I worked at Gannett full-time

Pros

There are no pros. You are sold in the interview and the job is not what you accept.

Cons

The hours are non-stop. Salaried employees hours are nickled and dimed. Don't take this job and expect to work close to 40 hours. 50 or more. Vacation time is often denied or not allowed to take previously approved time. Staff is not respected and are of no concern to management. If you are looking for employment and are currently employed - don't leave your current position for this.

Advice to Management

Start over. The work experience is the worst I have ever heard of in any corporate position.

    I worked at Gannett full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large company, with a national impact. No matter what your function, the news business is always busy, many opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    The print business is contracting, makes for a lot of morale problems. If you're considering taking a job here, make sure it is very involved in non-print divisions.

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

    Pros

    Great Base Salary. Local Territory.

    Cons

    No ramp up period for goals in a declining print market with tons of advertising competition. If you don't meet your goal on your first time out you are automatically placed on a PIP. Tons of training material with little instruction.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money training people and not giving them a chance to perform. If a new rep came on board and did just as much or more than a senior rep does, why would you keep your senior reps? It took time for your senior reps to perfect their skills, just as it is going to take time for a new rep.
