Very messy place to work from the entry level employees all the way up to the plant managers. A bunch of perverts and bitter old people. I only stayed so long because the pay was great. Management is horrible. The "regular" employees are lazy and get mad at you for having work ethics.
The post office is one of those companies that you really just have to work for to fully understand what goes on; it's too hard to explain otherwise. Nevertheless, it's an interesting place to work for indeed...
I hate this place. It eff-ing sucks. On three occasions supervisors have stolen time from me and you are basically powerless to stop it. EVEN IF YOU HAVE PROOF. I totally understand why people GO POSTAL! Whatever you do, don't come here! You've been warned...
Be ready to give your life away! They treat you bad and want you to work 6 days a week 10 hour days NO EXCEPTIONS ! Also force you to work machines that require a minimum of two ppl by yourself then rush you get done before the next shift meaning you literally need to be in two places at once to finish on time ! And your prize for finishing your work on time and working by yourself is being forced to work 2 extra hours overtime even tho you just broke your back making sure the work was finished on time
Hard work, demanding, long days,work efficiency, Managers have you to assist where needed within your specific office assigned. Be patient, it does take several months to get hired and it may not be where you chose, but accept to get your "foot in the door."
There is always work available. The best benefits and upward mobility. You can transfer anywhere in the country. Several training courses are provided to assist you with improving your knowledge and skills.
The USPS is a huge conglomerate with many different departments, such as medical, legal, etc. and not just the mail. If an applicant comes in as a non career worker, it could be rough. Coming in as a career employee could be more rewarding.
It’s very important that you pay attention to all your work surroundings because this is a very noisy work place..you should keep plenty water and stay energized..this is a very physical kind of job that requires you to work at a sorta fast pace
One of the biggest benefits of working at the post office is that you get the USPS employee health insurance. The USPS is part of the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program and takes care of 2/3 of the health insurance premiums for its employees and retirees.
I would like to express how I really enjoy people and in my line of work how honored I am to be of assistance in anyway possible to satisfy the customer. I to am always pleased with Excelent customer service with my everyday life experiences. Great customer service definitely makes the world and work environment better place .
This job has a great system and pays well. I would advise working for the Usps only if there are no disabilities involved because they will not reasonably accommodate you unless you have been there for years.
