    Working outdoors and providing an essential service to the public.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at US Postal Service full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It pays pretty well, with the current pay being $17.95 an hour. After 40 hours, its time and a half. After, I believe, 56-58 hours, it is double time. If you're looking for work and decent pay, this is the place. Maybe you'll even go on to be a regular one day, which is a step up from a PSE because you become a career employee. In that case, you gain certain rights and benefits previously not present to you. It'll usually take a few years though. There is no interview. They will hire anyone with a pulse and your coworkers will reflect that. You can go on to be a regular one day, which is a step up from a PSE because you become a career employee.

    Cons

    If you're in college or have other concrete obligations that need to be accommodated for, than this job is not for you. Management only cares about one thing, that's the mail. They don't care about the time that you were supposed to go on break or how you feel. Management will not hesitate to abuse you and violate some of your rights, so speak to the appropriate union that you are in, You will be mandated overtime during busy times; you will be sent home early during low-volume times. You will be sent all over the place and the hours that you come in and your days off will change at the will of the supervisor or anyone that is in management. Pretty much, your life is the USPS. You will do as they say, when they say it. They will expect your life to revolve around the facility. This is a harsh, robotic environment. If you're looking for a place that makes you feel like you're making a difference, values their employees, and is overall just a great work environment, this isn't it.
