Pros: great pay, great benefits, used to have great perks, rewards. these have been eliminated now.
Cons: Short breaks, lots of pressure, stress.
Each day I would report to work. I had to sort each piece of mail and case it according to where each family lived/was entered on my case.
Upon completion, I then had to pull down the mail and tray it in preparation for delivery. Any/all packages to be delivered also had to be sorted in order of route delivery and along with the mail placed in my LLV (postal delivery truck).
I then had approx. 3-4 hours to drive my 32 mile route consisting of 560 families, delivering their mail accurately each day.
At the end of my day, I returned to the office and then put up any mail that had come in for the next day.
I was also responsible for any customers requests, i.e. forwarding, holding, etc.
Some managers worked well with the employees; others treated us like we were not important. Overall, we managed to work well together. Some fellow carriers tried to "take over"...but they were all on the same level position as the rest of us. Management usually kept them in line.
