I have been working at US Postal Service full-time

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?
