    Pros

    Well there is the obvious Pros, the hourly wage! And they earn every penny!!! Depending on what post office you are working for, you can actually get a pretty good amount of hours. You basically get paid to exercise as well. The co workers were fantastic and very supportive. You learn so much about EVERYTHING the USPS does and it really is impressive!

    Cons

    The schedule. It really is tough to balance work and family, but to be fair I was told prior to hiring that it can get pretty insane. So I cant say I did not know. The 6 day work week was pretty tough for me and the possibility of 7 day work week after the training for Sunday Amazon delivery (which I think is awesome for the post office!!! ) I do not mind the physical aspects of the job, for me I just need a little time for my body to recover. The post office I worked at gave me a lot of hours. With other options available to the public the USPS has got to remain competitive as well as profitable. So the CCA's are used to help offset the cost. If I had a fairly set schedule (okay to be fair it was kind of set mon-sat 9:30 to anywhere from 4:30 to 5:30) with 2 days off a week on average (understandably operational needs may dictate extra days) I may have been able to stay.

    Pros

    Great starting pay for having no previous experience, opportunity for a lot of OT depending on which branch you work at, meeting new people & working outdoors.

    Cons

    Work/home balance is challenging, although part time & USPS can only guarantee 1 day a week you end up work 6 or 7 due to short staffing which can wear you out quick. Takes a long time to become career. Also the interview process is brutally slow, took two months after I applied just to get an invite for group interview.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that most have families & home life and we need some time off too! Management at this branch is pretty decent.

    Pros

    Job is pretty simple. Small office and work alone. Would be a great job if you were retired from a different job or a Stay at home mom that just wanted a dinky job.

    Cons

    No hours,No benefits, no way to move up or get anymore hours. Dead end job.
