Digital Media Designee (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – December 22, 2018
I would highly recommend to stay away from this company it your an artist. Management will present your ideas and give you little to no credit. If you enjoy not talking to people all day long and being a robot this is a great place for you. No incentive for going above and beyond.
Meetings held on Monday's within just your team management just talks about numbers yet when you ask what they mean they have little to no explanation of why you would want better numbers. Management have no clue what's going on with the company and won't inform it's employees.
You don't receive any type of incentive to go above and beyond. Raises are not based on an individual basis but on a group basis so your ability to move up from doing more ads each day is irrelevant. Sometimes you don't receive raises that year.
It's a great place to work if your looking to do much of nothing with your design career. For the first 6 -7months of this position I was sat at a desk and very rarely talked to.
Work environment, No growth, High turnover rate, Poor communication
BUSINESS SYSTEMS ANALYST (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 20, 2018
Overall, Gannett has been declining for the past 10 years. It continues to make decisions that ultimately will eliminate the paper in print form, and thereby laying off hundreds of people. Most of the decisions made by the CEO's and higher ups in the company are detrimental to the people who work at the sites. And they keep getting thousands of dollars in bonuses at the end of the year. And now, at the end of this year, they are laying off all of the IT personnel to outsource those jobs to a company in India. Terrible place to be right now.
comparable healthcare, good benefits
too many bonuses for the higher ups, and too many layoffs, No increase in compensation for 5 years straight., Information about the company is not shared with employees
Designer/Page editor (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 29, 2018
I used to love my job but the role I ended with a few years after I started was completely different than the role I was hired for. I was expected to do about 3 times as much work by the end of my run as I was doing at the beginning; I received two raises over the time span each of less than a quarter an hour. The morale in the studio dropped exponentially over the last year and I basically got to the point where I wanted to quit before anyone else on my team could because I wasn't sure I could take on any more work; they've stopped hiring replacements for people who quit. It breaks my heart because I loved my boss and my manager but I got to the point where I dreaded going to work every day.
Administrative Assistant/Support Specialist (Former Employee) – 110 Fredericks St suite 400 Greenville SC 29607 – January 3, 2019
The enjoyable part of the job is meeting customers and providing excellent service. Typical day at work is basically the same thing daily sorting mailers, Positive work place attracts happiness and satisfaction. I love my job because everyone is dedicated to the mission and enjoy helping others. Management shows great concerns when dealing with something fragile.
Generous coworkers, management, and great teamwork.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – July 13, 2018
A typical day at work is getting on the phone and assisting customers with their billing, delivery service, subscriptions, etc. The peak hours are from 8AM-12PM. Management is very understanding if you can’t handle stressful situations easily. Work with them and they can work with you. Can make over $500 in commission. Workplace culture is excellent, food truck on paydays, and other special events. The hardest part of the job is not having control of delivery service. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to turn a frustrated customer into a happy customer.
Designer I (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 27, 2018
As a newspaper designer, your hours are not the greatest. Our studio had a great workplace culture and my boss is the best in the industry. It's hard to move up, you have to put in heaps of time to make the smallest more forward. Raises are small and done only on a yearly basis.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Green Bay, WI – June 25, 2018
I worked 8 hour shifts with commission paid monthly and regular paychecks bi-weekly so I always had money to spare. Work is fast-paced and customers are calling you, so no "call center" vibe. We do have to call out to customer who left messages to be called, not to random "potential customers" who may or may not want us to call. All in all, this is a great place to work if you enjoy assisting and communicating with customers.
Tons of paid vacation, health benefits & 401K, flexible time off
current manditory overtime and over 130 newspapers to keep track of
Unorganized, Negative, Unsafe, Does not value employees, terrible management
Assistant District Manager (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – August 16, 2018
Gannett is supposed to be a goal oriented company. This job requires long hours, overnight, and risking yourself getting hurt specially when it snows. There are no opportunities for advancement, the pay is not good, and the people are very difficult to work with. A typical day includes tons of driving in dangerous neighborhoods. While this has been an experience that I've never had, the environment is not a welcome one. As a manager, you work in very close quarters with the other managers, and unfortunately this company does not provide management training or require regular evaluations of employees, making it hard to work as a group. Horrible place to work at.
Trainer (Current Employee) – Greenville, SC – June 20, 2018
Anyone that has worked in a call center will tell you they can be stressful. Gannett truly dose a wonderful job of keeping the stress level as low as possible. Gannett’s management and support staff seem to really care about your success, there are challenges as with any company but I never feel overwhelmed or stressed out. The vacation time and benefits are good and the customers although challenging at times are mostly calling about the same thing. This is a great place to work!!
Training Assistant (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – December 19, 2018
This job was stressful but offered great benefits and commission structures! The commission was good and enough to take care of my family. I would not recommend for people that have low tolerance or stress levels
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Ft. Lauderdale, FL. – May 24, 2018
The hardest part of the job was working with the other consultants who made more money than you.
The head office is in Pennsylvania and those in Florida are a clique by themselves. The direct managers are so far down on the hierarchy, they are basically at the mercy of people who are out of touch with the situations we face in Florida.
This company was the first I have worked with that each division is charged for their expenses.
it was enjoyable to have decent benefits.
Decent benefits, health & 401K
Salary does not match up to what other companies are paying
This company is stressful to work for. The managers take you as a joke and don't to do they jobs. Well there is three supervisors who are great they will do what they have to do to help the next person if they can. They don't promote you only look out for their close friends who has been with the company for 10 plus years. There is nothing to enjoy about this job unless you enjoy being mistreated. They don't give raises.
