Headquartered in Sussex, Wisconsin (just west of Milwaukee), our company has approximately 24,000 full-time equivalent employees working from more than 70 print-production facilities throughout North America, South America and Europe. With consultative ideas, worldwide capabilities, leading-edge technology and single-source simplicity, Quad/Graphics has the resources and knowledge to help a wide variety of clients in distinct vertical industries, including but not limited to retail, publishing, insurance, financial and healthcare. The Company helps clients perform better in today’s rapidly changing world through innovative solutions that improve efficiencies, reduce costs, lift response and increase revenue.

In 18 months to three years or more, diverse individuals participate in on-the-job training in manufacturing and sales locations nationwide. The Corporate Training Program is leadership development, providing total access to everything from state-of-the-art technology to top-level executives. The Program is a reflection of Quad/Graphics’ innovative corporate culture, where each employee is encouraged to grow via on-the-job experience, personal development and company education classes, and through relationships with employees company-wide.

The First Four Months

  • Our Trainees begin their experience by rotating through our Wisconsin plants where they will work in manufacturing teams. Each trainee begins this experience in our Press, Finishing, and Imaging environments, working 12-hour shifts, 3 and 4 days per week. This work can be as physically challenging as it is educationally rewarding.

Four Months to Three Years and Beyond

  • Trainees complete a minimum of three administrative rotations of four to nine months each.
  • Trainees work in departments such as: Customer Service, Estimating, Sales, and Scheduling.
  • Relocation throughout the United States is also part of the Trainee experience. Rotations may include relocation to out of state plants or sales offices including California, Oklahoma, New York, Massachusetts and Georgia. When Trainees relocate outside our Wisconsin base, they reside free-of-charge in corporate housing. Quad/Graphics also provides one round-trip flight for home every 3 months you are away.


  • Trainees graduate from the Corporate Training Program when they find a department in which they have long-term interest and that department invites the Trainee to join its team. Typical graduation opportunities begin in Customer Service, Estimating, Scheduling and Sales Service.
  • Today, Quad/Graphics’ Corporate Training Program alumni serve as Sales Representatives, Customer Service Representatives, Estimaters, Schedulers, and Project Coordinators. The Program is a brain child of our Founder, Harry Quadracci, and has been a integral part of the culture here at Quad/Graphics ever since.


  • Completion or pending completion of a bachelor’s degree
  • Willingness to relocate for 6 months or more
  • U.S. citizenship, permanent residency, or authorization to work in the U.S. with no additional sponsorship for the maximum duration of the program (3-and-a-half years or more).
