ON THE CASE!
UPDATE: We're still learning who does what and where within MTVN/ Viacom. Until 2 weeks ago, we never put much thought to it at all. We just did our job and took our benefits for granted. Oh, how we yearn to return to that innocent time.
Hey, does anyone know how things work outside MTV Networks at VIACOM? For example, do free lancers/ permalancers at BET and CBS get benefits?
P.S. - What we STILL want to know is who told HR to shut off all their phones and put their 'out of office' replies on earlier this week? All the while, panicked freelancers were trying to get a hold of HR reps to get answers to simple, but important questions, like 'Where can we get our forms signed to sign up for the Freelancers Union?' and 'Are we really getting only $2,000 per year in hospital coverage?!?!'.
