Overworked, Stressful, Not Flexible With Hours, Postmaster is a Jerk
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Shenandoah, VA – December 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.

Overworked, Stressful, No breaks, bad supervisors, no advancement opportunities in the foreseeable future
