Fast paced with shifting hours but good people that wanted to help

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Work starts with us all arriving and waiting for the paper press to start, assembling the sleeves to be put in the paper and rotating between hoppers Management would supervise the process and correct any mistakes made in a fast and proper manner.

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

hard

super stressful, too much work but little pay and the weather would be terrible and yet you'd still have to deliver. The man was very rude when id ask

great expericance

When I was a flyer carrier for Hamilton Spectator it was a great experience to have. It taught me the responsibility of having a job, and prepared me for my job I the future. It taught me the importance of time management.

Sales and Marketing

A difficult job with long hours, poor management. Very difficult to get in touch with HR when looking to try and get T4. High stress with working 6 days a week, making it difficult to balance home and work life.

Hamilton Spectator is a good Company to work for. The Management Team was always helpful and understanding. The pay was good for extra cash. The depot where I had to pick up the papers to deliver was in the same city as me.

Pros

Management

Cons

Customers requests at times but didn't mind doing it

Laid back environment

You manage your own time, while managing to deliver the papers on time. It is early mornings. Management is effective. It took about an hour and a half to complete my route.

Great, fun place to work!!!

This is my (PT-side job) and I absolutely love it! A lot of driving involved. Coordinating events and setup. Great management to work for. Exciting venues such as fairs, CFL games, etc. Very professional leadership. A "family" bond with management and workers alike.

Excellent Work

The work experience was extraordinary. I worked from 4am to 6am when I was only 11 years old. Time management was very good. The hardest part was staying awake because it was so early in the morning and the most enjoyable part was running of course.

Pros

low hours, very easy

Cons

low pay and working very early in the morning can be tiresome

Fun

Delivering 200 papers, much more difficult and time consuming than it seems. Great management always responsive and helpful. Hardest part is not having a set schedule every day and waiting for the papers to arrive on time and being able to deliver the papers before the deadline.

Pros

I control when I start and leave

Cons

Very low pay
