Due to recent home problems I am very stressed and it is impacting my health;I spoke to my DOM and he suggested he could get me a temporary move to the mail centre if I was finding my delivery too much at the minute. Has anybody worked both as a postperson and now at a mail centre? Is the mail centre actually a less stressful environment or is it the same amount of stress just a different kind?

If you don't mind having a manager(s) watching over you all the time then you may find the mail centre less stressful. But if you like being your own boss for most of the day then it might not be for you.

I've never done deliveries but I've worked in four mail centres. The type of atmosphere you get varies widely. From stand-around and chat half the time to what Deadly said.
That being said, I've read a lot of posts from people on delivery. There are some duties in a mail centre that are nearly as demanding as being outdoors but it's nowhere near as tiring across the board.
edit: Oh, and showing up hours early for work? Getting the sack for bringing a few letters back? I've never seen anything like that.
