Working for the Post Office is a Nightmare
CCA- City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Lanham, MD – February 17, 2018
I worked at the Post Office as a CCA for a few months, working for the United States Postal Services was one of my dreams, until I figured out what is the real life in the Post Office, technically CCA's have to be like "RAMBO", no time to eat no time for bathroom, rushing all the time, the supervisor called me every two hours asking me about my delivery progress, because she wanted me to finish ASAP and go to help others, long walking hours in the rain, snow, windy days, etc., when I first started my weigh was 248 pounds in less than three months I lost about 35 pounds, I got blisters on my feet because as I said I used to walk for about 8 hours every day, the paid is not bad, but as a CCA there are not benefits until you became a regular which probably takes for ever, because every station has CCA's that have been there for years waiting for an opportunity to became regulars and of course it goes by seniority, the cooworkers are very helpful, the management is the worst ever, I guess they need some kind of special training, I do not recommend this job to anyone but as I always say, "you have to try", if you don't try you won't ever know.
Good pay, helpul co-workers
Management, long working hours, no time for family
