I lasted two weeks I'll tell you why. It's like HAZING in college. You meet all ex service men & women that have done years moving around office to office. Instead of them liking you because you are there to give them days off- they basically swear at you at themselves all day, you throw boxes in bins all evening from 330 am to whenever a manager comes in. The workers talk so bad about each other and argue all day while you work like a dog. they don't train you on heavy equipment that you use but you find out quickly as you get scratches, cut, bruising and hurt. The post master was a great person but has a bad night crew here
Working for the Postal Service was an enjoyable time for me. I worked there 11 years until I had to leave to start a family. I respected my job, and my co-workers. It was was a great place to work. I also had job security, and excellent benefits.
My job at the postal service in Coppell was a fast paced and detailed position. The job was not particularly hard but it did require a period of normalcy in knowing how the system works and doing job as asked no more no less. Managers and supervisors are under a greet amount of pressure to get results. But as a PSE mail Processing Clerk, you are on a 360 day contract full time with good benefits your You may need to sign a new contract every year until you become a regular which may take 3 to 4 years.
As a carrier my route was about 10 miles a day six days a week. As a hiker it kept me in great shape. Yet the adverse weather conditions and the increase of packages the physical demand of the job takes a toll on your body. If you have a good postmaster/supervisor it helps a lot but most just don't care! I met a lot of good men and women when I worked there and that was a plus. what I learned from this is most companies don't care about there employees. It's sad that loyalty and hard work is one sided now days!
My office in Englewood Florida was extremely understaffed. Because I was a new non career employee, they allocated all difficult, backbreaking jobs to me. I had enough work for 3 fulltime employees. All employees were frustrated and angry. Many outbursts and screaming between managers and staff. Horrible work place
Typical work day was about 6 hours. Most weeks did not make 40 hours working 6 days a week. That's pathetic. Felt like I was treated like a dog. Did not like working 6 days a week and having to be at work by 3:00 am on a Sunday. Management was terrible. Well at least my manager was. There was very little communication, no direction or help if you needed it. If you could at least have two days off in a row per week maybe you could get the proper rest and let your body recuperate. Co-workers were really nice and that is about the only thing I will miss about the job. Sorry it didn't work out but I had to leave my feet were numb and in a lot of pain. Not a good place to work.
Terrible long hours a week, 3 Sundays out of a month. Only partime worked 6 out of 7 days. Very hostile employees management did nothing. Worked in Elkhart, Indiana. Took 6 months to get in to quit after 30 days. Horrible experience. Never go back
the postal service is a great job for people who are not lazy to work, being on your feet for 10 plus hours lifting heaving objects and working fast but accurate, it is a very easy job and you stay busy which makes the day or night go by fast. I loved working there its just the management sometimes does not communicate properly. overall one of the best jobs i have had.
I would work here again, everyone was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed my job, co workers and supervisor were wonderful to work with. I had to leave to have several surgeries, otherwise I would have stayed. Unfortunately I worked in a non career position and had no FMLA coverage to be able to retain my position.
The company is stuck doing the same old things constantly. Terrible management. Managers are regular workers who wind up in management because of physical disabilities. They get on to the employees for things that don’t matter. But never solve problems that actually matter. Pay is decent, but it’s a stressful environment. So it’s not for everyone! Smaller offices are not as stressful. This’s office is a little special Schedule always changes and they will be sketchy about it, if you don’t know the rulesThey have an issue with new ideas. Disorganized.
Manager were not professional, job very fast pace, lifting heavy mail all day at fast pace if not the manager is all over you, work 10 to 12 hrs everyday, manager dont care nothing about you. Only good thing is benefits
They hire anyone for management so in a lot Of cases the pse’s knew more than the supervisors. They baby the regulars and the pse’s do majority of the work. The rules, which seem like are made up on the spot, make no sense. They have the employees train which is a shame.
The manner in which the USPS elect personnel to occupy management positions leaves a lot to be desired; the cover up by upper management and HR is deplorable; the regular abuse by management toward employees they do not like as well as those who oppose the abuse is disgraceful.
