Copy Editor (Former Employee), Calgary, AlbertaSeptember 19, 2013
Pros: invited to most public functions.
Cons: a weekly newspaper publisher has to be on duty 24-hours and even field calls at home.
As publisher, I would hold meetings first with advertising staff and later with editorial staff to get an idea about their appointments. I would also give my input ad sales people and story ideas to reporters. I was also in charge of writing editorials.

The hardest part of the job was to ensure that the company had enough revenue every month to pay – more... staff and cover other expenses.
The weekly newspaper business is very compettive and had to work hard to meet commitments.

Enjoyed being a publisher of a medium size town and the respect that was given to the position. – less

Solitary way to make money on your schedule
Flyer Delivery (Former Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 8, 2012
Pros: deliver when you want on a certain day
Cons: if it's -40 outside you still have to deliver
It is what it sounds like, mindless money. Sort then deliver flyers to certain adresses. You don't deal with people unless a recipient of the flyer talks to you. Good exercise. Gets very repeditive
