Production Technician (Former Employee) – Austell, GA – July 13, 2018
This is a warehouse with very old machines that break down a lot. There’s no AC, so imagine working there in the heat of the summer. They’re only advice to you is to stay hydrated. You’re on your feet in the gear for about 10 1/2 of the 12 hour shifts.
Focus on socially getting family and friends too work together. Instead of correcting problems with in the company

Field Account Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 14, 2018
I was supporting several sales reps and tons of accounts. One of the sales reps was extremely disorganized which made my job hard. The other sales reps were on the golf course or goofing off most of the time and I did all the work running their clients' ad campaigns. I worked from home quite a lot which I enjoyed but also very long hours. They changed their policy and started to require account coordinators to go into the office which seemed like a huge waste of time for me when I could be at home working in my shorts instead of commuting. I never got a raise in the time I worked there.
We had a great group in accounting. Managers and staff genuinely cared for one another. Managers treated staff with respect and in returned earned their trust and dedication. Workload depended on closing or non-closing timeframes. Closing deadlines were tight with longer hours while non-closing hours were somewhat regular. Workload was distributed by associate with new assignments added as proficiency and knowledge grew.

Valassis was once a great place to work. Recent business decisions have led to headcount reductions, forcing remaining employees to do more with less. The business is suffering because of it and revenues are drastically lower than expected/normal.

Regional Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – April 3, 2018
Valassis offered some good learnings in audience data and targeting at the household level. I worked with great people and learned about large enterprise sales. Where Valassis struggled for some tine, was to find a solid digital solution outside the CPG coupon redemption model. Digital consumer data was dumbed-down to the household level to mirror legacy direct response newspaper and direct mail platforms.
Do not work here. RUN! No room for advancement. There is always unnecessary change, management is horrible and doesn’t have clear direction. They want to give you a smaller job title so they can pay you less than you deserve.
Client Media Coordinator (Former Employee) – Commerce, CA – March 22, 2018
The work is entertaining to say the least. There is opportunity to learn and improve your skills unfortunately there is nowhere to go with your improved skills. They pay was definitely fair in a good way.
Valassis has a great consumer focus, for external clients. As a result of acquisitions; the Company is going through a reorganization and eliminating the positions of many long-term associates in CT & MI. Jobs are being moved to TX and employees are being hired at at lower pay grade with fewer accrued benefits.
