Stressful, demanding, fulfilling, exhausting
Production Manager (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 23 July 2014
There is no typical day on the sport section of a national newspaper. My Fridays are about 13 or 14 hours; my Saturdays between 16 and 19 hours. I learn every day that the standards I set myself are impossibly high, that everybody makes mistakes, that journalism should and can be fun. My colleagues are professional, creative and painstaking. The hardest part of the job is accepting that to err is human. The most enjoyable part of the job is polishing a page until it shines like a diamond.
Never enough time or resources to complete tasks perfectly
