    I have been working at TEGNA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nicest colleagues around. Great company benefits. A truly loving, caring culture. Cool location in downtown Dallas. Ample resources with other Tegna colleagues available and more than willing to help. Fun activities and celebrations. A station that cares about the community as well as its employees. Challenging, meaningful work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels as if there isn’t a true HR department, confusing to know where to go for what. Also, location does not have a cafeteria and limited food options nearby.

    Advice to Management

    Have a true onboarding/orientation process for new employees, done by Tegna.

    Advertising Sales Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Basic phone screen on Skype. I wore a suit and tie and the interviewer was in sweat pants looking down at the screen. The worst first interview ever. Although I was not a fit the position the interviewer was as if she was just out of college with no experience, no ability to connect or relate to people in general. Tegna is a great company but based on this experience I would never apply for another position. Very disappointed with the quality of the interviewer. The position was for a local station not national position. At the end of interviews about 50% of the time I will reapply for other jobs even if no fit for that position. For Tegna that is not even a consideration for me. Yes. It was that bad. She could not even define the products I would be selling or the geographical limits if the territory.
