Fun job

Under the Hamilton Spectator, I would deliver the newspapers door to door at night time. We would meet up at a certain location, get our papers and be on our way.

Pros

driving experience

Cons

up early, early morning

Pays well, but staffing cuts have exposed toxic workplace culture

It was very cool to work in the Spectator building for just over a year. But elements of the workplace culture can be pretty brutal. Some 'lifers' including a sports editor who is an out-and-out bully bring the place down.

Pros

Strong union

Cons

Old thinking
