LETTER CARRIER/SALES AND SERVICE ASSOCIATE in Anthony and Kingman, KS
3.0
on December 18, 2018
It was a good job to have in a small community.
Prepare (case) mail for delivery. Deliver mail on a timely basis.
My original manager was excellent, he knew what was going on at all times. He left the office and checked on you, he also made every effort to make employees feel appreciated. He had done the job, he knew that it wasn't always pleasant lugging that mail satchel around in rain, sleet, hail or snow.

The last manager I had, never left the office. She managed by reading emails from headquarters. I have an excellent work ethic, I don't feel the company I work for owes me anything that I don't earn.

The hardest part of the job as a carrier was probably delivering in deep snow, it was very taxing.

The most enjoyable part was when it was sunny and 75, no better job to have.

Delivery Driver Job in Naples, FL

Ruthless, no break and still have to take 30 minutes off the clock
You will work 15+ hour shifts non stop on a truck that smells like fecal matter from everyone sweating on it. It gets hot in there. There is a insane amount of packages, mail to organize and deliver.
Everyday you have a new route so organizing mail is stressful for about 7 hours until you finish and get out on the road for another 7 hours.

When management try to send you help, the help will show up and barely help. Once the season is over, Management will not need you in their unorganized methods or running a business. Make 1 mistake and you are fired.

Everyone cries to their UNION.

No
Work-life balance
No life. Work nonstop.


Overall

Barely any days off. Can be sent to multiple locations to work. Good job if you don't have family or a life. If you like spending time with your family then go for it.

Long and demanding work hours. Slave work with no balance.
I was a city carrier assistant and it was ok at first. Very demanding and not enough pay for everything that we would do. Working a job that expects you to do the work of 2 people. Lucky if you get a day off and most supervisors are cold and treat you like dirt. On the outside it looks like a great job. Once you're on the inside you will have no life and be their slave.

The question base and the work surounding

Shared on January 22, 2019

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?
