    I worked at An Post full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free doctors and prescriptions. Otherwise not much for a reasonably intelligent and hard working individual. Overtime when available. Some trustworthy colleagues.

    Cons

    Bullying a major issue. Incompetent managers who lack professionalism, tact, diplomacy and the wherewithal to address bullying in the workplace. Nepotism. Inept and unwilling Union representation. HR an absolute disgrace.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent and poorly trained (if trained at all) management.

    Pros

    Job security not much else

    Cons

    Managers picked for ability to brown nose. Ability not an option. Company and union too close. Any dissenters are promoted out of way. Union spouse and children welcome before others esp if union negotiator. Very bad morale. Job casualised and full time staff being bullied out of company in favour of part time casual. Managers in mail centres and GPO paid for nothing. If asked to write account of their duties most wouldn't get past first paragraph.management protects management bullying is endemic. In mail centre sexual harassment is tolerated by management indeed some of the worse culprits are managers.a sad company ,

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act before there is a court case to open up the floodgates
