Great place to work but not until you become regular. Management is horrible depending on location. Most of them took an exam to became supervisors and don't actually know the job. Unless you're regular its very had to get approve for anything as far as time off or schedule change. You don't see benefits until you turn over. You may have to work anywhere from 6 months to 3 years before turning over and becoming regular. Until then you wont see any benefits. A lot of overtime during the holidays. Be prepared to work 6 days a year depending on location as well.
Busy and very productive. I've learned sorting bulk mail and separating zip codes. Management was great. The work culture was good. And the hardest part of the job was lifting heavy mail, and the most enjoyable part was playing games.
I worked for the P.O. for 20 years. The key to lasting long is don’t trust anybody. You can socialize but keep your personal business to yourself. This place is not about how hard you work but how you get along with the supervisors. Also know your rights on the job get close to a union rep because management will try to write you up for anything under the sun. The benefits and job security is good.
