The only good thing about working for the post office is the pay and benefits, otherwise it's the worst place I've ever worked. 99% of the people who work there are stressed out and don't like their job. There is constant back stabbing, and company morale is 0.
Pros
benefits and pay
Cons
sucks the ever living life out of you

The post office is one of the best jobs you can find that you don’t need a degree. Good pay but lacks accountability and structure. They consistently and frequently change your work schedule with 10 minutes notice. Management is disrespectful and unappreciative. They have a tendency to work you down to exhaustion and will fire you if you call and due to being physically tired. They use scare tactics and Intimidation to trick you to work more
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Terrible culture(snakes)

Although repetative, I find my job rewarding in that it is a public service of sorts. Everyone needs their mail and the US Postal Service offers the most job security for someone without a college degree making it easy for people who haven't been afforded that opportunity to still have means to take care of their families.

Just an absolute unorganized mess, too many "supervisors" who have no clue what they are doing. Absolute poor work environment. If you wanna make decent money and have no life outside of work whatsoever sign up. I'm a changed man after finally leaving that dump.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Everything.

good pay but management was non-existent. Very unorganized. Found out out it was a temp position AFTER orientation and a week into working there. Some unethical practices. Temps do whatever they want and regulars hate the temps.

The post office gives no time for a life. In the plants you can be there for 12 hours overnight. You give up everything to be there. If you are not on the overtime list they are so short staffed that they call mandatory. The workers are tired and get injuries because they work so much. The building is hot. You end up feeling sick by the end of the night.
Pros
Good pay

If your not willing to work overtime and at a fast pace this is not the job for you. It pretty easy to advance once your in the door. You have to take a drug test depending on the position.
Pros
Party and benefits
Cons
Demanding work hours

Very unprofessional in the tones and directions. Managers and supervisors fail to follow up on complaints and things that need to be changed. It was also a lot of favoritism and back stabbing and gossiping like it was a grown high school.

Even thou still working for the USPS we at the end have a sence of helping each other out to finish the tasks. Working at the processing machines is simple, but a bit tasky. Once an employee lgets the hang of it , It becomes second nature.
Pros
Good benefits and salary.
Cons
temps work exaggeratedly 12 hours daily and with only one day off.

Some days can suck, but the job security is the best I've ever had. Really good union. Really good pay. Solid career choice if you stick with it, and it is fulfilling to me and gives me a sense of purpose.
Pros
Job security, paid time off, insurance, union, good pay
Cons
Not many days off

Horrible place to work. There's a reason the phrase "going postal" originated with the post office. The management plays favorites, has zero accountability, and will routinely lie about anything that comes up. To start working for the USPS, you must enter through a temporary assignment role. Regardless if you apply for a carrier or clerk position. This temp role has wildly fluctuating hours and scheduling, much to the point you won't know if you're working the next day before you clock out. Management can and will treat you like scum because they can. The postal union really only takes care of career employees. Expect to work anywhere from 6 hours a week to 90, it varies with no rhyme or reason. The holiday season exacerbates that problem.
Once you suffer through this process long enough, which can be a significant amount of time (5+ years in some cases), you may be fortunate enough to be offered a career position. The benefit of being a "regular" is pretty much union protection and decent benefits. The pay bump you receive is decent however your hours are limited to a strict 40 per week. You may opt to sign up for an "overtime desired list" which management may or may not follow. Advancement opportunities are purely a popularity contest. The USPS routinely practices nepotism, which results in "the family" running an installation. If the "family" dislikes you, for what ever reason, your advancement prospects are shot. To remedy this, you may opt to transfer to another facility. However once you do, your "seniority ranking" is reset and you may be forced back into a temporary

Job is very physical but good place to work for. Great coworkers and management. Hard to advance to a full time position. Lots of multi tasking keeps you on your toes. Must be available 7 days a week and every holiday.
