Letter carrier (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 17 septembre 2019
Working with a union gives you piece of mind knowing your always protected and that your job is secure. The best of both worlds; working with people and then going out for deliveries on your own. Having benefits and a pension plan are also great assets.
Considering cost of living & other factors Canada Post hired people at $24.00 per hour say in 2007. On all fairness that needs to be addressed proportionately now. With all costs of living risen manifold overcyhe years the minimum that should becdone is to implement equality in pay will have positive impact on the current "HAVES & HAVE NOTS" sort of culture.
LETTER CARRIER (Ancien employé) – Windsor, ON – 17 septembre 2019
Working sorting mail, standing for long periods of time, as well as walking a route. Meet people whom are not too keen of canada post, so you have to deal with the public, good or bad. Weather is a particular problem...You have to do the job whether you want to or not.
Letter Carrier (Employé actuel) – Niagara Falls, ON – 16 septembre 2019
Starting out at Canada Post is very challenging and requires a second income / a commitment to working 8-12 hour days to start. The salary gap is quite vast since the last arbitration process and new employees who started after 2013 make on average $6.00 less than everyone else who was hired before 2013. The job is stressful and very physical. It gets easier after about 6 months.
Casual Clerk (Employé actuel) – Canada – 16 septembre 2019
Working with some of the long term staff is horrendous! Some of these folks treat you as a second class citizen. The back stabbing and outright rude behavior is 100% uncalled for and unwarranted. I guess they feel they can behave how ever they want, as they will never be reprimanded or fired .
Supervisor (Employé actuel) – Ontario – 16 septembre 2019
Job security, salary, benefits, and pension are all great. Horrible culture. The majority of employees here do their jobs well and care, but all that is ruined by the select few that lie, cheat, and steal with impunity.
Postman (Ancien employé) – Ottawa, ON – 15 septembre 2019
Horrible management and horrible people. The people who work here are complete scum and there practices are predatory. The government should step up and do something instead of feeding off of tax payers money.
Temporary holiday season delivery agent (Ancien employé) – McKnight depot Calgary – 11 septembre 2019
Very negative experience. Getting on fulltime is next to impossible. Getting an inside job is like winning the lottery. All goes by seniority. Management is horrific. Getting growled at is just life. You're given a different route all the time and expected to complete it in the same time as the regular postman who knows his route. Off season no hours.
It's good enough for what it is, which is alright if you just need some money.
Postal Clerk (Ancien employé) – Richmond, BC – 9 septembre 2019
Most people who work here are in it for some sort of financial security, mainly pensions and overtime. The culture is not the best. On the surface, the union reps love to act like everyone is family but the truth is everyone is in it for themselves. You'll feel empty working there and probably will find it hard to leave just because the pay is decent for an entry level job (which is actually less now because of how the contracts are).
A mind numbing job with a company looking to screw you over at every turn.
Letter Carrier/plant worker (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 8 septembre 2019
The work is all about doing the same thing over and over again. It’s not rocket science. The management is the worst group of people with very few good people. They just want to screw people over at ever turn.
Letter Carrier (Employé actuel) – Downtown Vancouver – 6 septembre 2019
Day starts with boost up meeting on how we have to do our job safely and securely. Basically you are doing everything by your own. Very friendly atmosphere. Hardest part is the weather Most enjoyable part of the job is being outside to the environment.
