This was a great job for me, they provided ample training in a day and the workload was good to alway keep busy. There were times for indepenedent work and time to work in a team, the staff and management were wonderful to work with. I gained a lot of experience and had good feedback, for me that is a winning position.

Flexible temporary job
Postal Clerk (Former Employee), Richmond, BCMay 26, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours
Although there are many procedures to memorize, once you have done so, everything becomes quite straightforward. There was a lot of time with no customers so a lot of time was spent cleaning and organizing.

Great place to work, sometimes it's a pain
Ergonomic Assistant (Former Employee), Shubenacadie, NSMay 10, 2015
Pros: You're often back by the afternoon and therefore get to go home!
Cons: Sometimes you have to go out in bad weather.
Canada Post is certainly a decent place to work. Like all jobs though, it can be a pain.
Your typical day starts at around 7:15. You show up to work and start taking mail and parcels back to be sorted – more... at your table that have been sorted to your route. Usually there isn't a lot of mail unless there had been a holiday or it's Christmas time so you get out pretty fast. Then the rest of the job happens; delivering the mail. The route I worked with generally took 2-5 hours depending on how much mail there was. I gained a lot of appreciation for the people who deliver the mail!
One of the people things about the job has to be the co-workers. Everyone is so friendly and caring, almost like a big family! Sadly you only get to see everybody in the morning during sorting time. – less

colour code case plans for Letter Carrier (Former Employee), 955/951 Highbury Avenue London ONApril 8, 2015
Pros: Great people, good benefits and pay
Cons: Ongoing union challenges
I have had many opportunities to learn different area of the company and have worked with many challenging personalities. My co-workers were great, friendly helpful people. Management at times can be hard to see the workers point of views. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the start to finish in the work process.

Abusive
On Call letter carrier (Former Employee), OttawaMarch 25, 2015
Worked as a on Call letter Carrier. Salary is reasonable but the job is extremely demanding mostly physically , Expect to be Deprived from benefits for more than 2 years . The corporation is badly divided – more... into labour and management, and both have separate and totally different rights and benefits, the result is a very wild and cruel senior management. Mostly you'll be used during the harsh winter days to work and unintentionally be used to threaten old employees (those who have high benefits and the corporation want to replace them with cheap employment with no benefits like us. but the good things is that you'll have very nice and easy going colleagues, and you'll be on shape but expect back and knee problems after you just finish the long probation period – less

Cons: management; and loooooongg hours
It takes forever to sort the amount of mail I have. I have to be in there by about 6 in the morning so that I can get done at a decent time. Management is horrible; they did not send in two weeks from February and still have not sent them in.The co-workers are amazing and are the only bright part of the day;

RSMC's are not valued like a regular mail carrier.
Rural/Suburban Mail Carrier (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 5, 2015
Pros: manager of your own time to an extent
Cons: very, very long and mismanaged days.
Which will only spell big trouble for a company transitioning all its emloyees to RSMC's. Their salary range does not reflect the actual hours demanded of an RSMC.
