    I have been working at Canada Post full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Very independent work
    - Paid for the expected work load, not for the time it takes to complete it. If you can complete 8 hrs of work in 5 hrs that's good for you.
    - Depending where you work there is a lot of available overtime.

    Cons

    - The bureaucracy of multiple middle managers can get tedious.
    - The quality of management and depot organization is very inconsistent. Some depots are a breeze to work at while others are Kafkaesque.
    - It can be very hard on the body, repetitive motion injuries are almost a guarantee if one doesn't take care of themselves.

    I have been working at Canada Post part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, worker's rights, paid training, supportive management and supervisors,

    Cons

    Have to work as an casual (on-call) employee for several years before you can be a permanent employee with benefits and fixed hours. You won't know until the same morning if you are working that day. Days worked are too few and far apart when operations not busy. New hires are at the bottom of seniority and get called the last.
