The management at this job made me suicidal with aggressive and dishonest behavior and abusive attitudes. I tried to make complaints through the official channels and ended up being prevented from working for over 4 months while they string me along. When returning to work I received a review journaling all the abuse I had dealt with, but with me as the guilty party. I can't count the times that it made me sick how they treat people here. They don't pay you enough for the behaviour of your superiors, no matter how much they smile and pretend to be your friends.

I strongly feel that every Postal office regardless of size or number of routes should have their own relief driver to cover their routes when needed. With the use of the right hand drive postal trucks! Give the RSMC's the people they need without having to struggle with finding someone to cover their routes when needed. Make it more encouraging for employment opportunities not discouraging.

Bullying and harrassment from both fellow employees and management. Union works in snail mode which I believe is why it continues as bad as it is. Management knows it takes years for the union to get stuff to arbitration and they use that to their advantage. I was a union rep and became vice president of a local in Hope's to make a difference but made little difference. The high ups need to get the paper work done and in front of an arbitrator. The only good thing about being the vice president I sat in on Consultations with management and stop.some of their lies about the office I worked in. I sat there fighting for a position they gave to a junior employee while they pretended they knew nothing. Very infuriating. Mana9is a real piece of work they plays employees against each other.

I just completed my training.
3 nights in class computer e learning in a windowless room at the back of a depot for 8 hours each night with a sarcastic trainer that obviously did not care about us, then a 'tour day' starting at 7:45a.m. of 8 hours riding along with a letter carrier that wasn't thrilled to have to take someone along on their route slowing them down, then 3 more nights of e learning..followed by 5 days of 'on the job' training where you are paired with a letter carrier who, if you are lucky, won't be angry at you for slowing them down while trying to learn what to do at depot and on the street. After working for 5 days,you are back at the classroom for 8 hours to do a 40 question exam and then the sortation test (sorting 120 letters into a sortation case)where you are allowed ONE mistake..or guess what? You are fired. People were fired.

If you pass, you then have 8hours of Human Rights training followed the next day by 8 more hours of training with the union rep.

We were supposed to then have 5 days of 'onboarding'..which is shifts out on the street delivering on your own..but guess what?

It was taken away from us because it was deemed that we might be taking hours away from current employees.

So now we are 'on call'..sitting at home every day waiting for a call to work.

Have never worked with a company where everyone was so miserable and unwelcoming to new recruits. Definitely felt like everyone is out for themselves.
