One of the most difficult jobs you can do. The workload is overwhelmingly heavy. Be prepared to walk over 100kms a week your feet will have blisters the 2nd day on your job. The people are toxic, and the management doesnt care about anybody aslong as they have the easy job sitting at the desk all day. Taxes and the amount of deductions from your paycheck are very high. Overall not a very good environment very stressful.
Pros
Pay is decent buy your really working for it
Cons
Stressful, physically and emotionally exhausting, feeling overwhelmed everyday, taxes and deductions are high, toxic environment, employees are rude, very undervalued, no respect for essential workers, can never trust anybody in this compnay.

Expectations are too high. Not a job for anyone with a family. Little support for the volume of work. Routes are too long. There needs to be a better way of dividing mail and parcels. No overtime paid. Very little support. If hired as a temp, you will be bounced around everywhere. Full timers off on vacation will leave all their work for temp to pick up.
Cons
Long hours, working in all types of weather, Routes are too long, no overtime.

This company takes advantage of their employees, has a horrible work culture and hires anybody that applies. Management treats you like an animal and the union doesn't really help either. It's all smoke and mirrors with this place.
Pros
None
Cons
No breaks, poor management, lack of advancement

From the depot I worked from, I had fun, learned a lot, gained friends. Most colleges are friendly and approachable. The shift was unusual but manageable because it was regular.

The culture at CPC is akin to “dog eat dog”. Management seems to go out of their way to try and break new hires. They spend a lot of time nit-picking instead of trying to work with you.
Pros
Short days are possible
Cons
Long hours, poor management attitude

My experiences for the Letter carrier (On-call temporary relief) hiring process: Initially applied online to Canada post career website with resume and personal info, waited about 1 month before getting email response from HR with bunch of preliminary questions, such about attended recent job fair, oncall unsteady work hours acceptable or not (eg. 6am to 6pm, mon~fri). Also have to Pay $12 for uncertified provincial driver abstract, and ready to present reference letter from friend/neighbor coworker/boss who is not be a relative and known for more than 2 years The got invited onsite interview about 2 weeks after the initial email. Interview questions: what skills value at customer service position? (eg. communication, professionalism); what to do if water spill? After interview, got fingerprint taken and address security check form on site, then waited 2 more weeks before having to take a physical test on site. Physical test: measusring heart beat & blod pressure, lifting box of about 30kg to 2 levels of higher shelves, extended bend-down 5 minutes, runnning 3 rounds of 14 laps of back-and-forth across the room and some small stairs while carrying heavy backpack ,sorting 3-box of letters test...etc. Then got notified by HR of passing the physical test in the same day, filled out more personal info and tax forms, with offer letter that is conditional of passing the 15 weekdays (7am to 3pm) of on-site driver training and tests, which is scheduled about 2 weeks later. But the training dates suddenly got cancelled then got pushed back with the whole "coronavirus" affairs. After - more...
Pros
Helpful teammates, emphasis on safety first, some supervisors are chill and relaxing to deal with no too much work pressure
Cons
Long wait, lack of job security and benefits for newcomers, heavily senority based, big corporate breacracy inefficency

Quite honestly the best job I have ever had, Canada Post is a Crown Corporation which has been in business since confederation. CUPW is the best union in Canada.

its a postal service job. maximum of customers have low patience level and the chances of parcels getting delayed or lost are quite high. if you know how to manipulate or reason out the customers then you are good at what you are doing. Handling customers is the key.

Trained for 3 weeks then zero shifts available what a waste of training. You wait for a last min call to accept shift if you miss 7 calls your fired. Great business setup to fail from start.
Pros
Good co workers
Cons
No hours

Well paid job. Potential to move up within the corporation. Secure and stable job. Interview is tough and it is a behavioral based interview. Be familiar with SMART method.

A great place to work if you are fit and organized. There is enough training to get you ready for full-time employment. You may not get much work for the first months.

Everyone was friendly and helpful making it a great place to work. However, I only have temporary status so perhaps I'm not attuned to any underlying politics that might exist. It's a great job for anyone that wants to remain physically active and healthy, but the pay is not commensurate with the workload. It's a job to take only if you have other income streams. Delivering letters is simple enough however the job involves delivering lots of flyers, parcels, clearances, and priority pickups all of which complicate the job and interfere with time management. Lots of walking in all weather conditions and the risks posed should not be understated. Injuries are a common occurrence. A job like this should command $30/hour, but it starts at close to $20/hr and increases by $1 per year and is capped at around $26/hr which is not enough to live on in the city. Unsurprisingly, virtually all supervisors have never been letter carriers and may not appreciate the work involved in it or don't have the power to change it if they do. Job security is good if you're fortunate enough to make the transition from temp to permanent status. But this may never come to pass if you're not given hours needed to surpass the 480 hour probationary period. The freedom to be outside and work at your own pace (within reason) is extraordinarily unique, and getting to experience more of the city up close is also interesting.

I cant comment much on working at Canada Post as I am on call temporary employee. The overall environment though is congenial and people are nice. As far as benefits and salary are concerned I may not be able to provide the feedback as I am not permanent or get to have definitive working hours,

Stressful, busy during peak season (Christmas), however a good paced job during summer. Sometimes challenging managing letter carriers who are required to deliver in + or - 40 degree weather

Canada Post is a good company to work for if you want good job security. Even management is unionized. They also have good advancement opportunity. One of the draw back is that new supervisor are working different shifts and hours and are under contracts. Once you become permanent you are most likely going to work night shifts.
