Pros: Close proximity
Cons: Lack of career advancement; lack of hours
Working with Metroland Media, sorting and delivering the Scarborough Mirror newspaper, has allowed me to develop excellent communication skills in keeping up with customer interests and requests. A typical day involves about 1 hour devoted to sorting, and 1-2 hours devoted to delivery. It is a rewarding job, providing a valuable service to my route customers and allowing me to continually grow in my customer service skills. The job is quite enjoyable, but the hardest part would be the relative lack of advancement the field offers in moving forward.
