The postal service used to be a great place to work for good benefits and job security. No so anymore.
They provide no benefits, insurance, paid vacation, sick days, nothing, for non-career PMRs even though we are doing exactly the same work as a Postmaster, and generally working 42 - 45 hours per week.2

The job security and opportunity to gain leadership positions is awesome and one that provides a wealth of experience.
The USPS is cutting back costs and if you are in management on a salary, you will be expected to work long hours and 6 hour weeks.
