    If I have something sent to an office of my company, addressed to me recorded delivery, but that’s not my normal workplace – what’s likely to happen? It’s a big company with loads of mobile workers and few fixed desks.

    Do big offices go through all the recorded mail and sign for it generically or what?

    In my old office would be signed for and then dropped on my desk.

    More often than not would have been opened (still in the envelope) unless marked private & confidential.

    Is it porn? say it’s porn. I reckon it’s porn.

    You could phone them in advance and let them know so it doesnt get rejected by the person on the front desk. Or it might get forwarded to your normal work place… Or, you know, you could try asking them?

    It’s not porn, it’s a gift for my wife. Which isn’t porn.

    I don’t have a desk or a normal workplace either.

    Our reception desk sign for mail then call the person to come and collect it. We don’t have a huge mail room though and reception know me. Give the office reception a call and let them know you’re expecting a signed for letter.

    Our office is huge and therefore has a mail room. All mail gets signed for there and then there is an internal track an trace system which either finds it’s way to my desk or a pigeon hole if its small enough.

    But I suspect your office will be able to tell you what happens with there system better than a load of randoms on the internet who don’t know where you work!

    Recorded delivery items do not have to be signed for at all.

    I use to work in a small office (10 people) and RM would drop the post off and there would often be recorded items in there.

    We went mad at them and it took some arguing for them to agree to get it all signed for each time.

    In a large organisation the post will just be dropped off unless there are any special delivery or registered post items which do need to be signed for…

    I hope not that is what i got her

    at mine they are all signed for and left unopened unless – certainly gifts are and reception send you an e-mail

    Best bet is to contact the office and let them know it is on its way and tell them what to do with it,

    Have you considered asking this at the front desk?

    What sort of a work place are you at where you’re too scared to ask them and ask on here instead?!

    At my place, we get two, sometimes three post deliveries during the morning, and usually a small separate drop mid morning with some recorded. The other drops will have recorded mail mixed in with all the other mail, and it gets a signature as a mass delivery. Anything addressed to specific staff gets put to one side, and then given to the individuals concerned, or left on their desk if they’re not around. I’m the one who deals with the post and sorts it, which takes some time; I had 100 trays of mail on Monday, average 150 letters/tray, today three deliveries totalling 48, today was fairly light, and recorded mail can be buried anywhere in that lot, but it always gets to the intended recipient.
    Just not immediately…
    Dannybgoode’s last sentence is impractical in our case, far too much mail to pick out individual items, especially when you get anything up to 16 trays of mis-sorts, which is a mixture of RTS, Gone Away, Deceased, proper mail and stuff intended for other addresses, and things like train tickets, Amazon packages etc get buried in amongst it.
    Absolute pain in the ass to sort through.
    Most I’ve had in one day was 146 trays of mail. Knackering to sort.

    Do you work for yodel? If so check near the bins or under next doors office….

    or as suggested grow a pair and ask someone who actually works there!

    All recorded stuff should be signed for. it is now a conductable offence (in royal mail) to deliver a signed for item without signature, first time gets slap on wrist then it can lead to loss of job if it continues to happen. Not like a few years ago when you could sign for stuff yourself and just deliver it.
    Molgrips… As long as it has your name on it the company post room should be able to keep hold of it for you, just give them a shout and let them know its coming….

    I bet it’s internet drugs. Don’t want to personally sign for the parcel in case the ‘courier’ is Old Bill.

    The old trick.

    i got an email from the mailroom telling me there was some “swimwear” for me. The email definitely implied i was some sort of perv. It was 3/4 bibs so they were probably right 🙁
