Good job, really hard for newbies
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 January 2018
It's a really great job if you've been here for years. To be successful as a new employee, you need to have nothing else going on in your life, because the work is long, hard, and consumes you. As a term employee your schedule changes day to day and you never know when you will be home so it is impossible to plan anything or have any kind of life outside of work. If you have the patience to stick through the misery and burn out for a couple years, it gets better and you get settled in with a nice, secure, easy job. Management will never tell you anything or help you with anything or answer any question directly, but the workers are a nice bunch and very helpful, lending to a good work environment. Considering you need no formal training, the pay is great.
Good pay, nice coworkers, engaging tasks
long hours, impersonal management, no set schedule.
