    Pros

    The work is generally exciting, you are working on high-profile breaking news, the relatively shorthanded nature of staffing means that they can't afford to have people covering narrow niches. Most days the time zips by. Flacks, businesses, govt. agencies still want to talk to the AP, so that helps.

    Cons

    There is still a fair amount of drudgery at times, again in part cause of the short-handed nature of staffing; not everything you cover is high-profile. Also since it is not exactly a fast-growing company and many people stay for a long time, there isn't a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Skype interview with editors. Nothing unexpected. They are interested in knowing why an applicant is interested in a specific location. They also asked me about my skills and where I see my self in a few years.
