    I have been working at Transcontinental full-time

    Pros

    I'm amazed at the breadth of products and services that TC Transcontinental offers. You really have to be either a competitor or a client to know what TC does. Even then, you wouldn't know how huge and diverse this company is. Only when I started working at TC that I realized the gigantic footprint of the company in Canada. Workwise, I really like the culture and management. The people are smart and sharp. I feel challenged everyday and I'm learning so much.

    Cons

    I'm surprised that many people don't know the company that well despite all the brands we own and the services we provide. Understandably TC is mostly B2B and not B2C. I find I have to explain to friends, family and acquaintance what TC does. I don't mind though, I'm proud of working at TC.

    Not great.

    Former Employee - Newspaper Deliverer in Dartmouth, NS (Canada)

    I worked at Transcontinental part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked as a paper-delivery boy, for The Weekly News in Dartmouth, N.S., and I suppose it was nice to walk about the neighbourhood.

    Cons

    In the beginning, the papers were really thin, and I got ten cents per paper!
    Not a bad deal at the time, however, they added so many advertisements, that eventually, we were given an additional stack of ads thicker than the paper itself to deliver, without a penny of extra pay!
    Outrageous.
    I tried to quit the job, and had a very difficult time contacting anyone.
    Very disorganized and mismananged company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get route supervisors who do their job, and if you're going to double the amount of work for deliverers, then provide proper compensation!

    I worked at Transcontinental full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The IT team members are nice poeple, even if not always able to face the challenges

    Cons

    Very bad decisions about team management, ways to work, IT technologies.
    Always very late on any aspect of websites development.
    No formations, or very few with contracts to sign that may you stay for a minimum of 6 months.
    Very heavy protocol that doesn't really face reality in most cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ real managers... not simply take the one with most year in Transcontinental...
