editor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 13, 2016
I was surrounded by some great minds at this company and glad to have worked there when I did. The environment was a sea of beige, but we managed to look past that when creating content for monthly magazines. I will miss the views!

Freelance Video Editor (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 14, 2015
After working in the news industry for only a few months it doesn't take much for you to become jaded by news. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and everyone was very friendly even during crunch-time. The pay-rate was nice based upon the job requirements that were asked of myself. It is a solid starting-job to have if you are looking to take the next step career-wise.

Assistant to the Publisher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 8, 2015
Worked with the Publishing Director/Publisher of several shelter magazine. As his assistant, I managed his calendar, travel, expenses and other administrative work, as necessary. I loved working with the PD as he was very knowledgeable, a forward-thinker, creative and caring. He allowed me the opportunity to work on several projects with the Marketing/Promotion department when I expressed interest. There was an atmosphere of camaraderie throughout the office and this was one of the first times I experienced in publishing in which the Editor and the Publisher got along and had great respect for each other. When the magazine was sold, I went with the Publisher to another publishing company.
creative; opportunity to work on different aspects of publishing

Engineer (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 14, 2015
Work consisted of a 5 1/2 hour newscast Monday-Friday in the morning; or 4 hour newscast on the weekend in the morning if doing news production duties. The newscast was followed about 45 minutes to an hour later by the recording of a daily hour-long 'lifestyle' program Monday-Friday which included many different guest segments, some of which were paying clients to showcase their businesses. Television operations consisted of the constant preparation of programs to be made ready for 'on-air'. In addition, the overall monitoring of several television stations which were being run out of the facility(which at one time was 4 stations). I learned how to work with varying personalities and attitudes towards work during my time of employment. The most difficult part of the job was probably how monotonous it could become, but what job doesn't have this possibility. The most enjoyable part of the job was being left for the most part to do your job without too much supervision. Each person new their job function and what was expected of them on a daily basis.
Friendly work environment; being involved in fast paced work
Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) – Saginaw, MI – July 9, 2015
Fix everything that the news department breaks while being pulled away by numerous people paging you that they broke more things. Deal with 2 bosses that never talk to each other and they both think they are the ultimate authority about EVERYTHING. And....you're at half-staffing. Life's a peach.
Very unorganized management, terrible and overpriced insurance
Custodian (Former Employee) – Lima, Oh – February 23, 2015
A typical day would start off with cleaning all doorknobs, phones and light switches in all the offices. Then, dusting all furniture but not disturbing anything on the attorney's desks. Vaccumming the carpets was usually next. Then, cleaning the break room and the bathrooms. I learned about hard work and the importance of cleaning every office (especially during cold and flu season). I did not have to deal with management much, but when I did they were great. My co-workers were my mother and sister. So, it was not bad working with them. The hardest part of the job was the constant heavy lifting and moving of furniture. The enjoyable part was being able to do the cleaning on weekends.
