No advancement, not a welcomeing job
Mailer (Former Employee), Burnham Milwaukee WIApril 27, 2014
Pros: pay 10.00 3rd shift only
Cons: no hours, 2)3 days out a week, poor management
You get hired if you land a interview no doubt,the people who are up higher like management in supervisor they dont help you out if your struggling they just look at you as if you were dumb, they also look down on you in there favoritism, all of the supervisors are fascist for sure, they have one supervisor who was a journey man who pics on people in make workers he don't know do all kind of work in he will sit in talk to other coworkers in watch u instead of having those coworkers help. Over all this is a place that shouldn't be hiring new people cus they half train then fire you when there's no work so be careful in don't expect this to be a long term job!

Sales
Integrated Media Manager (Current Employee), Franklin, TNSeptember 20, 2013
An Integrated Media Manager travels within a community or throughout the state to deliver marketing and branding opportunities to existing or new clients by finding what best suits their needs.
The most enjoyable part of this job is meeting different people and learning more about corporations and their marketing needs.

Fun place to work
Integrated Media Manager (Current Employee), Franklin, TNAugust 31, 2012
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: in tennessee
A typical day includes 7-8 appointments and 25-30 calls. I give a 20 minute sales pitch and uncover the needs of the potential advertiser. I manage my self in the field, but get great guidance from the sales manager. I enjoy time with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is getting the appointments, the most enjoyable is getting the sale.

The company is NOT as good as advertised. Please check around and try to read reviews prior to making a commitment to this company
Integrated Media Manager (Current Employee), Franklin, TNMarch 28, 2012
Pros: fun environment but only for the honeymoon period, "churn and burn" mentality
Cons: company is very deceptive, practices are unethical, for sales people, be very careful when accepting a position
In the beginning, you will feel this company is all that's advertised however, after being there for a while, you will quickly understand the culture of the company is to get sales out of its sales people quickly and recycle you out the door. The company gives a lot of "back end" incentives to dangle a carrot so to say, but their mentality is for you NOT to be there at the end. Although this may sound like a bitter employer review, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, understand, this company is NOT who they say they are. There is a lot of cold calling and telemarketing that you are not told about in the interview and sales school, as they call it. You will be blind sided as the weeks and months progress. This is a very honest review so do with it what you must. I truly wish I would have known prior to joining their glitz and glory atmosphere only to be sadly disappointed with their work ethic as a company.

Great Product, Poor Distribution, Poor compensation, extreme travel!
Integrated Media Manager (Former Employee), Nashville, TNMarch 12, 2012
Pros: excellent product, great opportunity to travel
Cons: poor commission structure, small base (draw), poor product distribution
Journal Communications produces a top notch quality, one of the best in the business. Unfortunately, the distribution of the product is poor so many advertisers don't get to reap the benefits of promoting their brand to a target audience. Sales representatives are the face of the company but not compensated for what they produce for several months. Also, certain projects are better, and higher paying then others, but throughout a year, you will have to work several poor projects.
