Pros

The pay is not bad. The hours are late at night and early in the morning. This is a great part-time job for folks who have full-time jobs during the day, because the schedule does not conflict with most other jobs. The work can be somewhat physical, but does not require a lot of physical strength. Compared to the pay of most part-time jobs with similar responsiblities and job functions, this one pays well. The biggest reason for this is probably due to the schedule which is typically between 11 pm and 6 am. All that is require to do this job is to be able to work in early morning hours and to have some basic organizational skills, people skills and some limited computer skills.

Cons

Newspapers everywhere are struggling and a h belo is no exception. The opportunity for advancement is somewhat limited, but what can you expect from a Newspaper. The company had a voluntary severance plan that reduced the full-time employees by about 500. So it is easy to understand why moving up is somewhat limited. It is sometimes difficult to maintain a full-time job and this job. It is not easy to get up in the middle of the night to go to work, especially after having worked a full eight hours somewhere else. One should take this job with the expectation that this will be decent part-time job with decent pay, not with the expectation that you will be promoted into management.

Advice to Management

The DC's are somewhat understaffed with all the changes that have taken place. If you have more layoffs be careful about cutting back staff in the DC's. The staff is already probably not enough to handle the workload.

    I worked at A. H. Belo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well-established company with many connections, they are growing their product portfolio and diversifying revenue.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between departments and products, constant rounds of layoffs, lack of stability with the newspaper revenue. Everything that is done is done to keep the paper alive, and that's a negative because several important divisions get forgotten.

    Advice to Management

    Communication. There needs to be a more consistent message across management. One second we were told everything is great and on the rise, next thing people are getting laid off and other positions are opening. It's confusing.
