Good Mail contractor
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJanuary 28, 2019
Doing this PT for a few years and seasonal for them and I must say they got a good offce crew now and communication is getting better. you get thanked and reconized at times. excellent wages and not far from my home or my other job. would be nice if they had a driver room probally would help on communicating. overall pretty satisfied.
Didn't like calling in for my schedule but texting is okay. Would rather have it out on the same day every week. Told they're working on that. Also they allow you to stop in or call whenever you need something someone there usually all night long I believe. so that is helpfull to us drivers and appreciated.
Pros
flex schedule
Cons
no driver room for communicating

Class A Driver
Class A driver (Former Employee) –  Bethpage, NYNovember 26, 2018
I’ve been here since MT transportation had the account with the mail. Drivers beware, bad equipment,
Bad management and bad dispatchers, you are asked to work over your hours but when your pay check comes it doesn’t match your hours of service.
You have to keep great stats on your hours and payroll,
This use to be the job to have and this company has made it the worst job on Long Island, drivers beware don’t trust anything that dispatchers say to you.
If I was in charge I would firer all of the dispatchers,
They know nothing about trucking, they couldn’t get a job at McDonald’s. So go somewhere else, you will thank me later, stay away and run away,

Experience Driver
Pros
US Mail

Management, dispatchers, equipment

Nice place to work
Driver (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJuly 22, 2018
Great company. easy work, don't have to lift any freight, just roll off carts on some routes. Family friendly company. They try to be accommodating if you need time off. Good pay and good benefits. pay is based on the contract with USPS but if they renegotiate contract periodically the pay goes up. They are good about fixing tractors if anything is wrong, you just have to tell them. They have bonuses and stuff for different things. They do care about their employees which makes it nice.
Pros
Benefits - 401K, Health ins, dental vision
Cons
company does not match contributions to 401 K

poor place to work
Lead Driver/ Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Commerce City, COMarch 20, 2017
I would not recommend this as a place for long term employment. It is not a worker friendly environment. It also has poor quality equipment both from the company and their cutomers.

Lots of promises, no delivery
Transportation Manager (Former Employee) –  Bethpage, NYJanuary 26, 2017
As a USPS contractor Area is always understaffed and you are told by upper management to lie to the customer. Responsibilities include getting deliveries out on time when you do not have the staff to cover the schedule.
Pros
No direct supervision
Cons

ease job,good pay
Semi Truck Driver deliving truck loads of mail (Current Employee) –  Harrisburg, PA I work out of cincinnati, ohJuly 30, 2014
Work times vary, be in truck signed in on computer & inspect truck. Be ready to leave on time. Give yourself time to do the job safely.
Management works good with the drivers, it takes a team effort to get the job done. I've seen no I in team.
Co-workers good people for the most part.
Hardest part driving in bad weather. not be home when you need to be for the family.
Most enjoyable part is dry roads, sunshine, a good radio & most of all no dispatcher calling .
Pros
good people to work for & with
Cons
driving over the road not being home a lot, bad truckstop food
