Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ILJanuary 8, 2017
Got up at 2 am to receive papers from distribution. All papers had to be delivered before 6 am, except Sunday which had to be there by 7 am. Other drivers were nice and managers were great

An interesting place to work.
Paper Boy (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ILFebruary 8, 2016
On the separate occasions that I've worked at Herald & Review I've learned some simple life skills. I had learn things such as simple time management and basic people skills. The management was great for the most part, with very few occasions that would cause me to begin the job a little later than usual.The hardest part of the job were the hours I had to worked. On a typical day I would arrive at 2 am and could expect to be running papers until 4 that same morning. While the hours were difficult in the beginning I would eventually begin to get used to working them. It came to a point to where I would look forward to working the hours. During this time everything was calm, which made it even more enjoyable to be working at the Herald & Review,
Pros
Short hours, Easy Work, Nice Management, Easy Pay
Cons
Working in bad weather, Occasional delays

Packaging (Current Employee) –  Decatur, ILJune 7, 2012
It's not a place to really advance however it does have job security. My co-workers are helpful and share their knowledge at will.
The hardest part of the job is getting the timing down for the operations.
The most enjoyable part is conquering a new challenge
Pros
hours are convenient
Cons
it's only part time. no benefits and not much money gained from it

Good people, rough leadership.
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ILMarch 22, 2012
With print media going south, the expectations of selling print media is rather high. The advertising costs are through the roof which makes the newspaper itself not worth reading. My position was pretty low stress, yet I took advantage of it and paid the price. If leadership were more personable and people-freindly I think things would have been much different. I certainly wish I had dont things differently
Pros
great people to work with
Cons
low pay, high stress environment

Features writer (Former Employee) –  Decatur ILFebruary 22, 2012
This was my second job and I really enjoyed working there. Some may wonder why. It's because being the only show in town, we really covered Decatur and Central Illinois like a blanket. Lots of news, features, etc. Good people to work with. Lee Enterprises was a good company. Has fallen on hard times, like most newspapers. But overall, good.
Pros
plenty of news to cover; good people to work with
Cons
you are in a small midwestern city, but i loved it there.
