Our work-as-classroom approach and emphasis on the individual is your opportunity to learn and grow in ways you could never imagine.

Quad/Graphics’ Corporate Training Program reflects our innovative corporate culture, where each employee is encouraged to grow via on-the-job experience and classroom education, and through an emphasis on “Thinking Small” and building relationships with co-workers companywide. The brainchild of our Founder, Harry V. Quadracci, the program launched in 1983 to give select individuals the opportunity to learn our technology and processes (“high tech”), as well as the importance of close personal relationships and using our heads and hearts in making informed decisions (“high touch”). Our Founder’s vision was to prepare employees for future roles as company leaders, and he viewed the program to be essential to our growth. And how Quad/Graphics (NYSE: QUAD) has grown!


For 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 First Four Months — Our trainees begin their experience in our Wisconsin plants where they will work “hands-on” in manufacturing teams. Each trainee begins this experience in our Press, Finishing and Imaging environments, working 12-hour shifts, three and four 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 (three to nine months each) working directly with clients in areas such as Customer Service, Estimating, Sales, Scheduling, Marketing, Postal Solutions and Change Management. Relocation throughout the United States is also part of the trainee experience. Trainees who relocate outside of Wisconsin receive free-of-charge corporate housing.

Graduation — 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.


  • Relocation to plant locations and sales offices throughout the United States for periods of six months or more.
  • Completion or pending completion of a bachelor’s degree with at least 3.0 GPA.


Corporate Training Program alums have played — and will continue to play — a big part in this success, serving at all levels of our organization. Even our current Chairman, President & CEO got his start in our Corporate Training Program!
