Justin Boone - NFL Supervisor
"If I had to pick one thing specifically, it’s probably the ‘War Room.’ On NFL Sunday the whole team is in there and we have games on all six TVs and it’s such a great atmosphere. It’s the perfect combination of working at a high level and at the same time having fun!" Learn More.
Steve Surya - Developer

I have been working at theScore Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)
In a digital media landscape that is dominated by negative employment news and layoffs, theScore bucks the trend - and has been doing so for a long time. The company's small newsroom is always hiring - unlike basically every other newsroom in the country. From news editors, to video editors, to social media editors, to copy editors, theScore is always looking to add talent, not release talent, and that's been the case since the company's small newsroom launched in 2013. A work-hard, play-hard culture exists at the company, and employees are valued for their contributions, and recognized at multiple all-staff events (summer and winter holiday parties, for example) by management. theScore's mastered the little things: Gift cards for employees who go above and beyond the call of duty, a stocked kitchen full of drinks and snacks, a big projector screen during the World Cup so everyone can watch the action together ... and it's the little things that take a company to the next level. Opportunities for growth at the company exist - I can attest to that, as well as to the fact that many of my colleagues have received promotions as well. It's a dynamic, fast-paced environment, change is frequent, but in order to survive, the company must adapt, and theScore isn't afraid to fail. There's obviously a sports ethos that lives at the office: If you go down, go down swinging. The office is in the heart of downtown Toronto, and everyone who works in the newsroom takes pride in what they do.
Working nights and weekends can be challenging at times, the newsroom's schedule on the whole at times can be difficult to manage, especially on a personal level, but that's part and parcel of working in sports.
Advice to Management
Management has shown recently that it's willing to listen to employees who bring issues to the table, whether brought up directly or through anonymous company surveys. Management has also shown that it's willing to address said issues, and that's a major plus - it's one thing to listen, it's another to act. Everyone is hopeful that this continues into the future.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at theScore Inc. (Toronto, ON) in January-2018.
The phone interview was quite lovely and the woman I spoke to was easy to talk to, informative, and overall the most pleasant part of the experience. It pretty much ends there. I was brought it for an in-person interview, and the interviewer seemed completely uninterested in my experience or work ethic - rather he wanted to talk about how great the company was compared to it's competitors and why I liked them better. Basically they want you to tell them they are doing a better job. We didn't really click and I was completely happy to leave knowing that it wasn't a good fit for me. However, at the end of the interview, I was given a lengthy assignment to complete on a tight deadline. This was confusing considering how poorly I thought the interview had gone. I completed the assignment because I committed to seeing the process through, even though I no longer was interested in the position. About a week later I got a generic message from HR saying thanks but no thanks. The hiring manager didn't even have the decency to acknowledge my efforts or give me any feedback. I do think assignments are a great way to prove yourself, but I was disappointed by the lack of communication and respect shown to me throughout the entire process. I know the company has experienced a lot of turnover and they want to ensure you are up to the task, but this was a bit extreme. Due to the length of the assignment and the time commitment required, I was incredibly disheartened the hiring manager passed me off to HR and never communicated with me again.
