RR Donnelley

Does anyone have any information the RR Donnelley company? On Monster.com and in our local newspaper classifieds they list many open positions from photographer to producer to premedia etc. Generally, when a company consistently lists this many openings there is high employee turnover.

Re: RR Donnelley

yes indeed, they have a mandatory overtime rule which requires you to work saturdays and if you don't like it, "there is the door".....those were the exact words i heard when i interviewed with them last year, i didn't get the job as what was in the ad had nothing to do with what they were looking for, that was a waste of time to say the least...

A step or two down from Quad. And Quad is an awful place to work.

Amazing that they're still in business. Basically bankrupt and back from the dead 4 or 5 years ago. 2009 should take them down for good.

Hope their retouchers are smart enough to take the work with them when it does.

It's not like that, Apeman. Their source of work is prepress, and those magazines are dying. Or, the work is going to Hong Kong or India.

Re: RR Donnelley

The reason they are hiring in your area is because RRD just landed a major account in the Midwest. Let's just say that this account is in retail industry and it was one of the very few that was profitable last year during the start of the recession.

The mandatory overtime rule only applies to certain facilities. The other facilities are strictly voluntary.

In this economy, I would rather work those mandatory overtime than not have a job. Just my 2 cents

Yes RRD is not doing well currently, under biding jobs to get work and they will send it to Hong Kong or India......
