I dont really have 150 words to say about The Hamilton Spectator, it used to be a pretty cool place to work and i used to be proud to say i worked there.

Stressful and Too Early

You need to be up so early in the morning and be in the meeting location at 2:30 am to pick up newspapers to be delivered to the subscribers. You need to finish delivering the newspapers on time. It didn't help me with my sleeping patterns. I got headache and had to wake up again to get my daughter ready for school.

Just horrible

Packages Would be late causing late delivery’s getting me into trouble, over run with work causing me to fall behind in school and lose sleep in order to finish the job.


Free tickets to events


Long hours, stressful

Good place to work

Good place to work, however, little room for advancement. Freedom to run your own schedule. Management is helpful and understanding. Extensive training provided.

Delivering Flyers at least once a week.

- On Wednesdays I would get all of the flyers ready for delivery. - On Thursday I would set out to deliver all my flyers by 6:00PM. - The hardest part of the job is working in the bad weather.


Learning New Things


Low Pay
