As a paper route carrier it was a great part time job to have while having a full time job. Good compensation with flexible hours.

WP offered good benefits and decent pay, enjoyed working with the people there. The commute was rather stressful.It is a hybrid position with some room for growth.

Working at the Post starts out great. The Post offers really great benefits and fair compensation at first. And overall, the culture is excellent. Everyone is very respectful and welcoming, and its very friendly.The typical workday is a fair workday. I always felt like I was provided with every resource I needed to do my job. If there was a specific software or service I needed, I was able to get it.Unfortunately, there didnt seem to be any notable path to progression there. Raises were almost never talked about, and it seemed like the more assured way to increase one's salary was to go somewhere else. And after working for a few years, it seemed difficult to get an increase with respect to one's seniority.
