I have been working at Fodors as a contractor (More than 8 years)
Long deadlines, supportive editorial and production team, good compensation, reliable compensation.
Cutbacks to contract writers and editors in recession, without notice. Otherwise, wonderful!
Advice to Management
More communication and constructive feedback to contract employees will help us tweak our work to best match your expectations. Also, we're hungry for more work: Don't be afraid to ask, at the risk of overloading your in-house editors and correspondents.
I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fodors (Seattle, WA).
A thorough call from the project's Senior Editor, who had the original writer drop out. It was a dream project, and the interview was in-depth but I know my global travel, so I was offered the contract.
