    Pros

    You don't have someone looking over your shoulder all day long. When the weather is good, you get to work in it. There is a lot of overtime.

    When you are not a regular carrier, you may have to carry a different route everyday, which makes everyday feel like your first day. You have to work more than 8 hours a day. You don't always have time to take your lunch or use the restroom.

    Just do what they say. It’s easy money. And they can depend on you. But never lower your standards. You are not a child.
    I’m a PSE Processing Clerk and I know how to run 5 machines in different operations. I create my own job security. I enjoy working at the PO. Plan to be there for many years. Want to climb to a level 12 MTE in the future.
