"A day as a packing distributor for the Republican Newspaper"
Former EmployeeDistributor
A typical start to my day required me to punch in and report to my area. In my area, thousands of newspapers and thousands of inserts were waiting. These newspapers had to be opened and the inserts had to be put inside each newspaper. I utilized mechanical equipment to insert flyers in mass quantities and was required to meet a daily quota of 6,000 + inserts per shift. I worked by myself primarily but when I had to work with others I was able to do so. There wasn't really a hard part to my job. I remained consistent in my work and met my quotas. The most enjoyable part of my job was reaching the high quotas set at the beginning of each shift. I always worked hard and it was nice to see that I reached the goals daily.

Working for the Republican/ Masslive has given me a great perspective into the world of covering sports. Everyone who works in the inner workings is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Getting to know some of the kids I covered, and write about them is rewarding,
