ADVERTISING SERVICES COORDINATOR, Red Deer, AB - 30 March 2017
I loved my job at Black Press. Yes, I would go back again. However, the biggest problem is unstability. There are a lot of changes going on in that industry and positions were being terminated, like mine. I was in newspaper for 27 years. In the space of one year 2015 - 2016, all management staff left on their own, staff are always leaving on their own. Those who are left are there just because its a job and they need the money. Management in Black Press itself is okay, but where I was it changed with very little knowledge about the runnings and operation on of a daily paper and had little compassion or respect for employees.That only reflects on one daily newspaper...not Black Press as a whole. Anyone else I worked with in Black Press, with other publishers and weekly papers, were wonderful staff and we all got along very well. I enjoyed the coworkers the most and miss them dearly.
