    I have been working at Royal Mail part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with part-time hours as some overtime is available. A customer facing role allows you to actually speak to customers and appreciate their requirements and feel involved with the community your serving. Autonomy once you're out delivering. Plenty of exercise.

    Cons

    Communication between employees and management could be improved; Information isn't always communicated consistently.

    Advice to Management

    It helps to be given the opportunity to become familiar with certain rounds and the customers requirements. Appreciate that employees need to fit work around their existing commitments - it shouldn't always have to be the other way around. Holiday entitlement should be available on a first come first served basis.
