Metroland Media Auditor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 28 March 2013
working at metroland was the most rewarding job. my job was to basically call customers on behalf of company to ensure they received their newspaper,however there were days where the manager would switch it up i would print flayers, hire people to deliver the flyers, package the newspaper and get them read, and at times because im an accounting student i would sit and observe how the accounts did real life accounting rather book based at the university. i had great co-workers the only problem was that we were not many, so the workload varied, at times it would more or less. other than that there was nothig i found lacking at metroland media and if it were switching schools i wouldnt have left it.
free lunch, potlogs, switching up the work routine
very few people working at my station, so the workload was a bit too much

The business model wasn't as effective for the editorial staff as some other organizations I've worked for. The management style varied a lot from region to region and there's not a lot of clear expectations.
