Mail Clerk - Mail Carrier (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 8 December 2017
A typical day with Canada post as a deliverer or as a clerk is very similar from office to office. The jobs performed each day are quite a wide range of different jobs such as sorting, bundling, redirecting, imputing parcels, dealing with customers, and opening and closing the office. The hardest part of my job is often dealing with customers. Since dealing with mail can often be dealing with people's livelihood if there are any mistakes in the system, it affects people in large ways which can cause frustration with customers, understandably so. I have learned a great deal of skills working with Canada post which is quite valuable and will be useful in the future. The hardest part of working for Canada post is the politics involved with the current management.

Operatioms Supeevospr (Current Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 26 August 2017
I find that the Superintendents expectations are very different. Some Supervisors get away with mistakes that cost the company a lot of money and there is no accountability. Where other Supervisors are held accountable for the smallest things. If mgmt doesn't like you then your chance for advancement doesn't exist. A lot of favortism and still very male dominated on the mgmt side.
Pay is good. Benefits are okay
Working very hard with np appreciation while other supervisors do very little.

great job, very labor intensive at times, high volume season is very difficult, very competitive when it comes to bidding on better positions, same rules don't always apply to everyone but that are the work place politics of it.

Delivery agent/letter carrier (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 August 2017
It can also be very physically demanding, long hours. You don't finish until the mail is all delivered. Some parcels are very heavy and the amount of flyers that need to be processed with the mail can be overwhelming
