Productive workplace involving organization and sorting of packages.
On-call Postal Clerk (Plant Operations) (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 10 June 2016
On-call based job position. When called to work you either accept or decline the offer. At work there are several conveyor belts that have boxes, packages, and parcels on them. We are required to sort them to their respective compartments. Also need to create cardboard boxes and tape them up, as well as move full loads to their respective areas (based on location it is being sent to). Need to also unload trucks full of packages that are placed on the main conveyor belt.
I learned great organization skills and learned to be time efficient. Also learned to work well with others to get the job done in a quick and efficient manner.
Supervisors were very helpful and respectful to the workers there. They placed great emphasis on the safety of the workers more than how quick the job was done (back mechanics and lifting of heavy boxes).
My co-workers were very helpful considering I am small-made, they helped me carry the larger boxes when I needed assistance.
Hardest part of my job was managing time with school. Considering it is an on-call position, I was called to work in the midst of my final exams, making me unable to attend those calls, therefore missing the opportunity to go in for work.
The most enjoyable part of my job was organizing all the parcels. I enjoy organizing and had a fun time being able to sort packages into their respective compartments.
