Enjoyed the work until changes
Lettercarrier Casual (Former Employee), 70 Trillium Drive, KitchenerNovember 6, 2015
The work was physical and very hard at times, but I did enjoy my time there.
The changes made the job impossible to do, and since I needed to finish my education in bookkeeping I had to take time off as a Casual Letter carrier and focus on my schooling. In the end I had to leave the job since my availability was focused on school.



The work was very patchy in hours. some months I would have lots of work, and suddenly none.

I learned to be quick and walk/run far. total of 30 kilometers some days. organisation was a must.

Overall good place to work
Officer, Corporate Secretariat and Committees (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 26, 2015
Friendly and competent team. Although I would have liked continue working with CPC, my position was a contract/temporary role. Coming from a small organization (less than 100 staff), found that the biggest challenge was grasping the layers of processes to go hand-in-hand with working in a large company.

Secure employment with reasonable compensation but negative workplace culture.
Postal Clerk (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONOctober 30, 2015
Pros: Paid lunch breaks, indexed pensions, job security, paid leaves.
Cons: Very little incentive for improvement, poor organizational commitment of the average employee. Poor labour relations.
A very secure place to work once you achieve permanent status, which is not so easy to achieve now. Reasonably good pay and benefits and and working conditions. Enviable job security and an indexed pension. Some safety issues for external workers in particular. Above average paid leave provisions.
Very little incentive for improvement; poor organizational commitment of the average employee. Unmotivated employees are allowed to drag the organization down. Poor labor relations.

I was only a cover worker but the time I did spend in the office, the staff were always respectable and nice. The time always went by fast and I enjoyed the customers and early mornings to mid afternoons.

Terrible place to work
Supervisor (Current Employee), HalifaxOctober 16, 2015
Cons: Frequently expected to skip breaks and lunches, yet somehow penalized for doing so.
Management is unreasonable, rude and continuously neglects to acknowledge that they can't keep anyone on staff for more than a few months as a result of their management. The team is short staffed as a result, and the remaining employees are expected to pick up the slack while maintaining the same deadlines. You are expected to work from home at all times, and the corporation is generally disorganized.

Mail sorter, L7 and L9 fork life driver (Current Employee), Saint-Laurent, QCNovember 14, 2015
Pros: good pay
Cons: uncertainty as concerns how many hours I'll work
We sort mail, specifically parcels. Management is respectful of workers. My co-workers are respectful. Hardest part of job is not knowing how many I'll work during the week since I'm on call. I remained on call because I can't work graveyard shifts.
