    I worked at Canada Post part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of days off, if you consider that a good thing
    - Work independently

    Cons

    - Incredibly long, inconsistent hours
    - Poor pay
    - Confusing pay system

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with each other. Try to address the discontentment that your employees are harboring. We'd respect you more if you respected us, but treating us like we're less than human isn't a good way to retain people.
