Unpleasant job experience
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Vernon, CT – December 11, 2018
If you don't know your way around a town, get ready to feel the pressure as there is little to no reference to city routes. A good sense of direction is a MUST, if not, you will be lost and wasting a lot of time to get your work done on time. The on the job learning process can be harsh. Very little co - workers were genuinely helpful, others will find a way to get under your skin.
Since I was behind and fighting to survive, I barely took breaks and never sat to eat an actual lunch, instead I just took protein shakes to drink on the go. Half hour (lunch break) is taken away from your actual worked hours, even if you didn't use it (unfortunately)
Expect supervisors to be unprofessional and call you out when you don't meet their expectations. They WILL talk down at you. Lack of respect and constant intimidation from management (excluding the Postmaster) was one of many factors that drew me away.
Sunday's were delivering Amazon packages. I wish those days were optional. It's a mess for the new ones and little to no help was given for you to succeed (At Manchester hub).
Schedule was given day by day, lack of professionalism, being called out in front of everybody in the office, not having the opportunity to have lunch
