Endured for money but at huge cost to myself

No chance of progression unless you have seniority.Lazy money obsessed workforce who will stop at nothing if they think you earn a penny more then them.Union men dictate their own job managers make others do union guys work so he can go home early. Do not work here if you value your health !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not work here if you value your health

Same role

Hard work and stressful

Had worked at Romford mail centre for 10 years on a Sunday night as a driver, had to take retirement due to ill health but found their management and union not very helpful. Had very bad depression and was called into an interview without any warning and was bullied by a member of management from another mail centre. To be honest his management skills were appalling. Had taken a replacement job to suit my hours that I had done for 10 years only to be bullied back into a position that I was unable to do. Everything was on record with regards to my health but in my opinion no notice was taken.

Good place to work

Good place to work with decent pay and benefits. It isn't the best social life hours if you have outside activities or a family. Work isn't too strenuous although can be repetitive.
