Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 28, 2016
A typical day consist of case and carry assign mail route. Throughout my twenty-eight years of service, I learned the importance of customer service and satisfaction. Also, throughout my twenty-eight years of service, I encounter various management styles. I encounter the Competent manager, Result only manager, Cheerleader manager and Name only manager. My co-workers was phenomenal. The hardest part of my job was delivering mail in the snow storms. The most enjoyable part of my job was the relationship that was developed with my customers and providing them with outstanding customer service.
Title - Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 28, 2016
The USPS provide job security, but a less desirable salary. The management of the USPS left a lot of room for improvement. Advancement came through friendships, rather than merit. The USPS does not open the door primarily, as indicated in its original vow; to hire veterans (first) returning from battle.

Success in the letter carrier position requires self discipline and the ability to handle a wide variety of issues such as customer service, extreme weather, and trouble shooting daily problems. Positive aspects of the job include working outdoors in Southern California and enjoying the relationships developed with customers . The daily sense of accomplishment is very rewarding.
Great place to work if you like dealing with stressful situations
CCA (city carrier assistant) (Former Employee) – Lapeer, MI – June 27, 2016
This job is NOT for the physically and mentally weak. They WILL work you like dogs and treat you like slaves. Don't get me wrong, if you're into that kind of work style, then this job is definitely for you. You will do more work than what you're getting paid to do, the hourly wage seems like a good deal until you actually work there for a while and see for yourself how underpaid you really are. If you are relying on this job to get by on your bills then you will be stuck their because you won't have the time or energy to look for any other job.
Work alone without constant supervision, work outside
Underpaid, stressful, no life outside of work, do others work that they can't finish.
City Carrier Assistant (Current Employee) – Norwalk, CT – June 27, 2016
terrible company to work for, don't have a care in the world for their employees only their mail, have cca's come in at a later time and expect them to get the job done at same time of a regular, management sucks as well as their communication.
Mail Processing Clerk (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 26, 2016
I worked very hard for this company for two years, making little to no mistakes in the two positions I held. I was promoted from working at the Salt Lake City Remote Encoding Center, and was transferred to the Salt Lake City Processing and Distribution Center to work as a Mail Processing Clerk. I was put on a 90 Day Probation after being promoted, and one of the rules is you're not allowed to call in sick, which is understandable. However, I was admitted to the hospital for one day for heat exhaustion, and my grandfather happened to die during the 90 day probation, causing me to miss a whopping two days for very serious reasons. I was fired by the corrupt management for being in the hospital, and for wanting to be with my family when my grandfather died. There have been other employees who have missed days for the same reasons (death in the family and hospitalization) and have not been fired during their 90 days. I had proper documentation for the hospital visit and would have provided a death certificate as well for my grandfather if they had even asked. I got along very well with my co workers, and a lot of the supervisors as well, but the "head honcho" decided he did not like me enough to overlook the fact that I was literally admitted to the hospital in order to not fire me. I worked up to 72 hours a week for this company, never left early, never was late, very rarely called in sick, and I was let go because of needing to miss two days for two very serious and separate reasons.This would be a great place to work if the management was re-arranged, and they could not pickmore... and choose based on who they liked the most rather than who did the best at their job.less
RCA Rural Carrier Associate (Current Employee) – Simi Valley, CA – June 26, 2016
stressful yet rewarding. Learning the process of the postal service has been very informative and exciting. Keeping the mail organized and delivered safely is crucial. Seeing happy customer getting their Amazon packages can be an awarding experience.
CASUAL MAIL HANDLER (Former Employee) – Hazelwood, MO – June 25, 2016
Good paying job. Hard on feet must stand for long periods of time on concrete. Break areas too far from work area which cuts into your rest time. Heavy lifting and scheduled 6 days per week. During holidays required to work 12 hour shifts leaving very little time for rest and recuperation.
Rural Mail Carrier (Former Employee) – Corona, CA – June 24, 2016
I really enjoyed working for USPS - i learned how to work quickly and accurately. i feel i worked well with my co-workers and enjoyed time off with some of them. i just loved my customers - i liked how they would wait for me outside near their mailboxes, sometimes just to say hello other times with a bottle of water. The heat of the mail truck was the worst.
