    I have been working at The San Francisco Chronicle part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great location, good name recognition, solid resume builder.

    Cons

    The Chronicle is past its prime and having trouble figuring out where it belongs in the new media landscape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and go with it! Either turn into a 100% click-bait publication like the Mirror or stick with the hard news. If you want to do both, then split the company in a more visible way. The differences between the Gate and the Chron aren't apparent to much of the public and it's wrecking the brand.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The San Francisco Chronicle.

    Interview Details

    Very easy. I came in a referral and was offered a job at the interview. I was informed of the expectations and was surprised that the vast majority of sales reps worked a a 7.5 hour work day. Almost no one worked late. That has changed since I was initially hired.

    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated additional vacation. There is little wiggle room as the sales team is unionized. Offer was based upon years of experience.
