Quick paced, union job, extreme weather conditions at times
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) – Cinnaminson, NJ – September 17, 2018
Loved my 33+ years working for the USPS. Provided a good family income for us and never brought work home with me. My customers have become family to me since I have been on the same route for 21 years. The toughest part was dealing with winter/snow, ice, and extreme heat conditions. Staying in shape is very important to last in this position.
Rural Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Elkhorn, WI – September 17, 2018
Casing and delivering mail and packages. Memorization was a key part of the job, in the office as well as out on the route. Did a lot of practice on my own time to make it easier for myself and to maintain efficiency. I loved the challenges and variety of working in the office and then out alone on the route.
Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee) – Valley Center, CA – September 17, 2018
Great job if you are self managed and have great time management skills, it's a quick paced job delivering but fun. Just don't let them add to your workload to make up for their lack of properly managing delivery routes. Management tries to cut cost by putting more work on the capable individuals.
*Get to know your Union Rep! *Report all harassment! *Keep to yourself.
No micro-management while delivering, driving, fast pace.
no real breaks including lunch, stressful, management, harassment
Rural Carrier Associate (Current Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – September 17, 2018
I have been a Rural Carrier Associate for over 2 years and applied for a City Carrier Assistant position at a number of post offices in my district including my own Post Office that I currently work at. After applying for a ton of open CCA positions in my district I finally had a job interview at the Post Office that I currently work at. The supervisor that interviewed me told me that 11 new people that never touched a piece of mail at the Post Office was more qualified than me to become a CCA even though I do more work as a RCA in my current position!! Mine you I wanted to become a CCA because I would have liked to work more hours each week and have some type of pto time and benefits!! A RCA position is the worst position in the Post Office!! It is a temporary job with no benefits!! I am pursuing another government position with benefits and stable employment. This is the worst job that I ever had in my life. All you are is a body to fill the position!
Rural Mail Carrier RCA (Current Employee) – Michigan – September 17, 2018
I have been a RCA for 14 months. Most of my experience is positive. RCA’s get no benifits at all. You work you get paid, you don’t work you get no leave or sick days. I have found it tough to go to the doctor or dentist or any appointment. I have been ask to cancel a doctors appointment due to no one to run the route. Most of the regular carriers are great to work with and offer assistance. We have one that takes the day before every holiday and the day after every holiday. Because we are short handed no one else can take any leave for a holiday. If you need a pay Check work here. If your looking for a job with benifits ie medical, dental, 401K you have to be a regular and that could take up to ten years.
Not my employer, but the project that I worked while at IBM
IT Consultant/Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 16, 2018
This is not a company, but a project. Why don't you give users of your system the option to complete these reviews, especially when the system does not understand the difference between a company and a project.
Mail Carrier (Current Employee) – Upper Marlboro, MD – September 16, 2018
Working for this company will allow you to comfortably take care of your family. It’s an environment where you control you of course with stipulations. It’s a great career for people with no college degree. Awesome money and benefits!
