Was close to home, and staff had a great sense of humor.
Mail Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 26, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: odd hours.
Colleagues were very friendly. Eye opener on Unionized environment, as they were very big on rights and filing grievances when approached by a supervisor without a shop steward not being present.

Supervisors weren't the people to go to when one had a question, as they didn't know the process themselves. The full-time staff knew much more than the supervisors. – more... Job was physical, which was a good thing - kept one in physical shape, mind you it wasn't very mentally stimulating.

Operated machines and hand sorted mail. – less

Being able to work outdoors with minimal supervision and taking care of my customers to the best of my abilities.
Rural and Suburban Mail Carrier (Former Employee), Brandon, MBNovember 25, 2013
Pros: working outdoors
Cons: using my own vehicle
The management team was very flexible in allowing me to schedule my deliveries around my sons school year. As a single mom this was very helpful. I learned how important it is to know all aspects of a route in order to efficiently delegate all details of the job to new employees. The hardest part of the job would have adjusting to the seasonal change – more... and volumes of parcels and mail flow during the fall/winter season. However the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work outside and all the relationships I was able to build with the customers on my mail route. – less

A very fast pace hectic almost chaotic environment
Letter Carrier (Temporary On-Call) (Current Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 20, 2013
Pros: you stay physically fit
Cons: takes a toll on your body
Everyday is pretty much the same. We collect our mail and other delivery items such as flyers ad mail and packets and sort them into our route cases which takes about an hour and a half depending on the work load for that day. Once our mail is sorted we load our trucks and head to begin our routes.

Management may get a bad rep but they do as good as – more... job as they can to maintain status quo between upper management and staff.

Co-workers also act as a support system willing to help out and give advice where they can to relieve some of the pressures you may face on you routes and in the workplace.

The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to enjoy the out doors when there is good weather but the total opposite when the weather is bad. – less

Canada Post should advertise Looking for pack mules not delivery agents
Former Letter Carrier (Former Employee), Edmonton,AlbertaNovember 17, 2013
Pros: decent pay and benifits
Cons: long hours, benifits don't kick in till your perm, carry lots of weight, no time for your personal life or family.
This company does NOT care about its employees or their family's. I worked there for 7 years and saw a lot of good hard workers get crapped on by Canada Post and quit. Canada Post only cares about one thing and that is money and how they can make more. In the past year I seen good people quit and not have any other job lined up, just so they didn't – more... have to put up with the Canada Post. They make you carry more then 35 pounds I carried 172lb at time in my satchel at time. Flyer mean more then mail to them as it worth more money to them. If you work there be aware that you will not have time for you personal life or family as Canada Post wants you to stay out until all the mail is deliver and parcels as well, They can force you into overtime even if you don't want to do any and also if you have overtime on the walk you are on you have to fight for your overtime pay. If you work there GOOD LUCK. I am glad I QUIT!!! – less

You can make it a fun place to work at.
LETTER CARRIER (Current Employee), OakvilleNovember 16, 2013
I go to work fairly early,pick up my mail and sort it into my case after doing that I sort through my parcels. After everything is in I tie out my mail load everything into my vehicle for delivery. Our supervisors are great and make it easy to talk to with any problems. I find the hardest part of the job is having to deal with the weather and of course – more... we have our busy season.The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with and the flexability I have. – less

This is a company that does not care about employees
Delivery Planner (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCNovember 1, 2013
Pros: great benefits for union workers
Cons: don't care about their employees
If you are in a union, this is a great job! If you are not.....so sorry!
This company preaches values and work/life balance but never follows through. The bottom lines rules and management is overpaid and the company is top-heavy.

If you are non-union, regardless of years of service, if they need to cut costs, you are gone! No warning, no options, – more... just gone..... – less

Mail Sorter (Current Employee), LondonOctober 31, 2013
Pros: was it is full time around christmas
Cons: casual on call
I enjoyed sorting the mail and I got to learn the postal codes of all the streets in London. I enjoyed working with the management team as well as all of my co workers. The hardest part of the job is that it is only a call in basis and the most enjoyable part of it is that the time goes by fast.

Canada Post Corporation AMMP Project
Asset Maintenance Management Project $25M (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 24, 2013
Pros: great mix of seasoned employees with new employees with fresh ideas.
Cons: getting all teams to aligned & doing their work.
A smaller project compared to the huge Postal Transformation but interesting as changing the culture of the Maintenance Department within Canada Post. Was able to work with my speciality which was the spare parts required by maintenance to maintain the equipment. A typical day consisted of working with large spreadsheets and using VLOOKUP and Pivot – more... Tables to build the Bill of Materials for each type of equipment.

The project was fun as it had the support from all levels of management and was sorely need to replace the old mainframe system.

The co-workers were great and the hardest part of the project was getting the Master Equipment List for each site finalized and approved. The most enjoyable part of the project was learning the power of VLOOKUP and Pivot Tables which greatly reduced the amount of time required to build the Bill of Materials. – less

Contract Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Kamloops, BCSeptember 24, 2013
Cons: paid at a set rate even if the run took longer
A typical day at work consist of grabbing all your mail from different areas in the factory, sorting it out by yourself in your own cubical. If I had any questions I could ask fellow employees or even the manager. Hardest thing to deal with was the Scanner, but once I had the hang of it,it was a walk in the park.

General Labourer and Transportation (Former Employee), Windsor, OnSeptember 11, 2013
Pros: meeting new people
At first worked in the plant with the sorting machines. I was required to sort the mail per postal codes. Daily quota's were 5000 an hour. I had no problems with management or co-workers. I eventually transferred to transportation because they offered full time positions. I then worked by myself. I loaded my truck and made drop offs to various locations.
