    I have been working at Richmond Times-Dispatch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On-Boarding process was a breeze, I was able to start immediately and hit the ground running. Kevena was great at answering any and all questions as soon as they were asked, and was very friendly during the interview process. It made me feel more relaxed at each interview, as if she had everything taken care of. Working Downtown in an industry that moves so quickly, it is great having a strong HR department just one floor above me!

    Cons

    The online training process takes awhile, but is worth it in the end.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Richmond Times-Dispatch (Lexington, VA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume, a cover letter and a contact from a previous job for a recommendation. The business editor travelled to me to conduct the interview and he was very professional and nice. The interview felt important but not overly nerve wracking. I wish I could have accepted the offer and I hope to work at Richmond TD at some point in the future.
