Been working for over a year and half straight. It's by contract so you have to work everyday or you don't get paid. Majority of my customers don't know me and they have petty complaints that are mostly false and the company doesn't really care about it's Carriers. The only pros are I don't have a boss standing over me and I only work part time for full time compensation.
No days off. Request month in advance
Nobody cares anymore, news print media is dead. After hearing and seeing this every day for the rest of your life (7 days a week, no vacation, no sick days, no holidays, no excuses ie. car broke, weather, my significant other just crashed and has been life flighted "to bad, go finish your route") youll realize this to be true from top to bottom at this company. This is only the tip of the iceberg of stories i could tell. They should all rot in heck for the things they have said and done including trying to make someone under mandatory quarantine for coronavirus go out and deliver and spread it to all the mainly elderly customers. Yeah, that happened too!
No thanks to the buffalo news. The worst place ever to work. I worked 365 days a year. If you take a day off you get fired. I never missed ,was never late. The buffalo news stole lots of money from my check that I can never get back. If anything having that job set me back a couple years financially
Buffalo News did not have advancement after starting in the warehouse on the Assembly line. For 2 and a half years I went through alot of pain in my feet working in their cemented warehouse. I repeatedly spoke to the Supervisor regarding working in their offices to apply my Administration Degree skills. They never allowed me to work in their office environment.
The focus of this aging company is it's digital product which lacks direction and relevancy. Not only does the digital product lack relevant content, it lacks content in general, with some journalistic focus on what they think is best for you, not the choices consumers want. There is some management and executive staff that believe they know what is best, instead of seeking out those with long tenure and knowledge. Ideas are most often thrown into a drawer. Family and friends continues to provide direction into a brick wall with a culture of have and have-not.
The pride has been scraped away

Mailroom helpers beware. You will work unreasonable hours and be scheduled for any and all shifts, day and night. Not a suitable place to work for someone attending school or who has a family. Also, not a good fit for someone with a religious convictions or morals. Consider a different department or company all together. Best of luck!
Good money but No days off, No sick time... You gotta work every night no excuses. Anyone who can handle that are some of the hardest workers I've met.
Work only 25 hrs. a week and checks are from $250-350 depending on customers you have at that time
Work every night 7 days a week. If you miss a paper comes out your check
No longer for me, but it was employment while i went back to school, very difficult hour's, had to deliver the papers weekly by 6 AM, no days off not even holidays. Its ok at best but it not for me anymore
Only a few hours a day
No days off
People not in my department we’re great people. In my department I was bullied, belittled and embarrassed in front of my peers. Working 7.5 hours a day was a bonus. If you voiced your opinion on a issue you were shut down immediately. Managers and above are two faced. Lie to your face and then deny it. Always were threatened that you can cause a union grievance. Print media is a dying medium. Ad revenue is down. Web site is a joke compared to other newspapers web sites.
Lunch on premise
Good place to work if you do not want to retire. However, will need to supplement income with another employment opportunity. The company is unionized and raises are few. There is no forced retirement so an employee does not have to worry about age discrimination as with certain jobs. Young and seniors work together in a warehouse setting. Fast paced. Will stand for long periods of time but will have to have an ability to learn and perform other tasks.
Employees very friendly
It a job for those who don't mind getting up before 6 am . Those that like being their own boss.those that don't mind running through vechiles.it is very high demand that you are on time and making sure you don't miss delivering the papers.
You don't get time off
The truck was not always on time even though the papers had to be delivered by 7 am. I liked to work for myself when i was delivering. I liked to work with different people.
I liked working by myself
I didn't like the fact we could be fined for a late paper
This job was working midnights, 365 days a year, outside, in all kinds of weather. I enjoyed delivering the paper, and the money was good, but I needed a break from the midnight shift. The District Managers were not much help. I rarely saw them, and they didn't always return calls, and get me the supplies that I needed on time. The truck bringing the papers to Lockport was often late. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great tips I received from customers, and the compliments from them.
Made great money, and great tips.
365 days a year, midnights.
Fast paced Circulation Department. Incoming calls high during snow storms or when there may have been an issue with the presses, however when all was taken care of everyone received their papers it was rewarding to know that you assisted someone.
