keep your head down & you Mouth Shut..
Operator in Training / Finishing Technician (Former Employee), West Allis, WIMay 24, 2015
Pros: It's a check till you can fine somthing better..
Cons: drain on your family life, night over to days every sixteen weeks and i could go on..
Full time, part time, or Tem, Not a good place unless you kiss a lot of butt.. I work 12 years there, turn 62 and was march out the door..

Got injure on the job, I filed Workers Comp and they didn't like that
they try to make it out as it was my fault..

You have too watch who you talk too or you'll find a knife in your back, you get points for turning in your fellow employee, more so when it's the Shift Managers & lead mans Review time.. Man can you see the Lips Fly..

Like KOOL-AID?
Just a number on a spread-sheet (Former Employee), PAMay 18, 2015
Pros: Job (That's the best I can do)
If you like Kool-Aid and are willing to be just a number with no life then this is the place for you. The core values state over and over how much they "care" about you-really? Long Hours, split shifts, poor management, no raises, rules, rules, rules. They have rules to make rules!

This job was fine ...schedule was the only thing I couldn't work with .
Team Leader (Former Employee), Winchester, VA.May 18, 2015
The job and all the people were perfect. Just the Quad schedule was hard to do with my current situation with a child. A typical day would be a 12 hour day loading and unloading trucks as well as leading a team of 7 team members. Working closely with upper management. The hardest part of the job really was nothing ....move fast and accurate as well as safely. Best part was staying busy makes a fast 12 hour shift!!!

Selling things and learning about electronics
Stacker (Former Employee), Del City, OKMay 12, 2015
Learning about electronics was so much fun. Working with customers and fitting there needs was great also. Selling merchandise and stocking everything. Learning that everything has its own place was extremely challenging. The fun part at the end of the was, finishing the days work completed.

Productive workplace, Overall morale could be higher.
Prepress Process Specialist (Current Employee), East Greenville, PAMay 12, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Cons: Job stability
Quad Graphics adheres to a strict business model that works out for some but not for others. Your job is more protected as a legacy Quad employee, but if you are new to the family, all bets are off.

Working as a press material handler
Roll Tender and Press Material Handler (Current Employee), 855 Caperton Blvd, Martinsburg, WV 25403May 7, 2015
You are constantly on your feet for 12 hours watching a huge machine lift and stack magazines. You carefully have to keep an eye out for any mess ups the machine causes or jam ups coming down the line. While this is happening you also have to deal with product kicking out. When it does kick out you must scan the load tag, put a box top on the skid, and refill the machine with another skid. But this is only if the press is running. Occasionally, the press does go down and then you have to go in the back to clean up and put the paper back in. Simple things I have learned are simple computer inputs, developing better time management skills, and being able to work with different people. The co-workers are sometimes stand offish but most of the time they are nice to talk to and they work hard. The management is always around to make sure everything is going as planned, or they come to help with messes. The hardest part for me is having to stand the whole 12 hours, but on the bright side I find that the people there can make you laugh more than you expected.

you can find a better job, keep looking!
press assistant (Current Employee), Midland, MIMay 5, 2015
Pros: benefits for fulltime....and that's all!!
Cons: you will be a #, not an employee
You can make good money fast but do not plan on a long term career in a hourly position, I've been there 15+ years and have yet to see an hourly employee retire!

Poor management favoritism
Finishing Technician/ Ink Jet Operator (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKMay 2, 2015
Pros: Lots of hours
Cons: To many to list
The company wants to place you where they want you not where you want to be. Also if you want to transfer to another department you have to fight to do so. The supervisors punish you if you need something changed. A lot of childishness

Lost management, NO sales direction
Pre Media Technician – (Former Employee), VirginiaApril 29, 2015
Pros: Learn to bill a job correctly
Cons: NEVER a cost of living raise, just NEVER
Quad management is lost. Boat without a captain. Too big to know whats going on. Culture dictates customers are KING, but devalues current employees. Quad culture does NOT value employees. Automation is a key word for replacing you with outside vendors. Headwinds = no raises.
