If you never went beyond High School it a great wages and benefits for Florida. That said... I heard from a Plant Mgr.’s mouth if it were up to him everybody would be working Midnights with split weekdays off! The Union is worthless. STAY AWAY!
The postal service can be very difficult. Arrive at work and deal with being harrassed Management will attempt to fire you at their will The most enjoyable part is once you start your route and no manager is there harassing you. I learned how to work in toxic hostile environments
Hard work while paying attention to detail! Management was fair , but did not need to have higher education. Very diverse culture and environment. Had to adapt to all types of weather environments and deal with different personalities while performing your daily deliveries and duties. After working hard the pay really made me appreciate the job security.
As I was the new guy I only had one day off and it was Sunday. It was hard to do other personal errands while at this job. The supervisors and managers are not understanding of the situations that may occur on your life. Overall is a great job with great benefits and great pay just make sure you don't get sick or request days off.
The Manangement in St Petersburg has no idea how to run a facility. They treat the employees horribly. The Postmaster promotes her family and tries to hide it. They act like everyone is trying to get something over on managment. They also dont want employees to have good days off. They are currently trying to change all the bids from weekends off to middle of the week.
careers advancement ,safety training programs, Union helper , communities involvement , evaluation of all arears employee and employer. Keep you inform of all employee right under the government and local government rules.
Highly stressful job the first 15 years of employment. Worked practically every holiday, and weekend. Never knew from contract to contract the future of my job or the Postal Service. Pay and benefits were the only reason someone would work under the aforementioned conditions.
The latter 8 years were less stressful, however, the office which I worked at was scheduled for closure at an undetermined date. This was the deciding factor in my retirement.
Carriers spend around 1.5 hours in the office preparing the mail for delivery. Then we drive to our routes to deliver the mail. A professional estimate of time for out daily work load of mail is required. I usually met my daily quota. If not there was usually an acceptable explanation for not making quota. I have a great attendance record. The hardest part of the job is meeting daily expectations of the supervisors. The job is based on a mail count system and then calculated by a computer program that has been proven to be incorrect with time quota calculations.
I have great customers, and enjoy delivering good customer service.
Enjoyed the years and much gained experience that will last me an life time thankful for the opportunity working in many areas within the manufacturing process,team work.hard place to work but enjoyed it .
great pay, but the post office is going through a lot of changes right now and unless you are a regular and have been with the company for a good amount of time then you won't get all the benefits that they do.
