  • In Colorado, at least 10 hour days. Great money but mentally and physically exhausting. You’re lucky if you get one day off in the work week.

  • Well, if you are applying to be a carrier, you will start out as a CCA. So be ready to follow a daily schedule, never knowing where you’ll be next or what time you’ll be starting. Also, be prepared for mandatory overtime. And lots of stress.

  • Walking with throbbing feet more than 8 hours. Always trying to make time but its never ending.

  • Micromanaged. You get to do your job and coworkers.

  • I worked for the Encoding center working graveyard shift. It’s constant typing and hard to stay awake but easy.

  • I work in Corporate Communications. I promote the new stamps. It’s exciting.

  • For a CCA come on clock on - report to supervisor foe assigned route it changes daily - get truck keys and any additional keys that may be needed for that route. Grab a scanner check you truck safety first. Walk to your route set up your scanner. Scan all packages out for delivery upwards of 75 parcels load truck in order of mail. Scan your route scan hot case scan clock to street scan clock out to route. Deliver mail rain sleet or snow finish early or late you will be expected to complete a pivot could be 1-3 hours back out in a different route or with packages

  • Come in, meeting, case, deliver till done then deliver more

  • Start early, hard hard, sent home for hours, come back and work hard again.

  • Working from the moment you arrive until you go on your route.Not quite as hectic on route.
