    Pay more attention to which employees are there to do their job versus the employees who just show up and do the bare minimum.

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics part-time

    Pros

    Pays well for a summer job, especially when doing overtime. If you work part time, you can sign up for as many days as you want (I would work 6 days a week, 12 hours a day). Increase in pay almost every year you return.

    Cons

    Night shift, and standing on feet gets tiring (but you get used to it). Still, easier than other manual labor jobs offered.

    Pros

    The people are family. The work atmosphere is awesome. Management is down to earth. The pay is decent and the benefits are good. Good place to work.

    Cons

    The temperature in both summer and winter. Not climate controlled. No smoking on the property. Some don’t like the rotating shifts.

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People that I've worked with over the years, the old work schedule 3 days on 4 days off and vice versa. Job security. Pay gets better over time.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to workers, they whittle away and little benefits that made the company separate from others. We no longer manage from the floor and the bean counters run the company into the ground. The word of new people is taken before any of the veterans word no matter what. New people are more concerned with when their break is instead on concentrating on doing a good job and learning even though they get their breaks.

    Advice to Management

    It takes 4 people to replace an operator if they quit but if 1 person that comes into the company decides to quit because its just not for them thats just one person, take care of your experienced people and the new ones will see that and stay like years ago. Hold the new people more accountable and stop letting them run all over the company.

    Pros

    The innovative thinking of the management is great. The benefits are pretty good. Company is always thinking of the future and making things better.

    Cons

    Any company has a few negative people that are hard to deal with at times. Every month there are quizzes to take no matter how busy you are but they don’t take long to do. And the quizzes do count towards the yearly raise.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can think of.
