depends on which department you work in and who you work for.

Expect to work hard

Locally the teams at the individual TV stations are cohesive and feel like family. Corporate culture can be bureaucratic. There are good people everywhere. Pay is competitive. Benefits are awesome. If you work hard and take on new responsibilities you will get promoted.

Best Job I've Ever Had

I came from a much smaller market where I worked many jobs for many other TV stations. This station and its corporate culture is a blessing in my life. I have never been treated so well as an employee. My co-workers are self-motivated and friendly. My managers clearly define expectations, priorities and always make time to listen. I am compensated well and learn something new everyday. Fox Television Stations make me feel as if "I made it" in my career. I would recommend working at this station, WFLD, to anyone in the tv broadcast business.

Go Elsewhere

Worked at the Denver O&O for 4+ years. Inept, micromanaging GM. Pompous, dictatorial ND not interested in cooperation with other departments - loathed Engineering, and wasn't afraid to admit it. As a result, all news personnel actively degraded other departments without cause, and felt they were entitled by their management to behave that way. There was no sense of "team". A very dysfunctional organization. I can only imagine this atmosphere/behavior permeated the entire company from the top down. Stay far away if you value your professionalism.

Not a bad place to work, after the reorganization.

Prior to the reorganization, IT reported to Finance -- consequently, unqualified Finance managers were making decisions on technologies that they did not comprehend. This resulted in the IT infrastructure being woefully behind in terms of implementing the efficiencies of newer technologies. Overall, the managerial mindset was that IT did not generate revenue and was therefore not worthy of investment or improvement. Working form home is discouraged unless there is a crisis at 3:00AM, in which case, they will call you and expect you to solve the problem and still be in the office at 8:30AM that same morning.


incredibly smart and dedicated coworkers


Management mindset is mired in the 1960's

Not a place for adults

I wanted to love working here. The maturity level of the coworkers and management in all departments is very low. If you don’t mind lots of favoritism, hierarchy and bad behavior this is the place for you. Pay and hours were okay. If you think good job performance and a courteous nature will be enough, think again. This place is a joke and not suitable for reasonable, hardworking adults.

Great benefits but poor work conditions

They try to accomplish too much with too few resources. Employees are not empowered to make decisions without corporate approval. Excellent benefits package.

The work-life balancei s poor. When I worked here there were often staff cuts which means more work load for everyone else. You are often required to work as the news works so when it snows, you are expected to make it in to work

This company blew me away. I though I was going to be forgotten as soon as I pulled up but they welcomed me as family. I knew I was home when I first started working and everyone was happy but focused.

Not a good place to work at, if you are not entry level

They are not looking for entry level employee. But the salary is even lower than entry level in NBC. The culture is too cooperate. They listed this job as 40hr a week, 8 hr a day. But they force you to have an hour break every day. You have to "take it", because that's required by the company. So actually you are staying at work 9 hr a day.


This job is good for entry level. But they are looking for experienced


Pretty much everything

lack of job culture

Fox has great career opportunities and room to advance, but they do not involve assistants in any aspect, i.e. meeting, and any way to learn about the company which makes it hard to employees to want to advance.


quiet envirnment


needs to have entry level employees more involved

Great starting and end point to work!

I love what I do but because of my place of residence it takes a toll on me. I love my co-workers because we work as a family and help one another. There can be room for advancement depending on the department you work in and your education status.

Interns be mindful

I just finished an internship there recently and I can say that I have mixed feelings about this place. First of all let me start by saying that I really do appreciate the opportunity to intern at FOX 29, but I wasn't too fond of the employees. Some employees were friendly and some other employees treated interns like we were useless by giving attitudes and yelling at us at times. I don't know if it was because we were interns and were stereotyped or they had nasty personalities in general. I also felt like that interns weren't really appreciated in all departments and they showed it. Too much favoritism you will find here also absolutely. If you not kissing up to someone, then your considered useless and weak. Also a lot of drama with the interns and competition. As for me I would just try to stay focussed on my work. I'm not saying it was a bad place to work, but I'm saying don't expect it to be paradise here because it's far from it.


Location, free lunches at times, good resume builder


Unfriendly employees, competitive, favoritism

Company does not value its employees

It doesn't matter how hard you work you and the employee that does nothing are viewed the same and given the same 2% increase. Unless you are upper management, you are treated as a nobody. Absolutely no room for growth.


Good benefits


No advancement and low pay
