No sick days or vacation. Management sucks and cares nothing about your life or kids. 12 hr work days. Work every holiday and weekend. Don’t care about your safety. Trucks are not safe they wait until an accident happens to fix any known problems. You can get into an accident and the first then they do is take a pic of your shoes and say “ Well that wouldn’t have happened if you had the right shoes on.
The job is not hard and it is great exercise and the pay is ok. If you have kids this is not the job for you , management and the supervisors are horrible and they make unreal expectations. If you are a good carrier they will overwork you and then complain about everything. They expect you to put this job over everything else in your life . Until they change their horrible culture and how they treat their workers I wouldnt recommend it to lno 1.
This is a great opportunity for job security and different insurance packages. The environment within however, is beyond anything ever experienced. If you are not ready to be around adults still conducting themselves as high schoolers DO NOT apply. The culture is degrading and the unions are absolutely worthless.
The hours you get will always be crazy ,,, overnight ,, the hours are really late ,, May start 3 am , or 4 am ,, or maybe 7 pm till 3am ,, the hours there at the plant mess up your sleep format ,, the the only thing ,, it’s crazy hours
I worked at the South Bergen , Jersey City location!! Management sucks, the most rude nastiest attitudes. The pay is good, but no set hours. You may get 40 hoists a week you might get 25. No worth the money paid.
Pretty good pay
No set hours, the packages outweighed the mail. And on Sunday delivering the packages were heavy and unorganized.
Its a great opportunity to learn the equipment and different positions. The work is not hard in terms of understanding. There's adequate break times. Its an awesome job especially if you are a regular .
Only thing negative I have to say about the post office is the pay REALLY sucks.. As a TTO (Tractor Trailer Operator) you have to wait 10yrs to make 60k a yr, based on a 40hr work week.. They rather give the work to contractors ,rather than employees! Management & staff are awesome.. Great place to work if you can wait 10 yrs to make a decent living..
Management They’ll any one... Because The Management is Based a lot on Favoritism. They’re Brainwashed and They will try to work you to death and not pay you your annual leave time or sick time. The Post Office Constantly breaks Labor Laws During Holidays they’ll Try To Work you 11- 14 Days Straight at least which is against any labor Laws.. Before you work at USPS your better working at Transit..
Management DEFINITELY SUCKS! They expect you to put the mail before your children, they give you a hard time for accommodations if you have young children or child. This place is for people who just want to settle for disrespect
From my experience as a Postal Support Employee (PSE) I was constantly challenged to go beyond my limits to complete my tasks. All Postal Support Employees have to start off their careers as seasonal workers and work throughout the holiday before they can become permanent workers at the mail processing plants they were assigned to. The best part about this job is the hourly pay, and high is honestly why I never buckled under pressure and resigned. The worst part about the job is that if aren’t both physically and mentally prepared for a day at the plant, you’ll find yourself in pain and suffering from EXTREME amounts of exhaustion (my first day at the job in a nutshell),overall affecting your work efficiency. I highly recommend buying and wearing proper footwear along with shoe insoles as well as getting as much REST as you possibly can before ANY day of work at the plant, otherwise it’ll turn to out to be another one of those slow, agonizing days.
Great Salary, a Dunkin donuts and Nathan's in the cafeteria
Dust everywhere, easy to dirty you clothes, belongings, etc. during work hours, painful work experiences if not properly equipped with the right footwear
The hourly pay is the best benefit of the job with the ability to get 1.5x hourly pay overtime if you desire. The con is you do not get to choose if you want overtime or not, you sign up for an overtime list or an 8 hour only list and they disregard the list and do not work the people who want the overtime into 2x overtime money because they want to make their offices spend less money so they make the workers who just want 8 hours of work to work longer. Additionally they created the term "undertime" doing extra work with no extra allotted time, they harass you when you do not run your routes and do things super fast, they use a lot of scare tactics. They value quantity of work done of quality of work which is why no one likes the post office now. The starting time when I was hired was 7am but then got moved back several times to 830am, it is horrible that it changes later with no option to you. The job wears on you physically and they do not care, expect to be yelled at for being to old and broken and told to quit often. They demand respect but act shamelessly, they lie and act like children. Once you get use to the money and health benefits you will find it hard to leave this place.
Reduced insurance costs, hourly pay rate without degrees, still get paid during government shutdowns
Undertime, Harrassment, Made up rules, your starting and ending hours change
