Current Employee - Letter Carrier in Winnipeg, MB (Canada)

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

Pros

Current benefits are good as well as job security

Cons

Wages on the decline. Work environment is combative and punitary. A lot of veiled threats. Work loads are excessive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire from within. Too many supervisors/superintendents have no postal experience. Employees getting very tried of doing all managements thinking for them. Stop creating more obstacles for employees to have to deal with.

    Thanks to the hard fought battles of our union our pay/benefits are decent, it's the co. that is militant.

    Current Employee - Letter Carrier in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at Canada Post full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You don't have to work inside for too long. Exercise while working is great. I don't get too dirty at work.

    Cons

    The co. is very hard on it's workers when they make errors. 5 day suspensions and a poor work environment that doesn't stress positive re-enforcement are the norm, unfortunately. There is zero trust of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive re-enforcement and proper training for workers. Easy on the heavy handed disciplining and frivolously numerous 5 suspensions that cost us all including the co. and cupw a lot of time effort and money. It makes for a poor work environment and grudge toting workers.

    Current Employee - Letter Carrier in Winnipeg, MB (Canada)

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

    Pros

    -Not always working 8 hours in a day
    -Decent Compensation (depending on your weather conditions)
    -Decent Pension/Holidays (They are trying to change this)

    Cons

    -Big corporation, your another face in the crowd, supervisors barely know you by name.
    -Working in adverse weather conditions (-40, +40)
    -Heavy mail days are very hard on the legs and hips.
    -Takes 2+ years to become a permanent employee, therefore it takes 2+ years to get any kind of benefits or start working on your pension.
    -Always new changes coming in, always having to adapt to something new (these changes are usually mindless and useless).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for employee's to get bonuses depending on their delivery of flyers etc. An employee with a longer route and more flyers/parcels deserves a bigger bonus than the guy with half the route. Make the foot walks a little shorter, they are becoming inhumanly possible.
