    I have been working at The Roanoke Times full-time (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.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Roanoke Times.

    Interview Details

    You will phone interview with HR and then proceed to face-to-face interviews with managers. This process may take several sessions and may take several weeks to complete. Once you have passed all of the phases of the hiring process, if you are offered the position, you will then be required to take a pre-employment drug test. You offer will be contingent on passing the drug test and the required background check.
