The job is what you make it
Need to be a hard worker and keep your noise clean and hassle free to management and you are well accepted

Moaning does not get you anywhere and you only drag your colleagues down


Keep alert and balance yourself and your personal life balanced to enjoy the job. No one with do it for you


Be strong and straight with people


Manage timing well on the job


Very enjoyable job when out doing the role confidently and avoid or take lightly the politics culture

Ok
It was an experience that enriched my life with experience. New friends, team work. Good management team. Reliable and honest way to earn a living. I highly recommend this as a place to work. It has a union , canteen. Often overtime available especially during seasonal celebrations. It’s own canteen as well as vending machines.
Pros
Good safe environment
Cons
Can be clicky

Hard work and stressful
Had worked at Romford mail centre for 10 years on a Sunday night as a driver, had to take retirement due to ill health but found their management and union not very helpful. Had very bad depression and was called into an interview without any warning and was bullied by a member of management from another mail centre. To be honest his management skills were appalling. Had taken a replacement job to suit my hours that I had done for 10 years only to be bullied back into a position that I was unable to do. Everything was on record with regards to my health but in my opinion no notice was taken.

Productive and fun work place
i started working for royal mail 22 years ago in that time a lot has changed. I used to be an easy job not to demanding but with letters in decline and the growth of the parcel side there is not enough time to do your job.

My ideal job
Working long hours where I am able to think and be left to my own devices is something I get a lot of satisfaction out of and I could work more hours if I was allowed.

Royal mail
A typical day at work would involve tipping and sorting mail into 1st/2nd class. Pushing yorks to their destination. Sorting parcels into 1st/2nd class so I learnt about postal areas. Management were friendly and easy to approach. They are also a diverse company to work for. The hardest part of the job was being on your feet for long shifts. The most enjoyable thing was working with different types of people.

Un professional management
Very poor management. No training. No support. No information. You'll be sent out without a clue where you're going on your own. Management lazy rude and prioritise favouritism to those who are close buddy to them. No team work and some of management staff doesn't know why they are there for. Weekend more managers than staff. Total failure.

Personally draining but the money and benefits are good
Honestly, I have learnt a lot working here and it has served me well. But I am too career driven to work in a warehouse for the rest of my life. Most of the staff and management are easy enough to get on with. The job itself couldn't be easier, so for the pay and benefits it's a pretty good deal, if you don't mind your mind numbing over time.

Low morale
Management are useless, not organised, don't know what they are doing. Enjoy meeting people and doing the job, just the politics between management and union. The harder you work the more they want from you for nothing
