Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) – Eastleigh – 17 November 2017
An excellent work place to work in, great staff memebers. Lots of great bonuses for working for this company. I was gutted that my temporary employment came to an end with this company. Would love the chance to return!
Part of my job was to sort parcels into different area codes from London all the way to Leeds. We work as part of a large team in one of our processing or distribution centres, sorting mail either by hand or machine. Our main role is sorting mail/packets by hand or machine, bundling it into bags and containers in order for it to be forwarded to local delivery offices. As a sorter we needed to ensure parcels are in the right place for delivery or dispatch.

Royal Mail on the whole is a good place to work the work is good and you get paid what your worth. The only downside is like a lot of companies they try to make cuts which leaves the service not upto standard.
It is a great place to work with a stable structure and clearly defined roles and responsibilities. I have worked in both sales and marketing roles for over twenty years. Recently there is a focus on apprentices with apprentice schemes in several areas of Royal Mail including a B2B sales apprenticeship scheme.
Postman (Current Employee) – Scotland – 11 November 2017
My contract is 5hours a day, but I'm told I have to start an hour earlier, and finish when I finish...the daily round is a walk between 12-15miles, with a lot of stairs. Nothing like the quoted distance at interview, it's impossible to finish the round in the allotted shift time, so you work late until it's done. There's masses of sickness, injury, people leave as soon as they start... unless u are an athlete avoid!
Postal delivery person (Former Employee) – Bedford – 11 November 2017
Early starts were a must initially, with no time to get bored. Mornings would start with sorting mail and preparing for delivery. Always lots of chat going on as we worked, but it was fast paced so you needed to focus hard. Once on delivery it was nice to be on your own, however you nedded to be good at motivating yourself then as there was a lot to accomlish in the time allowed. The managment were usually good at being flexible. Changing staff or routes at short notice to cope with unexpected problems, all done with good humour usually despite the stress. Loved being out and about on delivery.

Postman/Driver (Current Employee) – Halstead – 10 November 2017
Royal Mails basic principle is that all mail and parcels are delivered. This means that in the delivery offices, there is always plenty to do. This is usually because there are not enough people to do the work and those that are there are not trained in enough duties in order to make the work force fully flexible. However, it can be very rewarding if not as well remunerated as it could be.
Postal Sorter (Former Employee) – Derby Mail Centre – 9 November 2017
Royal Mail is a good place to work. The pay is good. The work is shift work depending on where you work. Delivery work is fixed working five days out of six with a different day off each week.The job is hard but the people you work with are good humoured. The hardest part of the job is not knowing how much Mail you to sort in fixed amount of time. The best thing was when all the Mail was sorted and dispatched on time.
