Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 30 November 2017
Meeting the overbook staff at a predesignated location with an on site promoter. Then from there on go from location to location greeting each promoter, making sure that each has my full attention. And if any concerns need to be address to address them to the best of my abilities. AS I would move from location to location I would also sign in/out the promoters. At times making special trips to address drop issues when informed by phone by the promoters as to rectify faulty drops. Periodically remind the promoters about procedures of the job as needed as well as emergency procedures for the safety of the promoters. But at all times making sure that a safe and comfortable work atmosphere exist for the promoters.
regular hours, getting to know those I supervise, non stationary position
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 29 August 2017
Some times at BC Place or different events, but in Nasco we can find security and safety, fun and learning, and support from the managers. It is a good company to work for, but it is difficult to get a shift.
good wage, meal provided
difficult get a shift, it is not full time, nor part time
Wind Mobile Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 August 2017
This company acts similar to an agency - it sources out precarious or temporary jobs for people. My overall impression of stopping by there and working for them was great. They were very quick with their turn around time, and always were there if you needed anything.
Newspaper Distributor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 April 2017
The job was quite interesting. Needed to distribute papers to subwaygoers. Required waking up early for morning shifts starting at 6. Had to stand for 3 hours each day. But overall, it was pretty laidback and easy. Management was relaxed. Salary was above minimum wage. Fun part was talking to subwaygoers and seeing similar faces each day. Sometimes, some people would act weird but otherwise it was alright. Job in itself was good and would go back for it any day.
Good pay, not a lot of effort required
Had to stand for 3 hours, some lifting of newspapers
Server (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 February 2017
Nasco is a really good company to work with while you're looking for your part time/full time job. They pay you well and and the jobs are really flexible. One main thing that i like about Nasco is you get the chance to visit a lot of new places if you're working with them.
Event Staff (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 December 2016
Nasco is a great company to work for. They offer many different types of jobs to fit many different people's skills and strengths. They are a temporary company, so the work you will receive is not permanent, but gives you lots of good experiences.
Whos nasco? Who cares. (Former Employee) – twats that cant run a single event properly. – 2 July 2016
Seriously? Lol compared to a normal full moon partying whist, which is usually better than Ibiza,,, problem here is, people are being payed to control a party, and everyone working has a say, but no-one knows what on earth is going on. They're all new. Not to mention the restrictions and gates and guards that no-one respects, because they want to be free to roam. Let people do what they feel like doing. Then you'll have a decent festival. This is so restricted, yet none of the staff have a clue. How do you think it's going to end up? Lol your staff are all going to or already have been on drugs you morons.
I have great bosses, great job and team but the job is really for big guys since its lifting and unloading equipment in 15 trucks everytime.
This is basically men's job but I just tried since this is in events. I wanted to learn and try if there will be some opportunities to be promoted. Only that, since we are carrying equipments which are bigger and heavier than 4 persons. Sometimes it is not safe and affecting health aspects.
I have learned that trying is not bad but you should also know your priorities in life. I love events and the company but in our team of 80 to 100 doing all the same job everytime there is an event would not be a healthy job for me. We are faced with live wires and electrical set up and sometimes not safe to be around. Yet, the company is so supportive and taking care of us everytime.
My co- workers are 99% men and they are all good and friendly. The hardest part of the job is the unloading of the equipments in the trucks where sometimes you have to have a good break of yor own since you are protecting the things and avoiding accidents.
The enjoyable part of the job is everything. When you are being taken cared of by the company you feel great and enjoying everytime.
Nice office with free refreshments in mid rise building
Newspaper promoter (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 March 2016
The agency isn't a bad place. Most of the time I work outside handing free newspapers outside subway station entrances. I practiced my social skills with people. My supervisors are different people as of my co workers. There's no hard part of the job and being out there in public is a good experience for me.
