"Trial Period" on a Permanent Contract

06 Oct 2018, 17:37

Hi, just wondering if there are any procedures in place with this or whether it falls simply on managerial whims? I’m a bit twitchy because I got stabbed in the back by an entirely unscrupulous employer almost a year ago, and really don’t want the stress of a repeat.

I should say that I haven’t had any indication that I’m on the chopping block but I came in at a time of high absence & under recruitment, and now neither situation is an issue. I can live without as much overtime but not on Jobseeker’s Allowance.

I have known people who can't even deliver correctly even after getting counselled stay at RM after the trial period, so being honest its extremely unlikely that you won't be confirmed especially if no issues have been raised directly with you.

Don’t worry about it, I have never known Royal Mail not keep somebody on after trial.

I've known trialists write off vans or lose special deliveries and they still got made permanent. I'm sure you will be fine.
