Postmaster in Winnipeg, MB
on 27 June 2022
It's okay company
Interesting thing about this job is that you get behind the scenes experience of postal service. Typical day - come to work and start sorting all incoming mail. By the time you finished there's a constant stream of people looking for their parcels, letters etc. Sometimes you might have a quiet hour or two, but mostly there's always something happening.

Mauvais mauvais choix ils pensaient qu'avec dix heures par semaine je pouvais nourrir ma famille, en plus ils m'ont dit que après six ans peut-être j'allais avoir temps plein

Productive and work balance
The work balance is good and flexible. Managers are great, and there is excellent team work. Though systems are often inefficient, you can see how the people involved are striving to improve them.
Post Office Assistant in Pickle Lake, ON

Friendly atmosphere; Lots of downtime
A typical day at work consists of selling postal products, inducting incoming/outgoing parcels, mail sortation, and delivery. Since it's an office in a small town, the workload is more than manageable. There will be times where you can be super busy (holiday peak-season), and other times where it is very slow (summer months, typically). The hardest part of the job is juggling between serving customers while at the same time sorting the daily mail. The most enjoyable part is when the mail is done being sorted - waiting for residents to pick up their mail and parcels.

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! :)
