The post office has helped me with making a lot of money. I loved working for the holidays, I made most of my money there as a Casual Mail Handler Assistant (MHA). You're required to work 6 days a week even holidays. The job is pretty physical (plant operation) but, the money is worth it. Wishing to work back there again.
Very unprofessional especially on tour 1 from the management down very Ghetto!! Would recommend any another building, no outside life at all. The supervisors want you to practically bend them over in order for you to keep your job. Pay rate is average until you become a regular. I’m looking for something better without the hassle and headache.
Depending on where you work management can be a headache, but as long as you get the work done then you’ll be alright. Don’t listen to some of the workers if you have questions ask the supervisor because some workers have bad interest in you or either jealous of you.
Came in has a seasonal MHA. Only stayed long enough to pick up my physical check has I found out the job wasn't for me by my 1st week. When I first got the job I was excited to get a gov job and figured I would work hard to get a chance at a full time schedule. Within my first week I had already started planning my exit strategy due to what I saw. This facility is very large and each area looks exactly the same so it can make it very difficult to navigate and supervisors will expect you to know where you are going.This warehouse wasn't in too bad a shape, but was very dirty given that it was a federal building. Because of it's size there were several break rooms throughout the facility, some with/without fridges. The common denominator they had was that they either had broken water fountains or water fountain that barely worked and all had makeshift tables. During my first day I was told that my supervisor was "strict" and was told by my coworkers that he had a tendency to call you names and micromanage and was told "not to take it personally". Has soon has I heard this it set off some red flags and didn't really like that a federal agency's motto was " too not take it personal" and "get over it".Once I started working loading trucks I thought the job was pretty easy, until I had a 2nd supervisor midway through my shift who would assign me to dispatch containers of mail. While the premise of this job was as simple has pulling out a full container of mail and replacing it with a new one, it was very complicated due to the amount of papers you would have to print and tape to it. - több...
45 minute lunch, benefits
Lazy coworkers, nonconsecutive days off, made to work on holidays, rude/useless managment, complicated/overwhelming work
I was a non career mail handler. It takes 2 years or more to get to a career position with real benefits & better treatment. Supervisors treat you like your nothing. They won't tell you your working overtime for the day until your shift literally ends so never plan anything outside of work. Took them a week after my start date to get my badge to get into the facility & clock in but all other employees who started with me had theirs from day 1. After resigning they kept putting off giving me my final check like I didn't work for it. Finally got it a week and half after everyone else got paid.
Work-life balance12 hour days 6 and 7 days a week. You can work 12 to 40 days in a row without a day off. You will work Every holiday. Before and after your shift overtime ( you never know until last minute) You don't know your schedule until the week before so forget about making plans!
First glance, you see everybody working hard on each task, helping one another regardless if you were new or old. Every second mattered while you were there whether it was clocking in, how long you were on lunch or how long you were on on the machines. A big thing that was put into the worker's heads was that we were a family, i.e. if one of us messes up we all mess up. This was easy to see as if one group or person is a little slow on what they are doing or makes a honest mistake it affected the productivity as a whole. Overall within the workplace everyone was different, some supervisors were strict and stern, some were fun and playful, some were a mix of both. Yet they all have the same goal in mind in making sure workers are doing their jobs safely and efficiently so that the mail can get to where it needs. Hardest part of the job really was staying awake as everybody was working 12 hour shifts. This made the most enjoyable part of the job whenever you can any slight break you could whether it be machine slowed down, or waiting for more trucks to come in, you took any second of relaxation you could.
Worked there seasonal. 10-12 hrs 5-6 days aweek. Or no days off. Handling mail , sorting it by each zipcode. No being bugged by the manager or having someone rush you. Work at your own paced. Some people are aggressive but continue to do your job the best way you can at your ability and youll do fine.
Not much free time. Very smothering
You get paid well for the work here considering most of the jobs here are entry level though as others stated in past reviews it is really sink or swim environment here even though the jobs are entry level. Be prepared to watch the regulars do the work and ask lots of questions because no supervisors or leads will train you properly how to do the work. Be also prepared to not have a life. There is no work life balance here at the post office. It is either the post office or not. Depending on your craft you will most likely be doing 6 days 10 or 12 hour shifts. The pay is great and you will get some benefits even as non career but be prepared that converting to a regular may take years to do. So if you are an MPA, MHA or whatever you are never guaranteed hours and they can let you go anytime they wish. If you want a career at USPS you are going to have to make some sacrifices and try to make regular. I honestly don't see myself here for more than a year as I do want a more work/life balance. If you are still on the fence I recommend coming in as a casual and see the work then come back as a non career if you really want to pursue.
Pay and benefits
No work life balance.
Worked for almost 2 years here. I wasn’t paid for the first 3 months, along with many new hires at the time because they “couldn’t input us into the system”. Management is horrible and always racially biased, sexist and self-serving. When you are new, they know you don’t fully understand your union rights and will take advantage as much as possible of your ignorance. With parents and extended family having spent their lifetimes working for USPS, I understood it was hard work and you will need to be at war with supervisors much of the time. They are especially tough on you if you aren’t regular, which can take a few months or 6+ years. Shifts were always changing dramatically, sometimes I got off at 3pm or 4am. Management did not care when employees had children to look after. They also change your work location all the time. I never considered myself a hateful person and very much enjoyed the actual hard physical work, but quit after realizing how full of anger, stress, revenge and resentment i felt towards my supervisors and the USPS system. I would never work there again.
All of it.
I was so happy USPS call me for interview in Brooklyn ford bell . One lady call us and told us to seat then start to scream and yelling at us. I am from hr , one guy that took the wrong seat told him I will ask to leave if you don’t comply . She started to thrown us information how to fill the form so fast that we can’t keep up . Worst then military. The funny thing is that is that didn’t want to believe at the rewiew but know I do. Ran fast away while you can
Lot of hours
You basically start out working as a temp. The regular employees constantly take off and you are there to cover them. Managers favor certain people. No benefits. No sanitizing anything even while people are contacting covid. Working long hours with one day off at a low pay rate. Work every holiday and every weekend. Working ergonomically doesn't happen and there are dangerous set ups resulting in injuries. No training on anything! Last break is not allowed till all work is complete.
Decent pay not a terrible place to work depending on your lifestyle. Short lunches and breaks ..hours suck starting out ..good benefits a good place to work if you have a family to take care of but hours may conflict with family time
Hours bad equipment questionable mgmt
Theyll take 2 years to make you a regular employee and then ship you off to another location across town for 8 months and then try to ship you right back!
Money, benefits, OT bonuses
Disrespect, seniority system, horrible management
Easy job but back breaking work. Long hours (6 days a week 12 hr shifts). Short breaks. Management was terrible. Work culture was decent. People who worked there made it fun at times. Ok pay. Time and a half after 8 hours everyday for MHA.
