Challenging type of work, demanding, alot of walking but I enjoy it.
City Carrier Assistant (Current Employee), Passaic NJAugust 20, 2014
Pros: meet alot of people, see alot of different parts of town
Cons: alot of walking, heavy lifting.
A typical day is sorting mail for the route by house address and street. Sorting large and small parcels for daily delivery as well. Checking the safety of the truck, making sure all the mail and parcels are safely stowed in the truck for the travel to the route.

Hardest part of the job is walking, 90% of the time you are walking up and down steps – more... and from house to house. Best part of the job is being OUTSIDE. love the outdoors. – less

Harder work that what it looks like
Letter Carrier (Former Employee), Paterson, NJAugust 20, 2014
Pros: pension
Cons: getting to the age to receive it without traumatic injury happening to you.
Sorting and setting up letters, small & large parcels, certified/registered/Express mail, forwarded customers and unknown customers or addresses for delivery to residences and business establishments along specified routes. This was done by walking and /or driving using satchels, carts and Postal vehicles (Jeeps, vans, ¾ ton, ½ ton trucks). There is – more... no route equality. All routes have from 200-650 stops and management expects them all to be done by 4pm regardless of mail volume- a difficult and dangerous demand especially to those who routes were extremely long, as mine was (621 stops). I had great co-workers who I laughed and cried with who are friends of mine to this day. The hardest part of the job was to have to deal with management consistently refuting you when you explained to them with letter volume, route length and consistent late times that you would not and could not be back on time unless you were given help. The most enjoyable part was dealing with the wonderful people on my route who became like family to me. They appreciated my work ethic and efforts. – less

Truck Unloader (Former Employee), New JerseyAugust 19, 2014
I enjoyed the short time I worked for the USPS distribution center. Off-loading trucks was a way of stress relief, it was tiring and physically exhausting but was good for the mind. Low stress environment except for when things got busy but even that wasn't much.

Vary harsh environment. Not very much fun.
City letter carrier (Former Employee), Henderson, NVAugust 19, 2014
Very Harsh Working environment. No recognition for providing good service, only for lack of service by management overall. I learned to be self proficient in all my duties, that my fellow co-workers could be trusted to do their jobs.

The enjoyable part of this job was customer interaction while performing my duties on the street.

Work every Saturday
Rural Carrier Associate (RCA) (Current Employee), Madison, ALAugust 18, 2014
Pros: high pay per hour
Cons: only 1 guaranteed work day (which is saturday), no benefits, on call everyday until 10:00 am.
If you enjoy being on call until 10:00 am everyday and like working every Saturday and now some Sundays, then go for it. If you need pay stability, then it might not be for you! It takes 5-6 years or more to be a regular full-time carrier.
