    Pros

    Good office space so it doesn't feel crammed and you have good space to work in. Others are generally very nice.

    Cons

    Projects run for too long because they run too slow. If you are looking to work in a fast pace environment, this is maybe not your best bet.

    Advice to Management

    To have strict deadlines and deliverables for projects. This will cause all workers to adhere to a fast working pace which will minimize project delays.

    Pros

    - Great pay - Friendly People - You won't work over what you're expected to - Unionized environment - i.e. pay is standard, standard work hours

    Cons

    - Management always has to follow procedure, so that may limit the scope of your work possibly - Not exactly a meritocracy - could be a pro or con depending on the individual

    Advice to Management

    Intern program was pretty great, perhaps introducing a rotational program would have been nice? I would have liked to experience other departments' work style.

    I have been working at Canada Post part-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits and a relatively stress free and simple job; which means it's not very mentally stimulating as well.

    Cons

    It can take upwards of 4 years to get a permanent position after being hired as a casual employee. Every day is the same. Can get very boring.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee's suggestions who are working on the floor when making efficiency changes because they will often know what works well from firsthand experience.
