    Current Employee - Postman in Diss, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Postman in Diss, England (UK)

    I have been working at Royal Mail part-time (more than a year)


    - good pay
    - well looked after, pension scheme, sick pay, up to 6 weeks paid annual leave and CWU union backing.
    - overtime always available for extra cash.
    - your essentially your own boss once you have started your round.
    - you spend the majority of time working outside so your not stuck in a hot sweaty environment all day.
    - generally a good atmosphere in the delivery office and friendly banter.


    - some rounds are really small and some are huge.
    - working outside in horrible weather can be a pain.
    - sometimes bosses and managers will send you out on a round you haven't been trained on which is unfair, usually you will need atleast 1 day training on a town round and atleast 3 on a rural.
    - bosses and managers have no idea how hard it can be at times and make you feel stupid.
    - some customers are hard to deal with and will moan at you for being late or find something to complain about. (However a lot of customers are really friendly).
    - seniority takes place over juniority for annual leave and the choice of rounds.
    - days can be very long when parcels and mail are heavy but you are entitled to finish on time and arnt forced to work overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Bosses and managers should test how long rounds take for themselves on a busy day Wednesday or Thursday.
    - get rid of the dead wood that work there and moan 24/7 and make the place miserable, they've never had another job and don't know how easy they have it.
    - make it easier for employees to progress in their career. Something as simple as offering a first aid course.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
