    I have been working at Lee Enterprises part-time (less than an year)


    Strong training helps you learn the ropes Helpful supervisors are there if you need any questions answered. Any information about the multiple newspapers is available on the computer, so memorizing isn't a requirement. You can always look up what you need to know. Most employees have been there several years (one for 40!)


    Customers can be very rude and demanding. Hours can be long, and you have to stare at two computer screens your entire shift. It can be uncomfortable after a few hours - like any desk job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! I've felt comfortable since I started, and I believe the networking and communication here is very clear and concise.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lee Enterprises.

    Interview Details

    The process was very long. After applying online, it took a month to receive any notification. From there, things sped up a bit, but at least a total month more to get to the offer stage. First a phone interview with HR (~45min), then a phone interview with the Editor (~45 min). Finally a face-to-face. Standard questions asked with nothing too technical or cumbersome.
