Canadian Crown Corp that is Profitable

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Although not well known, the crown corporation “Canada Post” has been profitable for mNy years and only shows any negative activity when the Government pulls in the retirement surplus (or not) into the mix. This is a Unionized shop environment and requires those who work here to pay a portion of their wage to the union itself (where this may raise the ire of some it does more good than bad in the long run) In any event the work is steady and requires mental knowledge of the mailing system and training is supplying oversll it’s a good place to work

Pros

Reasonable wages and time off

Cons

Work/life balance can take a hit

Night shift

Advice to Management Retrain your supervisors twice a year. Have them earn their ranks from the bottom to the top, not based on their degrees only.

Other than the salary, I have nothing positive to say about either the job, supervisorsor or management

They, supervisors and managers, claim to care and push their PAID disability management and PAID doctors but its entirely and complete BS. There is very little respect given to workers by supervisors and managers, and they foster and feed a toxic work environment. There is even less respect or care for those who are sick. It's profit before workers unless CPC pays professionals for the response that the corporation wants or requires in order to justify their "caring" conduct.

Equality in pay needs to be implemented

Considering cost of living & other factors Canada Post hired people at $24.00 per hour say in 2007. On all fairness that needs to be addressed proportionately now. With all costs of living risen manifold overcyhe years the minimum that should becdone is to implement equality in pay will have positive impact on the current "HAVES & HAVE NOTS" sort of culture.

Poorly managed

Wage hasn’t moved in years, union does nothing for the workers. Poorly managed, and not consistent with discipline or lack thereof. Can never seem to agree to anything with the union and always welcoming back to workmlegislatiom

Heavy work!

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.

High School

Is a typical multi-level business. worked your own hours. I learned from here was that most of the upper people don't know as much as some of the people coming in and that they were in the right spot at the right time.Management was really not there unless you were producing. The co-workers wasn't there you were on your own. The hardest part of the job was ignoring the harassing of not recruiting. The best part was out producing the ones who had teams but weren't selling because they focused on recuiting.

A great place to work.

This job entailed customer service, sales, general office duties, shipping and receiving, daily, weekly, monthly audits for till. In this job my co-workers were a team willing to work together to provide the best service. The management was great for the most part, and totally supportive. There were not difficult parts of this job, and I did learn to be a super sales person.

Pros

An easy going supportive staff and fun place to work.

Cons

Actually I cannot think of any cons to this job.
