Pressman (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – 2 August 2013
As a pressman we had to maintain and work on a printing press. From the control room we can adjust speed, quality control, color amount, water levels, etc. It was the brain of the press, I learned great management skills because I had my own team. My co workers for the most part were easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job was working on holidays being away from family at times. I enjoyed how there was always overtime in case we needed a little extra money.
Plenty of overtime, good value system, friendly management
All year round job, long shifts, stressful deadlines
Aquisition expansion with layoffs. Vultures mentality.
Graphics Department (Former Employee) – GTA Toronto – 14 December 2017
This company has a historic well documented take over of smaller companies followed by massive layoffs. They care about increasing profit margin by aggressive take over tactics that excludes employee security or future. Be prepared for phony job reviews revolving door strategies from existing middle managers and a culture of protectionism. Communication and transparency are non existent employees are frequently let go without cause. Jobs are labeled redundant so they can justify letting people go .....and a few days later re hire for the same position for less money or to move a full time position to part time and avoid paying benefits. There are additionally managers from other locations who are moved when their own branches are closed to arbitrarily take a position from another unsuspecting employee in a surviving branch ....it's all so medieval and draconian in it's approach. My honest appraisal is that you should not work for this company it is in decline.
