Press Operator (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – July 26, 2017
I worked for the Fresno Bee, for over 24 years, and was very sad to see it move out of the area for production. I appreciated that there was still a place that existed in which employees were rewarded for their job performance as individuals. Having had the opportunity to know and work with some of the Employees that started at the Bee, in its early years was exiting and rewarding, which allowed me to gain much experience, on various presses. The Fresno Bee as it was is missed.
