Full Time Mail Handler Group Leader Grade (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – December 12, 2018
Working at the PD&C is like working at a large HS or bad sex club or a mix of the two. Everybody has interoffice relations and the wjole plant overall is just immature and gossipy. The senior staff has 30+ years in and are stuck in there ways. Its a shame because it would run much smoothly if all tours and everyone worked as a team. good pay good hours job security great if u have no kids or dont mind physical labor
hours, overtime, benefits
micromanaged, dirty work environment, not so nice co workers
Casual Mail Handler (Seasonal Position) (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – December 19, 2018
I worked for the United States Postal Service for three years. The first year was challenging, the second year was great, but the third year remained harassed by management. Management was very rude, unprofessional, and cut-throat. If you don't fit into their circle, they will find ways to terminate you. They are bullies and I honestly don't understand how could the federal government employ and promote such individuals to management. The sad thing about this, is that they don't care. So sad.
Mail Handler/Safety Trainer (Current Employee) – Amarillo, TX – January 5, 2019
The USPS is a self-supporting government agency. It has a Union Environment which is good and bad at times. Management will work with you if you give them enough advance notice. Since they are a Government agency people assume that their taxes pay the workers salaries. This is incorrect. The Postal Service is a self-supporting agency and receives no funding from your tax dollars.Also USPS is the only Government agency that gets fined by OSHA, and considering we have Post Offices nation wide any violation of 29 CFR.1910 &1920 can result in fines that are in the millions.

Casual Mail Handler (CEP) (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 27, 2019
I got the seasonal Casual Mail Handler position by applying online on USPS's website. The whole process takes about a month. All communication is done through email. After your interview, you will get tested for drugs, as well as be fingerprinted.
Then. you will attend a paid orientation.
• You will likely work 6 days a week and possibly 12 hours a day. Therefore, you will be tired.
• Your co-workers who have been working for many years will be helpful and nice, usually.
• As it is at many companies, some supervisors may be a bit curt or rude to some workers, however, most were nice.
Some people will say that hard workers are often given the more strenuous work, while "lazier" workers are given the easier tasks. I do believe that this does actually happen.
Hopefully, the station that you work at will have a somewhat clean facility with working bathrooms and water fountains.
I appreciate you for taking the time to read this, and I hope that you have an easygoing year.
Great place to work! Fast paced plant / Warehouse environment.
Mail Handler Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO/ Orlando, FL – January 31, 2019
All military veterans should apply here. You do not have to be a delivery person. There is plenty of plant / warehouse work available.if you are honestly looking for a job but or are not making what you think you are worth, give USPS a try. The work is definitely worth the pay. Mail handlers usually have almost unlimited overtime available in the distribution centers. All of the positions pay well for the workload you will be doing. This is still one of the last great companies that will actually pay you time and a half and double time when you go over 40 hours. I mention that because there is a lot of mandatory overtime. LOL. But that check is going to be looking like a well cooked steak on payday.
This is not a con for me, but people complain about mandatory overtime.
Postmasters and coworker are ignorant . Especially the the girl and man postmaster at night
Mail handler Assistant/ MHA (Former Employee) – New Castle, DE – December 23, 2018
They treat the rookie as slaves and bring packages out on the dock in which the female postmaster isnt allowed to do so . The ones that be there longer think they have the upper hand over the rookie and supervisors. Coworkers are rude . Postmasters are unhelpful . I wouldn't recommend this job at all . Especially at this location . And bathroom and lunchroom doesn't get cleaned and is very nasty. So much for being the post office .

CEP Casual Mail Handler (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT – January 15, 2019
Many flaws in how things are run at USPS and I gave some solutions to hopefully make next holiday period flawless. Good people working there. Some lazy people that rest on the holiday help, but I learned to excel and show my managers that I was busting my butt at this job. Hoping to be called back.
Great benefits, good people
Lazy people that are allowed to do dumb things and still have a job.
