First and foremost, you have to be thick skinned. The majority of management could care less about you. There are exceptions to the rule, but they are far and in between. At large city plants, night time shifts always get overtime announcements. There are a lot of people that do not work, and the ones that do, are ridden pretty hard with almost zero appreciation. I have only worked with three management members that are worth working hard for. The rest are just immature adults who are on a power trip. The work is rough on your body, but is easy enough. The money is incredible for how easy the work is. There are awesome people at the plant, but you have to be careful what you tell anyone. All in all, if you keep your head down and just work, its not a bad job.
Pros
compensation
Cons
90% of management, childish adults, poor organization

These people treat you like garbage! I always thought the PO was a good place to work until I got hired. Many supervisors act as if the PO is an extension of their military service. Although if they loved the military that much why didn’t they stay enlisted until retirement....? They run you like a wild chicken, talk crazy to you, EXTREMELY disorganized (internally), everybody got a nasty attitude, and it’s literally just like high school (USPOHS - United States Post Office High School). I was glad for the money. I definitely worked for every dime, but I have no desire to ever work at the PO again. Good Luck!
Pros
Searching..
Cons
Disorganized, dirty bathroom/lunchrooms, ok pay, no benefits, incompetent supervisors/managers, people screaming incoherent announcements over speaker, etc., etc.., etc.

The United States Postal Service does have a structure to which one moves forward securely. However, the culture is first in, first considered, veterans preferred. Also, time constraints hold you to the position you hate most long before you can advance.
Pros
Safe pay, benefits, and once you're in, you're privy to any job you wish to move forward to that the public never has knowledge of.
Cons
Vague and fickle employment offerings, never an opening at a location near you, any job you wish to advance to requires no less than 2 years prior experience or a 4 year degree, asking for help or guidance feels very impersonal, no way to work and enjoy your earnings

I am very proud of being a city carrier. The pay and benefits are the best, especially for a family with children. I love the outdoors and work on your own at a steady pace

Hot weather, rain, and cold

I sort mail daily and input data for mail carriers to deliver. Working for USPS was a good everyday job. During the holidays the post office get overwhelmed with packages and cards.

No people skills shown by management. Slow to react to safety concerns. Schedules are very demanding with little or no concern for family and meeting a wide range of safety issues across all tours. More evident on the off tours.
Pros
Does offer some security.
Cons
working conditions are sub par.

This is a bs company who gets away with a lot from S. Harassment to fraud/forgery at the workplace. I hated it and it is the worst place I’ve ever worked! Money is good but you deal with a lot that management covers up and get away with.

Management totally sucks here, they don’t respect you as a human being, they talk at you and like a child. Intimidation is rampant. No structure. No professionalism. Positive changes fall on deaf ears. I was displaced out of my position possibly due to retaliation from reporting manager.
