Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
My time at Canada Post was very enriching, I have learn a lot in all aspect of the business from operations to training with the transformation. I left for a job offer in management in paper industry. Looking back at my move, with the news in fast decline, I never would have left.

Pros

Team work

Cons

Fast past every day.

Politics and advancement over honesty.

Very political, your own boss has his buddies working under him even though it's not allowed.. extremely based on who you know.It all depends on who, and where you know. Better hope you have friends, otherwise, everyone is an enemy.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Poor management

Good place to work

Good group of people. Its hard to advance on your work ethic and merits alone because it's union and goes by seniority. Once your can secure a regular position and get off the casual list, it's a good solid job.

mismanagement

Mis management is no 1 set back at canadapost due to putting the wrong people in high positions, There's absolutely no need to ha ve superintendents, you should eliminate superintendent position to empower supervisors.

Terrible & degrading to women in management

Unfortunately for such a large organization the ‘Old Boys Club’ in Management & above still exists. Appalling & discrimination towards women specifically as Supervisors, I had never been so disgusted in my life.

Ok job

Schedule is done weekly very hard to plan life especially if you have children. Very strong union in the plant more relaxed in the delivery side of the business. Overall pretty good place to work.

Poor management

Poor management, precarious employment. Temp assignments only for 3 years before a permanent position is available. Poor middle management, especially the superintendents.

can be a lot of fun with a properly developed team all working together to achieve the same goal

start the day with all engines on go, always problems to solve, many people to take care of with unique issues...customer service always a priority, very fast paced, although sometimes seems upper management is immune to the day to day floor operations and logistics of getting mail routed correctly and on the street in a safe and expedient manner...overall i stayed for 28.5 years so did present challenging opportunities

Excellent place to work.

I am been working at different position at Canada post from last 3 years. Canada post is the best place to work with from all aspects. Great culture and working environment. Great opportunity to work for Canada post. The best think i like at Canada post is Canada post will prefer their own employee for next level position and second option will be from outside. I love Canada post. I will be retiring from Canada post. I want my kids also work for Canada post.

Pros

Great place to work and excellent pay

Cons

Nothing

If you enjoy crazy then work here

A typical day of work will be having to deal with managers who play politics 24 hours a day, a number of incredibly lazy and unmotivated supervisors (not all), and some very very angry, lazy, mental staff members to run the machines etc. There are good people here, amidst the incompetence and depression. Good wages, terrible work environment, aggressive unprofessional and unrelenting unions, aggressive unprofessional and unrelenting managers. - a total gong show!

Pros

paycheque

Cons

everything else

Horrible Culture and Management

Pros: work life balance, actual front line employees are some amazing people, if you have minimum education and or options this may be the career for you. Cons: politics, nepotism, horrible cuture, directors and managment. You are just a number to them. Backstabbing by overachievers or uneducated colleagues. If you can put up with the BS this company is for you

Canada post offers an inclusive work environment with room for advancement

My role with Canada Post was both challenging and rewarding. I learned some great coaching techniques while leading a diverse team, and there is room for advancement should one want.

N/a

Job security, salary, benefits, and pension are all great. Horrible culture. The majority of employees here do their jobs well and care, but all that is ruined by the select few that lie, cheat, and steal with impunity.

Not for the experienced.

Not the Canada Post many thought was a great job to get - that image ended many, many, years ago. Very toxic culture. 20/80 rule with staff (20% work and 80% put in bare minimum) and strong union presence. Back stabbing, deceitful, and petty co-workers/leadership. Average pay, coupled with prehistoric work tools and environment. HR seems to hire anyone with a pulse, no sense of truly diversified backgrounds - it's really fine to hire blanc candidates now. Best suited for new supervisors, or for those getting paid less in private sector. You choose to accept employment here, just make sure to not trust anyone. Just as your parents told you not to talk to strangers.

Pros

There is other jobs.

Cons

Soulless career in a dying industry.

toxic people, toxic environment

Most toxic environment, period. Worst company ever. Culture is stab everyone in the back. Superintendents no hesitate to step on top of you in order to get a promotion. Management don't know what they are doing and treat people with disrespect and disdain. Don't believe the advertisement, they'll manage to pay you less and give you no benefits. They think they're doing you a favour. You can't trust anyone and they work you down to the bone. On top of that union do not help at all. Worst experience of my life. Stay clear. But if you dare, you need to document almost everything and cover your back all the time.

Great set of benefits

Typical day at work is professional. Health and safety along with diversity is promoted. The dress code is simple; decent closing, no loose clothing, tied hair and no jewelry.

Pros

Pension plan and very competitive wages.

Cons

Union environment protects unproductive workers

Supervisors are being worked to death

The company continually piles work on to front line supervisors to the point that stress leave is the leading cause of disability leave. There is little to no work life balance and the conflict is constant and acrimonious. The wages are decent and the benefits are OK, though the pension is lousy for new hire supervisors
