Global Asian American Popular Cultures a book written Shilpa Davé, Leilani Nishime, and Tasha Oren about Asian American cultural productions as part of a complex conversation with American history, contemporary mainstream culture, and burgeoning digital technologies. Critics complain of disproportionate racial representation in Food Network programming. Tasha Oren argues that the overrepresentation of Asian-Americans in competition shows on the network, along with the lack of representation of Asian-Americans as hosts of programs, contributes to the "model minority" stereotype of Asian-Americans. However, Oren also offers the perspective that competition shows are viewed by network management as a low-risk entry point for hosts, especially those for whom a program may not be well received by audiences.
Current Employee - Production Assistant says"-Low pay -This is not a place to work if you're seeking grow. Management puts very little (if any) effort into career advancement and it's "normal" for people stay in the same position for 4+ years"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Horrible hours and distribution of work."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Cancellation policy sucks. When they book you in operations (post production) they put you on hold and many times they cancel you with only 12 hours notice and no compensation. There are times they have booked you (put on hold) for weeks and will cancel you for the week the day before you go in without any compensation. I have questioned this and you end up getting penalized by not getting booked"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Small budgets + lean teams."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Upper management can be very clique-ish which can hinder you, takes an extremely long time to move up and the company underpays"
FLDEE says"Why is Guy Fieri always on? He is my least favorite and he's on all the time. I would love to see more Giada, Ree, Bobby, Katie, Miss Brown, and Ina."
Arnie Popowich says"When I can go out for a smoke, go tinkle and fix a new drink, come back and still wait for commercials to be over is not good"
Chris Nordling says"The video experience is CRAP!!!! The videos drop, lose their place, and you end up watching ADS ALL NIGHT. I gave up."
Marsha Wiebeld says"I was a fan of Supermarket Stakeout. I dont like it at all since Alex is doing a segment. Her cooking piece runs the show. Let the contestants be the stars. Shouldn't be about Alex. I no longer watch the show. Thank you.."
Rosemary Latney says"I am concerned that Diners Drive -Ins and Dives is not a show that relates to the Black Consumer. First, I don't see any Black camera members working with Guy, Second, I watch a show where there seemed to be a slight racial undertone exhibited by Guy's son, Hunter."
Santhiya says"Good experience"
samson mulenga says"i love your site, and how its easy to view your landing page"
Linda GraebnerSmith says"I just want to state that at this season of the fall, October 11th, that turning on the food network and seeing only pumpkin carving contests of ghoul-focused challenges, becomes really trite and boring. Halloween is OK as a single focus of the season, but farm-to-table, harvest, season-end cooking and harvests around the world is far more interesting than the singular ridiculous focus on Halloween. How American! How mercenary and conventional. Boring, trite, ahem, superficial. Please, raise the bar of professionalism of the food network."
nana nanana says"This simply wasn’t what it used to be 15 years ago. It’s changed too much since then and has become somewhat like reality tv compared to the educationa value it used to have. Good Eats was awesome show."
