A good first job, but nothing more
In short, this was a solid first job out of college. However, I do not see how anyone in the midst of their career or with a family to support could realistically work here.
Days, though quick-paced due to breaking news, were lengthy in terms of hours worked. If you didn't come in early before your shift to help with work, there was little chance - more ... of being able to leave right when your shift ended due to the amount of things to cover. Most of the time, I felt like a doctor on-call with my manager saying I needed to be able to come in if someone called out sick. It's my right to have two days ... - less
ProsInteresting work environment, friendly coworkers
ConsMandatory OT, low pay, no advancement
