I have worked for NZ company for over ten years . My role was a Postie , which I really enjoy doing . I have left because of medical reason but will be looking forward to go back as a part time if they give me the opportunity . The only hardest part of the job when it's rain but you will get through it . I have learned so much from this job , getting along with co workers , dealing with customers and a lot of good feed back from customers including management which motivates me to perform my best and takes me up to the next level. The most enjoyable part of the job , you get on well with work mates , working together and learn from each other ..
One of the highlights was working in my home town, Otaki. 7am start and usually early finishes made the job enjoyable. This had to be my most favourite job. Exercise, outside in all conditions, meeting people, I loved it.
Working at NZ Post was an awesome experience. I worked only Saturdays whether it was raining or shining. Some days were better then others but overall it was enjoyable. Kept me fit and I made good and fun co-workers.
your average day consists of sorting mail in the morning average 2hours, once completed pull down mail and go deliver. delivery can take up to 3 and a half hours outside, very physical! most enjoyable part is definitely the people and a beautiful summers day. management isn't all that great but the jobs awesome no doubt.
Working as a Postie is demanding both physically and mentally. Working 6 days a week in this job requires above average commitment. The mail volumes change daily and can become daunting particularly after Easter and before Christmas. The weather can vary from icy and wet in Winter to extreme heat in Summer. It is important to work as a team and get full co-operation from management to get the job done repeatedly day after day. The enjoyable part is being outside on a fine day when most people are stuck inside at a desk. Mostly my co workers were easy to get along with.
Free shoes and clothing and good pay packet.
