Fun place to work with great people.
Pressroom Manager (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJune 16, 2014
Pros: the challenge of producing a good looking newspaper everyday.
Cons: long downtime when the press broke down.
The Enquirer had a deadline and everything revolved around that. The job was complicated and challenging because I had to deal with press knowledge and how to deal with people. The hardest part of the job was disciplining the people. The most enjoyable part was watching the finished product leave the pressroom.

3rd shift for 20 years, but with good union benefits
Assistant Production Manager (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: great insurance, great salary, great co workers
Cons: weekend nights and holidays for 20+years
I liked my job other than the fact that my hours/days worked were undesirable. I worked weekends and holidays 7p-3a for 20+ years. Great benefits and salary, but my job was outsourced to a company in Columbus, which is why I am searching for a new job.

Columbus Project Consultant (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 2, 2013
I seriously enjoyed my work at The Cincinnati Enquirer. Gannett Corporation, unfortunately, decided to contract out all production work to Columbus, OH so that the newspaper could be printed in a new format which was not feasible in Cincinnati.

Productive work place, consistent with change, great co workers
Sales Coordinator (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHDecember 10, 2012
Pros: flexible; downtown close to shopping & eateries
Cons: constant change in managers and positions, long traffic delays.
I have learned many, many things in this business and there is still more to be learned everyday. The best part of this job are the co-workers. They are friendly and helpful with any requests brought to them. In the position that I have, it is filled with busy, constant contact with customers, managers and co-workers to get the job done. I have to say – more... that one of the nicest advantages at the Enquirer is the flexibility that is allowed. If you need to be somewhere, it doesn't matter the time of day, you can leave and make it up that week. I have had several managers over the past 6 years and they have all been very helpful in seeing that I succeed in my positions.
My position has been eliminated so therefore I need to find another job by mid January. – less

Enquirer was a great place to work, I worked there for 19 1/2 years, all companies has their challenges, but this is where I wanted to retire.
Outside Multi-Media Account Executive (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHSeptember 6, 2012
My position as an Outside Multi-Media Account Executive was a position where there was minimal supervision on a day to day basis. As an Account Executive you are responsible for maintaining account relationships, staying in contact with decision makers and making your territory your own small business. I enjoyed working with the apartment management – more... companies in the apartment industry, I have been working with that group for at least 15 of the 19 1/2 years during my employment with the Enquirer. The Enquirer was a great place to work, continious training to help you achieve your goal and a great support staff to keep Account Executives in the field. – less

High energy position
Major Account Executive (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 2, 2012
As a Major Account Executive, I initially worked with car manufacturers, advertising agencies and the internal Art Dept. in order to create advertising flights for print. It was very interesting and constantly changing. Organization was key in this position, which required me to submit ads in order to meet deadlines. I also worked with local automotive – more... dealers for ad creation and placement. Very involved with not only the creation and verification of ads, but billing as well. – less
