    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are young, you are good.

    Cons

    20+ years of my life given to RRD and taken away in a minute. Administrators, Supervisors, Management and Executives only care about filling their pockets. Don't think for one second that RRD cares about your future or the future of your family because they have destroyed my life and the life of my family. If you are offered a "package deal", make sure you read it very carefully and seek the advice of an attorney.. because I can assure you, you have a case.

    Advice to Management

    Start seeing your employees as family, you do spend more time with the people you work than you do with the ones at home.

    Pros

    Some good people on the floor.

    Cons

    No real communication production manager sleeps in truck at least 2 or more hrs a day

    Treat workers with some respect .

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, knowledgeable co-workers, nice lobby

    Cons

    I was not given the tools necessary to perform my job. Six weeks into my assignment I still did not have an effectively functioning computer. Nor the program accesses I needed.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the tools they need to do their jobs. Look at why IT can't get a laptop and program access to a new hire in under 6 weeks.

    Pros

    I've made plenty of friends that I'm still friends with today.

    Cons

    Oh boy where to start. Management sucks. They've been purposely targeting me, preventing me from getting any higher up positions because I question them. High turnover rate because they keep everyone one constant overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of having two 10 hour shifts, how about bringing in a third shift. Instead of just having one department with three shifts and and have everyone else constant 10s. That's why there's such a high turnover rate.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job because everything goes slow and most likely everyone keeps up with their slow pace

    Cons

    Basically everything else..... I was terminated for leaving early just because someone told management I was looking for another job.I did not go over my points in their points system or told Management I was looking for another job.Never got any feedback on the month that I was working there. Managers nitpicking and blaming employees for their lack of efficiency was obvious.Team leaders dont get paid enough to care my team leader said multiples times he doesn't care in start up. I was forced to stay a couple of times without notice just told i need this done before u leave at the time of leaving. If u end up working here please do yourself a favor and look for something permanent as I only knew around 5 people that where not working for a temp agency.If u have other options DO NOT WORK HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees.Hire people through the company instead of temp agency because the term temp job works both ways at least for smart people which is what u want.And pay more to the team leaders so they care about making happend if they get a dollar over a driver they will not care as I experience with the team leaders myself while working there.

    Treat people fairly, quit listening to unfounded gossip and punishing people for it!
