    Pros

    The company has great training and the people that work there really are great. Corporate is in upstate New York and the people are all very friendly and great. There is potential to make a lot of money and they also have some pretty cool perks when you hit presidents club.
    They are moving their business model to include a bunch of great internet/computer products.

    Cons

    They place a lot of emphasis on Print Advertising which I believe is a dying industry. However, they are ramping up their internet and computer based offerings and if they can get those flying -- there will be a huge opportunity for growth.
    The only way to promote above a Regional Manager position is to move to the corporate HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Give more paid vacation -- its hard to plan all of my vacation around the holiday shut down.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Book Network Contractors Register (Jefferson Valley, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for a position internally by submitting a career opportunity form and my resume. It took well over three months to be called for an interview! After the first interview, I had to wait almost two more months for the second interview, during which the position was described quite differently than the job description that was posted on our internal HRIS system. It was really frustrating to wait so long for a response, and then find out it was all for nothing. They ended up not even hiring anyone for the position, and shortly after the entire department was restructured.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked why I wanted the position, and they explained in detail what the position entailed, what it could become, and what the position used to be previously as it hasn't been filled in several years. The initial description was something I wanted, but turned out to be more copy based than anything. I was also asked to think about if it was the right fit, and what my long-term goals were.   1 Answer
