Usps
City Assistant Carrier (Former Employee) –  West Hartford, CTDecember 12, 2017
The USPS is a very hard-working and fast-paced environment. It is one of few places you do not need a college degree to move up within the organization, which is great for a young adult who does not want to continue their education.

Working at the post office was very stressful
Mail Handler (Former Employee) –  Denver, CODecember 12, 2017
Working there was very stressful, management expected employees to work without end. No matter what the weather or situation, employees were expected to perform at the same speed no matter what. I loved carrying the mail but did not like having to continue working past my 8 hour shift until all the mail was done. That took sometimes all day until late in the evening. There were not really times to take breaks besides taking a few bites off of a protein bar.
Pros
great pay
Cons
no family life

handeling and delivering mail and articles in a timely fashion
Mail Handler/Clerk (Former Employee) –  Bellmawr, NJDecember 12, 2017
My duties included the safety and delivery of all mail and articles that came through the building. I learned different zip codes and what each form was in the postal service. The management was hard they stood over you to ensure your doing the job correctly. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy trays and moving them out as quickly and safely as possible.
Pros
the breaks in between
Cons
no benefits

great place to work if can get full time
PTR Custodian (Current Employee) –  Crisfield, MDDecember 12, 2017
Great place to work if can get full time work. Different positions pay differently and you can't hold multiple positions to retain full time work even if there are positions available.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
not enough hours, too many specific positions

In the position of Data Conversion Operator (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KS 67207December 12, 2017
As a postal carrier I enjoyed the ability to work on my own. I also enjoyed being able to reach management for assistance easily if needed. The post office provides the vehicles and maintains their vehicles very well!

CCA life
City Carrier Assistant (Current Employee) –  Marshall, ILDecember 12, 2017
As a CCA, in a small office, some say its better. I disagree with that. In small offices, you get loaned out to other offices, so you may work like 4 hours at your office and then get told you have to go to another office and work 6 to 8 additional hours in a town you're not familiar with. They can loan you out to any office within 50 miles of your home office. The other down side to being a CCA in a small office is that you have to wait for someone to retire in order to get a career position which means you have to work 6 days a week up to 12 hours a day, and only get time off if you get it pre-approved. The pros to working in a small office would be the support you receive from management and the way you get treated by your coworkers. its more like a family than a job at a small office.The money and benefits are great, but trust me you WORK for that money it's not an easy job. It is stressful, and overwhelming. definitely not for everyone but if you think you can handle it, then by all means, apply :)
Pros
benefits, pay, management and staff
Cons
hours worked, distance traveled, lack of career opportunities

Good steady job
Rural Carrier Associate (Current Employee) –  Prairie Grove, ARDecember 12, 2017
The job is steady and very reliable. Advancement is very minimal. The atmosphere really depends on you and your co-workers, it can very cut throat or very enjoyable it varies.

Overworked, Stressful, Not Flexible With Hours, Postmaster is a Jerk
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) –  Shenandoah, VADecember 12, 2017
The pay is good if you can overlook the fact that your postmaster is a jerk who talks about employees behind their backs, spies on them several times a day, makes them drive a massive promaster for the smallest route in the building, which means you have to stop and get out of the vehicle every time to deliver to a mounted mailbox, etc. Takes years to move into a permanent career position, and you'll be working upwards of 6-7 days a week, average of 9 hours a day because of late trucks. Also made to walk 6-8 miles a day while carrying a heavy satchel (10-20 lbs.) full of magazines and packages on your shoulder.
Pros
Salary, Healthcare, Dental
Cons
Overworked, Stressful, No breaks, bad supervisors, no advancement opportunities in the foreseeable future

CCA (Current Employee) –  El Segundo, CADecember 11, 2017
This job is good but not to be working there for a long time. I think its more of a temporary job for some people. Most carriers tell me they should of found something better a long time ago but now its to late to change job.

Management is a joke
Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, MADecember 11, 2017
DO NOT WORK HERE. Management is horrible. you will be hired under the impression that it is a part time job and then be required to work 60+ hours a week and that wasn't even the busy season. I give this place 10 years tops and then they'll be closed. The management is seriously that poor. p.s. you can take a lunch or break, but be prepared to not finish in time and then get yelled at. so basically no breaks or lunch with days that are easily 10 hours long
