More than a bike and a cart is needed for this run
Carrier (Former Employee) –  Antioch, CAJanuary 1, 2013
Simply put, the new-age paper carriers aren't ones on bicycles. They are men and women who drive their personal vehicles from house to house before sunrise to run a route, 7 days a week. While seems like fun out the gate, you'll realize, that loading up your car with newspapers in the amounts of 200 to 800, can be very disheartening. The idea of being that person to bring their news to their doorsteps is kind of nice. The reality is, its tough work. Unless you pay someone else to run your route, you never get a day off & getting up to run errands after that is even more tough. Your car will have a love/hate relationship with you in no time.
Pros
free newspaper
Cons
wear and tear on mind, body, soul, and vehicle

Graphic Designer/Production Artist (Former Employee) –  Antioch, CAJanuary 18, 2013
Actually at sister paper of Contra Cost Times, The Ledger Dispatch in Antioch, CA. Working with the art-team was very educational but as news websites have taken over, work security has been shakey at best.
Pros
great people to work with.
