    Former Employee - Promotions Intern in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel

    Pros

    I worked in the summer time so they always had some type of events going on. The atmosphere was amazing and my learning environment was the best. It honestly was one of my better internships. Recording on the radio was also exciting to hear yourself. They really involved you and it was a great experience.

    Cons

    I didn't have any benefits but that comes along with an internship. The management could sometime be a little irritating at times. Driving to different promotion sites and traveling was sometimes difficult but overall a good company.

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work with radio personalities, great staff and fellow interns, meet artists, concerts, and other events. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Long standing work hours for major events/concerts, occasionally lots of down time in office, no formal training about how to carry out duties (must learn on the go), sometimes coordinators and other supervisors play favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some orientation training for interns (i.e. phone greetings because multiple radio stations' promotions are handled by one offce), keep the favoritism in check, and give more responsibility to those interns who ask and can handle more work to demonstrate abilities for potential hire after internship is completed/ or when they have graduated.

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good to put on resume.

    Cons

    Not enough experience in field interested in.
    Part-timers horror stories made me think again about possibly applying for a position as a Promotions Assistant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a "shadow" day to interns to follow employees who do the jobs that they are interested in.

    Find another way to upload pictures of events to websites because it is scary and not exactly safe when part-timers and interns get back to the office late at night after an event and have to go upstairs and upload photos.

    I have been working at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to meet celebrities, gain valuable experience, make connections, and learn from those who are already where I would like to be.

    Cons

    A lot of the jobs have been cut into one person doing several different things. Also, more radio programs have become more automated making it less interesting to listen to and shutting out jobs for those who would like to apply as on-air personalities. Those jobs are rarely open. Also, some positions are high turnover positions, and they are always cutting budgets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If this company doesn't want to lose so much money, maybe they should invest in a Urban contemporary Christian Radio Station. There are so many young adults and teens who enjoy gospel hip-hop and rhythm & Praise gospel music, but this market is ignored almost altogether by this company. While all of the other media mediums have gotten the hint that Christian media is what's hot right now and bringing in the most viewership thus making the most money. They are losing out on too much advertising dollars and will continue to cut budgets. I interned in Chicago, IL.

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment..Many learning and hands-on opportunities..The option to move around departments...Constant feedback and help..Overall good experience. I have interned at other radio companies and compared to them, I got the most out of Clear Channel. It was on par with Sirius XM's program.

    Cons

    None. I wish I was hired at the end of my internship.
