Job is good to be in
Although I am currently working here as a temp I do prefer to be in a office job that would provide me with more opportunities. I feel that this job is great and the environment and people in it are amazing. But the pay rate isn’t that great so I would prefer to start another job in a new fresh environment
Pros
Working in an environment that is amazing
Cons
Pay rate is not good

Once great company to work for but loss in mail volumes forced it to make lots of people redundant which were at times bitter and controversial.
Was an excellent place to work until drop in mail volumes created job insecurity which led to lots of job losses and lack of empathy from company. Was supposed to be a job for life but unfortunately lost it's way
Pros
Good wages and conditions at first then all downhill.
Cons
Terrible management processes and lack of support at all levels.

I enjoyed my years at Post loved the people and their culture.
A typical day would start at 1pm Monday with a light load of mail, and on Tuesday it is more heavier as transport deliver from out of town. Then the week progresses to a steady flow of mail.I learnt how to process mail from Transport to Mail Sortation. I worked in Staging which is the area that consists of heavy lifting different sized mail and products.Management were very approachable and at times very slack at dealing with tardiness

Awesome place to work, I was fortunate enough to have a meeting with the area manager and I got an amazing insight into NZ Posts business ventures aswell as learning about aspects of his role. It made me want to work hard and see what opportunities arise.

I want more communication between employees and employers to be acknowledged but not one way.
Working hours should be more flexible to accommodate the family obligations and also help for the well-being of the employees. I think the employer sometimes listens to the employees because employees are doing the work and they understand what is going on the floor then the employer rely feedback from supervisors.l want to know more about the company.

Fast paced and fun to work.
Basically sorting parcels from 3.30 AM till 7 AM.The job has improved my attention to detail, and geographical knowledge of nelson. NZ post is a fun place to work with friendly colleagues and management. Hardest part of the job was to get up early during winter.

Average with good intentions.
I use to work at nz Post, first as a postie and sorting for about 6 years and went on afternoon shift sorting all of nz mail. I enjoyed my time there due to having 2 more boys went to work and where they went kohanga reo, but now they are older would like to come back to nz Post part time.

challenging in the sense that you handle a lot of irate customers
It's very challenging to take in calls because 5 out of ten customers keep on complaining about the services while the rest are asking to expedite the delivery of their packages.
Pros
free snacks on certain occasions
Cons
toxic calls, lots of irate customers

Heaps Of Fun & Too Much Politics(esp in Night Shift)
I am sharing my experience in Nightshift(9.30pm to 6).I found many positives there like funny environment,majority of good colleagues,a good team lead,a cool chargehand(former.)..A new chargehand now,just started(so take time to know more about him).BUT there are very few people who plays really nasty politics.I meant Really a NASTY one.And also the concept of BIG Gender Discrimination.Unfortunately our team lead doesnt know anything about this nasty politics and gender discrimination.
Pros
Funny People and Good team Lead
Cons
Nasty politics and Gender discrimination

Great job, good people but not great management
A typical day would begin with a 7:00am team brief. After we would do the daily checklists for our mode of transport and grab a scanner to do tracked and signature required parcels, followed by going to our cases that had our area of route(s).
The mail/workload would either be left up on the case to tie down with rubber bands in bundles or tied down by the sorters. We would then number our bundles and then put up the parcels, scan tracked parcels and number those.

At the time the company had released paxster, a four-wheeler electric motored golf cart looking vehicle. They are road-legal with speeds up to 45 km/h and in some areas able to deliver on footpaths. Although being E-bike and paxster trained I was more on a paxster.

Loading a paxster is easy if you know what you doing, it takes a bit to master and depends on how you layout your workload before loading and how much you can safely put in the front of the paxster.

After loading up you leave to your area from the branch via 60km/h roads. Some areas took up to 30 mins or longer depending on traffic. When you get to your area you deliver the mail. You are your own boss, It's as simple as that. If you were quick you could help someone. For team purposes, some of us went back in convoys, with 8 being the biggest I've lead. Once back at branch you plug the charging cord into the paxster and do the mis sorts. You would sign out with a time docket book.


What I learned was my city, in and out. I did all the areas done by paxster and e-bike. That mail should not be replaced by technology. As a delivery agent/postie, you

Was a good job but had lack of leadership. Has a good culture but need more work
The job is a good job. It is easy and very simple. But the con outweighs the pros. Bad leadership was a real issues. Lack of communication and voices were shut down a ignored. Dues to managers thinking they know better then the workers
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Bad process procedures

friendly place to work but rewarding as well
Each day very's in terms of mail or parcel volume, the workplace culture is most staff are very friendly and are willing to help out if needed.You learn a lot about where places are in New Zealand and different names for them as well as time management to get the work done.The hardest part of the job is like most jobs where it is more with the constant little changing day to day activities.
Pros
good hours, friendly staff
Cons
Lower starting Wage
