I worked at Creative Loafing Newspaper full-time (More than a year)
Perks such as concert tickets and pizza, etc as trade from local businesses advertising. Fun group of people and lots of room to try new things and experiment with formats. In general a great editor and editorial team.
The publisher was very difficult to work with and her hires on the sales team often had the same attitude — things must be done when and how they want them.
