Am currently an RCA seriously looking into other job options. Anyone who takes this job hopefully has a jeep or large vehicle. Packages and mail are unbelievable! You also need to be super organized to do this job! Also out in all kinds of weather! They try to tell you to be safe, but what they really care about is that you get all mail and packages delivered.

I left my job at the post office because I was moving to another state. Tried to transfer, but every post office only wanted PSE clerks and wouldn't allow me to start over from PSE position and work my way back up. this needs to be changed. People want to be able to transfer their jobs and not have to worry about losing their jobs because companies want new hires that their going to let go after the holidays.

I got too personal with coworkers and managers. Drama and Gossip ensued, which turned into a toxic work environment. Just do your job and what you are told. Stay professional with everyone.

Was separated before my 90 days with no reasonable explanation. Was scheduled the whole week and was told 3 weeks before Christmas that I was no longer needed. It put my family and my children in a very difficult spot financially. Don't work for this organization.

I left for a full time position elsewhere. After being a rca for a year i thought the job was mine after the career carrier quit. I was wrong, I was supposed to wait for 2 weeks to see if a career employee bid for it and if someone did, they would get it over me. So I chose to make the more secure choice for myself and my kids and go with a guaranteed full time job

I was a PSE Clerk, left my job, because it was physically hard for me to lift heavy boxes and move equipment around, very long shifts. Was expected to work every single holiday and every weekend-Saturday and Sunday.
