I passed the physical yesterday and awaiting a call/offer. Do they send the offer by xpresspost still or just email.

Not sure if this has been posted but if you are re-applying then a passed physical is good for 6 months and the successful interview is good for 1 year.
I received neither of those. HR called me directly to come in to sign the offer papers.

Oh ok, thanks. Looking back through the thread it seems it's either an email or phone call now. I'm just anxious to hear back.

Not sure if the process has changed recently or what not, but during my time, the physical test was done at a CBI Health location.

As a friend, why would you persuade not to apply?
-Toxic work environment
-Underpaid for what your expected to do

i've got an answer now from my supervisor, he said there's no conflict working at Shopper's RPO as post office clerk, so i might as well go for it :) thanks again!

For the voting thing are we voting yes or no? I dont think there was any discussion on here on which way y'all are voting
I am not voting at all. In all previous meetings I went to, the union doesn't care what the membership wants, only what the executive decides is in "union" goals. I have also learned the membership, despite speaking up in these meetings, still vote to accept whatever the union hands them, because they can't scratch two nickels together and can't afford to strike....
Sometimes the truth hurts. The other times it hurts worse....

Well if he's employed elsewhere working in a better environment and higher salary then tell him to stick with that. But if he's unemployed then I'd say give him the opportunity to try it out.

mine was all e-mails until after the physical then it was a phone call to let me know the training date start...every step seemed to take around 1-2 weeks but really it is likely controlled more by upcoming training sessions...and it is also possible your recruiter may have booked off time around the long weekend so I wouldn't get too anxious.

I'm just trying to keep busy as I wait. Thanks for your input, the wealth of knowledge this thread has is helping me pass the time pretty well, lol.

Congrats! Your first day will be very easy, just let them (supervisor) know you are new when you first walk in. They'll most likely have the walk sorted for you and possibly the parcels exempt. Which means you'll be delivering only mail, neighborhood mail, and packets/small parcels. If you incurred any OT ask for the OT sheet.
