    I know it's dumb, but I'm applying to work for the college paper and I have to answer the dumb HR questions.

    I'm kind of stumped.

    Maybe reduced asignments and thus less pay for a certain period?

    Btw, if you want to be a journalist, be prepared to answer this question at every interview.

    link to your pics? Searching your posts in the A&P yields nothing but you posting pedobear and other dumb gifs. Half of the posters in here are worthless, you sir, are one of them.

    they should be stripped to their underwear, taken out back and have various condiments poured on them. Then the staff photographer should snap an image of this, and that image would replace the article they did not submit on time...

    Honestly, the last time I answered it was in front of a 10-person panel and cannot remember what I said. However, I do know that you need to walk the fence with most of the questions you will probably be asked. I probably said something like:

    1) Warning
    2) Write up/warning/dock a week's pay
    3) Fired

    But if you can, you want to offer some sort of solution as opposed to just some action. For instance, a good editor should recognize that all writers/photogs are different and should adjust his deadlines accordingly. Also, a good editor should be able to work with his or her writers to help them through missing deadlines. Most people can be helped to become efficient news writers but some cannot and should become magazine freelancers :mamoru:

    So yeah. Essentially they just want you to acknowledge that deadlines are important and should never be missed :rolleyes:. The problem is that most college papers and journalism classes stress deadlines more than quality of information gathering, sources, and/or writing.

    It was an accusation I decided to add to my user text. This was back when I actually provided real raw (valuable) feedback that wasn't actually trolling. Now 90% of the time A&P is too boring for me to actually provide real advice. The good people are really good and don't need me telling them how to get better and the bad people are still bad and wont get better no matter what advice I give them.

    A missed deadline is usually a sign that management is making unreasonable demands upon the workers. Staff members who miss deadlines should write up a report about which manager(s) assigned them the overload.

    A missed deadline is most likely due to assignments involving surveys from the HR department and should be paid on the clock for dedicating time to said surveys.
