Is there a maximum time period that the trial period for postmen/ women can go on (I’m currently on trial for +9 months and it’s unclear when it will end).

Is the salary rate increase advertised for working more than +6 months given when the trial ends? (The ad mentions for satisfactory performance so just wondered if this means the end of the trial). Thanks.

Have you been told you are on trial all this time, or is it just that no one has told you that you are doing ok and have passed the trial? From experience no one says anything about how you are doing unless you are making big mistakes!

You should have got a pay rise after six months, it would be six months to the day that you started - so it comes through looking like a normal pay slip but with a bit more than before.

If you’ve gone by 6 months your off trial.

I would but I am not sure what you are asking about, or if you are.

Unless its the contract thingy. You are permanent from the moment the contract starts (as long as it is a permanent contract of course), the probation period is a standard part of most permanent contracts in most fields of work, its to give both you and the business an out if it doesn't work out.

I have not yet known anyone to fail the probation, being extended because of sickness is fairly common, but being released is very rare.
