Not a good move for journalists

I believe the five-star reviews are fake. This is an unhappy environment, where journalists are bottom of the (very much advertorial) food chain.

The pay is good, if you don't mind being miserable at work. And if you don't like it, management will remind you: you can easily be fired at any time.

Average day at Key Media.

In for a early morning and then make coffee.

Check voicemail and email before staff get in.

Write out schedule for the day.

Customers calls and mailings,meetings,staff

agenda for the week.

Process mail and balance cheques and cash. Record and do entries into system and do bank deposit.

Process credit card orders and amounts.

One hour lunch

Return calls and voicemail

Anyways friendly staff and other depts.

Learned greater patience and management challenges.

Loving the money balancing part of my job and how something so easy like a phone call can make someone's day and that they are a value to us.
Pros
large lunch room with TV for your one hour lunch.
Cons
no raise
