Worked on contract enjoyed my time there. Very friendly, professional atmosphere with good work environment and health and safety excellent. Video coding was fast paced at times with very strict times. Regular breaks under health and safety rules were excellent and never missed. Made me feel very welcome and we all worked together as a team and family.
Pros
Flexible Hours, Good Portable Machines for Food & Drinks
Cons
Outdated equipment in computer rooms, old desks and chairs needs upgrading

sorted mail, took off vans and unpacked, and stacked on big truck and in ulds. I learned how to sort mail and stack mail on a truck. It was very hot exhausting work for me and repetitive. I found it hard as I was put down by one of the employees and had some rude stupid comments said to me by one of them. The hardest thing was putting up with this and stacking the truck which was very hot and I did this for an hour at a time sometimes.
I didn't enjoy any part of it.
Pros
free iceblocks had 3 times I remember and finish early sometimes. Kind, lovely co-ordinater. good pay
Cons
hot and exhausting

Employed as a contractor - virtually impossible to get in from the outside as a permanent due to union over-governance. Hot desking is the norm. If there are no desks available you need to turn around and go home to work.

Working as a casual relief Postal Services Officer for Australia Post was a great position in the national postal service. The company is an essential service Australia wide and I was proud to be part of the family. Corporate procedures and training are of the highest standard. The most attractive aspects of this position for me was the variety within the workplace, the customer facing role and working as a member of a fantastic, enthusiastic team. In my casual on-call position I worked and moved around to Post Shops throughout the South Metro area of Brisbane as relief staff. The days work would be full of variety and challenges and the many Post Shops where I worked allowed me to build relationships with staff in many different locations. Some of the more challenging times were days when we had a high number of customers when the need to be alert and be capable of resolving customer issues were the highest priority. I appreciated my work relationship with postal managers and particularly my network manager. Despite the casual nature of the job, due to my willingness and reliability to work at anytime at short notice, I was given regular hours.

Early starts & late finishes with the work day busy from start to end.
Plenty of pressure to get the work completed on time and on budget.


Some great mid level managers but a lack of support & focus from some senior managers.


Good change management focus and a large variety of job tasks.

I wish I could go back, this is an amazing company to work for. I believe the managers they're do an amazing job to make everybody feel included and special. The benefits such as dinner's Christmas parties birthday cake every month in the kitchen fruit every week coffee machines kitchen and outdoor garden sitting area massages every two weeks at your desk.

While working with Australia Post, I enjoyed learning all aspects of my job as a delivery postie on a motorbike. Working with a great team that was engaging and supportive. As I was interested to further my career I had the opportunity to Lead and mentor a team and provide the same encouraging workplace that I was introduced to. Overall a very satisfying job.

It good to work there as a contractor, you can face to face with the customer everyday, it's challenging. The other thing is a hard word starting early in the morning and finish late.

Loved the job, untill 10 hr days was a regular occurrence, just way to many hrs, mentally emotionally i couldn't handle the pressure. One thing you cannot knock back overtime otherwise your fellow workers will resent you because your share of overtime goes to others.

Management dont listen, dont give a stuff about staff health well being. Human resources division are as useless as . The people upstairs dont listen to staff concerns safety isn't a priority bullying the works. Health well being for employees are at risk .

Great culture, supportive team, early starts which aren't a problem, really enjoyed my time although cut short due to covid-19 definitely recommend being a postal worker. I'd suggest getting feedback on progress rather then waiting until the middle of training jusr so you know where you stand. I'm a slow learner so it took me abit longer to learn slotting.
I'd definitely reapply.
