Professional and Secure job.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire – 29 October 2018
I have worked for the Royal Mail twice. Once in 2007 and last year 2017.
Both times were very good. I was part of the agency staff but i knew that Royal Mail did have overall better benefits and a lot more efficient. There is no time wasting and people have to work hard.
I felt a bit let down last year with the amount of excessive volume from other workers on the night shift.
At times it was hard to focus due to the noise volume. However, they were never really warned about it. Which as a mature worker, i didn't like and felt disrespectful.
However, were these noisy individuals able to do their work? yes, they were. Which is the reason they were never fired. However, i do think management as a whole need to step in and do more on the issue. It cannot be just one sided because you are having good results. Results like that don't last forever and surely at some point the gloves will come off!
Pay, job security, overtime
noise volume on night shift, lacking a leader.
