Production Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Blue Bell, PA – September 17, 2013
Overall i like Yellow Pages Group. I learned much about print media in my 4 years here with the company. The work and the people i worked with are a great group of people. I am always fascinated with the people i have met in my IT career. I have been lucky to have worked with some of the best and brightest people along the way. Sadly the print media business is going away and has been replaced with more and more digital solutions. I would have to say the hardest part of my job will be not being able to work here with the people i have grown fond of over the years
close to home
not being able to finish my carreer with this company
Bilingual routing specialist (Former Employee) – Blue Bell, PA – December 2, 2015
This job was not bad but not great. The pay was wonderful but the job itself was boring. I sat in front of dual computer screens for 8 hours a day 5 days a week reviewing print ads in English and/or French. It got boring fast. There also didn't seem like much room for advancement.
Good coworkers, good pay, not too stressful
Short lunch, very rigid schedule, repetitive tasks
Graphics Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 13, 2015
Managed workflow process and day-to-day employee engagement and training. The environment was enjoyable, but some departments were not as connected as they could be due to the natural disconnect between locations. I learned a lot about how to apply Six Sigma processes in an office environment.
Senior Advertising Consultant (Current Employee) – St.louis, MO – September 22, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. The most enjoyable part of the job is working alongside my colleagues and learning from them.
Sterile work environment with little advancement opportunity
Listing Services Representative (Former Employee) – Blue Bell, PA – September 21, 2015
My department was in charge of setting up basic phone book entries with little to no advertisement attached. I sat in a cubicle with a stack of paper and typed the same information over and over. Talking was discouraged on the floor and employees were encouraged to wear headphones to listen to music. While I enjoyed being able to listen to my own music choices, I grew bored of the monotony day after day. The on location management did try to make things more lively. We had holiday parties when able and individual department managers brought in breakfast or dinner items if overtime was mandatory.
Account Executive/Sales (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – September 21, 2015
A typical day of work consisted on making calls to handle advertising campaigns for small and medium size businesses. I learned a lot about developing interpersonal relationships with clients while providing excellent consultation. On average, we would be required to handle a certain objective for each month. The hardest part of the job is the ability to overcome objections and the most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I helped a business continue to grow.
Loader/Clerk (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – August 13, 2015
Working with our carriers, making calls, inventory, and filing. I enjoyed this job for the most part, what got to me was the heat since this is a temporary summer job and it gets pretty hot. My boss albeit weird was a blast to work for.
Operations Manager - National Digital Operations (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – August 12, 2015
My experience in working at YP was very pleasant. Projects were regularly popping up which created opportunities for growth and new work experience. I was never held to one specific duty which eliminated the day to day monotony that is often found in a corporate environment.
community breakroom that is both tranquil and stimulating, depending upon which area you are visiting
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – March 16, 2015
After 27 year of working for myself, YP has given me a terrific transition into corporate life. My team is filled with super stars which we all greatly benefit from that environment. The perception of the book is the most challenging part of the business. Many people don't understand how the company has become a digital powerhouse. I mostly certainly feel my most satisfied when I call one of my new account holders and there company is over perform their expectations.
Productive and fun work enviroment with ping pong table
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) – birmingham Al – March 11, 2015
a typical day of work would be cold calling customer to be pentential advertisers for yp i learn how to sales and sales points i enjoy my fellow co workers and the hardest part of the job was to over come objections
Job was not what I was told it would be. Had to make cold calls to set appointments, rather than being in field. Had a $1,500/month goal for new money advertising sales. If quota not met, put on a three step improvement plan. Lots of stress, and when your pay is affected by customers who may or may not pay their bills (even though we were told "no charge backs), it is very frustrating. Good people to work with though, I think that we share a foxhole mentality, where we were all just looking to survive
set own schedule, meeting and helping small business owners
Media Consultant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 23, 2015
Yellow Book USA was a great company to work for. The skills you learn about face to face selling are great in current and future endeavors. A typical sales rep will call on 50-100 clients per day and visit 5-10 cleints per day as well. Yellow Book USA is a very fast paced enviroment and teaches you to use time management and organizational skills to the best of your abilities.
