Delivery Boy (Former Employee) – Stoney Creek, ON – 18 February 2014
Toronto Sun does not differ too much from any regular newspaper company. A typical day at the job would be delivering between 30-60 papers to desired customers. Management was friendly and did a good job in making everything run smoothly. No co-workers involved. Hardest part was the brutal winters and the most enjoyable was being out in the summer.
Summer enjoyment, Pay is not too bad
Waking up and delivering papers early in the cold winters
Newspaper carrier (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 29 October 2013
It was a very easy going job. Delivering 160 papers once a week and collecting customers payments monthly earned me atleast $300/mth + $40 for gas, but eventually my pay went down to $150/mth and there were extra papers that needed more time rolling that were introduced so I had to start waking up earlier and eventually I gave up the job because I was tired of it.
Recieved $40 dollars for gas every two weeks (Had to drive all around south end of Barrie)

Newspaper Carrier (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 11 September 2013
Delivering 50 to 500 papers a morning can be tiring and challenging.Being on time requires carriers to hustle and get the paper in the mail box or at the door. With practice, delivering to houses on route will become second nature as house numbers become familiar. The hardest part is keeping awake in the wee hours of dawn. The most enjoyable part is the running and throwing actions involved.
Enjoyable job that you can personalize to your comfort

Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 March 2013
The most enjoyable experience of working with the Toronto Sun were the wonderful people I had the opportunity to work with as well as the invaluable experiences I gained .Each and every day presented a new and exciting challenge and with it an opportunity to further develop and refine my skill sets. The most challenging part was the high turnover, which often lead to a more reactive management approach, in an effort to continuously reduce expenses. However this also presented an opportunity to perform workflow analysis and implement process efficiencies
