This is the worse job ever. Their is no respect or care for the associates or their well being. I was in a vechile incident because of icy weather. When I called it in, I was asked about the vechile, told to back out and proceed with delivering the mail. I was once bitten by a pit bull dog. I was told to finish my route. And the terror goes on.
job is good for going in career wise, just take a lil longer to move up. they put a lot of pressure on the new workers, and managers can really get to you. very fast pace, but its all on your pace, you got to really do the best to make it there.
It's an ok part time job, but no benefits or room for advancement. Management tries their best but corporate is not very involved. Trucks are taken care of for the most part but no air conditioning and heat doesn't work well.
A typical is starts off by the supervisors standing behind you steadily looking at their watch, you have a certain time to get all your mail cased and ready to get started, if you don't have time work. GOOD LUCK>
A typical day at work at USPS, a very heavy workload. The volume of mail is manageable but the volume of packages is unmanageable. The communication with management is very weak. The culture is a cut-throat environment. I heard the Postmaster talking about an employee that suddenly quit with a non-management person. She was laughing and using condescending words about the employee that had quit. The hardest part of the job is not having a bathroom accessible.
I must say that this was one of the hardest and most physical jobs that I have ever worked sense I was 16 years old. The environment was always rush rush. The supervisors timed you when you went to the restroom. The older employers despides the seasonal worker and shows this in contempt in the working environment. It was also a dirty job, one that left you dirty from head to toe! I worked my season of environment but, it was rough!
The job was easy but had an issue with benefits and the H.R. department was unwilling to address the situation and when I brought it to the attention of the postmaster he neglected to look into the matter further. I was double charged for health benefits and they just say I was responsible for the deduction.
