    "Postal Madness"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Electronics Technician in Manchester, NH
    Current Employee - Electronics Technician in Manchester, NH

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

    Pros

    There is little pressure to perform. Benefits package is adequate especially time off.

    Cons

    Little job satisfaction. Union shop where 'start dates' trump job performance in all aspects of the job. Grossly mismanaged with a losing business plan in an incredibly top heavy organization rife with micro (or even nano) management.

    Advice to Management

    Formulate a profitable business plan. Stand strong and end Mailhandler overtime.
