Letter Carrier (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB10 April 2018
I did work for this company in one of the worst winters in moncton. 2015 the 5ft snow drifts I was walking in, a was given grief for not putting paper in the spots, as if I could dig out 5ft of snow to get into a door. I was treated very poorly.

Horrible Bosses
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Moncton, NB20 January 2018
Unethical practices and uneducated Managers. No reviews from staff on Managers so their bosses never know how incompetent they are. They belittle you and the stress level is so uncomfortable.

Great place to grow.
Production Worker/Supervisor/Floor Manager (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB13 July 2017
A typical day at work would start off with checking e-mails as I prepared for the daily 8:00 AM meeting with the other managers. During these meetings anything that would impact production would be discussed including planning ahead and dealing with any issues needed.Would then work with the employees including appointing assignments for the workers go over reports on previous runs results and planning for the day and week ahead. I would do a lot of floor supervision with other Supervisors and take the time to encourage and help others when needed. Would also work with other departments to help with the success of overall production, would do scheduling and payroll. Overall I grew as a person, worker and leader.

Suffering Company
District Manager of Circulation (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB8 November 2015
Due to the falling interest in the printed paper, this business was starting to suffer badly. Unfortunately due to poor management and a very low interest in staff well being, this company became very difficult to work for. Increased budget cuts caused extremely poor job stability, which in turn caused very low staff moral.
I don't feel this company can come back from the hardships that befell it and brought upon it's self.
Pros
Full time position
Cons
staff neglect, poor job stability, poor management.

Pleasure to go to work daily
National Sales Manager/ Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB14 April 2015
A perfect balance for a Family individual. Respected and appreciated. Would only be too proud to be employed with Brunswick News in the future. Loved this job. Started most days with reading and process emails from most important to important based on their publishing dates the client requested. Communicate to many customers daily as I continued to building a very strong and trusting relationship. Respected each clients requested and explained in an honest manner if things were possible. Worked with a very productive team with in out department and respected each departments time line deadlines and worked diligently with the Press room's time lines so there were never advertising that was late for production. Worked hard, manages your time and enjoyed every task performed. A great group of co-workers makes a great group of people to spend your day with. When over time was required, we were always rewarded with a paid meal and time off for the hours worked. Very fair!!!
Pros
Respected, appreciated, trusted your opinion
Cons
Can not think of anything

Classifieds Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Moncton, NB24 March 2014
A typical day at work for the most part is good. Most of the co-workers and management are great to be around, but there is always one or two to spoil the bunch. It's a good place to work with lots of friendly people to help you along the way.

Advertising Sales Specialist
Advertising Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB22 January 2013
In the newspaper advertising game, it is very important to have each day planned accordingly, Everyday there is a deadline for the next day's newspaper at 4:30pm Atl time. It is imperative that you have a very close rapport built with all your clients, that way you understand they're advertising needs and have they're business advertising on a frequency basis. I enjoyed my mangers, I was a top earner however I did not want any special treatment, I also have helped new employees and some that were struggling at the time either with a little motivation, or a few simple things that could payoff big. I enjoy leading by example. My managers certainly did respect me for that and I knew it was not my role to help others however I am a team oriented person, it's my nature to help anyone whatever the case may be, as long as they want to help and better themselves. It's very unfortunate, I had to part ways as I was a very ill young man and I need time to get healthy again, I parted ways on excellent terms with the intention on returning. Times & Transcript in Moncton had no desk, phone or computer for me, however I was offered the same role at the Telegraph Journal in Saint John and The Daily Gleaner in Fredericton. I am not to interested on moving to Saint John. My resume and information is on file at the Times. There was not much I did not like about Brunswick News Inc
Pros
building rapport with clients, refferals from clients who you did very great things for, i met alot of great co-workers who i am happy to call friends now.
Cons
end of the month (sales period) to get the extra sales, that will push you over 100% of your monthly sales target
