Physically hard work not for the faint hearted
Postman/Driver (Current Employee) – Bath, Somerset – 17 September 2017
Delivering mail/parcels across a large area.
It's not rocket science, but is both physically and mentally draining.
You need to be highly flexible and able to adapt to new situations quickly.
A culture of using negative motivational tools is endemic throughout the company. With increasingly unrealistic targets, and a culture of cost cutting. This often leads to periods of low moral, and sometimes industrial dispute with management.
However, the people you work with are the best part of the job, posties are all great, very hardworking people, that care a great deal about their jobs and providing a great service. They are the heart and soul of Royal Mail.
