Designer (Former Employee) – Lewiston – August 7, 2018
I was a designer at the paper, working nights. There wasn't a lot of opportunities for advancement. The people were great to work with though. I started with the idea that I would work part-time until I proved I could do the work. Unfortunately, I don't think the company had the budget to hire me full time. I had to leave to find something more stable and that paid better. It's good for starting out, but not necessarily a good long term job; especially since the Costello's don't own the company any more.
Good co-workers, getting industry experience
No accrued vacation, hours not stable, not enough pay for what you go through
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – New Bern, NC – March 12, 2018
Delivery newspaper driver was relaxing . Great people to work with. Met truck to pick up papers around 11pm-1am. Counted papers, organized for home and store deliveries. Bagged to keep dry. Set route but had to keep up with ever changing customer schedules for day to day subscriptions and vacations. Normally took 4-5 hours a night. I loved the job. Was hard on vehicle.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Lewiston, ME – November 16, 2016
I have never worked for a company that dosent care about their employees more than this one.. no chances of advancement.. no raises in three years.. more work to do though.. short on people so those that are still there work all the more..
Bonus every three months.. if they dont take it away
Management sucks.. no raises.. workload dosent match the pay
Productive work place, Fast paced and forever changing responsibilities
single copy manager (Current Employee) – New Bern, NC – March 22, 2015
Productive work place, Fast paced and changing every day. Great co-workers. The hardest part of the job is its uncertainty. You never know when a contractor decides to quit . This company just downsized its employees, with no warning.
