Reporter (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – July 16, 2018
I learned a lot while working at a Gray Television Station. It taught me how to thrive under deadlines and gave me the tools to think on my feet if ever a problem should arise. I really enjoyed working in the Sports Department and being able to travel to different events. However, it got to a point where I was working seven days a week and was completely burned out by year 3. If you really love the job then this is the place for you. If you're one foot in and one foot out, I don't think this would be a job for you.

due to the team synergy here, we typically get things done rather quickly and efficiently. This leads to a lot of opportunities to learn new things and get to know more about the various aspects of the business so long as you're willing to work with everybody.
Technical Media Producer (Former Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – September 20, 2017
I was treated like garbage by management and several coworkers. Had brought several issues to attention and never saw any results. I was expected to do the jobs of several people while others in my same position would do nothing. Basically this job is not worth the pathetic 11 bucks an hour that you'd be getting.
Associate Vice President, Human Resources (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 21, 2017
Love this company! There's always something new to learn and lots of opportunity for growth. Leadership's very open about new developments and schedules are flexible for new parents. One of the best jobs I've ever had!

I enjoy almost everyone I work with at Gray. The people are friendly and most are passionate about what they do. The pay is unsatisfactory unless you are a member of management. Corporate has cut about 20 jobs at our station and the station is suffering for it. However, I believe most of the people come into work with a positive attitude and work hard to produce a good product. It is a great introduction to the world of television, and for market 186, it feels like a bigger station.
Nice people; free lunch once a month; benefits (although rates are quite high).
low pay; so few people work there that any bad apples REALLY stand out.
Anchor/Reporter (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – June 23, 2017
Some of this company, especially the particular stations where I worked, is poorly managed. The stations in Nebraska, with the exception of Omaha, are terrible places to work. Most of the managers have terrible quality control, are in over their heads, and are not focused on the product and their staff. News staff schedules change constantly and without notice. If you enjoy never having the same schedule, same days off each week, being surrounded by managers that pretend they know what they're talking about, but in reality are making horrible decisions that make no sense, then this is the place for you. By combining operations partly with four stations that are connected to the Lincoln office, you have major deconstruction in communication, accuracy, and quality. It isn't working, but they have a lot of money in it, so this is the norm: lots of people who have no idea what they're doing.
None. No paid lunches, no holiday parties, no staff appreciation, no wellness program
Hourly staff are forced to lie on their timecards so that they don't get overtime.

Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee) – Harrisonburg, VA – August 13, 2015
WHSV is a wonderful place to work. From the moment that you start your job here, they make you feel completely at home. This is a very high paced atmosphere though. There will be time for play occasionally but it is also very important that you work is done properly and within a timely manor.
Fixed Asset Accountant (Current Employee) – Albany, GA – July 19, 2015
Gray is a great company to work for. Excellent benefits package. A typical day is fast paced and deadline oriented. No micro-managing was required because you knew what was expected of you each day. Gray is a publicly traded company and therefore it is necessary for us work as a team in order to meet the filing deadlines.
