Advertising Sales Consultant
Advertising Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONJune 23, 2014
This company is a dinosaur that is dying.

The manager of the new business team is the most negative, dismissive human i have ever met. He has no sales experience and is creating a culture that is poisoning any chance for that organization to pull it out of it's death spin.

It will be a sad day when this 169 yr old company breathes it's last breath. The sales staff are doing the best they can with poor leadership. There are some amazing people there trying to make it work.
Pros
free paper, great people in sales positions
Cons
horrible manager in the new business division.

Hello,
Inserter (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ONJuly 26, 2012
I am very organized and like to do my job the best i can do. I have learned to work well with others and be multitask. The hardest part of the job is to work nights without being tired. The most enjoyable part of the job is to work with people and know that i finished the work without making mistakes.
Pros
paid lunches
Cons
not enough hours

Great Experience to showcase my writing
Blogger (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ONNovember 12, 2012
Blogging for the Ottawa Citizen has proven to be a great experience to showcase my writing.

I write a tech blog and several entertainment blogs for the Citizen including the exclusive blog coverage of Ottawa Bluesfest and the now defunct Capital Hoedown Music Festival.
