If it's the main sorting office, it's horrible.

I don't know the office you'll possibly be working at, but I used to do it at the one in "Angel, N1".
There's no natural light, and you were throwing off letters and parcels for hours on end.

It's mind numbingly boring, but the money was good.

i would imagine you get to meet the legend pat:thumbsup:

It's like Christmas everyday!

Mind numbingly boring but ok on a temp or P/T basis....I was going o do a months worth of nights for some extra xmas cash,but wont if they do go on strike as I would never cross a picket line

ironic how you have to apply online and not by letter.......

I love to give Royal mail a try , just to see whats all the Fuss about..............:prop:.
30,000 Temp jobs ?? ............... I could see alot of our mail/package ending up on ebay !!!!
