us postal clerk (Current Employee), Seligman, MOJuly 28, 2014
Pros: decent pay.kimi
Cons: work alot off the clock
This job is very demanding. That is ok but there is very little training for the job and you donate a lot of your own time. They really need to set up better training for their employees who are to be in charge of a post office. Otherwise I enjoy the job.

Plenty of work to keep you busy throughout the day. Must be in good shape to upkeep the high demand of physical work that's required. Awesome potential for growth after a year's contracting work.

Quick Pace
Mail Carrier (Former Employee), Lincoln Park, ILJuly 26, 2014
On a regular work day,you would come in at 8 am. Case up your route. Retrieve any parcels for this route, tie your route out and head for the street. Working here teaches you great oral skills, patience, and once working for so long you learn how to work smart. Management was not the best but everyone had a job that needed to be completed and they did – more... their best with the tools they had. My co-workers probably made this work place a little more easier for me. Most of them were helpful and easy to talk to about certain task at work. – less

New Breed Mail Sorter (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: multitasking
Cons: short breaks, steel toe shoes
A typical day at work was fast paced yet fun. I learned how to sort mail, handle mail, distribute mail and/or how there are different departments the require certain things in order to be submitted through mail or declined and returned to sender! Management was great they were very alert and attentive. My co workers were really balanced in the aspect – more... that there were little to no room for error. The hardest part of the job was that I chose third shift and you had to wear steel toe shoes which were hard on the feet and back after 8 long hours. The most enjoyable part was that the work was simple and I gain alot of trusting friendships afterwards. – less

Long hours and no benefits.
Clerk/Carrier (Current Employee), Webster, TXJuly 23, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: benefits, hours, environment
Im considered a full time employee but we are in whats called a freeze. If you were hired while the freeze was in place your benefits and job promotions are too. So no room for promotion or raise until the freeze is gone. Every route is considered 8 hours. I do my route plus sometimes half of another in 8 hours. Ill be the only one doing it too. As – more... of now i havent had a day off in 2 month because they look at why pay someone who makes more money overtime, when we can pay someone 17/hr to do it. – less

Pros: excellent pay and benefits

Work/life balance is non-existent. It is worse now as many employees are required to work 7 days a week.

Constant talk of offices being closed and your job being eliminated.

Great Pay and many hours to work.
Mail Handler Assistant (Former Employee), El Paso, TexasJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great pay, long hours, helpful co-workers
Cons: no time off rarely, bad management, horrible home life.
If you like to work and want to have no life at home whatsoever then you'll like this job. It really just depends on what position you have and in what area you live in. I worked in El Paso, Texas and was working 12 hours everyday with 4 days off in a month. Management is the worst, because they have no interaction with each other and it's just dog – more... eat dog. I'm sure this isn't the case in every location I'm sure. If you can just do your job and work hard you'll be fine. – less

Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee), Wappingers Falls, NYJuly 22, 2014
Pros: finish early you go home and be paid the lotted time for route
Cons: bad weather, no benefits, and have to wait for a route to open to be perm.
A typical day is rack all the morning mail for the route you are doing.Then load the postal truck and deliver the mail. When coming back rack the afternoon mail and go home.I have learned to be a safer driver and time management. My co-workers keep to them selves. The management don't bother you and let you do your work. The hardest part of the job – more... is driving in bad weather. The enjoyable part of the job is meeting the people you deliver to. – less
