    I worked at The San Francisco Chronicle full-time (more than 10 years)


    Being on the cusp of breaking news. Staff diversity. Job security, up to a point. Located downtown. Monthly pizza days.


    Poor leadership. Manager with no background, experience and little knowledge of employee job duties or skill levels. Favors attractive women over more qualified staff. Union shop with no teeth. Mandatory overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and fairness. Keep staff in the loop.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at The San Francisco Chronicle in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR and asked to come on site for an interview. We confirmed a date over the phone, and she said she would send me an agenda for the interview. After 3 days, I had to follow up with her to check on the agenda, which she said she had forgotten about, and emailed over to me. The interview was fine, 6 people individually(one session had 2 people), and at the end of the interview I was shown out by the final interviewer, no final contact with HR. I followed up with them after a week, and again after two weeks, but never heard anything back. If you've taken the time to reach out to someone for an interview, respect them enough to at least tell them they did not get the job. Leaving people hanging is shoddy HR.

    Interview Questions
    • Not anything difficult, mostly around PM experience, a lot of giving context to the role as it was a newly created position.   Answer Question
