My job is stressful management is sorry & they allow the young workers to do nothing, there motto is let workers that dont work do nothing & dog the workers. The end of April will be 34 yrs. for me I just tired of all the favouritism & BS in here.
It can be a blessing or a curse based on where you work in the post office. The worst time is becoming a permanent full time employee. Sometimes its quick other times it takes yrs. That's a huge problem for retirement because your time doesn't count until your permanent. And management treats you rough during that time as well.
The USPS is now run by slave masters who will work you to the grave so that they can appear to have the most productive PO around.Postmasters were concerned with getting only the youngest and quickest workers, most over 35 year olds could not keep up the pace.
The post office is excellent for making good money and working over time. Overtime is absolutely available even when not needing it. It is enforced most of the time in no regards of your outside life and duties of responsibilities. The job itself is easy... its the labor that tares your body down young or old. Its always such a negative work environment rather its the employees or management. All money isn't good money if the peace of mind and sanity doesn't come with it. Its a job that really doesn't appreciate its employees. UNLESS YOUR ON THE MAIL TRUCK DELIVERING THE MAIL. The best job of them all of the post office.
Better treatment....better pay and appreciate your workers more. Everyone is so miserable....more people will come to work with better attitude if they were treated better and also treated with respect
Working at the USPS as an fedaral employee, during seasonal term has given me helpful experience and understanding on what's needed to get the job done. I will be extremely grateful if called back to finish more exciting and rewarding opportunities at the USPS! Thank you!
I would like to grown with this company just waiting for them to hire again so I can go for full time job there and not seasonal it a good paying job Supervisors was very nice and professional employees was good there as well family friendly and can grow there they help with hand teach you very well
Was promised to become permanent but it's all a wishful thinking. Supervisor just say what you want to hear to meet their goals. Lay you off for a week, then hired back as a casual so no chance to become permanent.
I think being a temporary mail handler the pay should be much more than $12 a hour.The temps does all the work and make sure this mail get out of this building the supervisors work temps harder then the M.H.A (mail handler Assistant) and the regulars (permanent workers ..The salary for the temps should not be $12 a hour being that temps(temporary workers does all the work
United States postal service is a okay job. The perks of it is your always there you never have off. But other then that real layed back. You get a lot of overtime if you want it. People are really cool
other than orientation there is no training they kinda just throw you on the worksite and want you to learn for there. i was luck and had some coworkers that where really nice and knew how it was and taught me some tricks. Other than that brakes every 2 hours for 15 min (plus a 5 min wash up so 20 min) management is okay there is a lot of them at different hours and took a while to get used to. hours are really good at the beginning i would have 4 to 5 hours shifts and each week it would go up to 6 to 8 and then at the end i would almost be doing 10 hours a day
Working for the Postal Service was a great experience. I enjoyed working with so many wonderful people. It was a very physical job, however I was able to endure. I learned so much about the Postal Service during my tenure there.
