As Santa's domain creeps ever closer, the amount of mail being processed through Canada Post is becoming truly obscene. During the holiday season, even as snowstorms make the streets more annoying than ever, the mail service needs extra drivers, handlers and mail sorters to make sure everything gets to its destination on time (or something like that).
If you're in need of some extra income this winter, check out the openings at Canada Post — there are more than one hundred jobs open across the country right now, and plenty of them are located right in Montreal! You don't even have to speak French, or have any experience doing anything before. Lucky you!
