I learnt a lot and progressed a lot in my time at nzpost. My manager was supportive like the rest of my team. Very demanding job and a lot of work but you are always recognised, praised and sometimes rewarded for your hard work. Overall great company but a little too stressful of a job at times
Pros
Great management support and opportunities
Cons
Long hours and sometimes stressful

Can be stressful at times but its up to u to pace yourself.
Fast working environment but can also be draining

I feel the team leader needs to remember that we are adults and to show more respect when addressing a situation.

Team needs improvement in how to work together

Too many chiefs not enough indians.

Gossip n back stabbing is terrible.

Pay rate needs to be at least $25 up especially for the work we do there.

Management shouts need to improve

Come on u see how busy we get feed us a proper munch

Break times need to b longer.

Stock up on water bottles and milk
Pros
Meeting good people
Cons
Better work shouts

If it wasn’t so political it would have been an amazing job. Managers and above are rubbish to deal with and the people often effected get left without a voice. If you work too well you get punished also
Pros
Good money, good working days
Cons
Management, gossip, drama

management isn’t great, and there’s little to no opportunity for development, and the pressure to meet Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) are quite high. The job itself is quite mentally and emotionally draining

Needless to say, there’s a lot of room for improvement. The attrition rate is quite high (over 50% I think). The starting rate is okay though.
Pros
Good people, Pay is okay for what you do
Cons
Poor management, High stress, pressure to meet targets, toxic customers that can be mentally & emotionally draining.

Management was great. Got the job through Onestaff recruitment. Just the hours did not really suit me. Fast pace but not stressful. Mainly a casual role. Work was ongoing, but no stability

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
