    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Canada Post (North Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    There's the route, do it. No real interview, just see supervisor at station, and your hired and documented later. They couldn't staff any routes at that point in time. What more do you want it was we'll take anybody at that point, as long as you were breathing..

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Canada Post.

    Interview

    1st step was the written test, which had 5sections and you have 5 mins to do 40 questions per section, was hard only because i felt under pressure since it was timed. 2nd step was the interview one on one with 2 supervisors, was way easier than the test. They describe the job position and if you liked it they continued with the interview. Its was 3 questions. Pretty easy one on one interview.

    Letter Carrier (Relief) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gatineau, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Canada Post (Gatineau, QC (Canada)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Beyond the initial general capacities test (basic math, arranging numbers in order, identifying and understanding rules and policies), the actual interview is in-person with the supervisor of a mail depot. It is not long, perhaps 20 minutes. They will have your CV already and the results from your test, and so it is largely a formality to see if you understand the position, the nature of the schedule (part-time, temporary, on-call for the first 6 months) and can work well in a team and independently.

    RSMC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Canada Post (Edmonton, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    I uploaded my resume and personal details on the Canada Post web site for jobs. I got a call a few months later for an on call relief mail carrier but declined because I wanted a permenant position. I then specified in my resume and cover letter that I was interested in becoming a RSMC and applied for a fulltime posting. I was called within a week for an interview. I was interviewed by one lady. She asked me a series of questions regarding how I would handle certain situations. I watched a short film about what goes on in the rsmc mail department and I was given a timed test which is easy math but unnerving when you are being timed and watched.
