It was a great position to get to know the clients and build a fabulous working relationship. responsible to find new business in assigned areas and that could be a little challenging but was designed for a culture of working with peers to not over step on each other.

Graohics and Data Entry Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 7, 2016
Yellow Book closed the West coast division down in 2007. it was very challenging meeting he deadlines for print. we had over 330 titles printed each year. I managed both graphic and data entry departments. keeping up with deadlines, accuracy and quality checks as well as design of the ads. The company started out as a little directory printer. So, most of the original management team were very close and had a clear picture of where they wanted the business to go. At that time it was TransWestern Publishing. Yellow Book purchased it in 2006 and they closed the facility down in 2007.
Very good learning experience and long term career

Senior Budget Analyst (Current Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – March 7, 2016
A typical day at works consists of me providing numerous financial reports to various departments. Management and my co-workers are very helpful and we all work as team. I enjoy what I do, therefore there are no hard parts to my job. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to provide meaningful analysis to other departments.
Call Center Specialist (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – March 3, 2016
It was a great company, too bad they are falling apart. they care about their employees and they are very active in the community but they are not growing at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with the public and coworkers.

I have been employed at this company formerly know as YellowBook USA for for the past ten years, and in that time i have survived multiple layoffs and have worked under different managers. I have no real review to give other than I believe it is time for me to look elsewhere for employment.
Sr. Financial Analyst/Archival Library Manager (Former Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – January 5, 2016
I enjoyed the people I worked with. I was there approx 5.5 years and you could tell the morale was slowly deflating. I was released as a reduction in work force, otherwise I probably wouldn't have left on my own.
Advertising Account Executive (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – January 3, 2016
The locally owned company I worked for was bought out by this company. They treated the sales team like garbage. They demoted my sales manager (of 10 years) and let some very talented and experienced sales reps go. I couldn't take the way we were treated so I jumped ship.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Lake City, FL – January 2, 2016
It is a job for a sucker.You use your car, Your gas, Your cell phone. Not to mention wear and tear on your car. A route so large you can not finish it in the time limit they want. If it is not done in their unreasonable time limit or manor that they set you. You do not get payed. If you ask for an extension and finish. You make $1.79 an hour After gas. You can not though them in the drive. You must walk them up to the door. If one person calls and tells them they found it in there drive or complanes for any thing. You do not get payed for the whole route. They hold your pay for one week then deposit it on a card that you have to pay to get your money out. This job is easy to get and not hard work. But you will not make money no matter how hard you try. Most routes require two people at the same rate of pay as one. They will hire anyone stupid enough to agree or desperate for a job.This is a scam don't do it.
I loved the people I worked with and helping people find a job.

Billing Assistant (Former Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – December 2, 2015
Being my first corporate job experience, the company really opened my eyes as to how a large organization operates. My internship position provided me with great experience in regards to billing and invoice management. I have to say the culture could have been a little more positive - but a great opportunity for those first starting out in their careers.
