No work life balance
PSE Mail Processing Clerk (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHDecember 6, 2017
No work life balance. A very stressful place to work. You get treated like a child. Takes forever to be converted. Your a over worked. You work with people who get away with not doing any work

Expect to work a lot of hours during holiday season but plenty of paid time off and great job security. Really good about giving out your breaks and not over working you.

Terrible management
PSE Clerk (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIDecember 1, 2017
I love the job itself but every manager in every office I work in seems to be horrible. All the employees complain about poor management but we’re just stuck with it. They really don’t care about you as a person, you’re just a worker.
Pros
Pay, union, busy job, physical
Cons
Poor management, long work days, maybe one day off a week if you’re lucky

Greatest thing about the Job
Postal Clerk (Current Employee) –  Goldsboro, NCNovember 28, 2017
The best part about this job is that I get to smile all day and try to put a smile on the faces of everyone who walks in the door. I know that this isn't a common occurrence within the post office, which is why I pride myself on it.

Very hard job.
PSE Clerk (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 24, 2017
Very long shifts, expect to work not less than 10hr shift, they will give you a break or lunch whenever they decide to. Be ready to lift heavy boxes, move equipment and do some other things. You have to be physically very strong person to perform this type of work. Until you become permanent, which takes not less than 2-3 or even more yrs, you have to work every holiday and every weekend, no exceptions. Shifts could start as early as 4am. I personally think that they should hire just guys to do this kind of job, no women or girls suppose to lift heavy boxes.
Pros
None
Cons
Takes long time to become career permanent employee, you have to wait for someone to retire.

Postal Clerk (Current Employee) –  Olathe, KSNovember 24, 2017
They work you to death 6 days then one day off then you are so exhausted you sleep your entire day off. If you don't have children or a life this might be the job for you. Very physical on your feet entire 10-12 hour shift "regular" employees are very cut-throat and two faced and are not very willing to train or help a "PSE" with anything and will literally not do their job so you will have to stay late and do it and then complain to the union and get paid anyway
Pros
Pay is good but should be better for the work you do
Cons
no training, cut-throat employees, no advancement

USPS is an ever changing work environment. It is imperative that you are able to lift and move heavy packages and equipment. The hours are long and ever changing.

mostly fast paced and some slow periods
Postal clerk (Former Employee) –  Racine, WINovember 18, 2017
I liked the coworkers and hated upper management. Your boss will take it out on you cause his/hers bosses, bosses, boss yelled at him. They want to eliminate jobs left and right and they go by numbers and not by work volume.
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
No life, work hours ALWAYS change, Job security is not there

Only if you need money and have no good options
PSE Clerk (Former Employee) –  Westerville, OHNovember 18, 2017
They pay ok for the fact that they work you hard. If you dont catch on in 2 months they fire you. The management is a joke and act as if you are machine and not a person. Use your discretion when applying for a job.
Pros
pay, overtime
Cons
no work life balance
