    Pros

    Dedicated co-workers; rewarding work; well-meaning middle management; better than it used to be

    Advice to Management

    Stick with what we do best; tell shareholders that they must choose between a company that provides an essential service with a modest profit or a few more years of big dividends

    I worked at Gannett as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Independent work. Sometimes lucrative bonuses appear if they're shorthanded. Tips. Managers do what they can but are limited.

    Cons

    Overnight hours. Contracts for "Community"/advertisement distribution to non customers twice a week are a large burden & not paid enough for the task. These contracts are required for accepting main contracts of neighborhood delivery. Rural areas may not require the non-customer advertisement contracts or delivery. Contracts for routes when divided by time & fuel/mile depreciation drag earnings to less than $10 an hour. Not a good result for working in the 2-6 am hours. Lots of miles to rack up weekly on rural routes. Difficult to find willing subs so almost never a day off.

    can't think of anything to say
