    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Canada Post in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    (1) GAT - general aptitude test, you have to pass this test. Its not easy and not hard(memory, math with out using calculator). But, lots of people won't pass this test. ration of pass is 10:4. (2) If you pass GAT, then interview won't be so difficult. (3) Road test - make sure you practice on big van or truck, especially backing park. (4) health test - BP, heart rate, work focus.
     Then there will be 3 weeks training where you have to sort 120 letters in 10 min. practice, practice, practice !!
      After that they will assign a Depo where you have to give a route, you need to deliver all mail with in your time limit. This part would be hardest one even you got all training. If you make it, you will continue in Canada Post otherwise no!!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – 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 Questions
    • 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
