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
Lots of responsibility, (based on abilities, not necessarily interests). Some forward-moving avenues / departments. Strong industry name. Casual work environment. Many good employees (but they don't necessarily stay long).
Boys' club mentality. Still insecure about historical reputation of company. Clueless, inexperienced management, confusing age with management skills. No expectation of employee growth or escalation.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at USA Today.
Applied through the online process. Made it through the first round and then had to do a sample piece. Writers obviously write an article, visual applicants submit a photo, graphic, drawing, etc. They give you instructions. There's also a phone interview.
