The Co-Op Diaries: Life at Shout Media
Working at Shout Media is the place to be if you want to be working in the field of media arts.
There are a variety of things to do from graphic designing, working on websites, to printing. Everyone has a job to do and sometimes there’s too much work especially around Christmas time. Shout Media does media for different kinds of places. For example; car dealerships, restaurants, and other small businesses around town. The people in this place are super nice to talk to no matter your age. When I get an assignment, I feel no hesitation to ask for help. I enjoy working with the people here because they are very inclusive to new members and everyone jokes around.
Everyone works as a team to get things done.
When ideas are shared, it is respected and talked about in a appropriate manner. Everyone works as a team to get things done. Some of the assignments were really fun and some not so much, but that’s what you’re going to get at any job you do. As a co-op student I tend to dabble in all different stuff. Most of the time I’m downstairs helping Dana print things, but when I’m upstairs I try to find content for Jasmin and Ashley to put on their clients’ social media pages and websites. I do other stuff as well, like cleaning. For example I clean up the place by sweeping before and after important board meetings, and organizing files which is somewhat fun because I’m OCD like that. My favourite thing that I got to do was doing a plastic seal on business cards.
On the main floor there is a line of computers with people at them working. The meeting room has two glass walls. In the basement there’s a little area for the printer and that’s where all of the advertisement development takes place. For a regular worker in this place they usually work from 9 am to 5 pm and get a hour break. For me I work from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm as a co-op student. Sometimes when a special day comes up or we just want to do something special, everyone plans what food they’re going to bring and we all create a food party. In the area there are tons of different places to eat from: Chinese, Thai, BBQ, northern eatery, and if you don’t like that there’s a grocery store not too far away if you drive.
