Post office was definitely worth if you have to live in New York but they tax you like crazy and don’t let you know every in and outs when it comes to your benefits. It can be easy going or stressful depending on your location. But if you don’t have a good manager things can really be messed up with your check or if you want to transfer for many reasons it’s not easy they will tell you wait wait and won’t work with you as easy.
If you want to advance and accept the responsibility there are numerous opportunities. Educational achievement is somewhat important yet the culture is similar to crabs in a bucket. So you will need to be cautious yet very professional.
Job Security, excellent salary with benefits

I had to ask union APWU to see if I could get a shift change because of pregnancy. It took a lil while but by Dr orders my shift was changed. It was difficult but the union made sure I received a shift change.
