    I have been working at US Postal Service

    Pros

    This is a Family oriented company, such a good place to work nobody wants to retire, great benefits and an excellent retirement plan.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative about the US Postal Service but the one thing I would say is the fact that if you have a position outdoors, it is definitely weather driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a little more involved in some of the positions like letter carriers to better understand that some demands are unreasonable.

  2.  

    Great job if you have lots of free time.

    I have been working at US Postal Service as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Pleasant co-workers, immediate supervisor was pretty good at scheduling annual leave.
    Hours were steady throughout the year, drop off in the summer time though.

    Cons

    Nobody in management is willing to train you on anything, you have to learn it yourself.
    Upper management treats you like you are a piece of dung on a hot day.
    No Work/Life balance whatsoever.
    No schedule ever posted, even with grievances filed and won in favor of it.
    Constantly crunching the numbers to "save money", even though overtime is paid out in mass amounts.
    Unrealistic demands and "manufactured" productivity numbers.
    Draining the morale out of your employees, just so management can sit around and text all day, or chit-chat on facebook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're destroying a beautifully designed organization, created to SERVE the American people. The internet has played a major role in the decline of first class mail, however, the clientele have been mistreated and abused because of your hostile approach and trickles down to the men and women who meet and greet those people. Find innovative ways to supplement and ENHANCE the services you offer.
