OK part-time job

Distribution Center Coordinator (Current Employee)

ProsThe pay is not bad. The hours are late at night and early in the morning. This is a great part-time job for folks who have full-time jobs during the day, because the schedule does not conflict with most other jobs. The work can be somewhat physical, but does not require a lot of physical strength. Compared to the pay of most part-time jobs with similar responsiblities and job functions, this one pays well. The biggest reason for this is probably due to the schedule which is typically between 11 pm and 6 am. All that is require to do this job is to be able to work in early morning hours and to have some basic organizational skills, people skills and some limited computer skills.

ConsNewspapers everywhere are struggling and a h belo is no exception. The opportunity for advancement is somewhat limited, but what can you expect from a Newspaper. The company had a voluntary severance plan that reduced the full-time employees by about 500. So it is easy to understand why moving up is somewhat limited. It is sometimes difficult to maintain a full-time job and this job. It is not easy to get up in the middle of the night to go to work, especially after having worked a full eight hours somewhere else. One should take this job with the expectation that this will be decent part-time job with decent pay, not with the expectation that you will be promoted into management.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe DC's are somewhat understaffed with all the changes that have taken place. If you have more layoffs be careful about cutting back staff in the DC's. The staff is already probably not enough to handle the workload.

    Hard times in the newspaper industry

    I worked at A. H. Belo


    Pros: The company pays very well for a nice combination of work life balance. They truly do want people to have time outside of work… Cons: There is a very strong "A team" mentality. You'll see the same people in meetings all the time, talking about the same things. … Advice to Senior Management: Encourage constructive criticism. The best ideas are tested in fire, not by sycophants. Realistic expectations… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
