    I have been working at US Postal Service full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is $16.06 some routes are training routes for you to learn. Carriers are helpful. if you are new and don't know the area use road warrior it helps. A lot of over time.

    Cons

    the carriers don't bother trying to complete their work so CCA'S get stuck with extra work 1hr 30 min to 3 hours some times. Packages get left behind on purpose so they don't have to. Ad days are the worst it adds stress and expectations( any holidays the ads get thick) its definitely a physically demanding job. Monday is usually the heaviest mail day.

    when you are within 90 days work hard and do your best not to get hurt. after 90 days slow down i know its not the best advice but you are human and once you are done 9 times out of 10 there is plenty of extra work.

    Advice to Management

    When handing out extra work please put an accurate time. I get swings and expected to finish in an hour and a half when its more of a 3 hours worth of work.
