I have been working at The Oregonian full-time (More than a year)
Fun, energetic people passionate about working for a regional media org.
They try really hard to be a "digital agency" but the culture is far behind.
Advice to Management
Loosen up! A lot of great talent has left because they are unhappy with the stiff culture.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Oregonian (Portland, OR) in August 2015.
It was a quick one. More of just come in and try it for a night type of interview. You go in. They set you up with a route, put inserts into the paper, bag them, and then head out with an abbreviated route so you can get the feel of it. The next day you do the same thing. Depending on how you did your first night they give you more papers to deliver.
