Temporary Relief Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 17 November 2017
3 week training period they give you will not prepare you the demand of this job. you will be thrown in the lions den to fend for yourself. They will give you different route regularly and you will constantly go into those work days blind. It is an extremely frustrating and stressful job
Volume Counter (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 10 November 2017
It was a fun place to work while it lasted. People were great and it was fun to learn how your mail gets to us. the only downside is that is on call but you get more hours with more time working there.

DELIVERY AGENT (Former Employee) – GTA – 6 November 2017
The worst job I have ever had. Be ready to be moved around a lot, and to be made to work out of stations that are on the opposite side of the GTA than where you are located. Must be able to work well on own. Equipment such as vehicles are in a sad state of disrepair for new employees. Very little support available from management. This company cannot attract not retain talent because it is a terrible job that is not worth the pay.
Sort and deliver mail items in a safe and secure manner
Rural and Suburban Mail Carrier (Former Employee) – Vimy, AB – 2 November 2017
In the 4 years that I've been a rural and suburban mail carrier, there has been no opportunities for growth. This company doesn't offer any employee incentives or bonuses, very little raises. My job duties have over doubled in that time with zero recognition from upper management. Working out of a small town post office, I am responsible to find a security cleared individual with access to a personal vehicle in order to cover my route on days that I am sick or want a vacation or personal day. I have never taken my fully entitled vacation time. The one bonus is that I don't have a specific start time and my particular route allows me to handle personal affairs around my work time.
Poor pay, no days off, no advancement, no recognition
PRODUCTION DISTRIBUTION, (Current Employee) – London, ON – 2 November 2017
First of all you start off making at least seven dollars less an hour and then a full-time/ part-time worker. It will take you seven years to make top rate after you get hired on which could also take several years. Now that the bad stuff is said it is a good place work the schedule is flexible the other casuals are decent and friendly, however, full-time and part-time employees may not treat casuals as nicely as they would if you were hired on. This is a great place to work towards a future job, not the best scenario for a current job as you'll have to balance two jobs to keep your head afloat
Flexible schedule, good coworkers, easy work
Two-tier wage system. Undetermined hours per week.
Temp on call mail carrier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 October 2017
Ok pay, but management does not know how to deal with employees. All about low end emplyees working most for less pay, so management can get higher bonuses. Felt like a slave at times, and treated like garbage. Politics involved. Management inflict fair on emplyees. Disorginized organization, with no direction. Where union is useless, who licks management's behind, where the $63,000,000 annual union fees goes? No work and life balance, 8 to 10 hours on average day, with somedays with no brakes taken. Federal government should restructure this corrupted, slavery driven organization. Co workers on the other hand were nice.
If you get to last there 40 years you be crippled but with good pension.
Hard work, slavery, politics, no work and life balance.
