Great organization to work. Good pay and you meet a lot of people.
Pros: good income, physical work, stress free, meet a lot of people
Cons: most shifts are 10 hour bands which makes it difficult for family life
Being a courier for the last eight years at Purolator, I've met many great customers and colleagues that I've worked with. My typical day involves ensuring that my vehicle is safe to operate before leaving the terminal, prioritizing my delivery and pickup stops, building good relationships with my customers, and ensuring proper unloading of hazardous materials at the end of day.
The management at my terminal is there to support the courier unit. They do an excellent job for the most part. You can always communicate any issues freely with them and they will followup within an acceptable time.
The best part of the job is the customers you meet. You start to develop relationships and be on first name basis with all of them pretty quickly. It's enjoyable for the most part (everybody has bad days) and as long as you are able to prioritize your time, pretty much stress free. You will work hard, but you won't have a lot of...annoyances that some jobs come with.
