Newspaper Carrier (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 20 September 2018
for the short time I spent with this company, most of my experiences were delightful, and I believe that thus is an excellent job to pick up, only if you have time, and a reliable means of transport as papers are heavy.
Metroland Media Packer (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 September 2018
Work place culture was ok at best. The only thing that kept me working there for 5 years was the flexibility of hours, and the people I met there. The workplace was unorganized and was not run very well.
Press Helper (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 24 August 2018
Typical work day is pretty laid back and relaxed. There are days where it can be go, go, go and be stressful. You start off with three weeks vacation which is a plus. The only downfall is that its newspapers and flyers and the way technology is going soon there will be no need for paper.

it is good for younger people looking for a way to make a quick buck the pay isn't so great but you only work one day a week on Thursdays. Awesome in the summer but the newspapers in a bag can get quite heavy. They give you the actual newspaper and they give you the flyers separately so you have to put them together then roll them up and put rubber bands on it which can get tedious.
Factory worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 August 2018
A typical day was pocket feeding flyers into a running machine. Something that i have learnt is how to be organized, working in a fast paced environment and communicational skills. This job was a good job, but it was not my type of job.
Learnt a lot of skills that will help me with my future job.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 July 2018
Got my first internship here. During the time there was a bit of change in the project manager so it was a bit unorganized at the first. However, the team members are nice and the working environment were chill.
Productive workplace as you work within the comfort of your home
Newspaper Carrier (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 6 July 2018
This job was amazing for children to learn the value of money and the drivers who brought the papers to the homes of the carriers were reliable and efficient. However, this job was very hectic and stressful as only a few days would be provided to sort the papers and get them ready for the paper day for you to hadn them out.
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 July 2018
it's really a great workplace overall but only problem I had with it is I was there as a Graphic Designer but barely did design work which was really frustrating. If the pay was better then I could bare it a bit but if I'm rarely doing the work i enjoy and little room for growth plus pay was only good for a bachelor.
Newspaper Carrier (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 26 June 2018
I would come home from school every Wednesday and Thursday and put the news papers together and make sure they were delivered by 6:00pm and would get paid every three weeks by the customers that actually did pay.
Newspaper Carrier (Former Employee) – Stouffville, ON – 6 May 2018
This company is ok. This is the first job I had and the experience was alright. I worked here for about one year as a newspaper carrier. The benefits are you work minimal hours depending on the number of houses you deliver to. The only requirement is papers are delivered on Thursdays before 7 pm. The downsides are the wage is far below minimum wage when you calculate the hours you work compared to the salary. I made something like 7 cents per paper plus commission for each ad in the paper. The amount all depends on the type of ad. I delivered to about 100 houses, give or take. To fold and deliver all those papers, it took around four to five hours and I usually made around $30 bi-weekly. In my opinion the wage is way too low, but not bad for a first job.
Somewhat flexible hours, Easy job, minimal hours
Extremely low pay, You must deal with rude people and you must deliver in all weather coniditons.
