Work was great; The company did not pay us...nor is there room for advancement.
Pros: hours work nice
Cons: zero compensation, often times coming out of own pocket for position.
I love freelance writing, and the open hours work out nicely when juggling other work commitments and family. However, the Examiner needs a total revamping. While I understand the need to prove yourself as a writer, thus paving the way for so many "intern" positions, eventually a person would like to get paid for the work that they do. As a food examiner, I was paying to go to restaurants, and then writing the articles, never receiving compensation. When their site was revamped, it was very confusing for people to navigate, so most people in our area started going to Columbus Alive.
