    Why is pay rarely listed? Don't they know they could weed out a lot of applicants and not have to sift through so much paperwork if they would just list a window.

    Don't expect more than $30,000 especially when places like Flagstaff pay less than $28K for the SE job.

    I believe the sports staffs in Corvallis and Albany are combined. This is a smart, soggy town that loves its Beavs, but that circulation means the pay will be low and the cost of living is higher than some college towns.

    Only eager beavers need apply - no odd ducks.

    Good paper...not crazy about the Lee chain...and a chance to be involved with the Pac-10.

    I too, wish a pay range was posted more often on these boards, but I'd say it would probably top out at $30K at best

    The sports staffs of the Corvallis Gazette-Times and the Albany Democrat-Herald are not combined, but they do work together as needed.
    The staff in Corvallis covers OSU.
