Rural and Suburban Mail Carrier (Former Employee) – Paisley, ON – 10 October 2013
Great work environment. I am able to leave with my children and get home before they do. Benefits are a definite plus. You spend the first third of your day with coworkers then on the road for the rest.
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 April 2017
Other than being on call casual its ok. i believe they would have a better employee if they hired permanent. The work is very physical and draining. i strongly suggest you be in shape or you will suffer.
Mam10 Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 April 2017
From a skilled trades/maintenance perspective Canada Post is one of the most poorly run organizations I have worked for. The skills of coworkers are all over the map from excellent to pathetic. This I believe is due to the fact that many who work in maintenance have no formalized or accredited training ( licenses ) with most being former letter carriers. Production skilled trades are constantly being given work that is more related to house keeping than it is trades work such as vacuuming, dusting and changing forklift batteries. The wages for trades are below industry standards and the benefits aren't a whole lot better. New employees have to contribute to the pension plan which runs about $380.00 /month. Training on equipment unique to the mail sorting business is very sporadic and seems to be handed out in a preferential way. The people in trades who are competent in their work are helpful and informative. Maintenance management are constantly changing and have variable ability to manage skilled trades. Maintenance management gets little or no support from upper management. The best thing that can be said is that the employment is stable.
DELIVERY AGENT (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 10 April 2017
The environment used to be stress free but now it has become more demanding and stressful in expectations. Someone in a higher seniority that has grown with the company it'll be a great place to work; new employees will be a lot more stress and pressure to do their job with little security.
Superintendent Collection and Delivery (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 10 April 2017
Canada Post is moving ahead. The company is putting the correct measures in place to ensure competitiveness in the future. The introduction of new technology has galvanized a promising future for the Crown Corporation.
Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 3 April 2017
You could not ask for a better Company to work for! Respectful and happy environment . More like family then coworkers. I would recommend this job to anyone and everyone. If you have issues management is so kind and helpful.
Delivery Person (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 April 2017
Loading and unloading tubs of mail. Sort this into desk and pull for delivery. Spend about 3 hours doing that before going outdoors to deliver for the next 3-4 hours. Work is more focused on individual work with little team work although we share issues we need to deal with. I enjoy this job because I am able to work on my own at a relatively fast pace.
Temporary, On-Call Postal Clerk (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 31 March 2017
As an on call postal clerk you will get called occasionally throughout the year, but most often around November/December/January.
You will sort incoming packages into various shelves/bins, based on postal code.
The pay is great, and the hours are typically night shift.
The system that calls you for shifts is terrible and you will find out that Canada Post has very little ability in organization. Also, corporate hates the union, the union hates corporate, and sometimes it feels like the workers hate everyone. Very negative work environment.
Estimated 10+ years before an on call postal clerk will get part-time or full-time permanent..
