  2. Good place (stepping stone). Work (very) hard and move up.

    Great training ground. Lots of young reporters here moved up to much bigger papers.

    Good place to work. You will work hard, but you can move up from there. I enjoyed my time there. ASE Barry Byers is a great guy to work with. Sports Editor Gary McCann, also a very nice guy, and writes one heck of a good column.

    anyone care to guess what this would pay? and assuming by previous posts, this is somewhat entry level?
     
  6. Anyone have an answer for this question?

    This is either a really good paper or a really awful paper. All I can remember from discussions here is that it's not an average paper.

    Also it's the home of the Charlotte Knights and their faithful core of 600 fans.
     
  8. I've not heard anything really bad about this paper ... I just know it's a hard-working place and reporters end up making pretty good jumps to the next level after a few years. If you have 0-4 years in the business I would encourage you to apply.
     
  9. Due to recent information, I'd like to clarify my earlier statements and say that yes I have heard this is a crappy place to work. Proceed with caution.
     
  10. What makes this a crappy place to work? I could not find any other threads on here about it and applied. It seems like a decent place. Could you elaborate? Thanks.
