Overall Reviews at United States Postal Service

Training aspect is nothing to be desired
Most often the job is learned by judgement calls. And we all may have different views on judgement. So, to learn tasks the correct way usually is through a lecture from doing a task incorrectly. Co-workers are not forth coming on breaks, etc. Things of benefit to you as a new employee seems to be kept secret.
Consrarely get to take a physical break

Good place to work
Alot of advantages within the postal service. Great pay and great benefits. I started off as a janitor and now I am in management. Looking to relocate the Texas, hoping to find a career there as well.

It’s not what you think.
I recently retired after 23 years of service. I first started in the early 1990’s. It was a fun, high energy and family oriented place to work. It all changed in the early 2000’s. It became very high stressed and life-sucking organization. We were micromanaged where we often had 3+ immediate supervisors and constantly reprimanded.
ProsJob Security and Pension
ConsEmployees are not valued.

A hard place to get into
This job have a culture of its own. Its like a city within a city that is often not friendly to new employees. As a new employee I felt that the company was not surportive in helping me to obtain longevity

Would not recommend
The culture is one of mistrust and dishonesty of the highest offcials making the decisions that directly effect the employees livilihood. They expect loyalty but are not loyal to their most dedicated employees. They operate like a comunist society/ cult.

Job is what you make it.
Post office is ok, like most jobs you have the managers that are a pain, but just do your work, don't slack off, pay attention to safety is a must and you will be fine.

Long hours during Christmas
As a PSE you are only guaranteed 20 hours until you become a regular and that could take a long time. Christmas hours are VERY long and it could be up to 15 days in a row before you get a day off.
