Postal Clerk (Former Employee), Richmond, BC – May 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.
Ergonomic Assistant (Former Employee), Shubenacadie, NS – May 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 ON – April 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.

On Call letter carrier (Former Employee), Ottawa – March 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
Rural and Suburban Mail Carrier (Current Employee), Regina, SK – March 19, 2015
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;
