Working at the United States Postal service was an experience to say the least. Work /life balance was nonexistent. If you are just starting here you are automatically on the bottom of the totem pole which means you do all the heavy load of work. The regulars will literally watch you do the work and then disappear for HOURS while you are slaving away. You will be required to work 6/days a week most likely 12 hours a day. The pay was great but you work so much you never have time to spend it.
It's hard to be overly critical but managers really do make a difference some have the means to make things better and others simply go out of their way to make few changes to look good on paper while ruining everyone's life. In my personal experience there was little to no communication between the management team at my particular office. I feel that a lot of problems at my office could have been resolved by the little more attention to detail a little better communication skills and a few of the managers could learn some personal skills like how to deal with other employees and customers
