Very productive job and everyday is a different day

Pros: Watching the students grow up and become adults
Cons: long hours
I love working for Edmonton Public for the past 20 years. Everyday is a new and exciting day never know what to expect. My experience there has given me the computer skills that I can use in every job – more... situation. The staff are all super nice. The hardest part of my job is that I get several interruptions during the day but the job gets done and I can go home satisfied that I tried my hardest to complete my jobs to do list. – less
Mail Clerk/Shipper/Receiver (Current Employee), Edmonton, Alberta – November 6, 2014
Pros: heated underground parking, treats, donuts, etc from different depts.
Cons: finishing or doing other peoples work in order to complete my own.
I work independently running the mailroom and loading dock sorting incoming interoffice mail from over 200 locations in the city. I process all incoming and outgoing postal mail. Make deliveries to 30+ – more... departments in a 4 story building. I accept, log in and distribute various items ranging from envelopes to dangerous goods.I also lift heavy boxes and such on daily basis.
I enjoy this position as I can freely move about the building interacting with co-workers. It also allows me to lend a helping hand to others when needed.
Although the job is generally repetitive in nature, the workload itself can vary day to day and same goes with the difficulty depending on the nature of the deliveries.
At times work policies and procedures change, so must my work habits and I am quick to adapt to all changes.
I am allowed to make decisions regarding critical deliveries and finding solutions to various problems that arise.
The most difficult aspect of my job is not being able to complete my work as I am required to do 2 other positions along with my own. At times this can become very stressful. – less
