Used to be a really nice job, but it's pretty nasty now and will only get worse.

Pros

Decent pay, decent benefits, pension (unless you're a new hire, then none of the above) start at 3 weeks holidays.

Cons

Oh where to begin! From the CEO of this company to the supervisors in the depots.....really nasty and mean people that treat workers like crap. Despite the fact that our hard work earns this company record profits every year ($281 million last year) they still slash our wages, benefits and pensions. They micromanage every concievable detail even though though they have never done the job before themselves. We cannot take time off, even using banked overtime and asking a year in advance!! Supervisors literally spy on the employees to see if they're delivering their flyers or are wearing their seatbelts........such wasted money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Back off and let us do our jobs. I used to like my job! I'm the one on the front line that knows all my customers names and they like me because I do a good job! Trying telling us now and then that we did something right. Quit harassing us when we're sick. Quit following us on our routes to see if we delivered flyers! AAAGGGGHHH!
