Great place work.tobthay have great benefits but have to wait a min of 30 months be for you become a regular employee. But the good thing is that you have a job available to you while you wait for your time to finally become reguar.
While it is said that the Post Office is a Government job, it operates separately and does not receive funding. So if you wanted to transfer into another Government job, you would not keep your tenure. You would start from zero, and have to pass all the background checks.
The Post Office will provide great income, so long as you come in under management that is fair. If you have a manager that actively practices favoritism, your hard will mean nothing.
Dayton, Oh post office is not a representation for the entire USPS. Would work for another division of USPS if the opportunity presented itself.
Goodyear, Arizona post office has a very nice, customer service friendly crew.
The post office has changed. The pay is not the same. You have to work in multiple offices to get hours. Please be considered of the title you receive when you start, it may not be something that can advance. I was thankful for my opportunity but I wasn’t much of a fighter to get to the top like most. I’m too laid back for this uptight job-every thing is basically timed. However, if you work hard and speak up, you will be able to make some decent pay.
my experience working for the post office was not bad.At entry or non- career positions the pay is good but there is a lot of working hours some days is 12 hours. so for whose ones who like to work hard and long hours which is not a bad thing then postal services job is for you I did enjoy my job .
Part time works 6 days a week. No free time. They have the right to make you work whenever they call. Management is a joke and union. Don’t care about customer receiving their mail in a timely manner. They will send mail back without thinking it could be important.

PSE (Volt alkalmazott) - Ada, OK - 2020, január 28.
The most unprofessional place I've ever worked. I was told on my first day there that PSE stood for "Piece of S-h!t" employee and that's exactly how I was treated.
The office that I worked for has the worst reputation in the State of Oklahoma (just ask any APWU rep). Subs from local offices have even quit so that they would not have to go back to fill in for them. ABSOLUTELY NO TRAINING WAS PROVIDED FOR THE JOB AND NO TIME WAS GIVEN TO LEARN THE JOB. They forced a newbie to work by themselves a few weeks after starting and then had the audacity to complain that mistakes were made. There's a reason that they can't keep good people. The regulars consistently bully and abuse people until they quit out of self-preservation, but don't let that deter you. If you like working in a hostile work environment and being micro-managed by unqualified and clueless people, then this is the place for you. But definitely watch your back.
It's mind-blowing to know that my experience is pretty standard. It's not a secret. The USPS is completely aware of issues like this throughout the organization and has not taken steps to correct any of it.
I was hired for Christmas help, was kept on after the holiday season because of my work skills, learned how to run different machines, and manual mail sorting, got along well with management and other employee's, the hardest part of the job was the hours, they changed week to week and was always 2nd or 3rd shift
It wasn't surprising to find several of my coworkers less than motivated to work. It doesn't matter how hard or how little you work, due to the fact they choose people from their list to stay on or get laid off based on how they did on the test. It's discouraging to work ethic because even if you work hard it won't really do anything to help you get kept on. The manual work is easy enough. Think warehouse type work. Great pay and benefits!
The job was great and I felt very valued at work. The worst part of the position I held was the fact that there were no benefits. The company terminated employment for 5 days every year so they do not have to pay benefits.
