somewhat secure job, loved the employees and getting them to break new goals
blue collar work when helping get dispatches out, no raise or cost of living for 3 years
Worked at USPS as a CCA for 2 Years .. would have stayed if the chance of making regular had been on the horizon but it wasn't . There was bad abusive style managers and a couple of good ones . The hours were long and stressful often being thrown onto routes then given half another route all being done in vehicles that broke down all the time . I am married with 2 kids .. i barely seen my family in the time i was there .. i decided after being sworn at by a postmaster to " get my A** into work " on my one day off in 15 days that i had enough and quit so in short if you are single > hate your home life > want to earn a lot of money for working endless hours its a good gig .. if you have any family / social life look elsewhere !
Don't do it. Just don't. I managed to last almost a year before the 15hr days, 6 days a week finally broke me down. The pay is great and (if you have a walking route for the day) you get a lot of exercise but just about everything else is a nightmare.
