A day at work was always a good time. work place was ok not the best place. managrment was ok. Only seen or heard from them was when they needed me ask me to do what they wanted done aside of my regular duties that I had to do. their really wasn;t a hard part of my Job. Working together with my coworkers in the plant.
good benifits, good pay, paid uniforms. Retirement plans.
Working with people who had no clue of what they were doing. Managers included as well.
fast paced at first until you get to know your assignments
Career Letter Carrier (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – November 16, 2017
very fast paced place want you back on time no matter the situation. at some stations heavy work schedules around the holiday seasons. When you begin don't expect to have to much family time because when you first get started they will work you like a dog for the first couple of years. but that was in New York City other places may be different.
Customer service (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 16, 2017
Very fast paced, lots of mail to deliver to customers, customers were very pleasant to work for, worked a lot of over time during Holidays when I was finished with my route I would ask to help other carriers deliver their mail. The hardest part of the job was finishing work load with in 8 hours. the most enjoyable part was making sure customers were satisfied.
Postal Carrier (Current Employee) – Socorro, TX – November 16, 2017
Not a bad job if you like being by yourself most of the day. Very relaxed and easy to get into a routine, unless it is during the Holiday times, then it isn't very relaxing. Decent pay, decent people that work there, but you wont see much of them except during the morning pick up.
Mail Processing Clerk (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 15, 2017
No good leadership, not accountable for your actions, no praise or appreciation for hard work. No respect. No equality, favoritism, nepotism. No team work. Only thing good about the job is the pay and benefits. No advancement for good work. Supervisor never said thank you for your hard work.
Money$$ gainfully employed high security
Every thing.. Horrible management, no respect or appreciation.does not get recognized for your hard efforts
City Carrier Assistant (Current Employee) – New Jersey – November 15, 2017
Job is great but everything is based on seniority, not performance, so you literally just wait for people to leave or die before you're promoted. I am the type of person who works hard to follow an advancement path and the post office does not provide such a path.

City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Point Pleasant Beach, NJ – November 15, 2017
There are no longer career positions offered at the post office unless someone retired and you're next on the list to move up So 40hrs are not guaranteed to you one week you may work 40hrs the next you may only get 20hrs
Rural Carrier Associate (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 15, 2017
A day in the post office varies from day to day with the amount of mail and packages. Learning different routes and ways to prepare and deliver mail. The management has always been helpful and very understanding. The hardest part of being a mail man would be the different weather conditions. I enjoy meeting and interacting with different people on a daily bases.
