No promotion opportunities. Management makes you do all the work when they’re OIC of another office and don’t give you the title of OIC. Management lies and tells you that you can’t be an OIC In your own office. Town sent letters, mayor, city and chamber to make me stay and become postmaster. They didn’t care. Had to train postmaster. Postmaster doesn’t take the blame for his mistakes. Puts it off on you even if he was the one that did it. Postmaster never showed up but paid himself 40 hours a week why I did all the work including his job. No recognition and having to lie about putting mail up at 9:30 when I’m the only person there and I have 2500 letters and no DPS

I recently resigned the post office as CCA. I worked in a larger town probably around 180k or more people. I was normally working 10, some times 12 hours 6 days a week. 65-70 hr/week. Every holiday.

I wasn't there very long. The CCA's that had been there awhile were doing 7 days a week no time off. If you have family it is not for you. You will not see them.

I was told I was hired, I did the drug test passed, traded my truck and took out a loan to get a Honda CRV to diver mail in, got called to the office to sign some papers then got an email that I was not eligible for hire because I didn't mention a misdemeanor from 15yrs ago. So now I'm starting all over.
