Excelent as a postman, appalling as a middle manager
Delivery Office Manager (Current Employee) – Bristol, Bristol – 20 March 2017
Imagine a business with no performance standards, where staff are so protected by the union that as a manager you are pretty much irrelevant.
Then above you, you are constantly managed with a stick, no logic, rhyme reason or support . As they too know the Unions run and rule the company.
The add to the situation that most are near retirement and thus don't want to rock the boat as they have good pensions to look forward to.
Basically stuck in the middle of all this as a delivery office manager or line manager.
Imagine a workload so impossible to manage, that even your area manager says try to achieve 80% of what your meant to do!
This is the Royal mail,
90% of new Delivery manager entrants do not last a year
Good pay, good benefits, good holiday
Thankless, frustrating, bullied, mental abuse
