Freelance Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 September 2013
Great work environment, people and events. Corus is a great company, while in my Production assistant job I learned many assets to what it takes to make a big production, and the people involved in it.
Promotions, Receptionist, Interactive (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 22 January 2017
I loved working for this company as it was a work hard, play hard environment and my co-workers were like my second family. However, when lay-offs happened it was more stressful as the work piled up and the pay was not increased.
Free stuff, great team, relaxed environment, fun atmosphere, meeting artists
salary was low, sometimes the work piled up and it was like you were doing 5 jobs at once, not enough hours in the day certain time of the year
Productive and fun workplace with a 3 story slide and artwork on every floor!
Internal Communications & Events Intern (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 January 2017
A creative hub of brilliants artists, sales people, communicators and people managers. Excellent employee engagement events! Plus, the edge 102.1 is right there - you can see concerts in the middle of work.
fun work place, management styles leave more to be desired
worker (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 May 2016
Management in certain departments is almost non-existent. Styles in which employees must deal with all issues on their own is a joke. Management is unwilling to make decisions and instead pawns off their work to subordinates who should not be dealing with certain issues/tasks.
Co-workers are great. It is easy to foster both friendships and working relationships with these people.
Union employees have a perennial fight on their hands to get adequate pay raises and benefits. The company does not like to give these employees what they are due.
Communications (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 October 2016
The brands and perks that come from working at Corus are amazing: I really liked the company and what they do. Unfortunately, there are severe problems with the way senior, non-management staff treat other employees: it's toxic and abusive.
Senior Financial Analyst, Business Planning (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 October 2016
Corus is a fun place to work. Co-workers and management people are good. Apart from job there are lot of programs. In Finance & Accounting department we have lots of deadlines to met, so month ends are super busy time.
Promotions Assistant (Current Employee) – London, ON – 3 April 2016
-a typical day would be me coming in and catching up on emails (on average 20 a day) and responding to any that need attention; call winners from each radio station to let them know how,where and when to pick up their prize; do an inventory and vehicle maintenance check on all equipment; write proposals for contest ideas and prizes to give away on air; on site checks for promotions events; organize any sites that the station will be live from each week; communicate with clients and listeners to ensure they're happy with the station and be there for any communication that they may require.
- I've have learned many things from specialized promotion planning, customer service skills, video and audio editing abilities, organizational skills, and photography.
-would be willing to review any details in person!
-The hardest part of my job is keeping up with the hours while trying to keep a sleep schedule.
-The most enjoyable part of my job is the atmosphere and being a real part of the community. Getting to meet some of your favourite celebrities and experiencing things that the general public doesn't normally get to see is truly amazing as well
