Workdays were varied and consisted of developing plans to improve the circulation of the paper. Also trained adult carriers, developed marketing plans to improve circulation, customer relations and occasionally delivered newspaper routes. Learned basic accounting, searching and contracting carriers. Learned how to interact with independent carriers.Basic marketing skills e.g. promotions. There was a manager and an assistant manager that were assigned geographical areas that newspaper was delivered.
The culture was relaxed with flexible scheduling. The hardest part was when newspaper routes had to be delivered requiring earlier than normal start times. The most enjoyable part was actually delivering the newspaper.
