    Pros

    Great pay if you work hard and plenty of extra incentives for motivation. A wide variety of products allow for greater opportunity to meet your clients needs. Management is concerned with creating a happy work environment and listens to feedback in regards to improvement. Several properties within the media group allow for employment change without losing your benefits. If you act like a professional adult, you are treated like a professional adult.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be slow with internal processes which can be frustrating, although that seems to be improving. Not many management opportunities for someone looking for possible advancement due to limited positions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Columbus Dispatch in August 2014.

    Interview

    Unprofessional. They will ask you if you're a subscriber - and if you're not, it's incredibly uncomfortable in the room. I was really turned off by the lack of communication on their part. I didn't know I did not get the position until I got a letter in the mail, about a month after my face to face interview. When I followed up with HR, my email was never returned.
