    I have been working at Tribune Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working at the Trib for about 3 years now and I must say I was pretty excited about joining the company, the culture is pretty good, very relax environment, a huge perk is being able to Work from Home, pretty handy when you have small children. Pay is relatively good. The people I work with are pretty knowledgable, environment is good and it offers great challenges in a good way. People are very willing to share what they know with you so that is always good.

    Cons

    Poorly staffed, thus long working hours, working for a company in the advertising business requieres a lot of changes because there are always new ways to sell. Very hard to move up or get promoted, you must fight to get a promotion, because it is very unstable people are leaving and their positions never get back filled.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Tribune Company.

    Interview Details

    It is a lengthily process, event though they needed someone ASAP it took a good 3 weeks from start to end. Questions range from beginners to Advanced level- Technical questions, they don't try to trick you just find out what level you are. First interview was a phone interview with manager and a few of their senior staff, second was with another senior staff and last and final was on site with members of other teams
