Fun place to work excellent employees
Mailroom Employee, promoted to Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Harlingen, TXDecember 12, 2013
This job is a good job for somebody who looks to start building the job history but I wouldn't recommend you staying there for a long time just for a little while so you can get used to having a job but working there made me learn a lot and it showed me how to work on my people skills and it also taught me to get better acquainted with other employees
Pros
Good place to start working to get your work history up
Cons
If short staffed then you must work longer hours sometimes even holidays

productive workplace with equipment provided
Newspaper Carrier (Former Employee) –  Harlingen, TXFebruary 25, 2013
Only 2 to 3 hours in the morning and then collecting during the day for 2 to 3 hours around 6pm. I learned social skills and how to throw newspapers correctly to where the customer wanted it placed. there wasnt really a difficult time with the job. the most enjoyable part of the job was throwing the newspapers to the houses and finishing in a good amount of time and no mess up or misses of the houses.
Pros
only a coulple of hours a day
Cons
early in the morning
