I absolutely loved my co-workers! They were amazing, caring and so helpful! The people on my route were so great and some would even try to make sure they met me by their box so they could say "Hello", ask me how I was, tell me that I was doing good! They'd look in my car and see how packed and stacked it was and how I had to stretch my left leg and arm over to the left so I could drive and couldn't even get my seatbelts on because of how I had to sit to drive and slide back and forth at every box and stretch to deliver the mail and struggle getting in and out to deliver packages that wouldn't fit in boxes. They'd tell me they couldn't do that and they didn't understand why I didn't have a right hand drive vehicle like the others set up for mail delivery to make it easier for me. They'd always tell me to have a good day and they would see me again next day that I worked! I also had some that would tell me how much they appreciated me and that they thought that I would give them outstanding service, when I'd help them get a big and heavy package in! My PM (Postmaster) on the other hand, while I was the only RCA that they had and the senior sub he was pretty good to me, but after he hired a guy for one of the other routes and this guy lucked into a right hand drive vehicle, my PM started making me feel pressured and stressed and even texted me telling me that the new guy that had a right hand drive vehicle that was set up for mail delivery, was at least twice as fast as me at every box and so we needed to get me faster, then a 3rd was hired and got put on the only route withtöbb... an llv and of course was much faster driving that! I never gave up and I would always finish my route! I did really good at getting all my mail/ packages delivered to the right place until my last couple of months, then I had a couple mis-deliveries as I was feeling more stressed from my PM,because he would constantly text or call me while I was on route and it was hard for me to try to read and respond to a text while driving and texts and calls would slow me down even more on my route!kevesebb
Worst job so far, only pro is the money, but management and politics of the work force will mentally exhaust you and your safety will ultimately be at risk so your PM can get a bonus. Unless you do well with being treated poorly, save yourself some time, the money is good, but not worth it. The people that stay are staying for that reason only, they have a family to feed so they deal with the abuse
Ive been here for like 5 6 years and i absolutely hate my job. It a lot for that reason but to sum it all up i dont feel appreciated AT ALL. They point out the little mess up you do but don't give you credit for the ball busting work we do daily.
