The worse place ever.
Legal Clerk (Former Employee) –  Neptune, NJJuly 15, 2018
Poor training, poor management, over worked and under paid. Management really does not have your best interests. Management is caddy and petty. Management like to exercise control tactics on employees, they are awful. People resign regularly some don't even give notice.

Generous coworkers, management, and great teamwork.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCJuly 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.
Pros
Easy commission, management, pay, benefits!!!!
Cons
Short breaks, no control over service

A great place to work but...
N/A (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJuly 12, 2018
I've enjoyed my time at Gannett, but the industry is challenged and job security at Gannett is not what it once was. They've had to let go of a lot of great talent and go younger as well as outsource.
Pros
Flexible schedules, hours, vacation benefits and culture
Cons
Heathcare, job security.

Gannett Change
Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 9, 2018
The nature of the business has changed to the point where Gannett being a great company to work for was reduced to a workforce with overwhelming demands.

Okay place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  VirginiaJuly 6, 2018
Okay place to work with okay benefits, management seems a bit out of touch, job security is not great for those looking for long term, 5+ years. Work life balance is a bit below average.

Great people but corporate is out of touch
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 3, 2018
Not that great of a place. Commotion structure is terrible. Al'll they care about is calls. Even when you're killing it but down on calls they are more made about the calls. Their priorities aren't great.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Almost nothing else is that great

A Great Place To Work!
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WIJune 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.
Pros
Tons of paid vacation, health benefits & 401K, flexible time off
Cons
current manditory overtime and over 130 newspapers to keep track of

A wonderful call center
Trainer (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCJune 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!!

Inserter Operator (Current Employee) –  Fond du Lac, WIJune 15, 2018
Not really a good team oriented company . Over worked and under paid. Don't like to give raises. Don't like that they don't give you any chances to learn something new

Don't work there
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Naples FlJune 14, 2018
A terrible place to work. Management shows favoritism to certain sales people and the rest starve. They do not care about their clients at all. A lot of training takes takes you off the street. Must be proficient in Salesforce!

Advertising/Digital Director - The News-Star (Former Employee) –  Monroe, LAMay 31, 2018
I had a very satisfying career with Gannett. They are very forward thinking and manage themselves very well. The overall size of the company allows them to be more cutting edge than most media companies.

Glass Ceiling
Analyst II (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 28, 2018
With this company what you put in is what you will get out of it. Apply yourself and seek training and you can advance. Depending on the department the workplace culture changed. Some departments were geared towards a fun environments and some departments were much more sedate. Plenty of training opportunity available in the call centers. Human resources were supportive. Worked long days and had flex time which was appreciated. I had many great managers and some mediocre managers that were still learning how to become great managers. The hardest part of the job was the glass ceiling

Enjoyable and productive
Mailer Assistant (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 25, 2018
Productive and fun workplace... I learned how to socialize with people and to disclose to others. The hardest part of the job is because they always have overtime while I have school in the morning, and sometimes I work too much while others are doing nothing.
Pros
variable shifts
Cons
Overtime, Healthcare, no promotion
