I have been working at Milwaukee Journal Sentinel full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Experience in dealing with multiple management/operations issues. Great opportunity to assemble a management philosophy in a ever-changing environment. Good experience with managing budgets, human resource functions, and operations.

Cons

Leadership provides no support and does little to understand subordinates' jobs or responsibilities. Expectation of being on call 24/7. Mounting responsibilities with very little appreciation and/or monetary increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees more and do not go after them after they are respectfully critical about the manner in which operations are running.

    If you need the money it's OK but it is not a career

    Pros

    It is a great second job for people looking to earn some extra money. Most of your work hours will fall between 2am and 6 or 7am.

    Cons

    You can not always count on being done by 7am. If papers are late you will have to wait and you are still expected to do your route even if it causes problems with your primary job. You work seven days a week and are expected to find your own replacement if you need time off. You will never see a raise and in over 10 years I have seen 3 paycuts. By the time you caculate your expences you can expect to earn about $8 or $9 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In most cases management is understanding to family situations. Most managers realise that this is a second job, however if you would like to retain quaility employees you might want to consider a reduction in upper management vs. constant reductions in the pay of your delivery force
