At GSTV - we work hard and play hard. There are so many opportunities for growth and development for those willing to go the extra mile. Joining the GSTV team was the best career decision I've made to date.
Summer barbecues and team-building events on the lake are just some of the fun ways we grow together as a team, making our day-to-day interaction and communication stronger, more authentic and productive.
At my interview I was told 'Here everyone takes out the trash', which I have grown to appreciate and understand. There are no hierarchy divisions in our organization; we work right along side the chief officers and executives. We work as a team to create the strongest media company out there.
GSTV is a fantastic place to work, and every day I feel like I am in charge of my own success. Being in sales, I have the automony to cover my territory as I see fit and have the best support team beside me. This amazing support structure helps free up my time to cover more territory, which generates more revenue, something that any entrepreneur understands is the fuel that drives the engine of a successful company!
