Ideal for single people with no children
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 February 2018
Best to leave your personal life out of this work environment. Management is focused on work. Your personal issues may temporarily be a concern and then you have pressure to return things to normal if your situation becomes a long term issue. Work life is often routine and fast paced. Added stress occurs during peak season.

Fair medical and dental benefits
Pros
Pays you money for having great grades in school
Cons
Coworkers may create an unnecessary stressful work environment and high turn over

Delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 December 2017
As a driver it's a well paid stressful job. You leave the building with a truck literally packed to the gills with parcels and some how have to make it back to the building in time to drop off your express packages in order for them to reach the airport in time. All the while having no where to go to the toilet. Say goodbye to your social life!
Pros
Well paid with benifits
Cons
Stressful and long hours

Tough Job
Package Handler (Current Employee) –  2900 Steeles Ave W6 December 2017
Not worth travelling to. They only give you part-time technically, but you can work double shifts of approx. 5hrs each. Because of the double shift, you are not entitled to OT.

Pay starts at minimum and you hit max pay after 4.5 years. Good thing is that the hours are flexible and if you put in work, you can do multiple shifts; they need all the help they can get.

Very high turnover rate, unhappy workers, management could be better.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
poor work conditions, job culture, morale

Delivery Driver Helper (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON6 November 2017
Temporary job but still pay union dues.

As much as I believe in unions, this is a temporary position which offers no protection or possible service.

You use your own car and gas without compensation for deliveries.

Also, if you get into a car accident while rushing around town making deliveries, your insurance will not cover you since you are using it for work.
Pros
Pays minimum wage
Cons
Temp, you pay fees and use own car

Walker/Helper (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON17 October 2017
I was a hired as a seasonal walker for the christmas season. Loved being outside and busy. But the union dues for a seasonal worker are ridiculous. First you should not even come close to paying the dues of a part time worker or if any. You pay exactly what a part time worker would pay even though your hours will vary week to week (4-28hrs). When they take off union dues sometimes you are left with nothing!! Remember your paid minimum wage!! Also the criminal record check is a joke. They make you pay for it but don't give you any proof that it was ever done.
Pros
Drivers are great. Appreciate how hard they work.
Cons
Not worth the money. Union takes the highest percentage.

Work here at your own peril
Front-Line Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON12 October 2017
This isn't a very desirable job. Especially at management level. starting wages are terrible and the work culture is negative. Saying that, this is one of the few part time jobs that provide a decent benefits package after 90 working days. once you reach top rate you can make ok money. They take on more than they can handle as a company.
Pros
benefits for part time employees
Cons
pay rate and company culture
