Mail Clerk (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 24, 2016
Great place to work and provide great customer service to clients. I work day for me started around 6 am in the morning. I would be the first to arrive so I was the tam member that came in and st the pace for the rest of the staff for the day. I learned how the government works and what it take to please your supervisors as well as the community. Management was more hands off, which I loved as long as you knew your expectations and performed. Co-workers, some worked just as hard as you, some did not. Some were long term, and some were not, with that approach. The hardest part was management having a difficult time making sure everything was communicated effectively and everyone on the same page. The happiest part of the job, was knowing that you save someone from losing their home are their hard earned possessions or property.
Management could get too micro manage and only care for production instead of being people oriented. Customer service is not their priority but making their numbers. Coworkers are hard worker but afraid of management and losing their job.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that we could make a difference in people's lives, and that is satisfaction enough.
stable good pay.
not people oriented. allow managemnt to oppressed and abused workers

There is not really such thing as a typical day when you're working outdoors. As a river ranger I patrolled the river 3 days out of the week and did maintenance the remainder 2 days. It is a wonderful organization to work for seasonally.
