A cast of many characters - despite the hard work we managed to have a few laughs in between.
Ad Taker/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 22, 2013
A TYPICAL DEADLINE DAY: Heavy customer service and typing!!!!! Tons of emails and faxes not to mention walk-ins. Entering ads from the sales reps. Dealing with the production department. At the end of the day you had to generate reports and process the payments you received from customers. You felt like you were on roller skates and when you left to go home you felt like a zombie.

A TYPICAL DAY AFTER DEADLINE: Less hectic except you had to proofread the layouts and resend copy to the production dept.

MID WEEK: You got to relax a little. The newspaper was delivered.

END OF WEEK: More deadlines but not as hectic as the beginning of the week. Just a lot of typing of Announcements.

WHAT I LEARNED? To be a team player. Everybody's role is valuable!!

THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB: Running the department by myself when my supervisor was on vacation. At one point we had 3 people in the department then the 3rd ad taker left and management didn't want to rehire someone.

THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB: Knowing that you did a good days work and feeling proud of yourself for all that you accomplished.
Pros
good benefits package.
Cons
job advancement.
