    Good people here but I wonder why it seems that there is an opening here almost every six months.

    I interviewed for this a few years back and the people seemed straight-forward. I remember something about 48 hour weeks and only getting paid 40 though, and I also remember something about getting out early on Fridays.

    There was also some sort of writing test, I don't remember what it entailed.

    Good guys to work with. Mark Mensheha is a good managing editor and overall, the staff is pretty hardworking. I wonder, though, if any of the laid off NASCAR Scene guys get first dibs since they are the same company?
