Highly stressful environment
Production Coordinator (Former Employee), New York City and VancouverDecember 6, 2012
Pros: working together for a common goal
Cons: long hours; extend time between jobs
This job listing is a combination of working in independent film industry. I worked in New York City and Vancouver over a 15 year period. Typically working in film and television are 14-16 hour days with constant work in an extremely stressful environment.

Working in the production office you must deal with all types of of situations and be able to improvise many solutions.
Typically my co-workers were great people. Since we worked extremely long days we usually succeeded in making the days spent in the office pleasant.

News Producer (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJanuary 19, 2015
Pros: great people
Cons: harsh, cut throat working environment, not much advancement
Channel was a great place to work, and every employee was enthusiastic and loved their job.
There is room for advancement but you have to start from the bottom, most low paying grunt job and get recognized for your talent. Then and only then will you be given more responsibility for little to no more pay or compensation.
The job I did was overnight with low pay and little to no recognition or reward. After one year of this, I realized I was not being given more opportunities for advancement. The company is good to work for and the people are great but the work is cutthroat and harsh.

Fun and lively place to work
Chef (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 18, 2015
It was a fun place to work at on a day to day basis. It felt like you were working and still enjoying being at a theme park. It was also great to see all of the different cultures and ethnicities from around the world come to a place and see the things we see. They're excitement for the smallest things such as a squirrel was payment enough.

Advanced (Former Employee), Ft. Douglas, SLCity, Utah. USADecember 28, 2014
Pros: free lunches and beer, govt benefits for active and retired
Cons: fixing the ;mistakes and errors of others
Personnel accountability. Product and equipment readiness, the MOS (the job one does) is functional, the expectation of leadership meetings on a daily basis.
This then is the active ingredient in the learning of leadership qualities: accountability for failed errands and missions, the approximation of corrective solutions to adverse situations and the right to dispense authority to junior rank. Accountability stays with me at all times. Co workers must work alone as no mission requires that a Marine, a Soldier shall work alone., the competitiveness for advancement is replete within the structure functional of the US Military.
The hardest part is writing letters to families whose loved ones have deceased.

The sightseeing, the travel, the pay, the eating anywhere in the world

Team Captain (Current Employee), Orlando, FLDecember 11, 2014
Pros: access to various parks, discounts at many locations
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work varies from opening to closing but for the most part it consists of managing a staff of around 15-20 people to ensure they are delivering great guest service and staying on top of their daily tasks. Also to audit register drawers for any variances and being responsible for a substantial amount of money. I learned how to communicate effectively amongst the team and acquire leadership skills that are beneficial to developing a strong team. My co-workers are a very lively bunch that work together to accomplish the "bigger picture," which is executing admirable guest service. The hardest part of the job is making everyone happy. It becomes challenging to please all parties in a difficult situation. For instance, when a guest complaint arises and it is your duty to fix it. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make someone's day. It can be as simple as a acknowledgment to offering recognition buttons for birthdays and celebrations.
