    Building Community on the USA TODAY NETWORK Sales Team

    At USA TODAY NETWORK, our sales team makes staying on top of new product advances and finding innovative ways to overcome challenges in the digital media industry look easy - but in reality, each individual's success would not be possible without the support of their teammates.

  • AT USA TODAY NETWORK we believe that failure is a learning experience—not an opportunity to downgrade our standards. We encourage our team members to set the bar high and take risks in their careers without fear.

    These are a few of the ways that our team refocuses and bounces back after facing failure.

    How to Deal With Failure, From Two People Who Have Made it to the Other Side

    When it comes to failure, there are plenty of things you expect. A bruised and deflated ego, for one, plus plenty of wallowing, pity parties, a hefty dose of uncertainty, and maybe one too many pints of Ben and Jerry's. There's no doubt about it- failure can be brutal.

Our History.

Gannett Co. Inc. traces its origins to 1906, when founder Frank E. Gannett and his associates bought a half interest in upstate New York's Elmira Gazette. From that point on, Gannett continued to acquire and oversee multiple local newspapers along the Northeastern United States, and eventually throughout the country. In 1982, Gannett created USA TODAY, a national newspaper that approached content and design in a bold new way.

On August 5, 2014, Gannett announced it was splitting into two separate organizations. The former head of U.S. Community Publishing, Robert Dickey, was named to lead the new Gannett as its president and CEO. This split has allowed us the freedom to explore brand new content and storytelling methods through existing, emerging, and ‘not-yet-invented’ technologies. That’s where you come in!

 

Giving Back.

Gannett Foundation

Since its founding nearly 20 years ago, Gannett Foundation — with the help of Gannett employees — has given more than $171 million to thousands of charitable projects across the U.S. and the U.K. Last year alone Gannett Foundation made more than 1,000 grants and matched more than 3,900 employee donations to non-profits for a total of $6.9 million.

And we will be launching A Community Thrives in 2016, which opens up opportunities for all communities to get involved in using creative thinking to solve our nations issues, backed by us.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Gannett (Livonia, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, management interview, assessment test - if they like you, interview with president of sales division. The overall experience was not horrible. The assessment tests were pretty difficult.
