      Work independently, fast paced environment, decent wages for the job expected. Great exercise on the walking routes!


      Work hours were too flexible and no guaranteed weekly hours were ever given as it is a fill-in only position; therefore, if the regulars do not call in sick or are on vacation, the work hours are very sporadic.

        -Good Hourly Rate -Lots of extra hours available if you're a good worker and network with other offices -Evaluation system rewards working efficiently and you can get paid 9 hours, for example if you finish the route in 6-7 hours of work.


        -Draconian management hinders rather than helps productivity and kills morale. Many managers have little to no experience as carriers. In other words, they do not know how to do the job in which they are overseeing. -No benefits for part-timers and your years of service will not count toward retirement until you become regular. -Not a good fit for people with families, as you are expected to drop everything to provide coverage if they need you, but you could find yourself starving waiting for the phone to ring. -Regular carriers often take off for days after holidays, which offer heavy volume. So you don't get paid for the holiday and then you work twice as hard the day after as you go over the route's evaluated time. -Forced Sunday hours to work Amazon parcel deliveries. -Run down and dirty vehicles, equipment, and facilities are demoralizing and hurt productivity.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?

      I have an interview with the owner coming up and how would you answer if the they ask when I can start when I have two set/booked vacations in the upcoming months? For reference: I leave for one in 2 weeks for a month and the other one is in the beginning of December for 2 weeks. I don’t want to say immediately because of the trips, but if I don’t say immediately then I might lose the job. Help!

      Hello guys, I applied as Chemical engineer in a big company and I did with them all the interview steps (last one on 05/09/23), at the time of the interview there was no job opening and I got the interview through another division. Last week I received an email saying that they will let me know their final decision by the end of this week. Today I have received an email (with the job description attached) scheduling a call in few days for sharing the decision. Do they want to reject me on call?
