Awesome place to work, everyone is nice. There are always opportunities to advance your career with post. Best job in the world, they focus on work life balance and can help with any problems you or your family is having. The posties are friendly and helpful and full of information. The equipment and uniforms are of exceptional quality.
Postal Delivery Officer (Former Employee) – Newcastle NSW – 12 September 2018
I found it was hard work for little pay. The motorcycle is uncomfortable for 6 - 7 hours of delivery which you will be forced to do and eve electric vehicle has little suspension and poor seat design so it’s the worst vehicle you could ever ride over the smallest bumps.
National FP&A Manager Mail Operations (Former Employee) – Strathfield NSW – 24 July 2018
Australia Post was /is undergoing a lot of change and my main issue was the Operations Dept made changes e.g structural with no inclusion or input from Finance. That made Finance come under fire and seem irrelevant.
SubContractor (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 2 July 2018
I have been working in Australia post as a sub contractor from five and half years but work conditions have been gone from worse to worst. There was paid waiting time for express if it’s late but now they expand the time from 7am to 8.30am even some times says strait no to pay for the waiting time regardless of time. Not a single cent paid for sorting parcels, arranging them and loading them in van which takes at least 4 hours in the morning. Poor behaviour of staff make it worse.There is no increase in pay when they add capturing photos of all the safe drop parcels and cards left for customers to collect parcels but takes more hours of subcontractors . As a result poor service of delivery and in affective communication with customer is increasing day by day.

Very good employer and good opportunity for advancement

The most enjoyable part of the job is you meet new people and you see lots of new places
Australia Post is easy to learn, for the most part staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Willing to lend a hand when needed as well. The pay is pretty decent. Around $23-35/h depending on what shift you're on. Overall, great place to work. Loved it
