usps is the worst employer ever
Rural Mail Carrier (Former Employee), Chandler, AZJuly 19, 2014
They expect you to be available at their convienence when the "claim" they call you. If you are not available in a hour or do not answer the phone call they will fire you. The probation period is 1 year and as a mail carrier you work 1 day per week. Who can afford to live on that???

Classic Factory Work
Operations & Customer Service (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 19, 2014
The challenge is working with a huge dysfunctional family in a large plant setting. It has it moments of fun, and many moments of diplomatic creativity. The issue is, it no longer fills any sense of challenge. I am eager to move into an optimistic, progressive environment. I want to put my talents to use in an optimistic, future envisioning position.

Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee), Omaha, NEJuly 19, 2014
the hardest part of this position, for which I can only testify to my particular station, the isolation from the rest of the crew. everyone is given a route to do, and is expected to do it without incident. regardless of training or experience. Management has their own way of doing things, which seem disconnected from the ground crew, and was usually – more... unhelpful and inefficient. – less

Great place to work and retire from.
Bulk Mail Technician (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits and pay
Cons: having to some week-ends, (mandatory)
A typical day at work was dealing with the public in a customer service setting.

I learned how to listen and be patient.

My co-workers all worked together for one common goal. Customer satisfaction.

The hardest part of the job was inclement weather because of sometimes having to work on a dock.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new – more... people and helping them prepare their mailings. – less

RCA (Current Employee), Unionville, VAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: high paying job and i work with a great group of people.
Cons: only part-time so i recieve no benefits at this time.
Time goes by very fast because it's actually a fun job. Having employees that get along so well helps too. A typical day includes unloading flats, letters, and parcels to the right areas then sorting. The carriers case the mail and deliver to the correct addresses.

Mail Handler (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJuly 17, 2014
The best part about working at USPS for me was the ability to work overtime often. The co-workers were great also but it depends on the shift in which one works as well. I had no problem on either shift.

Hostile work environment
On the Job Instructor (Former Employee), Springfield, MAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: good pay. decent benefits
Cons: hypocritical safety culture. abusive management. very hostile work environment.
Most abusive management culture I've ever endured. Safety procedures and standards are only used to discipline employees. Nothing changes until somebody is seriously injured. Management double standard on zero tolerance policy. Applies it only to bargaining unit employees-never to management.

Money Well Earned.
City Carrier Assistant (CCA) (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEJuly 16, 2014
Pros: exercise and pay.
Cons: wear and tear on body and walking in inclement weather.
Carried heavy bags on our shoulders in inclement weather conditions. Sorted and cased mail. Did basic route maintenance such as hold orders, forwards and change of addresses. I learned how to manage my time and get the mail out to the right person at the correct address. Management was not always friendly and did not care about their employees. My co-workers – more... were very friendly and helpful. Many of them worked hard and got their jobs done on time. Hardest part was learning different routes almost every day. The most enjoyable part of the job to me was meeting new customers and being out doors. – less

Letter Carrier (Former Employee), Altoona, PAJuly 16, 2014
The USPS is a great company to work for. Although be prepared for high work loads and lots of walking. Starting out time off is not something you will having a lot of. 60+ hours a week are normal for beginning letter carriers. Although the pay does justify most of your concerns.
