    Former Employee - Ad Assistant in Red Bluff, CA

    I worked at MediaNews part-time for more than 10 years


    I won many awards based on my level of experience. My peers were n excellent source of learning my craft.


    Lots of driving sometimes, 100 miles per day. Many accounts weren't disbursed very well to the right territories. My ad director had no experience in managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the right person the job of working with employees. Make sure they are not in conflict with the staff.
