As a carrier in postal service we should to be ready to work 7 days a week more than 10 hours a day, some week we do not have a day off, some week we receive a phone call in our day off to go to work. Postal service is the most stress full place. The job is mostly psychical job. It's hard but at the same time is fun too. Few hours we are working in the office and few hours we are in street.
early hours in the morning sometimes starting at one am would be the hardest part but then you would meet the truck bring the parcels in and distribute them to the right routes then after completing the parcels then you would do the P.O box session putting the mail for the right customers in the box.
Meet lots of great people on the route and build relationships, great for networking. Management very crooked and goes against policy, union reps are also corrupt. Pay has been inaccurate more times than I can count, no digital system, pay is tracked on paper and they have taken hours off purposely and have tried to cover it up. Different people held to different standards. The harder you work the more you have to pick up others slack and you're lucky if the pay is correct
