    Stay Away..stay far away from this company. I worked for a sister paper and they are as cheap as they come. They're benefits are some of the worst I've ever seen. I can get cheaper insurance by going directly to Blue Cross Blue Shield website than what they were going to charge me. Leesburg is an OK town...at least its 45 mins from Orlando and rent is pretty reasonable.

    PM me if you want to know any info.
  3. I, too, wouldn't know where to begin on this.

    I've covered things alongside some Leesburg folks, and they're plenty nice, but the job itself and the paper leave much to be desired for anyone.

    Besides, you'd obviously have to live in or around Leesburg. Unless your only interest in life is hiking nature trails and swimming with manatees, you're going to be bored out of your mind. Ocala will look like NYC to you after you've spent a few months in a place like that.
