I have been working at Journal Register full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great co-workers who try to support each other!

Cons

Can't make up their minds as to what product we are selling today. One day you will be saying your product is better then another and then the next month you will be trying to sell the product you were calling inferior before. They have too many products which confuse the customers!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micromanaging employees and give them better training and make up your minds what you want the company to represent!

    I worked at Journal Register full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Successfully managed a daily newspaper in Ohio with over a million in outstanding receivables. Ran all credit checks to determine credit worthiness, determined credit limits. Maintained aging with making advanced credit calls, placing accounts with appropriate collection agencies, determine and presented quarterly candidates for uncollectable write off.

    Cons

    Uncertainty within the company structure, Journal Register filed for bankruptcy protection and the possibility of the company closing its Michigan operations has loomed more than once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong detailed Bookkeeper AR / Credit analyst from the beginning of the loan or credit request using credit and financial software to determine the credit worthiness of the client. Monitoring Receivables and Credit within the organization and reporting to portfolio manager and upper management, along with appropriate credit reporting agency.
