Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 17 January 2017
I enjoyed eachone of my coworkers. I did not like the way in which management dealt with new carriers. I was put in a dangerous situation by management simple because they wanted to get mail out quickly. I was injured, then forced to report for work. even though I was not physically capable of completing any tasks associated with my job.
RSMC - Customer Service (Former Employee) – Preeceville, SK – 17 January 2017
Canada Post offers excellent pay, benefits, and opportunity for advancement. But you have to be flexible and prepared for any number of challenges during a day. The work requirements are high. High sales, high volume, and little room for error.
Rural Mail Carrier Replacement (Former Employee) – Escuminac, QC – 14 January 2017
While working with Canada Post, I enjoyed my time I spent delivering the mail. Sorted the mail and readied everything for my route. The hours were very sufficient for the customers on my route. I delivered to approx. 4 communities within the time frame allotted. Co-Workers were the best to work with. Very sufficient and took pride in their careers. Would very much love to work for this company again.
Wintery Weather was not the best weather to work in.
Casual Worker (Former Employee) – Powell River, BC – 14 January 2017
The job was a project job which was a few weeks long. The role was to count the number of pieces of mail that came through the specific geographical area in order to assess the number of staff and rural mailboxes needed. The staff were amazing and outgoing and I made good friends during that time.
Letter Carrier / MSC Driver / Clerk (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 9 January 2017
In the beginning working for Canada Post in hard work and long hours. But once you get used to it the work gets easier and you get faster the days do get shorter and you learn to love it. Most people are very nice to you and you look forward to the walk and seeing customers.

Rural and Suburban Mail Carrier (Current Employee) – BC – 3 January 2017
Every day is different. Every route is different. Letter mail and bulk are sorted into a case. Once completed then the sequenced mail is bundled together with the corresponding letter mail, into the appropriate stops. Parcels are pdt scanned and numbered according to stops distinguishing which items are for signature, safe drop, collect, leave at the door or parcel box. All mail, packets, parcels and flyers are loaded into your vehicle and transported to appropriate sites. Most co-workers are great. Some however feel the need to constantly powertrip and belittle others most days, with no consequences to their actions.
Working alone daily. Being outside. Working Mon-Fri.
Heavy lifting, oversized packages, weather, lots of flyers. Using your own vehicle.
Aministrative Postal Clerk (Current Employee) – Toronto – 31 December 2016
I learned,Federal Union Culture. Management is Partly Autocratic & Team Leaders. Co-workers are amazing & very very co-operative. The hardest part of the job is sometimes need to walk in the plant for 3 to 4 hours & the most enjoyable part of the job is to work on Facer machines.
Productive with supportive co-workers and friendly atmosphere
Temporary on call Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 13 December 2016
Fairly easy going as long you are well organized, you will learn a lot about how the mail system works and that there is much more to it than we see as consumers. Most co-workers are very friendly, supportive people that will do their utmost to help you succeed and get through the tough parts of the job. The hardest parts of the job are probably memorization of the various ways which you need to process mail dependent on circumstance and the adjustment to the physical demand on your body if you are a foot-walk letter carrier. There are many enjoyable aspects of the job from socialization to the work out it provides to the compensation and advancement opportunities, it all depends on your personality and what motivates you.
Mail Service Courier (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 12 December 2016
CPC could be a decent place to work but there is no future for drivers. They won't call you for weeks, then expect you to be available entire weeks getting only 4-5 hrs. in the heart of the day. You have to work elsewhere to make money yet the hours at CPC don't work well for having a second job. Older drivers never seem to quit and about half are only PT anyways. You would have to put up with a lot for many years just for PT. I was hired a part of a class of 16. When I quit, that was it. All 16 were now gone. They have to make this more attractive for casual employees to stay.
pay is decent and so are most coworkers
