Now that the most wonderful time of year is almost here, Canada Post is hiring across the country for the holiday season.
These are high-paying jobs and you'll make over $20 an hour which is way more than minimum wage in Canada!
If you get hired for these new seasonal Canada Post jobs, you'll help sort mail and parcels to ensure people and businesses get all of their packages.
The holiday season is the busiest time of the year for Canada's national postal service and over a million parcels are delivered each day during the holidays.
So, hundreds of "Postal Clerk — Holiday Season" positions are available in Ontario, B.C., Quebec and Manitoba right now.
With these Canada Post holiday jobs, you'll be tasked with sorting mail items into batches and operating mail-processing equipment.
You'll also transport mail between floors or sections using rolling or motorized equipment, check mail items to make sure the address and postage are correct, and enter data into a computer.
Since this is a seasonal job, you need to be available to work with Canada Post from November 15, 2023, to January 15, 2024.
The flexibility to work shifts along with the ability to stand in one place for up to three and a half hours at a time, lift and carry items, and read, write and speak in English and/or French is required.
You don't need any previous work experience in a warehouse or plant environment but that's considered an asset.
When it comes to how much you'll get paid if you're hired for the position, the Postal Clerk salary is $22.68 an hour.
