    Pros

    Great Regional Vice President, opportunities to make great money

    Office culture different in each market. Training process could be upgraded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no micro-managing, they promote to work independently once you are appropriately trained.

    Pros

    Monday-Friday work week, 8-5.

    MICRO MANAGED to the max!! Tulsa's office has a revolving door. Don't waste your time!! You will regret it! Verbally abused and bullied by coworker until I finally quit!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never put your eggs all in one basket. The verbal abuse & bullying needs to stop! Management start listening!

    Terrible workplace. Treated like a child rather than a professional with experience & education. Poor work-life balance.

    I worked at Job News full-time

    Pros

    Great clients! Good product, needed product, but methodology of call center selling is mundane, limited, and outdated.

    Cons

    Deemed as outside sales, but sales managers are not given autonomy and respect to manage their own time or do the job in the best possible ways. Really just a call-center and clients despise call centers. Unproductive method of selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat outside sales managers with respect, foster the client/sales rep relationship and relationship building with community leaders and business will absolutely grow. Treat your sales managers like children, do not foster the idea of client relations outside of cold-calls, manage their time, rather than allowing them autonomy to do the job successfully, and all you have is a call center with extremely minimal results.

    Former Employee - General Manager in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Job News full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good Hours, lots of time off, great people in most offices. Management is always willing to help.
    Competitive pay structure, Job Fairs are a great incentive to staff to make money and contacts.

    Cons

    Intercompany politics and poorly defined territories. Advertising in print is a dying industry, the company could and should focus on more high tech solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a test work from home environment forthe employees. Too much money is spent on offices.

    Can be a fun place to work, but it depends on the city you work in. Some cities are good, but others...

    Current Employee - Graphic Artist in Louisville, KY

    I have been working at Job News

    Pros

    They hire people right out of college with little or no experience. Especially in the production/design department, that is rare to find in other companies. Management is flexible in giving time off or changing your schedule to accommodate second jobs, school schedules, family issues, etc.

    Cons

    The pay is poor and the raises promises are taken away if the company isn't doing well. The graphics department is the least acknowledged, least rewarded department in the company. Management is incompetent, unreasonable, sketchy, and generally apathetic to the genuine concerns of the employees. Bad behavior and dishonest actions by middle management is allowed by upper management simply because its easier to ignore it than to deal with it. Ridiculous, immature behavior from employees is catered to. Those employees that work hard, are honest, professional, and dependable are not rewarded and seldom acknowledged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The major problem with this company is the wrong people holding management positions.

    I have been working at Job News full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job News sells recruitment advertising and you can sell pretty much any product, from digital to print to Job Fairs to broadcast. The hours are not demanding, you can work as little as 36 hours, or as many as you want.

    Cons

    It is a real sales organization, so if you don't want to do sales, this is not the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting from within (which they do pretty well). Also, "Service Center" can be poor on the service aspect, this could definitely use some improvement.
