Great benefits, backwards management, unsteady work schedule.
Pros: pay, you can listen to music, you can wear what you want.
Cons: must appeal to managers, no rights, bad scheduling, micromanaging.
I worked at the USPS Remote Encoding Center for almost two years. I served two 90-day probation periods and received one promotion.
It's good that they pay slightly-above-average wages because any less money earned per hour would feel like slave wages.
At the REC, you cannot speak to anyone or be ten seconds late for anything. You must appeal personally to ALL managers or they will pick favorites and fire those who they don't like. Breaks must be precise. They watch and monitor everything you do and if your performance strays AT ALL there will be consequences. Summer time as a PSE gets you about 20 hours per week. Christmas time gets you about a 72-hour work week that is MANDATORY. You don't get any input on when they schedule you and they never shut down.
I've never been treated so poorly as an employee in my life. The Union is great, the pay is good (you get differentials) and after a probationary period, you can listen to music through your headphones.
Hands must be on your keyboard at all times. Communication devices must be turned off and out of sight.
The hardest part of the job is staying awake and being perfect.
