Learn to overcome working outside - Too much bureaucracy
Letter Carrier (Permanent Part-Time) (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB18 July 2018
Good mental and physical challenges to keep job fresh.
Difficult to secure fulltime work as highly compeitive. Not able to get full-time hours at first.
Must be flexible to sort and deliver mail anywhere in Edmonton- tend to be assigned and work out of a regular depot.
Speak with fellow letter carriers to find tips and tricks to get faster and to dress appropriately for changing daily weather.
Acquire Canada Post attire asap.
If injured, be aware that WCB uses their own doctors and schedules for being fit to return to work. This is often too ambitious and insufficient.
poor to no benefits until full-time which can take years.
Pros
Do work on own schedule, outside every day, get to know city much, much better
Cons
outside every day, Management is very authoritative/NOT collaborative, expect WCB team not to consult you or to ask for your opinions

DA (Current Employee) –  195 wicksteed1 July 2018
Horrible
They pay $19... $4 above the minimum wage... how is that a good pay? I call it poverty rate
Exream work conditions. If you can't take 35c or -25c for 8+ hours, not the job for you
Constant Bullying by some supervisors
Watch out, Canada post is the worst company I worked at hands down
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Very stressful and very low pay

Employees are treated very badly.
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) –  Post, CA30 June 2018
Unrealistic expectations on employees, excessive volumes of mail, parcels and flyers for letter carriers.
If employees get injured disability is difficult to get and if you do get it you are expected to return to work before you have completely recovered and if you do return the company will try to make things so difficult you will want to quit. Once injury you are considered a liability and easily expendable
Cons
Treated very poorly!

Awesome place to work
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) –  Dieppe, NB24 June 2018
I love working for Canada Post. It's a long wait to get in to full time though because it is union and it goes by seniority.
They treat you well and the pay is really good.

good pay, has pros and cons
Relief Letter Carrier (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON17 June 2018
good company to work for, training is great and the starting pay rate is good. takes some adjusting to get used to and organization is key. pros of working on your own with nobody to bother you and if finished early can leave early, but can be very tiring and draining and hard on the body sometimes, and first little while of working as a letter carrier, there are some discouraging moments and frustrating moments. people are helpful at the depot but delivery in the beginning takes time and can be confusing, so some days can be long or overtime will be needed.
Pros
good pay rate, if completed work early, can go home
Cons
physically tiring at times, can be confusing and frustrating in beginning, gets discouraging

Very toxic and unhealthy place to work
Driver and P04 (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 June 2018
My experience with Canada Post for 8 of the 12 years I was working were very toxic and unhealthy for me. I was always pick on by management and then co-workers jumped into.
I have been threaten with a gun, hit and these people were never suspended let alone fired for these situations.
In the end I had to resign in order to be healthy.
Pros
Pay was good
Cons
Management is very unprofessional and pass the buck alot

Great place to work if you don't mind hard work.
Postal Clerk (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB7 June 2018
A good place to work for those that like to work. Moving around heavy parcels is not for everyone but steady work, and the shifts fly by. But hard to get permanent work.
Pros
Good starting pay.
Cons
Hard to get a permanent job.

Very labour intensive but exciting career
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 June 2018
The job is very labour intensive based on the fact you're walking and climbing steps most of the day while carrying mail along with you. But, the fact that you get to be outside and meet new people everyday makes it fun.
