It's okay company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Interesting thing about this job is that you get behind the scenes experience of postal service. Typical day - come to work and start sorting all incoming mail. By the time you finished there's a constant stream of people looking for their parcels, letters etc. Sometimes you might have a quiet hour or two, but mostly there's always something happening.

Great place , can me hard at times

the hardest part of here in certain areas is the waiting for work as its seniority based and that can make getting a perm position long. Other than that I find working here great and the co workers are friendly and helpful.

Meh

Good pay. But may work like a dog and be treated like one by management. Work just gets harder and harder over time. If you don't do exactly what management wants, whether allowed or not, you will be penalized.

Good place to work

Good place decent people Pay could be more, but that’s the same everywhere. Only regret I have is accepting depot work, as soon as you do that they will try to take advantage.

I love my job, however it lacks hours

I've been with CP for a year and a half. I love my job, the people at my home post office. What I don't like is lack of hours, it's literally impossible to get a permanent position. I'm lucky to get 10 hours a month. So if you're looking for something that is extremely casual, this is the place, but if you're looking for job security, unfortunately this is not the place.

Pros

Free shirt for work

Cons

No hours

Great Job if you enjoy working outdoor and organized

In the beginning it's very challenging as a Letter Carrier / Delivery Agent - Expect some pain and stress in the beginning and long hours.Once you develop your own technique and figure out what works for you to be efficient (different types of tie-out methods, sorting mail, organizing parcels) you can finish earlier than the paid 8 hours. It takes at least a couple months to be a competent Letter Carrier. As a Temp you'll also need to learn a lot of different types of routes and you might not know what you'll be doing day-to-day if no work you could be sent to another station. You will deliver 1-10 sets of neighbourhood mail + Short and Long Mail + up to 40 Pounds Parcels daily. This job isn't for everyone, if you're in relatively good shape, enjoy working independently, loves engaging with customers and highly organized then this job is for you!

Pros

Exercise, Enjoy the outdoor, Great work environment

Cons

Outdoor hazards, Dogs, Winter

Toxic management

Being a letter carrier is extremely demanding physically and it’s a fast paced environment. Inside work is shift work. It will take years to move from a casual position the permanent part time. Extra hours are available.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Physically demanding

Easy enough, must be strong

Wasn't bad, some of the management was a little lacking but overall not bad place to work. Worked nights sorting parcels and packets with some other overflow duties.

Good company for resume

Pay is very low compared to companies outside doing even less tasks as these. Too many senior people who really look down upon new employees and clearly different by uniform. Career development is warned during training that can take 3 to 5 years to become permanent employee.

Pros

Resume profile

Cons

Awkward timing, seniority issues.

Poor management, no appreciation

Canada Post is a very poorly managed company. The fleet VSD in vancouver is no exception. Led by people without a clue of vehicle repair/service.No care for the technicians, pay is well below industry standard. They boast a great benefits package which is easily beat by my wife's benefits from Walmart.

Fun to work if you are a good crew or shift.

There advantages and disadvantages on a unionized company, workers tend to get lazy and complains all the time. They want you to work according to their pace which I hate most of the time.

A bit fast paced can be stressful

Nice coworkers a bit overwhelming. Pay is not that great however the job is not too bad. Need to know how to deal with fast paced environments to succeed

Stay away!

Bullying intimidation, lots of human rights complaints that go no where and micromanagement by supervisors and managers that have never done the job, or care to know it, lots of lying! Horrible!Co workers are great but that’s it!

Unrealistic and totalitarian

I would strongly recommend avoiding a position at Canada Post. The routes are becoming unrealistic (30kms/day) and the people are generally miserable.

Seniority rules, terrible management, poor communication/consultations. Great place after many years of seniority.

You're just a number, tada! You will be used like a dog but over time your seniority will bring all you want after many years. Vacations are based on seniority and there are cut-offs. Took 22 years of seniority to finally take any week of vacation. Must stay for career to enjoy fruits of labor.Pros: Salary/Benefits, Prestige, Camaraderie and Collective Agreement (Worker rights, pay scale)Cons: Management especially Staff movement, lack of communication/consultation, lack of hours for new workers, poor work life balance for those with less seniority. Workplace politics (can be supervisors looking to prove themselves and delegate you and everyone to the latrine pit). Constant changes to depots/plants/systems. Nothing is consistent. Old ways that didn't work will reappear again in the future thus losing money. Don't expect to remain at the same depot, there are relocations even for permanent. Postal codes are moved around. Many lazy people that drag down the team spirit/morale and push everyone else to work slower. Supervisors have their favorites and give free passes to them.

Dont

Apply to anywhere else, toxic environment with hostile management and coworkers. Do t have a schedule and they think they own your time. If they call you at 6am to do a route that starts at 6 am you're already screwed for the day
