Client Coordinator (Former Employee) – Commerce, CA – September 28, 2017
There are a lot of "systems" to learn, and can be very stressful. The job is very complex and you need to be able to juggle multiple things at the same time. They make it difficult to have your own opinions. There is a lot of "standardization" in process. The job is challenging and you can learn a lot. The best part of the job is the people you work with. Another great thing is working independently without being micro-managed.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 26, 2017
Flexible work environment Extremely strong culture Motivated associates who care about the well being of each other Fast paced and rewarding work environment.
OH REALLY Super supportive environment, they really care about work life balance, competitive starting salary! Depending on your supervisor/manager you have a lot of room to solve your own problems! The people are super friendly and helpful to each other.
Free coffee, popcorn soda/snacks vending machine, well organize and clean breakroom.
Breaks for 3 shorts 15mins and for lunch a 30mins lunch. Exstremely heathcare. Etc
Marketing and Analysis Intern (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – September 13, 2017
The Marketing and Analysis Internship, this year, was comprised of creating 155 print quality maps from shapefile for the marketing department using ArcGIS Desktop. This internship project had previously used a different GIS software so the maps and legends were just amended every year instead of created. On a shortened time table I attempted to complete as many as I possibly could as quickly as I could. I was so focused on creating maps that, at night, I was even dreaming about working on them. Everyone I worked with and came in contact with at Valassis were helpful and friendly. The culture is very inclusive and everyone seemed to want each other to succeed in their endeavors. Helping other employees was always encouraged by management.
Great Place To Work but Very Competitive Environment
National Accounts Manager (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – September 13, 2017
This is a wonderful place to work. The company provides the employees with great benefits and training essential to succeed in your role. However, the company has been bought out and new policies have been enforced, departments have been abolished, which interrupts workflow due to having to re-learn new processes and procedures.
In Sales, a lot of flexibility and the ability to work from home
No day with this company was the same as a press assistant you were reasonable for many job, a lot of moving around many things to learn.The job was somewhat dangerous you had to be paying attention at all times and have the ability to handle different tasks and one time.

Assistant General Counsel (Former Employee) – Worthington, OH – August 23, 2017
Valassis is a great place to work! Great work-life balance and great flexibility. Learnt a lot from my mentors and got a wide variety of experience in HR, tax, finance and legal areas. Very fortunate to work for them.
head press operator (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – August 18, 2017
Valassis is a decent place to work. It must be ,I worked there 30 plus years. Like many corporations today they are trying to save as money as possible. So the employees are not given the benefits they once were given.
12 Hour swing shifts--12 hous nights one week, 12 hours days the next
Sales Director (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – August 17, 2017
Overall good company, lacks clear direction at times and investment in leaders and people lacking to support lofty growth expectations. Still heavily dependent on print, and must quickly replace print revenue with new viable digital offerings. Work/Life balance and compensation are good, and most people are great.
Good compensation, people, and decent benefits
Constant changes and huge growth expectations with little investment
the hardest and enoyable part of work and what i learned
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 3, 2017
I learned how to keep my area neat. How to put papers in a nice stack.The hardest part of the job was to get the machine running with out stopping. Fining the right papers. I enjoyed working there because you can make it fun and it was very calm.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT – July 7, 2017
I enjoyed my years at Valassis. Had my job not been eliminated I would still be there. I learned alot in my 25 years there. The salary was fair, it could have been better but the benefits were great so it helped. We would be busy with our ads approving and making last minute changes. The hardest part of my job was trying to meet our tight deadline. The most enjoyable part was working with a great team,
Bosses dont like over achievers and play favorites.
Operator Technician (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 14, 2017
Not a good place to work, they play favoritism and treat other ppl like garbage no matter if you are one of the best operators in the building. They give all the jobs to the ppl they want wether you qualify or have seniority. Overall rating a 2 at best.
One 10 minute break and a 30 minute lunch. No cellphone usage at all not even for emergency.
