Canada post is a huge machine
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 August 2017
Letter Carrier is the hardest job ive done for 19.81 per hour. You have to deliver 70 parcels 50 packets 4 sets of 500 flyers plus mail and signature items on a route you have never done before and be expeted to complete in 8hours. It will wear out your body and back. You have to be in tip top condition.
Pros
waiting to get full time in another department - paid holidays
Cons
being a temp

Old school work culture but good pay
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC26 August 2017
Canada Post has a very old school mindset and uses their pay as justification for employees to stay. The work culture is toxic and employees generally are unsatisfied.

Lots of Politics and people are not treated the same.
Operatioms Supeevospr (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON26 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.
Pros
Pay is good. Benefits are okay
Cons
Working very hard with np appreciation while other supervisors do very little.
