    I worked at The Sacramento Bee part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - My aunt was hired kind of on the spot, we shared the pay - Independent work, you weren't really watched but if a person says that you didn't give them their paper they will tell you

    Cons

    - early in the morning - you need your own car & gas - ok pay - If you don't have someone to cover you you're basically screwed -takes maybe 2 people to do the job: 1 to drive and 1 to throw the newspaper -have to be somewhat physically fit to get the job done in time

    Advice to Management

    - don't be drunk

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Sacramento Bee.

    Interview

    Job announcement was a perfect fit. Sent in an Application. HR called and asked one irrelevant question. I countered with a more relevant question. They hung up. As this wasn't really a "newspaper" job, but a technical support job, I can understand why their HR function would have had problems with it. But times have changed and these support positions are becoming more and more critical to a paper's survival. This interview was some time ago, but I have not as yet heard anything to indicate the organization has changed. I wish them good luck, I really like a good newspaper and they seem to be drifting more and more in other directions.

    Interview Questions

    • Hundreds of relevant questions they could have asked and yet did not. Impression was that they had NO idea on how to conduct and interview for a technical position. (Not uncommon in Sacramento.)   1 Answer
