    1) We don't have mail rooms anymore… at least there isn't someone stationed there… it's more like an "automated" click & collect.

    2) Also been WFH.

  • The Mailroom is an ensemble comedy series about the inner workings of a Hollywood talent agency - and what it's like to be a clueless but ambitious 20-something trying to figure out your place in the world.

    Is it, just like the series?

    I thought this was just a place they sent people in movies, do they actually still have mailrooms?

    Our mailroom guy retired after 40 years of doing the same job.

    Hang in there. You can do it.

    I work in an office but, throughout the years when random people outside ask me, the mailroom is where I say I work! You get a lot of snobby people in the office depending on their position but the people in the mailroom are always the most down to earth! I often take them out or bring them a coffee when I go to get mine.

    I've worked in a few mailrooms and now working with printers and mailing, since the mail has slowed down. 8 years in still perfectly fine. I think where you work makes a big difference rather than the job itself sometimes.

  • I was also in the mailroom for a few years, but have since worked my way up to be CEO. Hang in there.

    Some of my fondest office memories was as an office admin person with mail room duties.

    There was work but also a lot of fun / laughs.

    I lasted 1 month in a mailroom, many moons ago. The job was OK the people working there, unfortunately, would get excited when a letter arrived without a stamp on it.

    • I had a female new starter who only lasted 1 day in the mailroom lol

  • I briefly worked in a mailroom, though I discovered a connection between a bunch of mail all addressed to Pepe Silvia and the absence of Carol from H.R.

    They tried to make me redundant shortly afterwards (I say tried, I mailed those pink slips halfway to Siberia)

  • Hopefully you stumble upon Elaine she'll promote you right to the top

    My second job was in a mailroom. There was three of us. The boss of the mailroom had been there for 25 years. I spent 8 months in the mailroom before shifting to another role. Went onto become a senior manager in the organisation.

  • Stupid Amazon delivery often mentions left in mailroom. It is stupid because in residential areas, there is no such a thing called mailroom.

    • I just check my mailbox when they say that.
