My husband and I tried it when I we were engaged! We thought it was a rip-off! First of all, it is 7 days a week! And we would have to get up at like 3:30am, to get over there, put our papers together, then be off. With our other jobs, it was hard to get to bed before 10pm...so we were constantly exausted!
Plus, you pay for your own gas, you pay for your own bags, you pay for your own rubber bands. The huge thing was...when we went to get married, we told them we needed two weeks off. Well they gave us a list of subs. It turns out, the subs. want you to pay them more than you actually get paid! So like, if we made like 8 cents per paper, they wanted 12 cents per paper! So we would have gotten home after 2 weeks, and then had to work for a week just to pay the guy who subbed for us!
We got so frustrated because we felt totally swindled! When all was said and done, w/ 2 of us, working from 4am-6am....we realized we were only getting like $4 an hour each! So we just quit! So not worth it! This is the Arizona Republic in Tempe, Arizona...about 4 years ago! I wouldn't do it again, personally!
