Postal Clerk in Calgary, AB
on 10 May 2022
Above industry wage but no career progress.
If you want to remain where you are for the rest of your life and guaranteed job security, this is the place for you. No career advancement unless you 'belong' or know someone in upper management.

Postal Clerk
Postal Clerk for over 3 years. Easy and simple. Sorting all parcels and package, and not a fast pace, but take a easy and do a good job. Also sort the envelope

good opportunity to learn, grow, count envelopes, look at birds in the plant, experience the side of people brought out in unionized work environment, occasional cold pizza lunch provided for price of listening to management.
Casual Labourer in Cranbrook, BC

Think twice prior to applying .............
Full honestly its a unionized company, might as well be two large corporations only looking out for the higher paid members of both. The culture is toxic and negative. During covid we were treated poorly and our concerns constantly dismissed. Your lucky if you get a good morning from the senior management. I am so happy I got out of there. The management lies and promises full time hours, but yet cant seem to follow through with anything. The lack of consistent leadership and communications is evident and actually embarrassing. No professionalism, no long term thought to decision making...supervisors lack integrity and actual any management experience. They take their direction from someone no one ever meets. Think long and hard prior to wasting your time, you might get tons of training hours, but in actuality your just being used to move parcels for three weeks until they use up your training hours....then can't give you anything else. This is not a Company that empowers their employees and they hire management personal with NULL experience in working with people.

only worked at CP for a few weeks to do the training and then a few shifts here & there as on call casual. It's notoriously hard to get a permanent position and the work is difficult. So many procedures and protocols to follow I couldn't remember many things after training as you use them so infrequently and work so little after getting hired.

Interview questions

The interview was very relax. **I applied for postal clerk** First the person talks about the job and what they expect from you. Some questions asked were: -Why would you want to work at post canada? -Are you bilingual? -Are you able to read and write well? -Do you have experience in a warehouse? -What are some safety measures to take while in a warehouse? -What would you do if the supervisor was in back of you telling you to go faster? -Give me a scenario where you took charge when the managers were not around -Do you own steel toe boots? -Are you able to lift 50lbs? -What are your availabilities * we talked for a bit but the questions are very easy. After the interview, I had to go get my fingerprints scaned and sign some papers Good luck! :)

Why do you want to work at c.p. What would you do if: You've finished your work early. You see a white powder. An emergency of some kind. Can you lift 50lbs. Er no.
