Rural Letter Carrier (Former Employee), Columbus, MSDecember 23, 2014
Pros: good salary, they finance your gas, and you work on your own time. you determine when you get off
Cons: you have to start off part-time, it could be years until you get a full-time position, they don't have good healthcare and benefits for part-time workers, and you put a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle
I enjoyed everyday working for USPS. I learned a lot about organizing and delivering mail. Management was very wonderful. They weren't scrict and they were very understanding. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful. We were all a team. The hardest part of my job was learning a new route and completing it in great time. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was working on my own time and working without much supervision over me. I also enjoyed learning new areas of the city. – less

great job security with little motivation for advancement
Sales and Services Distribution Associate (Current Employee), Evansville, INDecember 23, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: working saturdays, mismanaged
There are very few, if any, jobs that are more secure without any requirement of a college degree than the post office. With that said the company is unionized and struggles to recognize hard work. It also lacks real upward mobility for those who are most qualified.

Pros: good income

A typical work day is sort, case and deliver mail and packages as well as accountable mail. I like delivering the mail, you around your co workers for awhile then you work on your own. You get to meet new and interesting people.

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHDecember 22, 2014
This position required you to be on your feet approximately 8 hours and day. My position as a customer service associate gave me the opportunity to work with and meet a diverse group of individuals. I had to greet and address customers in a friendly and professional manner. Clear communication skills and time management was a must. The main objective – more... was to improve customer service and the ability to multi-task. – less

Hot, Relatively Hard Work-Loved It
Casual Mail Carrier (Former Employee), Palm Springs, CADecember 20, 2014
Pros: working outdoors. very physical.

Days were long. Generally, 12-13 hours daily, 6 days a week. Worked on Sundays to deliver Overnight (1 day service) mail.

Learned about every part of Palm Springs, CA.

Too many Supervisors, including acting. Lack of communication amongst themselves which made it difficult for employees.

Co-workers, for the most part, were great. Very helpful!

Mail – more... delivery in the Summertime, Very hot. Very long hours made for exhausting days.

City Carrier Assistant I (Former Employee), Hobart, INDecember 20, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: job is demanding
This job is hard but you are paid well with good benefits. Once you leave the classroom training, you may or may not have someone on the job to train you. I would advise you to apply for the job in the work area where you are familiar with the streets because the route you are given is how they expect you to deliver the mail. If you are not familiar – more... with the streets you will delay the time in delivering mail. GPS won't help!

Also don't look for a lot of help from management. – less

Proud place to work and to advance in all aspects of mail processing.
Retail Specialist (Former Employee), Columbia, SCDecember 20, 2014
Pros: retirement and great savings and health plans.
I learned various aspects of mail procedures, even as a local Postmaster for a few months.

I enjoyed opening up new contract units and seeing them become a part of the community.

I developed a good relationship with my coworkers at a district level and Postmasters/station managers all over the State of SC.

Under the direction of the Marketing Manager, – more... I was able to detail in to short assignments which expanded my knowledge of the Postal Service.

My most learning and enjoyable assignment was in Washington, DC working for Headquarters. – less

The Post Office job is fine. It's management that makes it bad.
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee), San Ramon, CADecember 19, 2014
Pros: lunch and breaks at your own time
Cons: you may not get a break. postmaster or supervisor may set you up to quit
I was a Carrier Assistant. I loved that you get to work alone with no one to bother you. I didn't like the pressure they put on the new employees stressing them out about TIME and how long it SHOULD take to deliver mail. The expectations weren't realistic. I had a postmaster actually bully me. He followed me around more than I think he should. He was – more... being nit picky about things that really didn't matter. I did NOT enjoy that! If I was able to transfer or work under someone else, I think I'd still be there. The pay was good. I didn't like the fact that if you're not scheduled to work, you wouldn't know until you got there. The postmaster and/or supervisor may set you up to fail. Your first evaluation will be unsatisfactory. They don't care how much you are doing your best. It still won't be good enough for them. – less

Well paying job, but too short lived...
Mailhandler (Former Employee), Honolulu, HIDecember 16, 2014
Pros: good starting off pay.
Cons: for me wasn't fulfilling as it was seasonal position only for less than 2 months.
Straightforward work that wasn't at all difficult. Repetitive work in a noisy environment; your typical production type duties and work setting.

Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), Roanoke, VADecember 16, 2014
Pros: great pay and pay raises everytime cost of living increased
Cons: was scheduled for double shifts for christmas holidays and also worked holidays
All I did through this job was data entry. I really enjoyed this job. This was my first job right out of high school. I worked with my best friend here. This is where I started picking up my speed in typing. I could sit back and key and listen to books on tape or the radio.
