Delivery Relief Driver (Former Employee) – Duncan, BC – 9 April 2017
Sort Parcels in the morning and organize for delivery. Most drivers can have anywhere between 60 - 130 stops per day and there isn't any vacation time within this job as it's up to you to find relief drivers. Management pulls the trump card when it suits them. For example if they really need something they will spin the verbiage to suit their needs.
May life up to +80lbs per box but the most enjoyable part of the job is the customers. Being an owner/operator you will have to provide you're own 1 ton or sprinter vehicle depending on job description and mileage isn't paid at a competitive rate.

PM Sorter (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 March 2017
earned 18 an hour, but only worked for 3 hours a day back breaking work, injuries often and they simply don't care, because you can be replaced. safe is not an option, many pinch points, and heavy material over the weight for the scales. its a hush hush world.. and don't send your packages, they will get broken!
fun to work with love making others smiles and ask if everything is okay with them.

Utility Courier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 February 2017
Company is in the process to cut back . The union is negotiating a new contract starting in 2017. The management is disorganized and causes more confusion within the company. There are lot of deliveries to be made every day but no jobs available. I was let go due to being hired as a temporary Christmas help even though full time drivers were bringing back deliveries. Its tough to get a full time job there. All for the sake of corporate profits.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 30 December 2016
I loved working here because of the team environment and interacting with all sorts of different people every day. I definitely learned to work with different kinds of personalities and dispositions. I would happily work here again.
I learnt a lot about the shipping and delivery industry. I worked there when they had a lot of goods coming in because Canada Post was on strike. It was like the boxes were never ending, but somehow we managed to get through that period and successfully deliver the overflow. You get an idea of what people in Winnipeg are buying and selling which is very valuable information. My manager would join us once in a while to load and unload boxes, and overall it was a very good place to work.
