Letter Carrier/Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 March 2018
I think I had the most fun working as a letter carrier as I was an SLC which means I did holiday relief. Every week or two I would be on a new walk and meeting more customers all the time. It was great exercise and I enjoyed being outdoors no matter what the weather.
postal clerk (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 21 March 2018
I would be given a list of things that needed to be done at the start of the shift and I would then do them and hand the final total to the supervisor at the end of the shift. The hardest part of the job was lifting the heavy bags of mail to be dumped and then sorted.

Retail is loaded with challenges and athough serious, fun to interact with customers and their requests. Training constantly to upgrade for new services and features. Friendly workplace. Must be able to work without supervision. Best part...daytime hours. No down side.

Great place to have a career. Positive, fun and energetic environment to work at, and co-workers the same. I came to Canada Post after being in mostly the construction trades for over 7 years and its been the best job/career ive ever had. Canada post provides their employees with excellent salaries, benefits and pensions. and the company shares values that people would look for in a great employer, they provide an environment which keeps employees happy, safe and in turn productive. the job can at times be challenging during peak winter seasons, but the summer season is great. The management is excellent aswell, they listen to their employees and are very understanding and will always try to work with their employees on any issue. and u feel as though you aren't just another number on the pay roster. Im proud to be and employee of Canada post.
Overall, the work is pretty heavy for women, not having any gender discrimination. If you have a good physical condition and a truck, and if you have a lot of flexible time, you can have a try. But, honestly, you cannot count on this job to support yourself very well. The payment is too low for such a heavy workload.
I personally love my job, just ready to not be full time, everyday

I have always enjoyed working at Canada Post. My only issue has been the relationship between the union and management that trickles down to the workers. Often find that you have your avid union people and then others that just want to do their job.
RSMC (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 17 March 2018
The best of both worlds, you get to work inside and organize your day and then go on the road for your deliveries. It's nice to meet your customers and have a chat, I love my customers, they are wonderful. I get along very well with management, they are a great bunch of people, you can always take your concerns to them. Everyone gets along, you can be as social as you want or if you would rather keep to yourself that is fine too. I think the hardest part is the difference between LC's and RSMC's.
Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 March 2018
Was enjoyable if working. Awful system of calling you the morning of if there's work available which can make scheduling your time tricky.
If you get a weekly assignment it's nice for that week. Just hope you get it for longer than a week because some times you might not work for a few weeks, and sometimes you might have 8 weeks of work. It can be hit or miss.
Supervisors, while in a different union were great to me as a new hire and helped out a ton when I needed it.

Company production expectation can be unrealistic for some jobs! They require production tickets to be printed in some areas and not in others...For the most part the supervisors are good people who are respectful of the employees.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 6 March 2018
is a very good place to work. It is a place to learn how postal department is serving the nation. The hardest part of the job is to work with the team because all people are not same. And most interesting thing is flexibility at work.
Mail Carrier (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 5 March 2018
I loved being able to work out doors and also had the opportunity to work over time. Being casual was a bit tough as I was never on the same route and sometimes it was difficult to figure out the recommended route.
Work place is good and it’s depend on where you working
