Only crappy part is your stuck on graveyards 3-8am which sucks
I don’t mind that shift at all. I absolutely hate day shift because of traffic. I’d take afternoon or graveyard over day shift

Congrats! Good to know, I should be getting a call soon. Did you request PT/FT when you submitted the change of call lists or just after you started at ppc?
I gave my PT/FT request the day my training for ppc started

Hi people, I have been lurking here for a while and I would like to thank you all for all the information above. I have recently started working as a Temp at the Oshawa depot and I just want to know if anyone has any experience and/or tips for this location. Should I apply to another area to try and get full time? I hear it is hard otherwise. I was not aware this location was almost all foot routes. I don't really have a problem with that though. I also heard that next year this location will go through "postal transformation" as it kind of got left behind the last few years and it will get a new location as well and have more motorized routes.

Thanks
Not sure how long other places are taking, but last I heard, Toronto is taking 10/11 months to get full time. Most people are going straight to full time.

Welcome to the thread, which over the years has become a great source of information.

They're expanding the night routers program to wicksteed and north fraser. Gonna be a shitshow.

How exactly is this going to work for a person doing Wave 2 walks? Or are they tying everything out for you as you get to the depot in the morning?

This is the stupidest idea, as the sorter isn't even walking the routes and just sorting it based off the header which is the SLOWEST way to do most routes.


and to add; They're going to be hiring people just to sort routes? seems like a dream job, hope they'll collate our flyers too while they're at it.

I'd say they'll be taking bids for that.

I'll probably bid on it if it happens at my depot. Nobody is going to last having to deliver for 8 hours on the street. Hopefully, 80% of the carriers in these "test" depots will be on wcb (not wishing it on my fellows though), and the company realizes it was a mistake, and reverses the decision before it gets any further....
Sometimes the truth hurts. The other times it hurts worse....

makes you wonder if it is just a bone to throw back in contract talks?

I've done routes that are 5 hours walking no matter how fast you are and boy did my feet/legs hurt that night at home.

So they want to make those routes an hour or more longer???? People will be dropping dead.

Maybe their plan is to make the routes nearly impossible, so morale becomes even lower coz we dont spend time together on the floor. It'll be impossible to keep new recruits, so then there'll be a shortage of workers. Then there'll be forcebacks on top of these mega long ass routes. So, to ease the physical strain on LCs, they very kindly offer up CMBs as a solution. We'd probably jump on the idea.

I start training Wednesday in Bowmanville. I can't help but worry about the whole on call part. Have you been working everyday in Oshawa? What has your experience so far been?
