    I worked at GateHouse Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some really great people and brains in the newspaper industry. This company owns a few great properties filled with passion and drive.

    Cons

    Talent and loyalty is rarely recognized while layoff is always a possibility. Local properties are micromanaged and it's made clear, profit is top priority.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to make a difference in this industry, save your talent at all costs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GateHouse Media (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was very short and straight forward. They definitely up-sold the idea of working for the company and how much growth came with the opportunity. They have a tendency to make the position seem like it allows more creativity than it does. They claim to seek out creative, skilled designers, but it doesn't take either of those to handle a cookie-cutter method of design. Once a creative designer realizes this, the enthusiasm for work declines greatly.
