    Pros

    It's the only game in town. That is, it's by far the largest media outlet in the state. The pay is good -- if you get a good deal coming in the door. Start at a good level and you can advance.

    Cons

    Pitifully small annual raises, if you even get one. Health insurance premiums are high and increase every year, and for longtime employees, the old defined-benefits pension plan has been frozen. New hires are not enrolled in the pension plan at all, but the 401-K match has been increased for all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The News Journal (Wilmington, DE).

    Interview

    Interviewed with peers, direct manager, and senior manager. Some general technical questions were followed by questions on work ethic, career goals, and attitude.

    Interview Questions

    • Perhaps a few technical questions that may be perceived as too specific   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very typical salary negotiation with little consideration for other forms of compensation
