Good People/ no attitude of future
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Leominster, MAJuly 29, 2015
Pros: 4 days on 3 days off / 3 on 4 off
Cons: 3 - 15 min breaks / 12 Hour Shift Standing
Wonderful 12 hour shifts standing on feet all night and/or day. 4 days on 3 days off then 3 days on and 4 days off, liked that part. I started out as a pocket feeder in the bindery. when hired i was told that i am over qualified and if/when i move up to forklift i would receive a $1.00 raise. 3 months later i was given the materials handler position and became responsible for the Bindery department – more... as far as bringing 12 machines the required materials and pulling finished materials from those 12 and moving it down the line. as well as handle the boxing inventory and waste generated. well 3 more months into my new position and still no raise as promised...So , I left.

No communication between Departments and the "REAL" Employees and Management do not care about the "TEMP TO HIRE" crew. Their attitude is: "NEXT"!!! – less

It was ok
Material handler (Former Employee), Augusta gaJuly 17, 2015
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: work EVERYDAY doin 12 hr shifts
When i first started I thought my job was to jus be an material handler(stacker). But they wanted you to do more then your expecting. When the machines would break down . you have to web the machines. So that the machines can get back to rolling but when the machine breaks down after four to five times. It starts to get aggravating. And the ink fumes were very strong.The people were very nice and make sure your doing everything right. So you dont get hurt. The area I was at its not a woman job to me honestly.

Worst job of my adult life
premedia (Former Employee), addison, txJuly 14, 2015
Pros: None
Cons: everything
I took a job in the premedia department and from the day I accepted the offer, it was all downhill. Orientation was a shock to myself and the other new hires-- 10 days vacation (not until you'd been at the company a year) and zero sick time. You have to use vacation to be sick-- or don't get paid. Really?! Your "shift" cannot be started early, but stay as late as you want-- in fact, if you don't stay – more... late, you are considered a slacker. Pressure from management to work overtime every day-- every single day. Your home life means nothing to these people-- it's all about the $$ they are getting. 98% of my coworkers were overweight and had multiple health issues-- probably due to working 12 hour days daily. The manager watched you every second-- to the point of being creepy. He acted shocked when I gave notice (got another job as soon as I could) after 2 months. I wasn't sleeping and was depressed and dreaded that job every single day. A company that doesn't value me or my family doesn't deserve me. The most horrible job in all 40 years of my life. Run away from this place. – less

not a great place
Part Time Distribution (Former Employee), Saratoga Springs, NYJuly 9, 2015
Pros: ...
Cons: healthcare, interrupted lunches, long hours and/or being sent home after 3 hours, unprofessional leaders
unprofessional managers and very dirty, lazy people working here. the only places you can really escape it is with the CSR's, HR, or in the medical office. you either work long hours and feel like death when you come home or get sent home early every other day. there is no in between. you hear employees constantly talking about how they fear losing their job and you see people who have been here 25-30 years and are being laid off or let go.

Upper management only cares about upper management
Associate (Former Employee), United StatesJune 2, 2015
Pros: Clinics if on medical plan
Cons: Advancement opportunities limited
QuadMed - during company meetings only HQ staff and accomplishments were ever talked about and not other locations or clinics.

Some good managers/supervisors but they too always had hard time getting through all of the red tape to make a difference with senior leaders.

Lack of communication across departments.
