I took on this role because my last job was long hours and very stressful, so I was looking for something that was less so. Look no further than being a postman.
The hours are great as you have your evenings and some weekends, the job is fairly simple once you get used to it and its fairly well paid considering the role, also the exercise is great too.
Although if you want a challenge...this is not for you, it becomes monotonous after a while, the managers are just puppets for senior management and their only role seems to be passing down bad news from above. Also some (not all) postal workers are not used to have worked anywhere else and they think they are hard done by when really they aren't.
Since its been privatised, things have tightened up and management works to costs above everything else, the postal workers say its not the same anymore and its harder work, when in reality they just had it too handy before.
Exercise, decent working hours and fairly easy work.
Monotonous, cost driven and poor management
