Entertainment Weekly (sometimes abbreviated as EW) is an American monthly entertainment magazine based in New York City, published by Meredith Corporation, that covers film, television, music, Broadway theatre, books, and popular culture. The magazine debuted on February 16, 1990, in New York City.

Sunny shared her impression, "I was not very impressed with the Entertainment Weekly Magazine. I thought the print was very small and seems somewhat blurry. They seem to try to squeeze a lot into the magazine at one time so the information is very brief and not very informative."


Tell the world why EW sucks!

I certify that this review is based on my own experiece and is my opinion of this person or business. I have not been offered any incentive or payment to write this review.

Very dangerous job and racist people (Former Employee) says

"Not a good company if you are not a good old boy ! The trainers are very racist and the the wages was poorly for the risk of work they asked Very dangerous !"

Employee (Former Employee) says

"First off only 10 days of PTO a year, no matter what, for the first 5 years. Insurance is ok but not anything great. HR and management promised a lot of things when I was hired on including a pay raise after being there a while. Eventually was told I was capped out at my position with no possibility of movement into something better any time soon. So no raise after a year. Was told I would be put into a certain position only for them to hire someone else into that position. From people I had talked to, that was a pretty common theme. Only a select few people ever got any kind of promotion and there is very little if any room for upward movement in the company. If you're salaried they will expect very long hours out of you. From what I saw most of the salaried people were working 50+ hours a week. Lots of stress dealing with drivers and dealing with management. Some of the employees there were good people though."

Driver recruiter (Current Employee) says

"Bad people. Went out of their way to screw employees. Left me with no job on no notice shortly after a raise and much praise for the best year in company history."

Western Regional Manager (Former Employee) says

"i worked for here for approximately 6 months and they had an average turnover rate of more then 130%. the culture is the worst i have ever seen and the management do not care about any of their employees."

Driver (Current Employee) says

"From the start When I was going through orientation, I had that feeling of deception. Within my first month it all played out like clockwork. Talking to other drivers... they are miserable here. Low pay. Low miles. Lots of waiting (days) for your next load. The paychecks were laughable, especially when you know worked hard that week. Which was one of the few weeks it ever happened. Drivers complain about management. Management complains about drivers. Horrible company. I recommend you keep your distance and let them fail under their own mistreatment and lies towards the drivers. Biggest mistake I've ever made in the trucking industry. Cons: The useless propaganda they give out like candy pollutes our environment."

Transport operator (Former Employee) says

"they suck...lies from the time one arrives in West Fargo...Mowing their lawn while waiting for a load at a reduced rate.I learned not to believe them. Management is a bunch of people who don't have a proactive thought between them. Co workers , well, most of them don't know one end of a tarp from the other. The hardest part of the job is trying not to knock one of those lyiing clowns on their back. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving those lying people behind. Hey...tell em about your wind energy...oops, Ottertail Industries put you out of business there. Cons: believing them"

Flatbed Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"Worked here for About 3 months. Was hired on as a Texas regional driver. Company could only get me to Texas 3 times. All they say is no loads to Texas. Any company that can't get a load to Texas has some kind of problems. Was told on three different loads to drive to get loaded and get loaded on your 10 hour break so they get load picked up on time. But don't care about your dot 10 break. No clue how to get anything fixed from shop. 100% of the stuff I filled out on dvir no one in shop ever contacted me about Includes flat tire. I was told by 2 office employees they have around 300 trucks but hire 400 - 500 drivers a year. Amazing that a company that small can't keep just 300 trucks filled. Every week 10 - 16 new drivers in orientation class. I have 7 - 10 years driving and they paid me 37 cents a mile. That is bottom of the trucking industry pay. Cons: None"

Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"Drive a slow truck with serious problems, tell them your truck has issues they don't care pick up the next load. No heat during winter they did get it to the shop and fix it for about a day. Low pay for pulling flatbed even on my best runs i made more income driving dry van. So i left a company looking for better opportunities and only doubled my work load and reduced my income. Cons: governed truck, low pay, worn down trucks."

Owner/Operator (Former Employee) says

"Only one contract . Maybe 2 loads a week . Sitting around drivers room hoping to get a load. It’s like being at the doctors office. They want you to show up everyday knowing there’s no loads. Management tell you loads pay one thing and it’s another, after you’ve driven 600 miles and last the payroll is always always incorrect."

Driver Manager (Former Employee) says

"Their training program is very inconsistent. The turnover in the office is extremely high. Job security is non existent. No opportunity for growth."

Current driver (Current Employee) says

"Poor dispatching, terminal manager is clueless all around no sense of trucking. Not enough freight for this company coming out of Houston,Tx for this company. Best thing about this job is the truck drivers that's it. If needing a good job don't come here for that you will disappointed. Cons: no miles"

Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) says

"Hiring new people making more money hourly than they’re paying there employees that have been there and know what there doing. Then expect you to train the new guy. All they’ve done is make empty promises for a year since they took over moore freight service. Loaders and spotters are simply a number and they could care less. I guess they don’t understand not just anybody can load glass on a trailer. And management is terrible nobody knows nothing and they all blame the next guy for everything. Or they just tell you there gonna do what u need and never do. Cons: Payisnt very good, minimum breaks, poor management, they make a lot of excuses."

x driver (Former Employee) says

"I only stayed for 2 weeks was lied to from day one from the recruiter that's would say anything to get you hired to the training pay and the sign on bonus to the so called waiting time you get paid for drivers are still waiting on wait time pay for months you don't get it till they do and there is a lot of waiting to get loaded and unloaded Cons: the lies and excusses"

truck driver (Former Employee) says

"I started here in October 2015 as experienced driver for the Texas regional runs they had. Well they never told me that they lost so much business in Texas that the regional does all 48 states. After 1.5 months of complaining that i was not getting to Texas I got a 259 miles load and 3 days to get their. Welcome to ew Wylie."

Local Driver (Current Employee) says

"Terminal manager in Humble lost his man card by not taking care of drivers long ago, so you won't find him helpful, just personable when he HAS to be. The dispatcher there in Humble is dishonest, has no time management skills, and will ask you to do some highly illegal things. The training there in Humble is a joke, and it's really just as bad as SWIFT or CR England (if not worse.) The local trainer is not going to build your confidence in the company at all. You will find out the other local flat bed drivers in Houston call him "burnout", because he forgot to release the brakes and drug the trailer til it's brakes caught on fire over on Sheldon road (in front of God and everyone leaving the port.) You can easily spot him since he's the only flatbed you will ever see with his stack on backwards, making it obvious he doesn't know anything about a smoke tarp (chaining or tarping of any kind for that matter). You can't help but laugh. I know I got a good laugh every time he tried to back a trailer and how "professionally" he secures a load. It's all indicative of how the turnover is so high there in Humble, his 9 months driving experience (3 months flatbed) is the best they can do. Most importantly for anyone considering the job, when you do the math the pay averages anywhere from 10 - 15/hr. Considering how hard you will work and how bad you will be treated, you won't be there long either. Take another job. I have never written a bad review of any company I have worked for, but this one had to be written. The reputation Wylie built in Fargo does not reflect the local Cons: Pay, Hours, Work, Management, Equipment, Parking, Lighting, Unsecure yard, Theft is a problem"

Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"Delivering flatbed cargo throughout the United States and Canada. My experiences were not great. I don't care for this company at. Drive a truck that is governed at 15mph below the average speed limit. Truck has super single tires good luck trying not to slide around in the winter driving on icy roads. Because to save a few bucks on fuel and not care about driver safety doesn't sit well with me at all. There are times were you can not even get on the main road with these tires. I was in Denver in bumper to bumper traffic and i was stuck in the middle of the highway tires would not get traction. Pay is pathetic i only earned 7400 in six months work doing twice the workload securing loads and chaining equipment and get paid every two weeks. God forbid one of your trips don't get in on time or there is a mistake you won't see that for another two weeks. My last company i was making average 900 a week and in six months total was 14590 dollars. twice what i made with this company and i was hauling dry van. I personally do not like them at all and found them to not be worth my time. Cons: Worthless Truck, Super singles, Low Pay"

Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"Drive Flatbed truck with occasional oversize loads at 62 mph. Pic up mainly pipe, CAT, and John Deer loads. Co-workers were great however pay not so much. 34 cpm. paid every two weeks some loads take all week to deliver and wont get paid for them until the next two weeks. They expect you to drive 11 hours every day and keep moving even if you don't have a load assignment and nowhere to park the truck were they route you so when your times up nowhere to park which is getting more difficult to find theses days. Overall trucking is not my thing nor will it ever be again. Cons: Super Singles on trucks through snow and ice, Governed Trucks"

driver (Former Employee) says

"there had did not care about you . thy did not want to do any thing to make you life better.. like i had dish tallgater but thy would not put it on the truck ."

OTR Driver (Current Employee) says

"It is not a bad company. However the equipment is nice if you want to be baby sat with all the devised on the truck. Watch out the dispatchers don't know the FMCA rules or state regulations. They say one thing over and over during orientation. Communication is key. Haha they don't read messages they "over looked it" . Just saying be careful"

Executive Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) says

"Wylie's is great to work for if you are in with the right people. There tends to be "favorite's" among upper management. Duties tend to get added to you above and beyond your job description and you are expected to take on these tasks without compensation for doing so. The good thing is that it is easy to leave your work problems at work. Advancement in the company is difficult, again if you are not "in" with the right people. PTO is not good, you do not even accumulate 8 hours a month and there is nothing extra for "sick" time. Cons: healthcare, pto, no advancement, issues that are discussed are pushed aside."

Former Employee - Sales Representative says

"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Negative work environment, dishonest management and poor commission structure. Company is making any cuts they can to save money."

Former Employee - Producer says

"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than a year Cons: Terrible pay. Terrible hours. High school politics. Enjoy."


"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company Cons: There were scant 3% raises occasionally over the years. Company-wide pay reductions have happened. Expect annual/monthly layoffs with no regard for quality of work or loyalty."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time Cons: The broadcast industry is a very old-school industry. The company culture there is horrible. Bosses constantly bickering with eachother and with employees."


"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company Cons: Negative atmosphere. The team has a tendency to back stab and criticize staff who leave the newsroom then acts friendly when they come back. It's uncomfortable and gave me flashbacks to high school."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than a year Cons: Working here was one part corporate America, one part Big Brother and one part acid trip. When I think of The List, I think of that scene from Zoolander (the first one) where Mugatu screams "Am I Taking Crazy Pills?!" -- That's pretty much what every day feels like here. Literally, the management here has no grasp on what they are doing and what's worse is they think they do. To top it off, they also don't care about their staff, bad combo. Scripps is a corporation with certain policies, rules and structure. However the show wants to pretend it's some important LA show that it's not; where anyone can be fired for any reason at any moment. This creates huge conflicts in production and employee morale. I would describe it as an identity crisis. The management plays favorites and would rather play mind games and stir the pot with the staff than actually do work. Basically, from the ground-up, while I'm sure there are some great people under the Scripps umbrella, a lot just aren't. If you actually take pride in what you do, aren't into manipulating people and just want to focus on producing high-quality products and growing yourself in your given discipline and as a professional-- run fast."

Former Employee - Digital Account Executive says

"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than a year Cons: No leadership, no formula for success, no training, upper management doesn't care to listen to issues, poor customer service"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Local stations run from corporate HQ. Little to no regard for community journalism, with a bottom-line approach that leaves local viewers watching homogenized hometown news that looks like every other station in the chain"

Current Employee - Sales Executive says

"I have been working at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time for more than a year Cons: Mercurial management who cannot manage their meds let alone sales strategies."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at The E.W. Scripps Company full-time Cons: This was one of the worst jobs I have ever had. Upon being hired I immediately regretted the decision, the entire staff was miserable and looking for new jobs. Minimal interaction/communication between corporate offices and local branches. They did not look for any ways to improve and did not want to listen to any ideas from our branch. Low incentives. No industry training. Digital services offered are not up to industry standards making it hard for the sales team to sell. System in place where digital can only sell digital, if consumer would like to purchase air time as well, a sales person in broadcast would then take over the client even though a digital person brought them in. But if a broadcast person wanted to sell digital, that was OK. This was another reason the turnover was so high in digital sale. Note I was not even in sales but in a support role."

Consumer says

"Entertainment Weekly is misogynistic and racist. But even if misogyny and racism is your thing, Entertainment Weekly is stupid."
