    Postman/Woman With Driving Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal Mail (London, England).

    Interview

    Filled out an online application form. Attached my CV online. Within a few hours I was invited to do online tests. Those have to be done within 48 hours of receiving the invitation email.

    First test is a personality test which is pretty simple. Second one was a sort test. It’s kinda like a memory test really. You have to say if two given post codes/ addresses/ combination of numbers and letters are the same or not. Each question is timed which makes it a bit tricky.

    The first two positions that I applied for , got withdrawn So I got a bit of practice by the time I applied for my third position at a third office. I had to wait a while after this to hear back from them.

    Got a call from Recruiting person to say I’ve been selected and I had to go online and select the interview date.Interview was pretty simple the ask competency based questions. Within a week after the interview I found out that I got the job

    Used Korn Ferry online tests, tests were very challenging and especially the numerical test. Royal Mail did not provide confirmation of my completion of tests and have since only sent me automatic advertisements for new jobs despite not contacting me about the original job applied for

    Christmas Casual Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Mail (Bristol, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Applied and been accepted twice as a Christmas Casual during the past 3 years. The first time, myself and another casual worker turned up for the first day and RM staff were not even expecting us. They had no idea there were Christmas Casuals due to start work and we were sent home, and that was it. No further communication or an apology.
    This year, I gave RM a second chance and re-applied as a Christmas Casual and was accepted, due to start yesterday. I recieved an email and a text this morning informing me my shifts for the week have been cancelled. No apology. Nothing. I fully expect next week's shifts to be cancelled also.
    These are essentially zero hours contracts, so lawfully I cannot say they have done anything wrong. But it has been an utter waste of my time and money. You are treated as a disposable worker with no value, and they are happy to keep you as a backup worker, just in case they need you.
    I've learnt my lesson now, and will not touch this company with a bargepole.
    I have wrote this just to warn any folks considering applying for a Christmas Casuals role. I cannot talk on what it is like to work as a FT employee of RM.
    To anyone considering, I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for temp work.
