Business Area Leader/Imaging IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – May 13, 2015
Quad/Graphics is the industry leader in print. My previous company was acquired in early 2013 and being brought into the Quad Culture has been pleasant experience. I have the best management support. Depending on your career track there is lots of growth potential and it is usually encouraged. For such a large company, they really make you feel like a person and not a number in my experience.
Material handling (Current Employee) – Martinsburg, WV – May 3, 2017
OK place for someone do wants to work part time Have 4shift 12 hours day & night not everyone is in a good move but its not bad place. I'm disappointed they have me for a whole year with out make me full time after I work most every day with out miss any day
12 hour shifts go by fairly quickly. Overtime was great, the people I worked with were great. I worked hard and it paid off. I was taking on new positions, and was a leader by helping new comers advance just like I was shown how.
benifits, great work enviorment, great co workers.
Shift lead/Distribution Material Handler (Current Employee) – East Longmeadow, MA – May 2, 2017
With the decline of paper advertising. Hours fluctuate. And can be hard to keep up on finances. Positions and or advancements can be hard to come by. You will find yourself taking on huge amounts of responsibities with no compensation.
Crewing and or staff can be rather easy to work with.
Roll Tender (Current Employee) – Effingham, IL – April 30, 2017
If the press is running than the days are fast paced an someone who knows what they are doing can stay caught up, but if it is someone new it is really easy for them to fall behind taking the product off the stacker or conveyor belt since they don't know exactly what is going on.
Learned how the mail was made an what all goes into it, when it comes to the kinds of paper, ink that goes on the paper, glue an everything else needed for certain types of jobs.
Management is really good an easy to get along with.
The hardest part of the job i believe as a roll tender is when you are on certain jobs where your press is running so fast that you go through rolls of paper quicker than usual(30 minutes a roll minimum-3 hours or more maximum per roll depending on how fast the presses run) an how fast you go through your ink, glue(all types), varnish, and UV an than have no time to do anything for yourself unless the press goes down for some reason.
Most enjoyable would be the first 2 hours , lunch, and the last 2 hours of the work day.
Paid lunches, vending machines, work overtime when needed
Very stressful, and can easily hurt/strain someones body

Baler Operator (Current Employee) – Hazleton, PA – April 15, 2017
It's nice to work for a company who provides service to many businesses worldwide. I think the company should treat their workers much better. We do hard work, and we make a lot of money for the company. A little generosity would be lovely on a more regular occasion...
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – York, PA – April 6, 2017
A typical day at quad was you would get there and be assigned to one of the machines,do your work until finished if it was small and then go to another machine and do that work until the end of the day until that was finished. What I learned is that you had to pay attention to the material when you were putting the material on the tables or benches because of the coloring flaws that they had and to bring it to the quality controls attention for the clients purposes. Management was pretty good but sometimes confusing as to what they wanted from you,but then they became clear about it.Work place culture was fast-paced and time sensitive as to getting the jobs out to the door.The hardest part of the job is that their was no hard part it was all pretty easy. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you and everyone else were like a family and you bonded together to get the jobs done.
