Rural Contractor/Sub-Contractor

Worked as a rural contractor/sub-contractor, sorting & delivering mail & parcels to cmb modules (postal boxes) and parcel delivery to the door. The pay is decent, however they do NOT take any deductions off your pay, so unless you have many deductions, you will end up having to pay the government HUGE income tax. Because I functioned as a fill-in (sub-contractor) for the contractor of the route, I was not entitled to any of the union benefits or perks, nor did I acquire any seniority, which made it difficult to apply for any other job postings from within, or have any chance of retaining my job when the contractor of the route retires. The job itself is okay, but it’s ridiculous that a crown corporation treats its personnel so unfairly, and although I was doing the exact job as the contractor, I was paid differently and without the same perks/benefits. This is a busy job position with many hoops to jump through, too many politics and shoddy treatment from the general public (due to misinformation on the part of Canada post and retailers). To anyone who thinks this job would be easy, I say RUN....IT ISN’T WORTH IT.

Pros

Working outside

Cons

Working outside, unfair treatment from company as well as general public

started as casual with the hope of being able to secure a regular position, company started eliminating jobs through attrition in favour of casuals

short shifts but busy, lots of things get accomplished in a couple hours, loved the fast pace and productivity, management with good, frustrated working with unionized co-workers that slacked off and let the casuals pick up the slack, other that loved the job and hoped that a more permanent position would avail itself but the company is opting to let those positions go to the wayside to attrition and maintain as many casuals as possible, eventually moved from the rural area to seek employment and could no longer maintain my casual position here

Pros

enjoyed the work

Cons

lack of shifts
