Gannett – Why Work For Us?


Join our NETWORK

At the USA TODAY NETWORK, we don't just understand the different paths people take in life, we celebrate them. We empower communities to connect, act, and thrive.

The NETWORK's goal is to be essential to consumers and marketers seeking meaningful connections with their communities. Our diverse voices, backgrounds, and specialties are fundamental to achieving it.

Inclusion

The quality that makes you different or unique - whether that be your age, education, ethnicity, gender, language, disability status, national origin, parental status, race, religion, sexual orientation, work style or anything else - is celebrated here.

Leveraging that diversity by creating a culture where everyone feels safe, welcome, valued, included, and comfortable being who they are increases our talent and contributions while keeping us accountable in embracing differences and perspectives.

Internships

Taste-test your career in digital media with a USA TODAY NETWORK internship. Learn, grow and develop a network with teams across departments. An internship with us provides the opportunity to work on the forefront of media technology, make meaningful connections with peers and leaders in the industry, and find new perspectives on the world.

Your Balance

Work. Life. Balance. A concept that can be elusive at some companies, but is central to our culture. For instance, in addition to our regular PTO program, we offer 6 weeks of Paid Parental Leave, regardless of gender - well above the national average. The Gannett Foundation has three ways to support you in supporting others: help your child's college fund by applying for the Madelyn P. Jennings Scholarship Awards, double your charitable giving with the Matching Gifts Program, and/or get up to 10 extra hours of PTO for volunteering at a charitable organization.

And if that wasn't enough, the YouDecide Employee Discount Program offers discounts on everything from cell phone plans to gym memberships. We also offer Military Leave, Caregiver Leave, Business Travel Accident Insurance, and many other ways for you to tip the scales in your favor in a career with USA TODAY NETWORK.

    I have been working at Gannett full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I say this in total honesty - this is the job I've been looking for. Management is caring and understanding. They help you every step of the way when you need it. The training programs they have get you to where you want to be in your career. Gannett is a very open environment that's laid back and comfortable. I'd recommend working here if you have the chance.

    Cons

    I only have two real picks, and they're not huge at all. The bathrooms are way too small for how many people work here. Also, the water machines are awful. Other than that, no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're all great coaches and you keep doing great every day.

    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.
