ADVERTISING ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – February 24, 2019
I've found Fort Wayne Newspapers to be very good at recognizing success although attainable goals are somewhat skewed in that you are tied to a territory and the success (or lack thereof) of the previous rep in said territory.

The one thing about FW Newspapers is that the challenges that are presented will keep you moving day in and day out. That is the negative, the positive is that the challenges will vary from day to day and you will very rarely have two days that are exactly the same.

Would not reccomend except to someone just starting out. Not good for someone looking for long time career. Good for kids just out of high school looking for first job but no chance for advancement or pay raises.

Fort Wayne newspapers was a good 1st job I had. I was going door to door selling a Sunday newspaper subscription 10 weeks for $20 which wasnt a bad deal. I met rude people,nice people and I talked a lot of people into buying it so you can say I sales experience.
We had alot of fun on the job
If you didnt make money within 3 days you got fired
Carrier (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – March 22, 2018
It is a good place to work they do have accident insurance, you work in your car delivery papers and have 3-5 hours to deliver the papers to the houses. It only takes about an hour Monday - Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday. It is a great job for extra money.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – March 22, 2018
It was a nice place to work everyone got along alot of teamwork was needed. I learned that it takes more than just me to get a job done. The management was great easy to talk to and gave flexible work schedules. the culture was awesome everyone got along. The hardest part was standing in one spot for 10 hours at a time. The most enjoyable part was the teamwork and how everyone got along

Newspapers are closing down and/or going to strictly digital formats across the country due to changing industry, and Fort Wayne is no different. One of their newspapers went to mostly digital format in 2017 and many employees were downsized. This will be a continued trend. Also the overall workplace enviorment is very discouraging
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – November 7, 2017
A typical day at work is spent primarily on the phones with customers handling complaints, vacation entries, and processing payments or cancellations. This is a fairly independent workplace with little management. The team there is excellent and takes extra projects in stride with ease. The most difficult part of the job is handling irate customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people that work there.
Systems Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – May 22, 2017
Low pay. Benefits adequate. Upper management satisfactory. Immediate supervisor pathetic. Supervisor terminated running side business using company computers. Very stressful working conditions under that supervisor.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – March 29, 2017
It's a strange balance of micromanagement and not providing the tools you need to do a good job. I loved the projects, my co-workers and my clients. But the management is slow to respond to important needs of its staff. The newspaper is a quickly changing industry and FWN is not nimble enough to adjust. They ended up putting an impossible amount of pressure on the salespeople.
