Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 January 2018
It was the most stressful job environment I have ever worked in. Low morale was a constant. Supervisors always practised favouritism. The unionized members and Management had a very volatile & unproductive relationship.
Letter Carrier - Temp, On-call (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 15 January 2018
I passed the 4 week training course with flying colors so I thought i'd do great since I worked as a courier for many years before this job. Truth is, they don't train you with what you will encounter in real life; self-important co-workers, overwhelming amounts of work, always feeling used and abused and constant cutbacks. I had to quit due to the lack of heat in my hands during the winter; you will be stuck outside for long periods without time or a place to warm up or use the bathroom.
Being outdoors and friendly public interactions
-50 windchill and disrespect towards new hires. Unrealistic expectations.
