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.
Many Gannett employees make the world a better place by volunteering in their own communities. They conduct food, clothing and shoe drives, donate thousands of books to the local schools and libraries, collect gifts for needy children during the holidays and raise money for many important causes.
Millions of people, including Gannett employees, and many businesses come together on the fourth Saturday in October to participate in Make A Difference Day. It is the largest national day of helping others and is sponsored by USA WEEKEND and its 700 carrier newspapers.
I worked at USA Today full-time (More than 10 years)
Good comraderie in the newsroom
Shrinking resources; periodic layoffs and buyouts
I applied in-person. I interviewed at USA Today.
Interview went well. Until the recruiter looked as my resume and I was asked my age. Isn't that illegal? I ended up telling him and I never got a call back.
