I wouldn’t suggest anyone work at this job. It wears your body down and barely leaves you time for your family. Management is unfair and the union is usually not on your side and tells you there is nothing they can do but make it hard for you to get out of the union. I don’t recommend this job for anyone.
This is a good job as far as pay and perks. The managers are very robotic. Lack of social IQ, respect, and appreciation is not shown. I really want to be good at this job. Yet no feed back is ever given unless its about how they need you to be faster. My job got dangled over my head 3 times and that is unacceptable.
As a mail carrier, you need to be eager and quick to learn. After learning the route, your job should be much less stressful. The hardest part of this job for me is having to learn new routes daily without being trained on the routes first.
