"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."

"The job is a good place to start even if you don't have a degree. But the hours can vary and moving up to the next step can be a long time."

"The post office is huge, with so many varying opinions and not much organization, it was difficult to navigate. As a supervisor, I dealt with programs that hadn’t been changed in 20 years, but very different needs."

"I have only worked for the post office for 5 months but the people I meet are great. I work 6 half days a week so it is only a part time gig and the money is great for the area we live in. However, my husband recently got a new job so we are moving therefore, I would like something that is full time and allows a little more flexibility!"
