Toxic work environment and under appreciated
Reporter/Editor (Ancien employé) –  Alberta3 septembre 2019
This was the worst work environment I have ever worked at in my entire life. Horrible pay, awful management, being overworked for barely any money and absolutely no praise for your work. Just awful.

Worst place
Associate (Ancien employé) –  Port Alberni, BC20 août 2019
They make promises and can't keep them. Rotten from top down. Stay away. I learned the hard way. I find it amazing they are still in business to this day.

Do you like stress? Join Black Press.
Reporter/Editor (Ancien employé) –  Alberta15 août 2019
This is a great place to crash and burn. Seriously.
Black Press considers your time disposable, and salaries are below the market rate.
Top down management style. That's not necessarily a bad thing but management is focused on one thing: money, everything else is secondary.
If looking for a job at Black Press seriously take some time to read reviews of the company and research how it operates. And then work somewhere else.

I deliver newspapers for Black Press.
Newspaper Delivery (Employé actuel) –  Surrey, BC13 juin 2019
I deliver newspapers to Black Press on Wednesdays and Fridays. I deliver rain or shine. The hardest part is delivering in the rain and cold. The best part are the customers, and i often get tips. The circulation management are very nice.

Great staff, great job, low pay
Reporter/Editor (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC9 juin 2019
Loved the job, the pay left a lot to be desired, I see it as a great introductory opportunity to get into journalism, and once you have had the opportunity to grow, you move on.

Toxic environment, total disgrace to journalism
Editor (Ancien employé) –  Victoria, BC7 mai 2019
At Black Press, it's not a matter of, "are you happy with your job" but "be thankful you have a job."

Whether you are a starting or veteran journalist, do yourself a big favour and look somewhere else for work. Employees (editorial staff in particular) are treated as sub-human savages; underpaid to below the poverty level and overworked to the point that having a life at all is just impossible.

Oh, and there are daily story counts, so if you don't produce at least 20 to 80,000 stories a day (rehashed online garbage of other online garbage) you will be hearing from management. Remember, quantity is key at BP, much like those cheap plastic toys that arrive on shipping containers in the millions every hour.

Speaking of management. Black Press executives rule like a dictatorship; speak your mind of any concern to ethics, workplace safety or better pay, and you will be humiliated, ignored or punished in some fashion. Seriously, it's like they took leadership notes straight from Stalin's handbook.

If I had a choice to mine salt in Siberia or work at Black Press, I'd earnestly take salt mining in Siberia in a heartbeat.
Points positifs
Zero.
Points négatifs
No overtime, long hours, low pay, tyrannical management

You don't want to work here
Former staff member (Ancien employé) –  Kelowna, BC4 mars 2019
This is a company that has really gone downhill in the past couple of years. In their attempt to remake themselves, they have destroyed themselves instead. Management couldn't care less about employees—if you have questions or concerns, don't bother telling them, you'll be met with contempt and condemnation. All ad design is now done in the Philippines. The company culture is 'stress' and 'complete lack of appreciation'. Morale is so low you have to scrape it off the floor. It's really too bad, it used to be a fantastic company. See a job opening for Black Press? Don't apply. You'll regret it.
Points positifs
It's a paycheque
Points négatifs
low pay, high stress, lack of appreciation, no morale, no support

Not Good
Former editorial staff (Ancien employé) –  Victoria, BC3 novembre 2018
Where to begin with how bad this company was to work for? Rock bottom wages, huge workload, frequent firings / terminations, high staff turnover and management that views the editorial side of the operation as a drain on shareholders returns. I worked with many awesome reporters and editors there, almost all of whom had the good sense to move on a long time ago.
Points positifs
You get to have bylines in a print media publication, sometimes if there's a management meeting they'll offer you some of the leftover pizza
Points négatifs
You are expected to sacrifice your personal and financial life for poverty level wages.

good starter job
Paper Carrier (Ancien employé) –  Mission, BC1 août 2018
I enjoyed my time with Black press. having a paper route is a great starter job, but it can get a little bit boring as you get older and your friends are all working at places like McDonalds

Newspaper Deliverer (Employé actuel) –  Delta, BC2 juillet 2018
I usually did the route with my family. A typical route usually takes about forty to sixty minutes.The most enjoyable part of the job is when we finished.

Was ok to work for
Paper Delivery (Ancien employé) –  Victoria, BC30 juin 2018
Working for them was ok. Papers were always delivered on time and on the same 2 days a week. Hardest part of the job was trying to get the papers, in the rain and snow, to customers houses without them getting wet or ruined.

Great Work Atmosphere
Multimedia Consultant (Ancien employé) –  Red Deer, AB11 juin 2018
just to clarify they do not have computers from the 90s, as a previous rep we were using brand new ipads to complete our sales process on. secondly the designer hubs are not sweat shops and remain with in Blackpress and North America. This is a great place to work a challenging 9 -5 monday to friday job with a really good life to work balance. The staff at the Advocate are very friendly laid back bunch and they make terrific co-workers.
Points positifs
free tickets to local events

Find another place
RED DEER ADVOCATE (Ancien employé) –  Red Deer, AB18 mars 2018
Management is dysfunctional and they have gone through at least 20 different sales reps. I feel like they are wanting to shut the paper and combine with the Red Deer Express. Not to mention the office is so dirty and some computers from the 90's are still being used.
Points positifs
None
Points négatifs
Long Hours, No compliments, cheap.

Last resort
Head operator (Ancien employé) –  Alberta28 février 2018
Blackpress took over the original profitable company that treated it's employees like they mattered, and ran it into the ground, and pretty much ruined half of the staffs lives through inept management. If you have pride and a sense of self worth ,respect, and perhaps a goal in life to succeed?? It would be the last place I would apply. If you are desperate and enjoy being taken advantage of ?? This could be the company for you.

Unrealistic expectations, poor resources
Advertising Consultant (Ancien employé) –  Abbotsford, BC30 janvier 2018
If you’re looking to put out maximum effort, only to be told that you just need to push a bit harder to reach your minimum target then this is a great place to work. Minimal supports are in place, technology is sub par, wage is laughable. On site designers were terminated a year ago so now all ads are designed in regional hubs (sweat shops) by low paid and overworked non designers who provide ads laden with errors. The time it takes to make a straightforward ad is ridiculous and prevents anyone from success. Management expectations are extremely unrealistic.
Points positifs
Coworkers are great to commiserate with
Points négatifs
Underpaid, under appreciated, relentless demands for more effort

Heavy news papers, long paper routes for little to no money
