Flexible working time for me (3-11pm)

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not stressful, easy job, good pay. It likes a paid work-out to me. You have to pay the union fee ($90/month) even you work only one day.The co-works and the supervisors are friendly.

Pros

Good pay, low pressure at work.

Cons

Not consistent schedule for the part time worker.

Fun place to work as long as you are partnered up

I enjoyed being an ergonomic assistant with Canada post. If you find the right partner to work with it can be enjoyable. Be prepared for any weather. No job is completely secure Things change quick in this industry

Pros

Being a passenger And not using my own vehicle

Cons

Long hours and sorting

Diplorable and toxic work environments

Zero respect from management to staff and not only dismiss's mental health but is the main participant in triggering anxiety, depression and PTSD. After sixteen years I don't think i can do it anymore. . The work environment is horrible...!

Pros

Excercise

Cons

Everything besides the excercise and a handful of co-workers its soul robbing.

Terrible place to work, no rights for temp employees.

Don’t waist your time. When I was having difficulty with a senior co worker harassing me and no one took this harassment seriously. It caused me major anxiety and stress which wasn’t worth the temp job I held for 2 years.

Pros

Part time

Cons

Too long of periods between working, sometimes over 8 months!

No respect for their employees

Just started my training with Canada Post in June as a delivery agent. You are told that you will be on call for delivery agents routes. However, they dont have routes for you and you are told to work night shifts as a clerk (processing parcels). When they call you on the phone, they have no respect for you if you refuse to go in an other warehouse (wich you are allowed to do) and they hang up the phone. However, the pay is the only positive point if you need money now in the meantime.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Night work shift, no respect, rude colleagues

High School all over again

If you miss high school and are longing for a sense of nostalgia, Canada Post is the place to be. Gossip, gossip, and more gossip. Workplace culture is abysmal at best; sexism (extremely misogynistic), racism, and surprise surprise there is always the issue of language. As a new employee, if you're very productive, you're told to slow down and work at a slower pace by colleagues because you won't have enough work to do and they might send you home. If you work slowly a supervisor can and most likely will get irritated with you and think you're lazy. Sure the benefits are great, but you have to suffer through 480 long brutal hours to become permanent, and if you succeed, you'll probably be rewarded by being tossed over to the night shift.

Pros

flexible hours, benefits if you are a permanent employee

Cons

everything and anything you can think of

There are times of fast past operations mainly in the morning... With the right attitude and the ability to solves customer issue and EE requirements, you will never see the time going by. Every day is different in it's own way.

Pros

OT well paid

Cons

Many EE and Union interviews required.

If one can work at Canada Post, one can and should, work Anywhere !

Company exists in-spite of itself. Uneducated with Ignorance is a promotable, Quality. Thus ensuring one is not a threat to chain of indifference. The preverible carrot will always be dangling in your sight, it is more like the poisoned apple.

Pros

Government job, opens trap door to lesser careers

Cons

Organization

Mechanical job

The pay is good as far as a new immigrant like me is concerned. The supervisors are not good and some are worse , they think we are all fools and try to act smart . The job is a mechanical job , there is not much to learn and the regular staff are all lazy and they run the show with on call staffs .There is no after work pressure and the salary is 21’17

Pros

Pay

Cons

Management . Work culture

Careful what you wish for!!

I’ve worked for Canada Post for over 15 years, all in the same building in Kelowna and it’s scary to see the supervisors and management run this place into the ground. This place has never run so poorly, largely in part to the supervisors, superintendent and manager not having a clue what they’re doing. The pay is nowhere near where it should be, and if I wasn’t so close to retirement I would be looking for another job ASAP!!

Pros

Exercise

Cons

Everything else
