Casual Mail Handler (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – January 13, 2016
There's always something to do which I loved and my hard work didn't go unrecognized. What I learned was how to prioritize mail, not knowing how important certain mail was before. All of the permanents liked me including all supervisors. I enjoyed working over nights it was my first time ever doing this and I'd definitely do it again.
PSE Clerk (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – December 27, 2015
To work in the main plant of the Post Office is extremely labor intensive. you are expected to do more then one job at a time and make sure everything gets out on time. Mail and packages can weight up to 80 pounds and sometimes you have to life from the floor to higher than you head places.
3 breaks, plently of overtime
management is too scared of the union to do their job correctly

I loved working for the PO. Great benefits, security in the job and great pay. hard work but great pay. The job gets easier as time goes by. As long as you are willing to work, work is their for compensation.
Productive and fast pace place working with people
Mail Clerk (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – December 1, 2015
I loved doing my job because i was fast at mail sorting and shipp. and rec. I was also very strong at lifting. I had alot of fun around Christmas and the overtime. Could not believe how much mail really does come thriugh during Christmas. I learned alot on working with people and working together as a group and learning how fast to sort mail by zip codes. The hardest part of the Job was when there is alot of damaged mail during Christmas . Also the overtime. Had to always make sure u get alot of sleep because it will seem like u just left there because of so much overtime. But i liked it.
Hopefully access to easy transportation, such as car pool, easy access to busses and train.

Working Over night is nice because I get my whole day to relax and return to work the next night at 11p and I get paid really good money . The expectation of the company is to get the mail out to the customers
St. Louis County Department of Highways and Traffic and Public Works
Administrative Support (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 16, 2015
My review of working for St. Louis County has been a great experience, working with Right-of-Way Representatives, I have learned the process of condemnation and road widening projects, along with preparing court documentation, preparing updated informational brochure to give to the public when they are affected by a road project, in addition to working with various engineers, and I like the knowledge of asking questions and learning more about road projects and the street segments, when I'm out and I notice a particular road project I'm familiar with it, and I just like working with my co-workers as a team
Rural Carrier Assistant (Current Employee) – Ithaca, MI – November 13, 2015
The job is great. I love it. But the hardest part is you start out as a sub and have to wait till someone leaves to become a regular carrier. Most subs wait 10 or more years to become a regular. That also means while you are waiting you do not receive health benefits or retirement benefits.
I drove a fifteen foot box truck and delivered products to businesses and residential areas in a safe and timely manner. I learned to use a computer scanner and learned different parts of Cincinnati. Management and co-workers were fair. Being able to work outside was the most enjoyable part of the job.
