"The main reason why someone would become a mail carrier: it pays well. The base pay is not all that exciting; you make all your money by working constantly. I often work 6 days/wk, often and 10 hrs/day. In the past 2 months, I have made over $9K (seriously). The cons are plenty: long hrs/days, having little work-life balance, stress, and inclement weather to deal with. If you can learn to roll with the punches and suck it up, the paychecks sure make it worthwhile."

"I’ve worked for USPS since June 2019. The company is lacking communication and also does not appreciate good workers. No room for advancement starting pay and benefits are weak for your job responsibility."

"I currently work for the United States Postal Service HQ as a Contract Specialist and I appreciate the team effort and communication. I work with not only my colleagues but internal and external customers/suppliers as well so it is important to have an open flow of communication so expectations are clear and all tasks are completed in a timely manner. Although, I appreciate and enjoy my work I am looking for a career that provides more of a challenge. I am seeking the opportunity to use and expand my knowledge and skills in the field of Law."

"I've worked with the USPS since 2008. This is a good paying company that has been slow to change. Change is need to complete with competitors. Their is a need to update the manufacturing technology and real estate to bring the company to current times. Good benefits and if you are mobile you can advance quickly."

"I’ve worked at the United States postal service since 2014. It took me 4 years to be converted into a career employee, instead of contract. The job is very easy and will allow you to make a basic living . However, I find it difficult to move up in the job and supervisors lack team work and leadership skills. Coworkers will help you to get through the job."

"I began working for USPS in September of 2017, and have been an employee for a little over 2 years. While working there I have enjoyed being in front of a computer screen and seeing how quickly and efficiently I can scan and document images. While I love the actual work, I find the management difficult. I find it difficult because depending on who it is dictates which rules are followed or taken into their own terms."
