this is a hard company to work for never knowing what days each week your off or even working since there is not set schedule, you may work 45 days straight 12 hour shifts before a day off then only get one day off or may work one or two days in a week depending on work load,
A very disorganized company,,,expected to wear many hats and not compensated,,,
Purchasing/Service Manager (Former Employee) – Walton, KY – July 5, 2017
A typical day consists of a fast paced, go, go, go as soon as you enter the door ... until exhaustion sets in by the end of the work day. Giving 110% is never enough. Information is not fully shared where needed to allow one to do their best yet still expected to perform at 150%. Management not friendly at all ... always dismal & grim. A lot of walking on eggshells & whispering tones.

Senior Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Los Alamitos, CA – March 20, 2017
Good rapport with fellow sales and support personnel. Limited management sales support with pricing and strategy. Changing directions and go to market programs. Cumbersome credit process. Antiquated pricing system.
Trend Offset Printing is a good place to work for some people and not so much for others. If you are looking to advance in a position this may not be the place for you. although there is room for advancement it is not a easy task.
Great Manager occasional free lunches
not much room for advancement and slim chances of pay incerse

Project Manager and Training Development Manager (Former Employee) – Los Alamitos, CA – November 18, 2016
Trend is a vibrant and exciting place to work. The employees make the company what it is and the majority have a "can do" flexible, "get it done right" outlook and embrace opportunities for development and training. Employees appreciate frank and honest feedback and continually look for ways to improve both in performance and in procedure. Communication throughout the company needs further growth and development.
Trend's plusses are the fact that it is nimble and can change to provide a customer with what they want and need.
The hardest part of the job is to get buy in and peer acceptance from some of the longer serving managers.
Most enjoyable part of the job is when employees tell you that you have made a positive long lasting difference in their careers.
The printing industry has changed and Trend is positioned to meet these challenges head on. The current task of the company is to compete with the larger organizations that are providing the marketplace with a more engaging and focused offering.
My goal is to take my sales skills that I have honed throughout my career and apply those to a different, more thriving sales environment.
Great reputation and culture
Challenging marketplace for traditional printed products

General Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – July 25, 2016
When i first started working at Trend it was a new type of work for me . The more I worker there I learned from it . I've learned how to make books stack them in a correct order of number , know how to put each book in its correct spot . The hardest part of my job was keep them going without any jams .
Worker (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – May 18, 2015
A typical day at work is mostly putting out fires, a list of 100 items to do and after running around most of the day may be able to get 10 a day done. Understaffed so not much help but to do the best you can with what you can.
Always need people.
insurance gets more expensive each year and you almost have to beg for raises.
