Senior Consultant - National Publishing (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 May 2018
Once on position with experience it's like a well oiled machine. everything just flows. There's such a variety of activities and departments which depend on each other to provide appropriate results. Time fly's and the co-workers & managers are great.
Great employer, trying hard to return to profitable growth
Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 April 2018
Great people and the job is fantastic. Solid benefits, reasonable salary. Company has struggled to reverse declining revenue but is making strides by focusing product offerings, revising sales strategies, and being aggressive with cost cutting and right-sizing staff.
Financial stability of the company was not trending upwards
Customer Service Representativec (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 23 March 2018
You can see the public financial reports and the direction of the company online. The company itself was great to work for but the decisions made by management allowed competition to close the gap on products offered.
Great middle management but business has lost direction
Senior Listing Services Representative (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 March 2018
Working at YP was great while it lasted, my colleagues and management team helped me grow and acquire countless skills. However the business is taking a direction where the reaction to short-term challenges is worsening the long-term challenges that are key to a successful digital transition for the business. The only certitude at YP is chaos.
Good benefits, positive management style
Broken corporate culture, no vision, chaotic perpetual transitional phase ongoing, no continuity
Data Reporting Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 January 2018
Yellow Pages is good place to learn and improve your soft and technical skills. Pressure of the work varies week by week and depends on the number of projects the company decides to implement. However, job security is too low and they recently laid off 500 people.
CERTIFIED ADVERTISING MEDIA CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 23 January 2018
I loved my job for the first 5 years but due to market changes, the culture of the organization changed dramatically. Manager was extremely inept and made the position a challenge. Environment became toxic. Was relieved to leave after many years....
Clerk (Current Employee) – Scarborough – 22 January 2018
Yellow Pages used to be a good company. The new CEO came in fired everyone with only the minimum under the employment standards act. This company is a sinking ship and everyone really needs to get off the boat.
We use to have free parking, not anymore. The new location is awful if you live on South Shore. With every New SEO expect tons of layoffs .People are friendly and qualified! It was pleasure working with such a great people!
Productive and changing to meet new technology and client demands
Sr. Marketing & Sales Media Consultant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 January 2018
Overall high satisfaction, with my several years with YPG, and the other Companies it was previous to being purchased by YPG. Above average training and benefits provided. Typically worked with little to no supervision, as our Alberta Team is small. YPG, had moved all Employees, across the country several years ago to home office aside from Head Office in Toronto. Good work to life balance.
Account Coordinator/Sales Support (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 5 January 2018
A typical day at work would entail a lot of repetition. I learned a lot about customer service in my time at YP. The work culture was great within my department. The hardest part of the job was adapting to all the changes while the company was going through restructuring.
