Hard to get into and political

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The term positions are garbage and especially in small towns the work places are so political and the people generally suck. If you get over all that and land a long term position you’re all set.

Pros

Fair pay

Cons

Political

Not a good place to work.

I was hired over 10 years ago. The worst thing about the job is not the job. The job is great and doable, it’s the supervisors that destroy the awesomeness of the job. All management make bonuses based on your attendance, your injuries, the flyers you deliver, and many other ridiculous things. You are hounded daily about the least important aspects of your job.

Pros

Exercise, customers, being outside.

Cons

Management.

Decent job

I wasn’t a huge fan of the position. They give you astronomical amounts of mail to deliver and don’t really help you on how to get it done efficiently.

Productive and work individually

As an employee you should be knowledgeable in your workstation process and ability to work individually. The hardest part of the job is how you manage your time to finished your daily route.

Huge difference of work and pay between seniors & newly hired

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

Pros

Benifits

Cons

Difference of work and wage between seniors and juniors

Relief Letter Carrier Job Interview Process

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 - 

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

Terrible Job

Not much good I can say about this job. I guess if your hard working and organized the job is easy. Workers hired 20 years ago were hired at relatively the same wage that youre hired on today. Also those workers have received a 9$ wage increase (50%) over those 20 years (100% inflation peroid). That means if you were hired 20 years ago youre making 75% of what you were when you started 20 years ago.

Pros

Easy

Cons

Bad pay, terrible managenent, pension sucks

Toxic Work Environment

First year to 2nd year are hellish. Expect to be on a new route every day, and to go weeks or even months without getting called in for a single shift. If you’re not available to come in when they do randomly call you, you will be put at the bottom of the call list & have to work your way up again, which can take forever. Every couple years the company “restructures” routes; they say in order to keep up to date with changing parcel & mail numbers. In actuality, the restructures are nothing more than making routes longer in order to cut the amount of routes, & consequently # of full time employees, despite parcel numbers & admail skyrocketing. I’ve worked there for 7 years and my body is slowly deteriorating, despite only being in my 30’s. My route averaged 18 kms a day, which is smaller than a lot of routes. Some of my coworker’s routes average 25-30. I know of many long-time carriers who have had to get knee & foot surgeries. Besides the physical toll, there is a significant mental toll as well due to the toxic atmosphere created mostly by management. As much as they talk about how important safety is, it’s all lip service. Perfect example is management not implementing safety measures during COVID-19; they only did so after weeks of pressure from the union & individual workers on the floor. If you happen to get injured, which you almost certainly will (Canada Post has the highest injury rate of all federal sectors), they will do everything in their power to make the claim process a difficult one for you. You will be treated as inept & lazy, with little to no compassion - 

Pros

Working alone majority of day, most co-workers & customers are great

Cons

Management style, pay, job security 1st years of employment

Poor experience

My supervisor did not act with my best interests in mind. I requested a medical leave which was not submitted. And union rules are not explained well, so my grievance was not filed in time.

Pros

Colleagues

Cons

Station manager

Peu recommmandable

La culture de l'entreprise est méprisante, la gestion est déficiente, la conciliation famille travail n'existe pas. Le harcèlement psychologique et l'intimidation est omniprésente. Trop de copinage avec les membres de la famille. Les opportunités de carrières ne sont pas là. Les conditions de travail sont réduites années après années.

Cons

Entreprise meprisante et aliénante

Very interest and enyoyable

Great place to work. Good work ethics. proper safety and no stressful. If given opportunity will work with this great company again. Worked as mail sorter on call basis, would like to work in clerical position on a permanent basis. I like the punctuality and friendly atmosphere/ The people I work were very helpful and co-operative. The managers were good at their work and able to guide the staff well and able to get the work done.

Pros

Good Pay/ Better and fair treatment of fellow staff

Cons

Washroom unclean or maintained well/ Pantry very clustered

Canadian Crown Corp that is Profitable

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
