    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Sacramento Bee in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was a casual interview. The editors are professional but easy to talk to. Dress is casual except when interviewing politicians and business people for stories. The culture is respectful, kind, high expectations, focussed on trying new things, but vetting all ideas through committees of the top editors. Mavericks don't get very far. Lots of meetings that seem to go on for an hour no matter what the agenda. Merit reviews annually, but not a lot of time for feedback otherwise, especially for veteran employees. The union negotiated away its right to strike sometime in the '70s in order to keep the 37.5-hour work week and a higher percentage raise. This made it much harder to get the rank and file to join the union.
