The management was very unorganized The work was great but there wasn't any training. Pay was low and not a friendly place to work. The benefits were poor and the work load was very intense

I terminated my employment so I could relocate to Arizona. If I had tried to transfer it would of taken me several years. The people I worked with where great.

Worked as a Casual Holiday worker. Very Physical , Long hours and night work. USPS is unfortunately a large company with a problem of ineffiency and a culture that feels very impersonal. Most notably the huge disparity between workers and supervisors.(Too many chiefs not enough Indians) Way to many supervisors, many who stand around watching not a lot of good examples. There are the good examples that make it worth it.
Pro érvek
Overtime

The job sounds great at first, until you realize that you rarely get days off. And unless you are an olympic athlete or favored by management will not make it to regular. I worked 40 days in a row without a day off. And when i finally started getting days off they wanted me to call in the morning to see if i was needed. Absolutely not worth the pay or possible benefits down the road. If you can find any other job that clears $14 an hour with benefits i would take it over usps. But that's just me.
Pro érvek
On your own most of the time.
Kontra érvek
No time off. Unreasonable demands.

The work is very hard. Managers fire people on their whim. Most managers do not have any education behind them and are given to hostile tactics to get their employees to perform faster. While they can not fire the regular employees without a really good reason, they will spend their day making them as misserable as possible until they quit. The job is very dangerous and many of the employees have work injuries or chronic issues related to the physical requirements of the job, or the fact that most postal employees work the graveyard and do not see the light of day. Depression is pretty common.
Pro érvek

I enjoyed my time with the Postal Service as pay and benefits are very good. I now have a pension with 34 years worked (retired). The two tough things at times are the bad weather, hot or cold to work outside in and sometimes you get supervisors and managers that lose their humanity and manage with a very heavy hand coming down on you when you make a mistake. You need to stay very upbeat in this job.

A typical day at work isn't too bad. You really have to come in mentally and physically prepared every day that you work. If, not then the job can be very challenging. I've learned plenty from this job. I've learned nothing comes easy and that you have to stay consistent and work hard for what you want.This is far from a perfect job. The co-workers are great! You will build mostly positive relationship with your co-workers. The hardest part about the job is that you are required to work your best everyday and that can be physically and mentally draining. The most enjoyable part of my job is building relationships with others.

Promoting from within into high level management positions has killed the USPS. They think the people who got them into the financial mess that they are in are somehow going to get them out of it, (naïve or plain stupid). Need to axe 2/3 of the management and 1/3 of the dead wood clerks who don't care if they case 2 feet of mail per shift or 20 feet (and management doesn't care). They'll just make the other two thirds who actually work make up for the slack. Real fair system you got going there. No wonder half of the employees are on anti depressants or anti anxiety meds. The carriers work their butts off.
Pro érvek
pay, okay benefits but not great
Kontra érvek
Horrific management decisions, paranoid supervisors.

As a CCA you are expected to be on-call EVERY day and you generally work EVERY day, including Sundays. At the end of each work day you are so tired you can't really do anything at all. At first you have extra energy, but then after 5 days you're ready for a day off. BUT, you don't get one. On nice days and when you get a route you've been on before, it will seem relatively easy. But then it rains. And you get a bundle full of ads that fall apart and won't fit in the tiny slots and you can't find the mail boxes and vicious dogs bark at you and the mail gets so wet it falls apart in your hand and you just want to break down and cry and then it gets dark and you can't see and you come back to the station and they tell you you aren't fast enough. Shall I continue? Don't make any plans to do anything but work. You will make boatloads of money, but you will work your tail off for it. Have no expectations and pretend you love what you are doing otherwise it will get you down and you won't make it. If you can last a year...that's a long time...you may get on as a regular and then you'll have days off and life will get easier. But forget about it if you're older and if you have family and a life because you won't be able to do anything...like go shopping for food and cleaning your room...unless you are a super hero. Good luck!

A typical day at work would include a morning phone call telling me where and when I will be working. It could be at any Post Office in the Portland District. I could start between 7am and 11am. The offices are poorly managed as they can not even get a regular schedule together for their CCA's. The hardest part of this job is working 7 days a week with part time hours. A usual day would be 6-7 hours with Sundays being the exception taking around 4-6 hours.
Pro érvek
Decent pay, easy work.
Kontra érvek
Terrible organization, no consistent schedule, no days off.

Pay very close attention to details while working in a fast paced environment with no errors, completing tasks in timely fashion.

My career spanned over thirty years, therefore I worked on various shifts. My responsibility started with the set up of the manual flats (large envelops) sections. The staging of mail to be process was accomplished next. After the mail was process (sorted) to it's proper zones (zip codes), the mail was collected and distribute to the dispatching gate for that zone on schedule. Management was great at allowing me to make decisions that increase the effectiveness of the unit. Many of my co-workers shared in this culture that management saw as a plus to the service. There was no part of my job that was hard, the difficulty came about when I had to conduct my Union Steward responsibilities. This was due largely do to the fact, that in certain situations you can't please everyone. There was time when Management didn't understand/agree and times when co-workers were in the same situation. Overall the enjoyable times occurred at the end the day, when I felt I had done an honest days work for a days pay in all aspects of my positions.

this company was terrible to work for. the management could care less about saving money or resources, all they cared about was getting the job done for the day. I watched some much time wasted and resources lost. also the company could care less about making a profit.

A usual day includes seperation of mail, always adjusting to new ways of doing things as more technology comes into the work place, co-workers for the most part at many facilities are nice to work with. There really isn't a hard part of the job as it is easy to get along with everyone you work with and as long as your working productively and effeciently there are never any problems.
Pro érvek
great pay for what you do

no benifits for temporary positions
