Have never before acquired more injuries while at work...

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

I worked at Canada Post for less than a year

ProsPay is not terrible
Temp (relief) carriers are called when needed and work days are flexible
Apparently benefits are good once you are a permanent employee

ConsVague and insufficient training
Absurd expectations re: walk lengths and times
Injuries (especially in the winter) are very common
Environment amongst co-workers (union related) is TENSE

Advice to Senior ManagementTraining needs to be less hurried and more thorough

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad Management, Used to pay Good Wages for Laborious work....

Postal Clerk (Current Employee)
Winnipeg, MB (Canada)

I have been working at Canada Post full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe Money, Pure and simple. At least if you got hired before Feb 2013. After 2013, I don't know why anyone would stay.

ConsBad Labor relations. Canada Post's real motto seems to be,"Whatever it takes to crush the Union, Then we'll deliver the Mail" All weekend and nights/evenings work in plants if you have less than 25 years seniority. Favoritism, Nepotism, and Supervisors/ Management believing they are entitled to more.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire the YES Men that seem to be running this place. Modern Post has failed. A bad case of the Emperors new clothes. Listen to your front line workers, for God's sake.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not worth the headaches

Letter Carrier (Relief) (Current Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I have been working at Canada Post part-time for less than a year

Pros$19 an hour, but that's hardly a perk once you actually realize what it entails.
any real perks come when you get full time work, but that can take up to 10 years.

ConsPoorly trained for the job at hand.
No Guarantee of work(as a term)
A lot of stress from management and they will try to not pay overtime if at all possible.
Management expects you to do the job at the same speed as people who have been on the job for 10 plus years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
