Pros: flexible job

The job was just a stepping stone as i continued my studies, workers were friendly but the lack of workers sometimes had you doing more then you should for the pay-rate.

Difficult but Manageable
Newspaper Carrier (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONDecember 19, 2012
Pros: get an income every month
Cons: quite repetitive and annoying
I deliver the papers three times a week which isn't too bad for me. It takes me about an hour to collate the papers on Wednesday and Friday (2 hours on Thursday) Delivering the papers is a half hour on Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday has the most amount of flyers to insert into the paper.

Pros: summer picnic!
Cons: the odd very long day
A good company to learn all about the print industry. Very fast paced environment with short deadlines. A good group of people to work with. Some days are long and tedious. Getting to see your work printed is my favourite part of the job.

Good work environment, with lack of growth potential.
Advertising Account Manager (Current Employee), Oakville, ONMarch 23, 2012
Pros: flexibility
Cons: low compensation in terms of industry-standards, little possibility for growth.
Metroland Media Group is one of Canada's largest media companies, being a subsidiary of TorStar Corp. You would think that with an organization this big growth and advancement opportunities within the company would be mroe readily available and obtainable. Major downsizing and cost-cutting over the last couple of years has left this company devoid of – more... any real growth opportunities within its many divisions.

That said, it has been decent place of employment for the 4 years I have worked here, with no real major complaints. – less

low base, no growth unless you kiss a $$

Cons: very low salary. unorganized.
Worst media company to work for. Very low salary, management is quite clueless about media trends. This company seems to be moving backwards in the media spectrum. Digital and print properties are archaic.
