As a carrier in postal service we should to be ready to work 7 days a week more than 10 hours a day, some week we do not have a day off, some week we receive a phone call in our day off to go to work. Postal service is the most stress full place. The job is mostly psychical job. It's hard but at the same time is fun too. Few hours we are working in the office and few hours we are in street.
No home life with afternoon shift over time. Before full time position never had the same start time. And supervisor did not know how to schedule so worked alot of over time. Xmas time is 50+ hours a week There is alot of employees back stabbing going on.
Come hungry to work there alot of hours available big checks streeful at times but great place to work the days are easy at times and great co workers very friendly customer service and staff are very nice and willing to help u out they will give u their shirt off there if they need to be 💯💯💯💯💯💯
The Brooke road location is a mess. Several managers came and went the half of year I was there. If you can stomach it, take the pay and live with not having a life for a while then just do it as a last resort.
If you don't like to have a life and don't have family then this is the job for you. Its a very difficult environment to work in. You are expected to eat, breath, sleep the post office. Your days off are always taken away from you and most days you are there from sun rise to sun down.
Not sure how other offices worked but the management was horrible in my office. I was injured at work and they failed to follow through with my appointments and I was never able to get the surgery required.
Congratulations if you've been hired as a CCA. When your OJI tells you on the first day that the policy is hire 'em to fire em, believe it. Management expects new hires to work faster than the seasoned carriers. Many new hires are let go at any time during the 90 probationary period. Here's what you can expect - terrible training and management, no work/personal life balance, no advanced notice of days off or if you'll be working overtime. Zero positive feedback from supervisors. Poor communication about routes. You'll be told on a daily basis that you're not working hard enough. You'll be given a hard time for having to take bathroom breaks. No support from your union rep. Managers will yell, bully and threaten you regularly. Training does not prepare you for the job. You'll work harder than you've ever worked in your life in every type of weather condition only to be told you don't work hard enough. DO NOT WORK AS A CCA FOR USPS.
Some of the co-workers are helpful and encouraging.
So much time and money to train then they treat you like dirt when you start working. What business model does paid training for two weeks and then starves new employees out? I'm not sure, but the Lakewood office prescribes to this model. At my particular office, we're on call everyday but alot of us are getting less than 20 hours a week. They teach safety but supervisors demand speed over all else.
It's a job
On call, no benefits, no hours, ignorant management and supervisors, etc.
Terrible corruption from the top to bottom in this district. Station managers change clock rings steal wages and colluded to cover it up. They retaliate against carriers in the most vindictive manner. No concern for safety or wellbeing of workers.
Any delivery service is stressful. You will get a ton of mail and packages and expect to be done in 8 hours when it’s more. They say they will work with you if you have school or appointments but most likely won’t. Over worked and tired . Some people like it.
