Postal Officer (Former Employee) – London – 11 March 2018
Every day was different, and every customer was different. Loved the variety. A very unique job, every day was a learning day, either from the workplace, or the customers. Managers who worked their way up in the job were easier to work for, but the post office started bringing in managers from outside the job, and the culture was very different. It made it an "them and us culture". Some personalities worked with us, but some were a bit of a jobsworth. The hardest part of the job was when they changed the way things were done, but didn't pass the message on. Enjoyed working with my colleagues, met some interesting people over the years, and most of the customers had interesting stories to tell.
