stressful but rewarding

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working as a casual it's a very stressful job coming in to sort and deliver routes you don't know. Most of the time no one is there to help you and you end up working 9 to 10 hour days without even finishing the route. ALTHOUGH, you get paid great money to walk and get exercise while also listening to music and getting to spend time outside. Overall It's a great job with awesome people and you get good exercise!

Disorganized and petty

Management is horrible to work for. They do not even care enough to provide fans in the summer. All management care about is their bonuses! Sadly disappointed ☹️ Union only cares about full time letter carriers. No care for part time or casual employees or inside depot workers. Union is horrible and self serving. I would opt out if I could.

Pros

Pay is good

Cons

Management. No training

Summary

The training session was a short but thorough and easy to understand. We did some hands-on training also. The job itself was straightforward and time flew by. The materials we needed where always provided. I would be happy to do this temporary job again!

Busy, enjoyable workplace.

Training was provided for a variety of jobs I was given. Staff was good to work with and I loved the fast pace. The hours are somewhat flexible within your shift and the breaks are sufficient. Safety is stressed. Management advises the highlights expected during the shift and makes themselves available to any difficulties.

it is what you make it

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.

Pros

being on the road

Cons

amount and size of parcels

work ethic

I found my 5 years at Canada Post was very stressful when one week you work 60 hours and then you could be off for 2 to 3 weeks with no work. Always waiting for a call, and no benefits at all.

Pros

money and able to be outside working on your own.

Cons

work availabe, very limited hours and no benefits.

Great place to work

I enjoyed being busy and the other employees were great to work with, just wish the job was permanent instead of contract.

The people make it a joy to come to work

Opportunity to work in a variety of job positions. A happy atmosphere - always music playing. A high intensity, fast paced environment but never a feeling of overbearing pressure.

Pros

Good wage and benefits

Cons

Little chance for advancement
