I have been working at US Postal Service (More than a year)

Pros

The pay is pretty good for the type of work done, at least to start out. I'm not sure about how it compares 10 years down the road. And you know that you are part of bringing people some happiness through letters, postcards or magazines and keeping communities alive with newspapers, voting materials, and even bills.

Cons

You have to start out as a non-career Postal Support Employee, or PSE, and depending on your installation they can be treated pretty badly. I don't have it too bad where I am but we still have to put up with things like being forced out or made to work late with no notice. Pretty much everybody I know has been called to overtime with less than ten minutes until their scheduled end tour. And there's no way to know how long it will take to make career status.

    I have been working at US Postal Service full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    stability, pay, benefits, non sedentary work and a strong union representation.

    Cons

    career advancement is limited, no incentive for college educated employees, extreme weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    promote from within employees who seek to improve the company and not because weather or limited physical activity mandates. improve management credibility by promoting employees who have completed college course work and could apply learned theory to current conditions.

    I worked at US Postal Service full-time

    Pros

    Great way to stay in shape.
    You get to meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    Some dogs are very protective of their home. When starting off, you carry more mail then one route, and are expected to finish on time. Some people treat you like a contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the work load.
