    Pros

    Stable environment, good benefits, easy work

    Cons

    Unionized enviornment ---no flexibility Only rules and regulations for front line staff, inputs are requested but generally ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to staff inputs, especially from those at front line positions ---they are often the ones who are most sensitive to the needs and issues of the clients.

    Pros

    I control my work hours. When and how long I work and no one checks up on me. I am the boss. Just keep telling people corporate propaganda and they all believe I'm doing my job

    Cons

    With the changes, everyone is in self-preservation mode. This corporation will not survive much longer. It's every man for himself. Retail outlets that keep calling and think I'm going to come and solve their issues. They can work things out on their own

    Advice to Management

    Too late for advice. Too many mistakes. No one willing to take responsibility.

    Pros

    Some friendly people and decent pay the best trainers are the one who are empathetic nice people! Not military harsh people who are bully!

    Cons

    Getting bullied, no support, one mistake and your out the door! Don't work here during winter! Especially if your new! Expect to experience lots of pain from long walks while carrying heavy mail!

    Advice to Management

    Please don't bully your new employee no matter what mistake they've done. No one deserve to be yelled at or be a shamed for their mistake! Be supportive and sympathetic. I will always remember the harsh treatment from One trainer, and I will never make anyone feel as the way he had made me feel!

    Pros

    I am a delivery agent in Dartmouth NS and in my area I get to drive around in a company owned vehicle and no one supervises me. I card all of my parcels before I leave the depot so I have an easy day. No one ever knows that I do it. The RPO just gets stuck with all of them. I can text all day long too.

    Cons

    Some of my co-workers in the depot.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on the cards and who is at their letter carrier case carding before they leave the depot

    Pros

    I guess the cheque does not bounce. Mind you, it will not be for all the hours that you work since they feel that you should start early and if you work overtime, you should not claim it.

    Cons

    Upper management act friendly (think used car salesmen like) but are nasty and have a flock of scared supervisors doing nasty things to scare workers. A real poisonous workplace that I would not wish on anyone. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Stop following orders and treat people like they are humans.

    Pros

    Large company with good variety of opportunities during Transformation from lettermail focused operations to parcel delivery operations. Operations people care about the work that they do.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability at Head Office and from management. Struggling to fit the Innovapost shared IT services model to mail operations systems. Not very talent aware. Company values are okay but management does nothing to live them.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to change the "old school" culture that exists from an era where it was easy to make a profit due to lettermail volumes.
