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.
Postal Clerk (Part Time) (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 June 2017
The work area is always clean. The employees are friendly. The work is not heavy nor hard. The management is always careful in dealing with the workers. More often than not, the workers are always taken cared of.
during summertime, free meals are served like hot dogs, burgers....
if there are not much mail to be done, working hours become shorter...
Post Office Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 June 2017
A typical day at work was to attend to customer, ship out packages, and apply proper postage on packages. Once a week there was a parcel audit, and every night a postage audit . The environment was fun and flexible. The hardest part of the job was working alone in the store, especially during the christmas and tax seasons. The hardest part therefore was to finish up all tasks before day end during tax and christmas season. The most enjoyable part of my job was the work environment and support.
Lots of snow shoveling by your self. I learned how to efficiently shovel snow. I never met the management. Snow. The hardest part of the job was finding the motivation to get out of the house and shovel snow in -45 degrees Celsius weather and then have to do it every 1-2 hours. The most enjoyable part was the warm up breaks talking to the post office lady about whatever i talked about as a school kid.
Management, and especially upper management leaves a lot to be desired. They could all use some training in people skills ,and how to best handle thwre emoloyees properly and with respect.Especialky, when confkicts are happening in the work-place, and involving descrimintion, obvious and not so apparent.
holidays, dental plan, pension
over-worked, will not hire new staff as needed on a timely nature.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 18 June 2017
This job definitely requires devotion to the customers needs. Also it is definitely challenging because Canada Post employees is learning something new everyday because of the challenges they face and the responsibility to protects the clients mail that they take. It still remains interesting in my opinion because I see that my hard work pays off well when I get the customer's trust and I see them returning to me with a smile more often.

Sampler (Term Position) (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 15 June 2017
The best jobs I've ever had were while working for this company. They pay way above average for basic work and give you amazing benefits on top of that. The management are almost never around, so it can usually be pretty chill. 10/10 would recommend again.

Delivery Agent (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 June 2017
The Co-workers were really amazing. No matter how busy everyone got, they always took the time to answer all your questions. The hardest part about this job was the task they required you to do within an eight hour shift, knowing it would proceed past 10.
Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – London, ON – 1 June 2017
Overall I enjoyed working with Canada Post. Meeting customers on my route was the most enjoyable part of my job. I also enjoyed working in different parts of the city. The hardest part of the job was working in very unfavorable weather conditions.I learned how to deal with problem solve while out on the route.
Letter Carrier (Previous RSMC) (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 June 2017
Providing your own vehicle with costly delivery insurance and earning a maximum of 85% of what route holders earn is ridiculous. There are no permanent routes available in Sidney BC so full time work is obsolete, and no uniforms are provided. Expect to work a minimum of 12 hr days during Xmas earning less than minimum wage - as you watch On Call Letter Carriers in fully provided uniforms earn $19.86 p/hr driving company vehicle with overtime paid after 7.5hrs - doing the EXACT same job. I worked for 6 months as a relief rural driver - and have now worked almost 4 yrs as a casual letter carrier where I am making three times the money. More opportunities for permanent employment as a Letter Carrier if you need a regular income.
Post Office Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 May 2017
Had a wonderful time working here. Great coworkers as well as very polite clients although sometimes you get the bad apple out of the bunch. I obtained a lot of new skills that I would not have learned had I not been employed here.
Mail Clerk (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 May 2017
It was a pretty standard government job,, with lots of favor for the supervisor and management over the employees. The workers union seems to be consistently losing in the battle for worker rights, with no true silver lining in sight.
