    I have been working at The Roanoke Times full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A thriving company irregardless of the newspaper industry as a whole. Strong brand and regional readership. Company provides excellent benefits and a nice work/life balance.

    Cons

    More corporate mandates with new owners than with previous owner, Landmark Communications - less autonomy. No raises or cost of living adjustments in 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should thaw out the pay freeze to encourage employee retention.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at The Roanoke Times.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with an initial phone screening with the HR rep who hires for the advertising/accounts group. The 2nd interview was about an hour with HR asking more "tell me about a time when...." or "here's the scenario...what would you do or how would you handle that?" type of questions.

    Interview Questions
    • A room full of boxes and files was found that may contain important account information. You and the accounts team are tasked with sorting through the information. How would you go about handling your 10 boxes? (paraphrasing here but something kind of awkward like that)   Answer Question
