    I have been working at Canada Post part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work out, overtime is available for those that like to work. Mostly outdoor and interacting with customers. When it's great, it's great.

    Cons

    Long work days when route knowledge is new. Most walks that are deemed 8 hrs are usually under assessed. Work atmosphere can be stressful as the older seniority is being pushed out, and new hires are not being properly trained. If you don't like rain. Don't apply. Management have a stressful job because of strict monetary targets which gets transferred to the carriers. When it's bad its really bad.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Communicate. Communicate.

    Pros

    Couple of guys are genuine, Paid 1/2 hour lunch Not reults based, so no work ethic, no problem.

    Cons

    Guy in the shop is literally a mail man, bumped a real mechanic through the union. Can't fix a thing unless someone does it for him. Very poor morale in the shop

    Advice to Management

    Offer a carrot to those that deserve it.

    Pros

    Paid is ok. Ok paid for a blue-collar city like Edmonton.

    Cons

    I couldn't deliver letters anymore because I've found out with the doctor I have Ankylosing Spondylitis, health issue with joint. Met with the supervisor and she told me "it doesn't say on the record". I was a casual and never got a call for delivery anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Train some good supervisors instead of being ignorant to people's issue.

    I have been working at Canada Post full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some people are good to work with - some... The pension is good as are the benefits package. The pay is good for what we do

    Cons

    many people have entitlement issues and the union is hostile. The stewards are often the ones who are the worst. The union needs new leadership badly. They are outdated, only looking to fight, and bring their own agendas into issues ignoring the individual.
