      The pay rate is decent and if you use your own vehicle you get reimbursed for mileage health insurance


      Non existent work life balance They have a tendency to throw you a on a route you have no knowledge of and expect you to just do it. even if you are working 40+ hours a week you don't receive any PTO

        Met a lot of good freinds. Great being part of the herd Pretty good pay and helped me pay my daughters education off for the most part


        Incompetent management, outdated and downright asinine standard rules of operations. No vision for the future. Fat, lazy, and incompetent carriers. Ancient logbooks, equipment, and rules on conduct. The us mail is so vital to the us economy, that O N E day of NOT delivering mail would CRIPPLE THE US ECONOMY!!!!!!!! But to save money the us postal service UNION Rewards all the former t/e s ( transitional non career employees) by blessing us with a 28% pay cut in march 2014. Shame On the NALC!!!!!

      I have an interview for Sr data engineer in RBC. Does anyone have any idea what can be asked? Any experience anyone can share?


      University of South Florida

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
