    Pay is ok. A lot of ppl say the pay is great but honestly for the amount of stress. You can find another job making $17 with out the BS

    Good bonus scheme and benefits package. Office is in a good location and newly refurbished.

    Cons

    Everything management is bad the job is very stressful extremely demanding in the only time I ever even got ours was if it was a hundred degrees outside if it was raining or if it was snowing any other time I work one day a week and that was on a Saturday that was it also it was mandatory for us to deliver Amazon packages on holidays without holiday pay because we were not full-time employees that we're not entitled to benefits

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue stop being rude stop treating us like we're slaves is stop getting upset with us when we come to you with a problem we are not robots

    Pros

    Great people to work with. A carrer if you can stick it out and make regular.

    Cons

    My supervisor has a power trip, a bully, and is imcomatent.., doesnt know how to do the schedule or job but likes to intimate us, has double standards with her favorites and the rest of us...on the other hand the carrier supervisor is great. So 50/50....

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like their robots. Just cause your management does not mean we're below you and we're "stupid".. Respect is earned not given....Communication is a plus

    I have been working at Post Office full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Post Office provides a fast paced and challenging environment. Through my own personal experience, the post office provides great communication through change.

    There is a great focus on engagement allowing people to voice there concerns or suggestions with confidence.

    There are brilliant working benefits for example sick pay, annual leave entitlements and pension etc.

    Post office also provides motivated individuals the opportunity to develop and progress if they wish.

    Cons

    The Post Office is changing at speed. This does not suit everyone. But provides opportunity for those that it does.
