I worked at Seattle Times full-time
The Times' local ownership is deeply committed to the mission of providing outstanding journalism. As an employee, I always felt valued and a part of something that mattered. There was a great work/life balance, fair compensation and lots of opportunity for growth. The company is filled with really smart and kind-hearted people. Many work at The Times for decades or leave only to return later. That says a lot.
If you choose to work at The Times, be ready for lots of changes. The newspaper industry is a tough one and only those who have the right skill sets, aptitude for change and willingness to consistently contribute at a high level will succeed.
Advice to Management
Proudly and consistently remind the community of the relevance of high-qualify, timely and accurate journalism.
I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Times (Seattle, WA) in January 2016.
Not a traditional interview process. I met for coffee with the section editor we were able to just chat freely. We discussed my experience and goals, but we also delved into other topics, such as television and feminism.
