    Pros

    Nice plant with new technology installed in the pressroom. New plant management has good ideas and are helping to drive much needed change. Although different times all plant associates are treated well and with respect. New management has given me hope for future development since they look at skills and not seniority for advancement

    Cons

    Some of the long term people are ungrateful and have poor attitudes towards everything. Despite all the good things happening these people talk bad about supervisors and managers. I have personally heard to managers talking with people on the floor badly about another manager.

    Advice to Management

    New managers keep doing what you are doing and let's hope the old boys club of long term people start appreciating what you are doing to establish our success and a future long term

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Valassis (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I found the position via a job alert and applied online. About a week later, I was contacted via email and was asked for a telephone interview with one of their corporate recruiters. The telephone interview went very well, and I was told to expect a call back within a few days to set up an in-person interview. That call came within the timeline given, and the in-person interview was with two individuals, neither of whom were based out of the office where the position would be located. The interview lasted about 45 minutes, and was very behavioral-based. Both interviewers spent a lot of time writing down the answers to the questions they asked.
    I applied for a similar position with Valassis in 2012, and their process is virtually identical. My biggest criticism would be the lack of follow-through on the part of recruiting/HR when a candidate does not make it to the offer stage. I was not offered a position three years ago and I believe the same is true this time around. I badly wanted this job in 2012 and it took several attempts before I was finally told that I was not selected. My recent in-person interview took place a little over a week ago, and I have not heard one word, which is fine in this case because I've since accepted a position with a different company.
    A word of caution: Valassis has recently been acquired and is now going through the various pangs associated with an acquisition. At this time, the acquiring entity is maintaining separate domains/email addresses, databases, etc. I learned this during the in-person interview. However, I feel confident that the separation currently in place will not be the permanent business model they adopt. This is coming from the painful learning experience I've gone through after being laid off from two different companies, both as a result of post-acquisition reorganizations.
