Mail Carrier in Ashburn, VA
on February 24, 2019
As a carrier in postal service we should to be ready to work 7 days a week more than 10 hours a day, some week we do not have a day off, some week we receive a phone call in our day off to go to work. Postal service is the most stress full place. The job is mostly psychical job. It's hard but at the same time is fun too. Few hours we are working in the office and few hours we are in street.

Window clerk/ Distribution Service in Arlington, VA
on October 19, 2021
I work in a Post Office that has way to many people who do not want to work. The older staff who are close to retirement are calling out every week, which puts us all in a bind if we need people to cover the window and distribution. The work is repetitive. The pay needs to be more for clerks since we put up with a lot between management and customers. This job is decent when you have a good crew to work with, but if you don't, it's a nightmare.
United States Postal Service City Carrier in Whittier, CA

CCA- City Carrier Assistant in Pennsylvania
on October 18, 2021
As a city mail carrier, especially in the beginning as a cca, prepare for long days (12 or more hours) and little to no days off. It is a very physically demanding job, prepare to walk at least 10 miles a day while carrying heavy mail and packages. The paychecks are great especially with the amount of overtime you will get. Benefits in the beginning aren't great but once you get transitioned from cca to regular, the benefits and retirement are great.

I thought you had to pass the in-person proctor test with a 70%? And if you did pass the test, does it take a while before you hear any other instructions?
