You have to keep up the pace to work at the Post Office. You cannot just think that you will "get by" unnoticed if not pulling your fair share. You do have to get up early, work hard and always be there. Calling in sick is frowned upon unless really ill. It makes you feel good when you do your job and do it well. Customers mostly appreciate you and what you do. You are always a "part" of their day, everyday.
Unfair, biased, petty place to work. High stress and the benefits are only basic. I’ve had a miserable time working at this company. They sniff out that you are a person that doesn’t want to be bothered and stay trying to make it hard for you.
Good pay and benefits but takes a while to get in good. Takes about 2 and a half years to get a set schedule and full benefits but is worth the wait. If you plan on going to school or working part time, post office is not for you.
I started as a clerk quickly became a clerk trainer from my first year until my 23 year. Was a distribution clerk and a window clerk all 23 years.first I was trained on the job training. Being a military person I fit in perfectly. I could take orders and give them out as well and expected to learn and account for all funds daily. Maintain and order the supplies I used on a daily basis.
Is a fast paced workplace. Has busy seasons and slower seasons. Requires flexibility and teamwork. Pay is great and benefits are good. Job title can very based on the position hired for. Plenty of movement available within the post office.
Great place to work! I like that I can advance and move around to experience different things within the postal service. I really like my job and the post office that I work at in particular. There is about 70 of us, and it’s like we are like family.
I am older so the amount of lifting heavy bins hour after hour was very taxing on me and I wasn't able to continue without further injury. I had minor sprain injuries. There was no actual interaction with a person to interview, otherwise, I would have realized the job was too hard for me at my age. it can take years to become a career employee. you are offered health dental vision benefits even as a non-career employee within the first two weeks of working.
Its good money but your working very hard to get it. The benefit of a career job is high. You are not a career employee to start and in some situations, it may take years to become a career employee. You must be a career employee to receive the highest benefits such as retirement.
Decent pay, time off when you need it but a LOT of back stabbing. You always have to watch your back. Management is always changing and one hand doesn't know what the other is doing half the time but overall OK. Could be a great career for the right person
The job is great keeps you busy so it can go by really fast, great pay and benefits, but if they don't like you you will suffer, they will do anything to try and take your job. Management is very horrible and will throw you under the bus at any.miment. not many trustworthy people.
Benefits are great once you become career employee. It also depends on the office you work at on management cause some managers are fair but for the most part they dont care if you have a life or a family.
I used to love my job. The pay is great. Communication is not so great. Everyone is under so much pressure. They keep loading more and more work onto you but won’t give more time or staff to do it. They waste our time with things that don’t make sense. I just wish they would let us do our jobs the way WE, the clerks and carriers know how to do it. Management is their own worst enemy.
I would have loved this job, but they subcontract the PSE employees, our contracts don't even cover half of what the regular employees have and were are treated like slave workers. No time off, expected to stay 3 hours past shift time. I delt with sexual harassment from a supervisor, only to find out he had the same issue at another post office and they just placed him at a new office.
Nice place to work with great benefits. Nice atmosphere. The health benefits are the best. Part of the retirement benefits come from the thrift savings plan which the post offices matches the first 5% that you contribute.
