Working for The DMN
Assistant Distributor (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXJanuary 30, 2018
Working for The Dallas Morning News has been the most challenging experience of my life. The owner of the company and people who don’t work along side us have NO idea what the working conditions are like. It’s a terrible work environment and they are supremently and stupendously hands off and no desire to try to cater to the workforce, which we have to privately build ourselves, to provide stable wages. I officially work for the “home delivery” side of the company, we aren’t compensated for use of our private vehicles, which we use to drive for many miles and many hours to deliver their products, or for use of our own personal devices as the Morning News does not supply us with reliable means to even do the job properly. To get to the point, the job pays the bills.
Pros
Short work hours
Cons
No compensation for anything, no days off, 7 days a week, no hazard pay, no...no anything, really.

Not a fun place to work.
Credit & Commercial Collections (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 19, 2018
I am no longer employed there but the environment was very unpleasant because of the bullying by other employees & management did nothing to stop it.

A typical day at work was processing credit applications, making collection calls & negotiating past due balance with the customer. Also conferring with the sales team on potential & existing customers.

the management was not very supportive of the individual efforts & very critical.
Pros
It was a job
Cons
working conditions

Assistant News Editor (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 4, 2018
Newspaper facing the usual 21st-century dilemma of leaving print for digital. I worked for the print side until my job was outsourced in 2017. It's a good place for editors and reports.

Dallas Morning News was detail and interesting
Data Entry II (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 4, 2017
Dallas Morning News was detail and interesting. My job was dealing with customers by mail. I learned that customers really love to read the paper, especially Sunday paper because they had discounts & coupons. I also love the people in the department. The hardest part of the job was working on Saturday.
