    Heard the place has turned around a little bit since Gatehouse moved in and sucked it away from Gannett. People there are fairly nice and friendly, from what I know of them.

    But plenty of others have had raw dealings with the shop, so I'm not the best one to consult.
  3. Trust me, nothing has changed since Gatehouse took over. It's the same circus, just with different clowns. Two words: Stay away.

    Any idea on the salary for this position? And does it involve any reporting at all, or just editing and layout duties? Why "stay away" Price?

    Vets, help him out.
  6. This place has a bad reputation of hiring the wrong people. A couple of examples. The reference by wicked in the original post had to do with the former sports editor at the Bulletin. A lot of people who worked with him before he went to the Bulletin didn't get along with him. And it just wasn't a couple of people.

    And then he came to the Bulletin, it was more of the same. I even hear he was accused of sexual harassment on two occasions. And what does Gannett do? Push the accusations to the side and allow him to take a job in the midwest.

    The current assistant sports editor was hired with no prior newspaper experience. He was a local radio personality who freelance for the Bulletin. From what I've heard, the guy has been nothing but a disaster.

    Those are just a couple examples, but the Bulletin is kind of a black hole. Some people have escaped, while others take the bs and bend over at the waist and ask for more. I think the biggest thing there is the paper doesn't understand its place on the food chain. Instead of touting itself as a small daily that can send its reporters to bigger and better things, its offended when people leave. Sounds like a bizarre attitude to have.

    Like I said, just because it says Gatehouse and not Gannett doesn't mean a thing. Same circus, different clowns.

    but what about the pay? Mid 30's - low 40's?

    High 20s, that's just a hunch.

    Better hope you win often at Mohegan if you wanna live decently in the area.
  9. If you're just starting out, definitely high 20s, probably 29K. If you have experience, obviously more, but it won't get crazy.
  10. I started off there at just under 30K and finished off in four years a little over 32K.
