Media Developer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 September 2016
Pearson is my first foray outside of Adult Education which was emphasizing corporate programs. The organization as a whole is trying to move toward digital content as a delivery system for their mostly print-based assets. I've gained a lot of exposure into how Digital can work with Print in terms of production and gained valuable insight into that type of workflow. The transition is slow, but more personnel are embracing Digital mediums.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 3 December 2015
Laid back environment with great management. Enjoy working with co workers. The only downside is that business can be quite slow in off peak seasons. There was not much work. I enjoy the perks and the incentives of working at Pearson. Unfortunately there is not much room for advancement.
Factory Line Worker (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 8 July 2015
In my 7 week expereince at Pearson education, I largely enjoyed the people. Job security gets 3 stars as the factory will likely shut down within the next ten years (half of it shut down during my 7 week endeavour last year). Job culture gets 2 stars as most people who work there don't really seem to enjoy their line of work very much. It seemed like the culture promoted the "work for the weekend" mentality, which is not something I personally believe in.
Receiver (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 22 April 2015
I enjoyed all of my co-workers, love to read and learn new things.Dealing with some drivers was both good and bad.I got along with most management that I dealt with. I learned how to drive the equipment to move the product.
Packaging & Returns Material Handler (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 18 March 2015
I sort through the orders to match up the loose picks with the bulk picks, Once this has been done, I then use the forklift to take the orders to the appropriate department. Once I have completed all of this, I then go to the department and help with packing the orders so they can be shipped out to the customers. I receive invoice into the system. I put skids of product back into rack locations. I work with my Leader to ensure that everything gets done by the due dates. I don't feel that my job is hard. I'm busy all day and the is what I enjoy about the job. I know when I go to work that I won't be sitting around doing nothing.
