Christmas Casual Mail Sorter (Former Employee) – Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire – 20 March 2018
A very hectic workplace which meant the time went quickly. It was great to come across such a variety of people from differing backgrounds, interests and ages.
Learned to work as part of a team but also was left to carry on with our duties when necessary. The hardest part of the job was when the first class post needed to be dealt with as this was so time crucial.
Meet some great people from variety of backgrounds, ages etc.
Working environment chaotic and impersonal. Space at break times was very limited.
Royal mail Collections Driver (Former Employee) – Chatham, Kent – 17 March 2018
Brilliant company to work for, this knowledge comes from my previous experience from working for the company for over five years and being contracted for them individually for two years as a professional driver.
Reporting Analyst (Former Employee) – London – 17 March 2018
I didnt particularly have a great experience at the time - it was stresful and the lead was very pushy almost threatening. I didnt know what the best way to handle or if I could involve HR hence decided to move out.
Lack of transparency - it was awful for me. Long hours and I was learning so it felt like I was trapped to do it or just get out.
Postman (Former Employee) – Tunbridge Wells, Kent – 15 March 2018
Basically start the day by sorting mail and prepping duties ready for delivery. Then, after van checks go out and deliver mail. On return to office return any items to their respective places. Overtime is available. Mainly going out to collect mail from businesses and post boxes. From this job good time management, working as a team and on one's own, how to route a delivery can all be learned. Hardest part of job is the early starts and the easiest is being out on delivery. Though the management did use bullying and harassment techniques to coerce the workforce into compliancy.
New Business Sales Executive (Current Employee) – Warrington – 9 March 2018
A good place to work when looking for progression in a sales oriented role. Work/life balance is manageable and the management does try to meet you half way. Would recommend to anyone looking for a sales position
Atmosphere on the team
Sometimes too much pressure resulting in not enough support from other departments
Inbound/outbound customer service (Current Employee) – Doxford – 6 March 2018
permanent staff get everything while you'll be threatened with sack after 1 or 2 sick days (months apart). You will be moved onto whatever campaign the permanent staff don't like and will be messed around with hours to suite the permanent staff.
This place is basically run by the union and permanent staff who constantly cry about any little thing.. Then the temporary staff are messed around to suit the whims of this or let go with only a few hours notice.
Never worked for a company with such contempt of it's temporary staff
