U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Reviews

What is it like working at U.S. Postal Service (USPS)?

Great Job.
United States Postal Worker (Carrier) in Van Nuys:
Pros: Working outside in the open air, meeting the public and doing my job.
Cons: Supervisors who never ever carried mail in their life.
United States Postal Worker (Carrier):
Fellow carriers are great but management treats you crap.employees are constantly under threat of write up and termination. It's a hostile working environment perpetrated by management. The pay is good and benefits are good but alot of the time it almost doesn't seem worth all you have to take from management.
Very stressful and management treat you as a number , not a person.
Heavy / Tractor-Trailer Truck Driver in Las Vegas:
Pros: Government pension
Cons: Management
Great job, good culture and benefits.
Custodian in Palm Springs:
Pros: Pay is pretty fair.
Cons: Not being a full time career employee.
Sales Clerk/Cashier in Norwalk:
Pros: Making customers happy
Cons: Bad management, lack of communication amongst management, horrible supervisory skills, and bad planing
It depends on your location and the people who manage/supervise you.
Mailman in Pittsburgh:
Pros: Unlimited sick leave, vacation and job opportunities within USPS
Cons: The physical demand and uneven work ethic by coworkers that forces more work to be expected of the harder working employees; that don’t receive bonuses for the extra work. They are also always trying to force more work in less time in an attempt to save money.
Micro Managed Postmaster Tired.
Postmaster in Broken Bow:
Pros: I love my employees. Good employees that care and love what they do will make a successful work place. I love taking care of our customers.
Cons: Being micro managed and getting more work with less help.
