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 in-person. I interviewed at Seattle Times (Seattle, WA).
Pretty generic. There were lots of hypothetical scenarios that were in the form of questions. I interviewed with one manager who gave me one of the most ridiculous scenarios. She didn't like the answer I gave but kept on poking until she got the answer she wanted.
