Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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!!

    Hiring is done by resume and waiting for a call. If you are unlucky enough to be called, you will then spend several weeks being evaluated. I don't understand why there is a 50 word minimum. There is nothing else to put into this box already! Once upon a time there was a little girl named Goldilocks.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Canada Post in November 2010.

    You take a series of basic competency tests, pending that you are invited to an interview. The interview is quite basic, there is a role playing question of how you would react to a 50 year or so old man waiting for his pension cheque that has not come. Other than that, quite basic and easy.... tell them you are active and like sports!
