Not stressful, easy job, good pay. It likes a paid work-out to me. You have to pay the union fee ($90/month) even you work only one day.The co-works and the supervisors are friendly.
Good pay, low pressure at work.
Not consistent schedule for the part time worker.
I loved working in Hamilton, they were understanding and flexible. Cambridge - Galt was worse, with one new manager not understanding her employee's needs and how to retain talent. You get trucks in Hamilton, which makes winter easier, but Cambridge is walking only, so pretty terrible in - 20 degree weather.
By yourself a lot, lots of outdoors and exercise
Cold weather, walking routes are very hard, management
You work more, paid less and less uniform than those working before. Most Supervisors specially at Hamilton are the worst & put pressure on new hires
Difference of work and wage between seniors and juniors
AT CP as a middle manager you are set up to fail daily. The goals set out for the corporation are not reasonable and if you manage to achieve all the goals set for you each week they feel you can do more. As a middle manager in your own union you are getting bombarded from above and below and are stuck between when it comes to working with the letter carrier union and your own. It is a difficult situation to say the least and highly stressful.

Over all good company to work for. Paid vacation, good benefits and very good pension. U get 3 weeks paid vacation when u start working here.
Do your job, work with others and try to get a long. I was a Letter Carrier for 30 years. Great job at the time. I worked as a Postal Clerk for 6 years. Good job.
If you dont have bills to pay or if you have a second income spouse then this job is great. It isnt that great for someone looking to pay bills because it's not consistent work. The pay is good but it can be a lot of work at times and hardly seems worth it...especially in extreme weather conditions.The people are great to work with though, very friendly environment and everyone is helpful to the newbies.
Unless you are working out of the Toronto, Oakville, Burlington or *GASP* Downtown Hamilton Depots you will not get shifts unless it's Christmas time. Supervisors in the Downtown Hamilton depot are unapproachable, bitter and completely unconcerned with employees welfare unless there is a union steward present and they have to pretend. You will work 12 hour days in the dark, in the cold and in rain coming at you sideways. If you can't find a point of call and have to return mail prepared to get lambasted in front of others. I've seen people drop their mail bags and just walk out.
You are not stuck in an office
Long hours in adverse weather conditions
If you like money but only care about quantity not quality this place is for you. No incentive to apply good work ethics just put in your time to advance. The union protects the wrong people and with the dues you pay for the service you get is very frustrating. Good luck.
Union (you can basically do nothing and still have a job)
Very little motivation to do your best. Very sad.
The hardest part about being an on-call employee is you never know when you could be called in. If I was called in everyday, this job would be amazing however I don't and therefore need to look for a job that is full time and more reliable.
All new employees are hired as on call casual. You may get a call or two a week if you are lucky. If you do get a call and you go into a depot dont expect and help from management or other employees. You are scheduled for 8 hours and then routes they give you are impossible to do in 8 hours so expect to work long hours. When filling out the paperwork for the extra hours make sure you have all the evidence possible or they will deny OT pay. Yes it's a union job so expect to over pay dues. Even if you work one shift they still expect you to pay your full dues which is almost $90 which is way to high for the lack of support you receive. So if you wanna say you have a job but never work apply here. If you actually wanna work then keep looking.
