I have been working at CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) part-time (less than an year)Pros
Friendly, interesting and professional colleagues. Managers are respectful and not condescending. Per-hour compensation is fair, if you're lucky enough to get hours.Cons
I'm in my mid-20s, and like virtually everyone in that age range at the CBC, I am "backfill" – i.e., employed but without any assurance of work. This is the only way to get in nowadays with the constant cutbacks. My schedule varies every week and I have no job security or benefits. I'll often finish a shift and don't even know when I'll be back.
As an associate producer and writer for television news, my job can be stressful enough as it is. None of us even take breaks because of the demands of the job. But to have no commitment at all from my employer adds a whole new level of stress. Lately, my shifts have diminished to less than one per week. My debt is piling up along with my discouragement.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I know there are budget constraints, but you cannot treat your younger employees like this. My impression now is that the CBC is not a viable option for my future. Most of my friends feel the same way and are looking for a way out. Many have already left.
Imagine where you will be 10 or 20 years from now. Many of your full-time, experienced employees will be gone. If you don't invest in your future senior employees, there won't be any talent left.
This tenuous employment situation for so many young people is a cancer in the CBC. Please take action now before the harm is completely irreparable.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
