Great relaxing job with no days off
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  New Bern, NCMarch 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.
Pros
Worked at own pace
Cons
No days off.

Account Executive (Former Employee) –  New Bern, NCAugust 17, 2017
Great job for someone that had just graduated college but not for a long term career due to the instability of the industry. Management is always under stress and unable to assist employees.

Too much upheaval
editor (Current Employee) –  Lewiston, MEMay 29, 2015
No one feels secure about their jobs, lack of communication from management fosters rumors, unfair distribution of work -- some have a lot, others find things to fill their time

Productive work place, Fast paced and forever changing responsibilities
single copy manager (Current Employee) –  New Bern, NCMarch 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.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
uncertain hours with salary
