Nice and good environment for the work. Most of the coworkers are always helping out others. It is the sheer work load that that keeps the new workers on their toes all the time.

Do not work here, you will hate your entry level position. It’s only good if you are a career employee, which is determined by seniority. You have to wait for someone to either retire or move stations, which can take years to happen. Good luck if you can make it through the entry level years alive!

We should be getting hazard pay. The other essentials are. The Carona V has been all in this place. They only care about productivity and the bottom dollar.

Modern day slavery at its best. Having seniority means you are “liked more”. No work life balance and you are looked at as “the help”. The people there remind me of the aliens from men and black. Very much racist at certain offices.
Pros
Pays well if you don’t mind being a slave
Cons
Very labor intensive

If you like to work basically your whole life away, making great money, this job would be perfect for you. If you have a family and want to actually enjoy some of the earnings you work so hard for...this isn't the job for you. You can make great money but management is horrible and the usps does NOT care about you or your family. This was made even more apparent with covid. They did not disclose exposure and actually kept it a secret from their workers while also running out of soap, gloves, and other necessary cleaning supplies. If you're ok with being just a number then I highly recommend!
Pros
Great pay, good benefits and possible growth
Cons
Horrible management, no schedule flexibility, 6 days a week, no set hours, work every holiday

As a PSE you don’t really have any say so over your schedule. During peak season you can receive an abundance of hours and during the slow times they can cut you down to 20 hrs a week.

Loved the job going in. Pay was awesome. People were well seasoned and mostly friendly. Mandatory overtime can be rough because its last minute and you cant turn them down. The training wasnt very good. They put you in areas and expect you to learn on your own. The supervisors were not organized and screamed at you to make deadlines so they would look good. Alot of physical labor involved. Bending, lifting heavy bags, standing in one spot in the heat for up to 12 hours. If you are in good health, i recommend it. You can become a career employee if you stick with it. I didnt like the yelling and not posting the schedule on time
Pros
money and some nice people
Cons
poor supervisors

That job was the worst thing that ever happened to me. They really do promote people commensurate with the level of their incompetence, and they use power in punitive ways that are neither ethical nor legal.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Head games too cruel to imagine and too hard and long to explain

Everyone is very nice at first but then you realize that they are all 2 faced. You never know who to trust as everyone speaks badly of everyone else. Constantly need to watch your back. Anything you say, WILL get around to everyone else. Employees spend more time trying to figure out ways of how to not work than actually working.

Supervisors are there just to get their time in towards their pensions. They don't listen and don't care.
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible Mgmnt and pay

The post office is a good company. It just consumes so much of your life. Young people with no kids would soar high within this company. The turnover rate is high. As long as you come to work ON TIME, you can’t get fired. Great opportunity

I loved it wanna go back but trying to get in is kinda hard . The job is great and very physical so it keeps you in shape for a healthy lifestyle. If you don’t like being on your feet then you won’t like it

Takes month to get back to you about their decision, couldve applied and worked somewhere better. As seasonal pse, management is rude and has favoritism. Anyone can get hired. Working hard isnt rewarded, but slacking off a bit hits hard against you, could even get you fired or calling out for 3 days, without union. Schedule changes too often, lots of unnecessary overtime last minutes notice. Not worrh it at all. Dont let their pay fool ya.They only cared about numbers anyway. No wonder its failing.
Pros
Good amount of breaks, vending machines every corner for convenience, decent pay, you can work with friends, spouse, and family
Cons
Rude management sucks, high pressure to meet high expectations, can get fired for anything as seasonal without union, they call overtime randomly even when not needed, they change schedule too often without notice at all, not flexible with life/work balance
