Could be a great company if it wasn't run so badly!!!
Postman (Current Employee) – Orpington – 9 January 2018
Used to be a great job - finish early, interact with the public, keep fit and the pay wasn't too bad either.
But now that its been privatised they expect us to work like slaves, doing twice the amount of work for no extra pay and it just keeps on getting worse.
The job has become impossible, longer work hours, less pay, terrible customer service... its all about profit, profit, profit.
You are lucky if you get to see your postman because most of the duties these days can't be done. And there are not enough staff to cover those duties as most of the staff these days have either been sacked, dropped dead on their round or are off with long-time stress.
Bad management, impossible work loads
