Working for the post office is not what it seems. You only go to work to make a check, but the managers do not respect you, your time or your health. All they are worried about is getting their mail out on time.
My position requires safety, to make sure the outside world of the post office received their packages and mail safely and unharmed.It was a fast pace working job but the harder you work the better chance of cram in the latter to do better
I am hardworking, friendly , easy going and multitasking. I worked a seasonal holidays only. That was a wonderful experinced for me. I meet all differences people and came from other different countries. And it’s very nice to be one of thier friends. We work as a team. We helping each other and sharing food. In our break time. It’s a amazing experienced to be with. And some of them is my close friend now either we are located different areas.
Its very demanding physically and at time mentally, the pay is good but get ready to be over worked and unappreciated.The pay is decient cause they literally work you 6 days a week 10 to 12 hrs a day. Only for the strong faint of heart or lazy need not apply yoy gotta be a trooper to work for USPS
It’s a nice place to work if you mind your business keep to yourself too much drama if you let people convince you management drama keep your business to self they would tell people it would be all over place.
Be ready to give your life away! They treat you bad and want you to work 6 days a week 10 hour days NO EXCEPTIONS ! Also force you to work machines that require a minimum of two ppl by yourself then rush you get done before the next shift meaning you literally need to be in two places at once to finish on time ! And your prize for finishing your work on time and working by yourself is being forced to work 2 extra hours overtime even tho you just broke your back making sure the work was finished on time
As a PSE Mail Clerk, I start each day with a load of envelopes, packages and parcels to process. However, management does not give a great impression on the first few weeks. I was often left feeling somewhat lost, and overworked. I also learned becoming a regular will take a long, unspecified time. Some of the people I’ve met say he/she didn’t get a full 40-hour week until becoming a regular after 1-4 years. This alone should tell you what the growth of the company is like - expectations vs. reality.
Keeps you on your feet, great weight loss/workout, decent pay, independent work
Poor management, non-guaranteed growth, wacky hours, no schedule change if at all
It’s a busy and fast pace job there is always something to do your time goes by quickly and always learning something new. I enjoyed working for the post office and also my coworkers as my supervisors.
Working with this company was completely different from all of my other jobs I've worked in the past. I was surround around productive, motivated and happy individuals. Some days before the holidays were challenging, but rewarding afterwards. The employees always willing to help you and work together as a team. The postmaster was impressed with my work and suggested me to apply for a permanent position. Overall, I would recommend this job to anyone that willing to work.
The United States Postal Service Pontiac plant is like many federal government jobs Several lazy incompetent managers whom treat their employees with complete disrespect while simultaneously sitting around on their lazy butts. Many haven’t a clue how to motivate and inspire their teams. The organization rewards mediocracy! It was an unorganized and toxic work and environment. If you value time and sanity think twice.
