    I have been working at Canada Post full-time

    Pros

    Great exercise
    Coworkers are great
    Fun in the depots

    Cons

    Too many supervisors who have NO idea how to talk to people let alone manage them!
    Gets super cold in the winter
    Expect everything done, regardless of circumstances that may arise.
    Do NOT ever get injured on the job

    Advice to Management

    Remember you are human, just like us, the employees! Drop the attitude and for one day, do our job. Then maybe you won't be so miserable

    I have been working at Canada Post (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay rate is almost okay and benefits are almost acceptable.

    Cons

    Long hours delivering in the dark, freezing; often in sketchy neighbourhoods. Delivery agent work is crippling, and when you get hurt you will not be covered.
    Management lack integrity. and many employees are treated poorly/unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity. Respect. Dignity. Try learning to treat people like human beings. Giving people job duties you know are crippling then falsifying paperwork is unacceptable.
