    FYI, from what I understand, your starting salary likely will be your salary for a while, as the company has been on a wage freeze for 3 years now, and there is no company match for that 401K.

    This lists copy editing twice. Maybe they wanted to stress that you'll die of exhaustion from copy editing. Also, you have to design pages AND lay out the sports section...

    I would think you would just design the section on the computer, rather than laying it out on paper.
