I worked at US Postal Service full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

This is a government job, unionized and pays well. Once you have a few years in and become a Regular, you have full benefits, vacation and stability. If you decide to stay long enough to become a Regular employee, you will also be eligible to save for your future and retirement through a Thrift Savings Plan. if you enjoy working overtime and making extra money, the opportunities are also there.

Cons

Because you are working for the public (mail, parcels processing and delivery), Holidays are the busiest time and as an employee, you are expected to work many hours. Usually it is when you want to spend some time with family, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, and you are mandated to work these Holidays, it is not voluntary.

Advice to Management

Don't forget who you are and where you come from because you are examples for others to want to become part of the Management. Being polite and kind to the employees goes a long way and please be sure to train new employees to the fullest.
