Current Employee - Sub Rural Carrier in Charlotte, NC

I have been working at US Postal Service part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good pay, Good hours, and Co-workers are great. Good place to work if you have other means to receive health benefits until you become a regular employee.

Cons

Can not receive benefits until you become a regular (carrier) employee.Have not been able to bid on a regular position for the past 4-5 years. Due to implementing new machines and hiring freezes.

    RCA is an awful job - unemployment is arguably better

    I worked at US Postal Service part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a job
    Some co-workers are really great people (the only thing that made the job bearable)

    Cons

    The cons are seemingly endless: no benefits, takes 5+ years to make career, on-call every day, no set schedule, no set route, terrible managers who harass and micro-manage the carriers, laborious work, unions, have to use own vehicle sometimes, bad weather and roads in some areas, hostile patrons, hostile dogs, most mail is 'junk' anyway. Easily the most stressful job of my life. Christmas time finally did me in. A 65 hour week that had me near fainting from exhaustion and the manager found it amusing? DONE! The mental and physical toll was too much. And this is coming from a friendly hard working individual. The USPS is fated like the Titanic anyway. Proceed at your own career risk.

    I have been working at US Postal Service full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    steady income, reliable hours, working conditions are safe, many coworkers have become friends, flexible schedules allow for childcare to be done by parent

    Cons

    monotony, the postal leadership has mainly come from within which could be positive but in fact it seems that the cream has not risen to the top
