    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

    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.

    Pros

    Pretty good place to work with a lot of perks such as concert tickets at area venues. Also, exciting to be in the music industry.

    Cons

    politics, in a word. Like any large corporation, everyone is trying to climb the ladder of success so you sometimes their efforts to do so will be on the backs of others.
