Sports Writer in Newport, RI
on November 16, 2018
I enjoyed a lot about my job the first 6-8 years I was there (I lasted 15 total), but as the paper continued to lose money, the perks that made it fun began to disappear. When GateHouse Media purchased the paper in 2017, things went downhill quickly and it no longer was an enjoyable place to continue my journalism career.

did not like this job, they were unfair, the pay was good but they did not take out taxes every two weeks so that was bad, no benfits, no days off, no holiday pay. bad place to work

The Daily News is a solid company where a quality, accurate news paper is the first priority. The press room runs at night so there is little interaction with the rest of the company so in effect you are on your own little island. This is good in that you focus solely on your work, but bad because you are disconnected as a company that tries to promote a family feel.

It's been 10 years since I worked there and now they have a new owner so I can't speak for the current company atmosphere. They had good benefits and I enjoyed working there.

This was the first job I had working for a paycheck. It was a great experience for me and I think it taught me how to appreciate the value of a dollar. The hardest part of the job was waking up Saturday mornings to deliver papers. The best part of the job was the Christmas tips.
