I'm thinking about a job change. Please give me some info about Quad. Do they print and bind? Do they make books or magazines or something else? Is it good, bad or ugly? How much is insurance and all the perks. Starting wages n such. Thanks so much for any info.

If you're working at another printing plant in the area that I think it is, I say wait! What was in the paper is just corporate BS, all they hire are Mexican temps & the occasional US citizen, but they give them something to do that they shouldn't be doing, in hopes they will quit. The only thing keeping the company alive is porn and junkmail and that cant last. Quad has closed several plants after making promises about expansion & hiring more people. Just ask the ones that used to work in Jonesboro, Arkansas! I remember when over 1,000 people worked in Versailles. For some strange reason, they decided to give the company a tax-break, so don't expect to see any good come out of it for the general public.

If you do your job right, its an ok place to work. Pay is around $11 an hour. The work itself is very boring, especially from the machine assistant standpoint. There are days where you put stickers on magazines for hours, standing in one spot. Go to school, and do something you enjoy.

i work at Quad and there just like all big company's its all about the money. They dont give a crap about there employees all i can say is goto school and do something you like to do. When you first get on they will promise you the world then once they get you hooked your doomed they will screw you every chance they get.

Here at RRD in Danville we aren't wasting money on new equipment or maintenance. We just run it till it breaks, put a band-aid on it and run it some more. Oh yeah, we run with 1/2 the crew we did back in the 90's too with no additional automation. Just make people work till they drop. Really nice place to work. Come join us!

After working for this company for over 20 years let me tell you that if you plan on working at Quad don't get to comfy. Quad runs their business like this....Hire as many local people and retain 1 out of 40 that make it through the probationary time. Once you become full time you are told you will have the flexible 3 on 4 off and so on. That is BS plan on working nights days weekends and Holidays. Once you have got comfortable and start to earn a decent wage ( quad is 20 to 30% below industry average for pay) you will become an expense and you will be put threw the wringer with odd hours and jobs and if you don't quit you will be eventually terminated or better yet "laid off" and then asked back for less than you were earning if you turn it down no unemployment. This is the Quad way. The plant director there in Versailles was told to move there because when he was in Wisconsin well lets say some people really wanted to.... have a chat with him.... This also happened in Canada. Just ask him. He is one of the Quad henchmen one of the worst. Please think about it before the brainwashing starts. I know of 2 people that took their own lives because of Quad. Be your own judge but be warned

I worked there. That has got to be the sorriest company in Versailles if not Kentucky. If you ask most of the people who worked there for many years(20 or more), they don't like it. They say the new management sucks. Most of the the full time employees work at night one month(7pm-7am) then have to switch to the daytime the next(7am-7pm). They are so tired because their bodies have a hard time adjusting to such a drastic switch in sleeping habbits. They tried that with the temps but most of them quit so they had to drop that policy with the temps. I don't know where the previous writer got 11 dollars an hour. It all depends when you show up to interview and if they have a position open that pay that amount(which would be the bindery). Most of my group started at 7.25 an hour and they will give you 9 an hour if you a guy that looks stout enough to life 80-100lb "logs" which are stacks of paper bound up for your 12 hour shift. Your body will adapt to the muscle strains and tears but it takes a terrible toll on the joints of your body. Also if someone gets hurt they don;t take care of you but will point the finger at the injured worker as the source of the problem. Most of the workers are either illegal Mexicans or Americans with felonies. Hamilton Riker(the temp agency) knows that they can keep the pay very low and still have workers with those two groups. Yet they are always needing help because it is a horrible place to work. Good luck if you work there. You are better off at Micky Dees or any other place than Hamilton Riker/Quad Graphics.
