Post Office Clerk in Lillooet, BC
on 5 July 2021
Hard to get into and political
The term positions are garbage and especially in small towns the work places are so political and the people generally suck. If you get over all that and land a long term position you’re all set.
Volume Counter in Vancouver, BC
on 24 July 2021
Great place for those looking to gain job experience.
The volume count position at Canada Post offers a great opportunity for people new to the job market to gain work experience. It's also a great way to supplement your income as this is a part-time seasonal contract basis job where you usually don't work more than three hours a day. Of course, this isn't going to be a main source of income for people but the position doesn't intend to do that either. The job itself is very simple; you simply count mail and fill out the corresponding case count forms. The work environment is great and occasionally you are left with a lot of idle time but you are getting paid so it doesn't matter.
Post Office Clerk Letter carriwr in Vancouver, BC
on 19 July 2021
Toxic Management Culture
70 years of horrible labour relations led to a culture of nepotism, punitive labour culture. Targeting and harrassment of certain workers from.mgt for their own career advancement. Punitive not corrective discipline. An overburdened workforce given unrealistic workloads designed on covertly manipulated work measurements data. And the workers are blamed not the workload. Seniority system ensures new hires wirkave hardest work for less pay forced upon them through legislation.
Inside Depot Worker in Barrie, ON
on 8 July 2021
Disorganized and petty
Management is horrible to work for. They do not even care enough to provide fans in the summer. All management care about is their bonuses! Sadly disappointed ☹️ Union only cares about full time letter carriers. No care for part time or casual employees or inside depot workers. Union is horrible and self serving. I would opt out if I could.
Warehouse Worker in Sudbury, ON

Fall in line and shut your mouth
Overall a terrible place to work in my opinion. Innovation and efficiency are discouraged - ignorance and carbon copy unionized entitlement is praised

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.

For holiday temporary clerk job: Online basic IQ test with 10 minutes limit on multiple 4-choice questions, including picture orientation logic, memomorization test, reading comprehension of article, basic number logic (walk block).
