Great place to work at good benefits You can learn alot about the working environment. You sit in the truck with the driver and deliver packages all day, most are around 25 lbs but can be up to 75 lbs.
I absolutely loved working for the United States Postal Service. I was too young to truly appreciate the job I had, and I took it for granted and lost it. Any one would be lucky to get on with the Postal Service.
You literally have noooo life working 6 days a week sometimes 7. They don’t care if you have kids to leave at a decent time once your done with your route, you have to go help others or go to another station.
Working for the postal service was a good job to get after retiring from the military. However, I experienced negative feedback from management due to my military background. I was told by my manager, that retired military people was taking jobs from others that needed it most.
Pay is good but management sucks, they are rude disrespectful and feel as if they can say whatever because they are management. You don't start as a regular so the hours are terrible you work six days a week any time they tell you.
Hours, rude management, off days, work every holiday
I enjoyed working for USPS, beside the fact that management does not acknowledge hard workers but by asking more of them and allowing others to slack (especially due to personal relationships/favorites), the work environment for the most part is very friendly and most have been then 10+ yrs, so you can ask almost anyone there for help from any department/area.
Temp to Hire. I enjoyed what I was doing, but Supervisor was hard to deal with because he was in charge and I could not complain. Was'nt giving enough time to figure everything out. Supervisor caused undo stress.
Processed incoming and outgoing mail in both plant and post office facilities using automated mail processing equipment or manual methods of sortation and distribution. Read and sorted mail quickly and accurately. Collated, bundled, and transferred processed mail from one area to another.
The United States Postal Service is a great place to work. You will have job security, excellent benefits and you can advance quickly if wanted. Management has a few kinks that has to be fixed but other than that its a great place to be.
The Post Office has great benefits however it is not the most family oriented place but it is a secure job. I have learned a lot in the 20 years of employment. Training technician and customer service is where I had the chance to shine my skills and work with people outside of the average everyday job. I love those positions.
Always arrive on time. A team player. Once get to work start working do not stand around and talk with other employees. Work well with others. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping customers, representing the company in a positive way.
A typical day at work consisted of sorting packages and delivering them to a variety of people. I learned how to get around town and where certain places that I had never been to were. The management was great (helpful, patient and kind). My coworkers were helpful and only seen in passing (always working hard). The hardest part of the job was trying to find places that I had never been to. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to drive around all day.
The money was great, not stressful
Driving through the worst parts of town (on occasion)
