Overworked and underpaid. Academy training doesn't teach any of the really important things. Goes over safety too much

Pros

Consistant Cost of Living raises, decent benefits

Cons

Supervisors will always push you to do more in less time. There we10re openings near my home, yet they place you in a far away community. No time to eat or take a bathroom break in 10 to 12 hours.

Advice to Management

Hands on training for letter carriers would train us better than movies and teachers who talk on incessantly about unimportant things. Have us walk through daily steps of scanner setup, MSP, etc. and repeat and repeat again so we remember. Make us fill out forms, practice with Advo and Satchel, physically load a truck. Movies should show oddities like there is a key in a lock box that gets you into a mailroom, or a buzzer. Why wait until we get to the street?

    Pros

    Good pay. You are on your own most of the time. Friendly, decent people as co-workers, and management. Potential to work at your own pace.

    Cons

    Training leaves much to be desired. You are on your own out in the wild without much idea as to how things work in the beginning. Moved around from route to route before you can learn them. Helpful advise that could have saved time and effort is saved until after you do things the hard way. Takes forever to get on as a 'perm' to get benefits, like 6+ years or more.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like you may want them to stick around. Let a carrier gain some confidence on their 1st route before you put them in the wringer. Quit lowering the starting pay.

    Pros

    I really can't think of any, Because they really didn't have a lot of benefits for the type of job that I was doing

    Cons

    Very odd hours, You really wouldn't know your schedule for sure, they would tell you that they needed you all day today, then the next thing you know you were told not to come in the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give the hard workers the work. Not the lazy ones that have been there for a lot of years.
