    I have been working at Tribune Company full-time (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.

    Interview Details

    They'll have you take a writing test (turn 5 press releases into 20 second news stories in 30 minutes), then will ask you what you want to do. If you have a focus or interest, speak out. There's a good chance you'll be able to learn a lot up front (broadcast/web producing, assignment desk) etc. So don't hesitate to speak up.

    • "Will you be ready to produce a full hour of news soon." Be honest. I wasn't ready, I said I wasn't. It worked out.   Answer Question
