There were simply too few people in my department, yet we were consistently given more and more to do as time went on. Multiple people were having panic attacks at work daily, yet you were just told to "get it done" when you asked for help, despite being told to ask for help. I can only hope things go uphill there, for the sake of my coworkers that I liked.
The company does provide a very laid back culture. However, they are constantly changes ideas and never keeping up to date on sales training with products. They simply say "here is a new product, talk to customers about it" without properly training employees on the topics. Management always has some sort of excuse as to why they haven't yet or when they might do something yet nothing ever comes from these statements.
no advancement; no sales training; not much direction
You will never make enough to make ends meet. Once you start selling to larger accounts they will strip them away and leave you with failing accounts. No advancement....RUN!!!!!
Low Salary, Poor Health Insurance, Uncertainty
Call center supervisor emailed me informing the first five days of short-term disability must be PTO/vacation days. And even though I followed her instructions and emailed confirmations to everyone that I put it in, they did not pay me. Something is very wrong when the company you work for does not pay you and/or does not pay you in full and on time. I was an actual employee - not a volunteer. All they care about is hitting their sales goals. Apparently, they could care less about you actually getting paid. When I asked the call center supervisor (same person) if she wanted to answer my questions, she said no. And because of their failure to pay me, I started looking at everything and found out they were overcharging me for parking ever since the day I was hired. They had to refund me more than $200 for overages. And I was not the only person being overcharged/duped. I warned my coworkers, so they could review their paychecks and get refunds where necessary. When you overcharge people that much for so long, it's not an accident. Let this be a warning to you to stay away. I wish someone had told me to stay away.
Although challenging, Gannett was not a company that I would recommended someone to work for. A typical day involved many needless conference calls that took away from the work at hand, which had very tight deadlines. The management was acceptable, yet stressed as well. The most difficult part of the job was handling the tight deadlines, especially if they were last minute while traveling. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning Social Media advertising.

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Gannett?
We logged into our PC and checked our emails,and sign into our assigned campaign and made our calls. Our atmosphere was very laid back. We had very knowledgeable and understanding supervisors, who didn't police you ,(for lack of a better term) but gave you space to learn. We would meet up with our supervisor weekly in thew beginning to go over our overall performance on our calls. To see if we needed improvement or just to congratulate us on over coming objectives.
Laid back atmosphere, vac, personal days, weekends off
A typical day at work would be making over 100 calls a day trying to sell the enquirer. I learned how to deal with people problems and all types of different people. Management was good at Gannett. They worked with everyone and they gave us prizes for accomplishing goals.
great co- workers, great supervisors
no job security, no job advancment
