"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."

"Working at USPS has been one of the worst experiences of my life. I'm seriously overworked and underpaid even more. The career employees have become very lazy since placing RCA's at the post office. I have experienced a lot of favoritism at the post office. Career employees are calling out whenever they want and supervisors are expected to fill in for them on our days off. RCA's don't accrue any sick time or vacation time, which is definitely unfair. Had I known then what I know now, I would have never accepted a job with the post office."

Clerk

"USPS is a great job and has good pay and benefits but it is very fast paced, stressful and highly physical. The training on how to life properly needs to be better addressed as there are a lot of work related injuries within the Postal Service. I love my job with the Postal Service but am needing something less physical as I had back surgery that resulted from a work related injury two years ago."

"Working for the United States Postal Service will allow you to have a pretty comfortable life; however, it's not your typical 9-5; as a Mail Carrier, you're not through until ALL mail has been delivered and you will work in ALL environmental elements. I can't speak on the entire USPS company just my experience as a Mail Carrier. The work hours can get hectic and if you're a single mother without any help from a partner or family the struggle of work life-time balance becomes real. The job role of the mail carrier is NOT single mother conducive."

"This is a good company to work for temporarily, until they stop paying you for your hard work and cut your hours. Supervisors don't keep their word, and are very dishonest, I have worked at three different locations the past 3 years and they are all the same."

"Experience can vary greatly by office. Good pay and solid benefits. As non-career you will generally struggle to get enough hours, or be bombarded with more work than you can handle. Day to day roller coaster with mail and package volume; never know what to expect when you walk in the door. Current trucks not suitable to the job."

Mail Carrier

"I've worked for the United States Post Office for a little more than 2 years as a mail carrier/delivery. The environment is fast-paced along with working more than 12 or more hours a day but help is always offered by coworkers and management. Training is provided with help and advice to better understand the job and the best way to perform the job. Management will work with you to solve situations that you cannot solve whether if it is on the job or outside of work that will effect the task that needs to be done for example switching days off to provide childcare at home as they have helped me. Overtime is offered and the pay and benefits the company offers is great. USPS is the best company I have worked for and the longest job I have kept."
