    I have been working at Publishers Circulation Fulfillment as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Camaraderie, co-workers guidance, free water, warm, lighting.

    Cons

    Expected to deliver newspapers during Winter Storm Warning: Threat to life and property, even though per diem earnings are $10.60.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase wages of independent contractors whose delivery service the company owner depends for income. Stop charging for use of work area to bag newspapers. Provide at no cost to the independent contractors: the plastic bags that the newspapers are inserted into for delivery. At present, we contractors have to buy the bags from you to deliver the product.

    Pros

    Getting out to deliver the papers away from the depot as soon as possiable . get away from the management because of bad attitudes . If certain rules apply at the depoy then they should apply to all employees . having some bad apples in one basket doesnt mean that they are all bad .

    Cons

    Non informative management . They never answer their phone when called . Bad attitudes .If you were to put one person in a crowd with a bad attitude then it spreads to almost all the others in the room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the drift wood . Management does not appear to like their jobs at all. Could it possiably be that they are also non informed as well as the rookies are to.

    I worked at Publishers Circulation Fulfillment full-time

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've ever worked with. Always felt like my option was valued whether or not it was agreed with. I believe the position is work from home now.

    Cons

    They provide a company cell phone so you're always on call. Went through a tough time and laid off many employees. I suppose many companies did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the image of transparency in management and value the opinions of staff.

    I have been working at Publishers Circulation Fulfillment as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As an independent contractor the hours work for me

    Cons

    The employees of PCF (mgt.) are phony, thoughtless,and vindictive. If I did not need the additional income right now I would dump it in a heartbeat. They know how to manipulate the system so that the carriers continually show complaints and the tips are handled poorly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than worry about profit---- try treating your staff & carriers with dignity and respect and I can guarantee you that your profits will increase. When people are treated decently then they will go the extra mile for you and care about how they do the job.

    I have been working at Publishers Circulation Fulfillment full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There were no cons to this job, except having a job in this terrible economy.

    Cons

    Below average pay, horrible work morale environment, dishonest and fraudulent business practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont inherit the job as President / Owner from your dead husband. You ran the company into the ground due to your high level of ignorance and conceit and low levels of business accumen and strategy

    I worked at Publishers Circulation Fulfillment

    Pros

    Initially, PCF was a great place to work. It's a family-owned business and had a very laid-back feeling and was actually fun.

    Cons

    The Executive Leadership team hired a tyrant of a woman to act as CFO and she brought a lot of tension and negativity into the office. Major authoritarian. On top of the fun being completely sucked out of the place, the company had a knack for promoting "favorites" and brown-nosers, who weren't qualified for their positions, and not promoting the quieter people who knew what they were doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out of your a$$es.
