Suggestions for improvement

  • Since office conditions are cramped and the cleanliness seemed questionable to me, I would allow ad reps to work out of home offices and skip the long drive to the office in Cheboygan. My round trip was 96 miles, and the other reps had similar commutes.
  • Make sure that all your ad reps have accounts that are open and in business at the time they are issued to the representative.

What I like about the company

They publish the Mackinac Journal, a fine regional publication that is a good vehicle for advertising sales.

What I dislike about the company

It offered the lowest base pay I ever had, I was given Summer seasonal accounts in February, and in my opinion non-viable accounts overall, I received no training on in house procedures. I was given a makeshift desk underneath a gaping hole in the wall and ceiling which dripped and splashed dirty water into my briefcase and desk periodically.

Workplace Safety

All I know is that while I was there, there was a large, gaping hole in the ceiling that dripped and drained green water. It was sickly.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Close the paper entirely.

What I like about the company

Truly nothing.

What I dislike about the company

I found nothing to recommend about Gatehouse Media, The Cheboygan Tribune, or Propel Digital Marketing. It was the worst employer I've ever had. I thought that I might be able to earn some commissions by selling their advertising, however. But I couldn't find anyone who wanted their products, at least not on my assigned account list. I was paid the lowest base pay I ever had, was given summer seasonal accounts in February, the lowest mileage compensation I've ever seen, and no training on products or procedures. They needed new accounts but I was given little time to prospect.
