U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an United States Postal Worker (Carrier) at U.S. Postal Service (USPS)?

United States Postal Worker (Carrier) in Alameda:
"Easy work and pay for daily stress."
Pros: My co-workers. They provide ongoing job support while learning the ins and outs of the position. Easy, mindless, work that any body can do with lots of time to yourself. Decent job for somebody that has not figured out their next step in terms of career.
Cons: Feels like there is no room for career growth, or rather there is but one is then tasked with taking on more stress with a supervisor or postmaster position. The quality of management is spotty, with the incompetent ones overshadowing the qualified. It seems that the stress is strongly correlated with management in whether or not they themselves are exploding results out of proportion or not.
