Postman (Current Employee) – Wisbech, Cambridgeshire – 20 January 2018
The job is perfect for someone who wants to put as many hours as possible per week into it, in the last 5 years the workload has become around 40% higher and the time and equipment given to compleat your tasks have not been changed to adjust to this sadly hence i am seeking other employment
MDEC Data handler (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent – 19 January 2018
The job doesn't require a lot of skills and is beneficial for those seeking for experience. The pay was good and didn't demand much - and were willing to further extend your position with the Royal Mail if they deemed you to be a credit to the team. It was a quiet job however It's only a temporary position.

Royal mail platform operator (Former Employee) – Cardiff – 17 January 2018
I enjoyed the Royal mail so much i was gutted when my time came to an end as a casual on the platform. All the managers we great and friendly towards me. I was asked to continue for 2 extra weeks during my time as a casual and had people who work there full time ask me to defiantly apply when a job comes up
Poor employer ruined by really bad, bullying management
Delivery Line Manager (Former Employee) – Uk – 16 January 2018
Used to love my job but left after 13 years service. The money is good but there’s more to life than that! Company has been ruined by poor management and unrealistic targets. I would not recommend RM to a dog.
Poor management, stress, poor company on the whole
Data Entry Keyer (Former Employee) – Plymstock – 16 January 2018
Royal Mail MDEC Data Entry Keyer
First week seemed repetitive and boring. After getting into the swing of things, it was easy money and well worth getting used to. In the end I wish I could have carried on after the Christmas period. Working from 6:30am to 12:30 was actually very enjoyable, having the rest of the day to any day to day activities and errands. Good job!
Postman/Driver (Current Employee) – Ilford – 16 January 2018
Everything concerning the job is good but there is too much walking and the all weather type of working is really uncomfortable.Worker security is not 100% guaranteed and workers have to exercise maximum care in our daily duties despite the great risks involved. A lot of benefits, side attractions and pension benefits.
Mail Sorter (Former Employee) – Swindon – 15 January 2018
Normally, I would separate the first class, second class and return letter into different boxes. I learnt to manage my time, work efficiently and communicate well with my fellow workers. I think that the job wasn't too organised because at times we would be randomly pulled out and sent to machinery work which we weren't allowed to do. Therefore we would have to inform the manager that we aren't allowed. The hardest part was standing for hours in one spot for 5 hours with only a 15 minute break. However, the most enjoyable part was meeting new people who were around my age.
