Okay so once again our name has changed...but some things haven't. We still don't have a clue what Woodson does all day. Nor do we understand why they drink before doing the production scheduling. Or why 2nd shift is allowed to act like children with Gordon being the ringleader. We still have people out there that rules don't apply to because they are part of the invincible posse thats Jacksons a** kissers. Ed Wares running around there making 60k a year doing safety patrol that my 4 year old could do. Now we are in the recycling phase-wrap,end rolls,etc...does that apply to the out dated pressman? We still have a leaky roof that requires overtime just to place trash cans with in the pressroom..its like an obstacle course for the floor help. Then there's the Heathers. Find the original Heather sweet but the other is as dumb as a box of rocks. Besides playing on facebook& gossiping about the employees what do those girls do all day? Look its like this damnit if we're going to change then let's do it already! Painting& rearranging one pile of crap to another isn't change. It's INSANITY...DOING THE SAME THING OVER&OVER GETTING THE SAME RESULT!

So it sounds like 2nd shift is the same no matter if you're talking pressroom or bindery. It's like a mental institution being run by a couple of patients in the bindery. Ed Ware should probably makes sure his resume is updated and then make lots of copies of it. I don't see the new regime keeping him around for such a worthless position. Quad could probably save lots of money just cutting something of the excess BS jobs out at the Jonesboro plant.

sounds like the politics of a typical factory. at least they haven't closed the doors. lean manufacturing should apply to people and positions as well as processes. trim the fat..........

Second shift in the bindery is pretty much unsupervised. Something bad is going to happen and they won't even be able to get a supervisor to respond! They go to lunch early and are not on the property! They also have people coming in there on second who aren't even employees. I think that the 2nd shift supervisors need to be supervised!

2nd shift supervisors have to go out now, since they don't have Pete to run out and get them lunch anymore.

be patient and have faith young one.


there are others that have contact to Wisconsin, and they are on your side.

there will be changes, most that you will like and maybe a few that you wont.

by the way, i agree about the heather thing.
the original heather is really nice and very hot, new heather is rude and dangerously thin, maybe bolemic.

It's been a free for all for years now. Once upon a time it was a good place to work. Now it's a three ring circus. I swear everyday I wait for that little car to pull up & see how many clowns come out. Our rep is so bad. The pressroom is getting a bit more stable as for workers. They are staying longer than 3 days now. Didn't say they were worth a crap but they are staying.Most of the turnover is on 2nd,however I heard Quad has the last say on firing. It's no longer a tag team ploy ran by Gordon& Kratts. Change is welcomed as far as I'm concerned. We have alot of guys that need a knot yanked in their a** & brought back down to earth. My son asked me the other day where was it I worked again. When I told him Quad Graphics he said he thought it was called something else. When I tried to explain he looked at me & said "Daddy I'm confused"....so am I son..so am I.

I know. It gets old telling people where I work and getting that confused look and then having to say, "It used to be World Color", or "Ringier", and then they get it.

I am pretty sure the new Heather does not have an eating disorder. I think she looks amazing after just having a baby. Oh and I think you meant bulimic not bolemic! I bet you won't say that to her face because you probably look like a beached whale?

If Ed Ware's job is so easy why don't you do it? What exactly is it that you do there again? Oh and about Heather being as "dumb as a box of rocks", hmmm that's probably how she got her college degree and an office job by being an idiot... don't be jealous because you can't figure out how to excel in life and other people have.

you are correct on one thing, i do look like a beached whale. im embarrassed by my extremely large butt, i had hoped that the new quad uniforms would hide it but they dont.
maybe my huge caboose is the reason that you are wrong on your other point.
i would have no problem telling new heather that she looks too thin for her health, not because i want to insult her but because i am concerned.

not long ago i was waiting for a friend near the water at craighead forest and somebody called 911. they must have thought i was a beached whale. with my quad uniform and three foot wide ass and all.
i did have my shirt off when the cops came, they said that they wouldnt arrest me if i put it back on.

You don't think that saying someone is possibly bulimic and rude on a highly viewed public forum is not insulting? You are starting very serious false rumors about a person you probably barely know. If you are so open about all of your "opinions" then why do you post with a made up name? You apparently are a rude, jealous and very insecure person. Hope that posting mean things about various people on topix fulfills you and makes you feel better about yourself!

Ed Ware does jack shit. He acts like a child any time he actually has to get off his worthless tail and do his damn job.
