    I submitted condensed portfolio Sept. 17 and would love to know more specifics. Number of high schools in coverage area, pay, relocation assistance?
  3. Two major high schools in town who are rivals. You'll be accused of being a homer for one within days of working there.

    One small county school with really solid basketball program...a bit of a throwback in an area more focused on football.

    Great place to live. Family friendly, but also not bad at all for a young single person.

    Pay somewhere in upper 30s/low 40s I'd guess.

    Can't say enough bad things about the newsroom. Let's call a spade a spade. The name you're sending your clips to is notorious for being impossible to work with and the publisher isn't known for being much better.

    I had a decent experience working here. I left about five years ago. Others I worked with didn't fare as well. Spent a night out in town just last month with some guys from down there and "toxic" is the word used to describe the newsroom.

    Maybe someone more recent can shed more light on it, but I feel safe in saying this isn't a "great company to work for"
