Post sorter (Former Employee) – Talbot green – 25 May 2018
as it was only for a Christmas job it only went on for two weeks, we were well informed and taught what we should do and why, my main job was primary post code sorting which is the 1st two letters of any post code.

I was there for 4 years. I was promised a contract over and over again and it didn't happen. I was a good, hard worker that saw people that had barely been there for any time given full time contracts. These people just so happened to be related to the managers. Nepotism should not be the reason people are given contracts. We should be judged on merit.
The Union isn't there to help the workers it seems but to help themselves and the company. Complaints were totally disregarded.
Good working conditions in terms of breaks and work load was manageable.
Nepotism and corruption at the higher levels, Abuse of 0 hour workers

on a typical day at work I would have to be distributing letters to various home addresses, or I was sorting letters. it was a nice and quiet place to work, not too much noise, everyone was concentrated and well manered

I really enjoyed my time with Royal Mail as the hours an working environment suited my skills set. It provided me wit an insight in a company with large numbers of staff. It was a shame that it was only a temporary role.

Royal Mail is generally a good place to work . Bonuses and shift allowances Plus overtime make the earning potential very rewarding. A generous holiday Entitlement is allocated according too length of service. extra leave can also be Purchased with a small deduction from your weekly pay. Advancement into Management is also encouraged with training and support available too those who wish to do this.
Extra earning potential. Generous holiday entitlement.

Parcel Sorter (Former Employee) – Wolverhampton, West Midlands – 22 March 2018
This was just a christmas temp sorting parcels and the best part was i got to work in a group which was fun and i got to make some good friends. However i was working 12-13 hour shifts with only 1 small break.
Also being in a very large warehouse it was extremely cold, the floor being so cold to the point your legs do hurt so shorter but frequent breaks would have been better.
