    I worked at MediaNews part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I won many awards based on my level of experience. My peers were n excellent source of learning my craft.

    Cons

    Lots of driving sometimes, 100 miles per day. Many accounts weren't disbursed very well to the right territories. My ad director had no experience in managing.

    Advice to Management

    Give the right person the job of working with employees. Make sure they are not in conflict with the staff.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MediaNews.

    Interview

    I started as an intern for one of the group's small daily newspapers. After the front-desk person left, they asked if I wanted the position. In. Easy as cake. Intern!
