I managed to get out of Royal Mail on a medical retirement so I left with quite a good pay off as I'd worked there since 1978, I loved my job as a foot postie in those days but the last 15 years were horrible, we used to provide service and had time to deliver it but the structure changed and the upper management wanted savings even though in 1980 Royal Mail were making a Million pound profit every day, managers now are under so much pressure from upper management to balance the books and cut costs they do bully you into not claiming overtime even when you have worked over your time, great in the 80s 90s horrible now

Bullying culture at senior management level, unrealistic targets, DOMs left to take the blame for unskilled operations managers. Delivery simplification only a new tool to pass the blame to the DOMs. CMA often week and unable to change things.

I would have stayed in this job until the day I dropped dead if I could have! Unfortunately the physical work takes its toll and my health was suffering (lots of joint pain plus plantar fasciitis and other foot problems) so I had to (very reluctantly) leave.

I retired from my full time career and wanted part time physical work which this was. It was brilliant except for working Saturdays. I did very few of them in my career. I’m not going to start doing them in my retirement job!
