Fun when with someone else

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
I would recommend if doing this job to partner up with someone as it can be way more enjoyable, however, the salary would have to be split which at that point would be very less.

Fun workplace

It was fun and a good exercise walking around delivering newspapers, it was time consuming but all work is. I legit used to the path and many people tipped me along the way as they got to know me.

Points positifs

Get in shape

Points négatifs

A lot of excess garbage

I didn't like working there at all.

I was a carrier for them and I did 268 houses and I barely got paid enough to buy a video game. they extremely underpay their carriers meanwhile we were the ones that had to be outside no matter the weather and deliver the papers to peoples door steps.

Not great for busy people

It’s incredibly labour intensive, they don’t give you much time to complete given tasks, and they aren’t very good at getting back to you when you request help or assistance that they are required to provide.

repetitive and once a week

I did not enjoy my experience working for Brampton Guardian because most weeks there would be bad weather and it would be difficult to deliver without damaging newspapers or injuring my self. I would also have packages of newspapers delivered to my house with flyers falling out of the inserts or randomly placed in between inserts.

Great for starters

Newspaper carrier is a good job for excercising timing and organization. It is a great after school job for kids from middle school - high school you can do from home in your neighborhood

Decent place to work

This place was a decent place to work. I didn't receive much experience and had a lack of management to employee communication. It was good for the time being but wouldn't work there now.

good starter job for young children

about 80 papers to deliver learned about responsibility, accountability and being punctual the hardest part of the job was delivering in the winter or heavy rain most enjoyable part was having human interactions with the house owners as well as having the outside exercise while working

good first job but bad after your not a preteen anymore

They don't care for newspaper carriers you make no money its not so bad in the summer but the winter is brutal and the only good thing is the tips you get from people and thats not a guarantee the news paper carriers are under appreciated

Working for the city

i was young when i worked here, everything is good but they do not treat you right. this job is great for a start up job for children age 10-15. The is pay okay for a start up job for children.

Not the best job

Although this job was pretty exciting for me (being my first one). It came along with a lot of tedious work. Getting a bunch of flyers every week and putting them inside the newspaper took a good hour. Next was putting elastic bands on and if it was snowing or raining, putting red plastic sleeves; which took another 30 minutes. The elastic bands would occasionally break. Also, the pay wasn't that good either. Getting paid 10 cents for every newspaper is not enough.

Points négatifs

Lots of work, not enough pay

lots of issues, very little transparency

throughout my time delivering for the Brampton Guardian, they lowered pay dramatically. it started with 3 delivery days, but when i quit it had been dropped down to just one day. the only solution they offered as to why was to "take on another route" if we were unhappy with the pay. there were often not other routes available to take on, and the ones that were available were in no way close. carriers would be penalized for newspapers not being delivered intact when in fact when i received the newspapers to fill with flyers they were damaged already.

Good

I like it, its easy and doesn't take too long. Only once a week. Though, you only get paid basically 10 dollars a week working about 3-4 hours per week.

Points positifs

Once a week and fast

Points négatifs

not paid well

Very active job

-enjoyed since I had to walk around -great way to earn money However, sometimes delivering newspapers in winter was sometimes bad due to the sidewalks or driveways not being cleaned. I remember delivering newspapers during the storm ( not a major one)

Points positifs

good pay

Points négatifs

delivery papers in winter

Great job for young kids who want to earn cash easily.

Loved working with Brampton Guardian and for a good cause, not only did I earn money but also specialties like tickets, movies etc. Great way to start a business or earn cash through exercise or easy work for kids. Typically took me 2 hours a week to finish delivering papers which also gave many people an opportunity to advertise their business or companies through my newspapers that I delivered, such as new stores that open up, real estate agencies and events near the neighborhood.

Points positifs

Free movie tickets, games, events etc.

Points négatifs

Didn't earn enough
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

starting job

easy job to do - only 3 days a week. You will get the flyers and the newspaper and then you will need to collate together. When the weather is bad, you will need to bag the newspapers.

Points positifs

good introduction to work

Points négatifs

little pay
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

Horrible Experience

Every day I had to carry at least 60 pounds of newspaper and deliver them to over 100 houses around my community. The cart that the company gave broke due to the weight. The pay that they gave me was $40 bi weekly for the amount of work we had to do. Even though when I worked for The Brampton Guardian I was under the age, not eligible to work yet, they treated us like dogs. My boss was rude and disrespectful, any time that I was unable to deliver on a certain day because of school or a family matter came up, my boss would be impolite and tell me I would have to do it or else I would get relieved of my job position.

Points positifs

First time having a job, the experience of working hard, was only 5 times a week, weekends no delivery

Points négatifs

Heavy lifting, low salary, hard labour
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

Small amounts of work, low pay, but convenient.

Good for making a little bit of money. You are only required to work one day of the week, supplies are delivered to you, and you are given a relatively loose timeframe to finish. Good if you want a small job that doesn't take up much time, but it doesn't pay very much.

Points positifs

Work at home

Points négatifs

Small earnings

learn time management

Putting the papers together wasn't hard at all, the only hard work is go carry all the flyers because it is very heavy. It is a great way to learn time management because the ideal time to deliver the newspapers was by 4pm when many parents come home from work. It's not too early nor too late but also you can deliver as early as you desire as long you get the job done.

Points positifs

enjoy the weather

Points négatifs

heavy to carry
