Unconventional

Postal Support Employee (Current Employee) Lexington-Fayette, KY

Pros-Hours are available if you are willing to learn and travel to other offices
-Great coworkers
-Good pay rate for the level of education necessary
-If you're not lazy and value physical fitness, you will enjoy this job

Cons-Hard to move up or make regular employee as a clerk (but it is possible.)
-Work life balance is nonexistent (It was difficult to sleep eight hours a night with the rotating shifts, and planning anything more than a week in advance is impossible)
-Upper management comes down hard on middle management to cut hours and avoid overtime whenever possible. Sometimes the work just doesn't get done and piles up.

Advice to Senior ManagementCaring more about work-life balance might make people less likely to call in, and having the right number of people and doing the job right the first time would mean not having a mountain of work to do later.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
