Obituary Consultant and Classified Ad Team Member (Current Employee) – Napa, CA – March 18, 2017
Lee is very concerned with its employees' happiness and general life balance. They provide opportunities for growth and guidance and my experience has been that their policies and procedures are fair and balanced.
Advertising Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – January 30, 2017
I have worked for Lee Enterprises for a number of years and in the past couple of years it has really gone downhill. Customer service is a joke, there are no advancement opportunities in my department and they are constantly rearranging the sales department structure.
I would not recommend this place to anyone unless you are best friends with one of the managers - then you will be paid well no matter how you perform.
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – December 12, 2016
I didnt care for this job at all, the management was very odd they picked their favorites and the rest basically got picked on. We were punished for being sick or calling in if children were sick. All in all a terrible company.
Reduced my hour lunch to half hour because they kept firing people
Assistant Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) – Helena, MT – August 15, 2016
I learned a great deal from this job, just exactly how much a company can break labor laws and get away with it. Just how mean management can be. Just how much as a person, I can take from other mean people and still come to work and do my duties. I learned just how strong I am as an individual. I also learned just how biased a news company can be. Eye opening!
The most enjoyable day of this job was literally the day I quit.
Fulfillment (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – May 18, 2016
I was with this company for several years, first at a newspaper property then at the corporate office. The team of directors and VP's are some of the most deceitful I've ever had the displeasure of working alongside. They care about their salaries and keeping stock holders happy with little to no regard for the employees who are actually doing the tasks that keep the company running. This company will make empty promises of positive changes and the upper management cannot be trusted. I witnessed some extremely unprofessional behavior on the VP and CEO level in my time there and wouldn't recommend this company to anybody.

I enjoyed the daily work assignments.
The decision not to replace vacating workers created an impossible work load.
