Letter Carrier (Relief) Interview

Letter Carrier (Relief)
Medicine Hat, AB (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Canada Post in November 2013.

Interview Details – A skills test is scheduled first; this consists of a few sections including reading comprehension, memory, basic mathematics, and address matching. It's very functional in that the skills tested are the skills used while on the job.
If you pass the skills test, then a physical test is scheduled; this is also very functional in that it tests the same physical skills required for the actual job. If you are in somewhat decent shape, it shouldn't be difficult.
If you pass the physical test, then a personal interview is scheduled with management at the local depot. It was very standard, with a brief explanation of the job requirements and a few very simple questions for the applicant.

Interview Question – On the original online application, a question of how you would deal with a customer who is upset that the mail is late (due to an overload of mail that day and extended sorting time).   View Answer

Negotiation Details – "We would like to offer you the position."

Postal Clerk Interview

Postal Clerk

I applied in-person and interviewed at Canada Post.

Interview Details – At the time that I was hired my mother knew someone who worked at the post office. This person kept an track of when they were taking applications and called us whenever they knew this was happening. My sister and I went down and applied at the same time as about one hundred other people. Although neither of us had any other work or volunteer experience we both got called for interviews. We were both hired as casual employees. I would say that all employees start as term casuals and that is how they weed out the employees they don't want.

Interview Question – I was interviewed by two people at the same time. There were no difficult questions that I recall. Had to lift a heavy weight properly. They really screen their hires by hiring them as short term casuals before hiring them full-time.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – there is no negotiation for postal clerk other than through the union
