    I have been working at Bay Area News Group full-time


    On a good day, this is a top-notch organization that works to produce news of interest and value.


    Resources are spread thin and so employees are overworked, underpaid and not always able to do the investigative work that the public needs and that's rewarding to a journalist's career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the smaller newspapers in the chain as bureaus and not as second cousins. Work to create a more holistic and bigger vision for the entire network of newspapers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Bay Area News Group.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume in online job opening system. was contacted my HR person who conducted an initial phone interview. Was contacted by email about a week later and had in person interview set up with my eventual direct manager. I was invited back to do a mock sales meeting later that week. I was officially offered the job about 3 weeks after the initial contact.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to go through a mock sales call. i was given a sheet to read with details on a client and then asked to role play a call with a training manager.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    very short. I was just out of college and had little leverage. That combined with the fact that it was a newspaper gave little to no room to negotiate a decent salary.
