I had worked at the plant as a clerk from 1998-2002 and never had problems with supervisors in the 4 1/2 years I worked there. When I started back in 2014 as a city carrier assistant for almost 2 years. The position was ok. You had to be an assistant until you were hired in as a career regular. That would take a couple years. Until then you were treated with no respect. We worked many many hours. Did routes that the career regulars didn’t want or when they were on vacation. There were a few supervisors that were nice to work with but my manager was a horrible mean boss. I complained about him to the postmaster and he was her friend and then after that I didn’t get treated to well. Needless to say. Management and my union reps were horrible. The union reps were on the side of management.

Pros and Cons
If you liked working a lot that was the job for you.
Don’t trust management or your union representatives.

Some of the rudest, most incompetent managers in existence will make every single second of what should be a straightforward and simple job into an absolute nightmare of confusion and idiocy. Inability to get the mail carriers their mail and/or packages until late into the day, broken equipment, dangerously underserviced vehicles, unrealistic and impossible standards, complete disorganization and constant arguing can and will prevent anyone with the ability to do this job from actually doing it.

Pros and Cons
There are no positives.
Up to sixteen hour days, up to seven days a week.

At first I was very excited about working for USPS, but then as time went on, it was not worth it. Supervisors would harass the new people that came in. They would talk to them badly, not giving any support. Follow us around on our routes, calling us on our personal phones and not calling us on the company phone which they were suppose to do. We missed lunches/ break times, which by law we're supposed to take. I went to my Union Rep. He told me he was not going to do anything, because he was retiring in 6 months. I felt no support/ help by no one. Not even my terminal manager.

Pros and Cons
Not all Supervisors are like these.

You are forced to work 6 days a week 10-12 hours per day. The attendance policy is very strict so if you have something unexpected come up no matter how important or you are sick, unless you have FMLA it is counted against you. You do not get sick leave until you make career which is after working there 2 years. Communication between management and employees is the worst I have ever seen. Communication between management can even be non existant basically.

Pros and Cons
The pay is very good
Poor management, long hours, two faced management and employees

Being a clerk was fun when helping customers. I enjoyed greeting them and providing services. The job as a clerk entailed more than just greeting and servicing customers and that was sorting packages. This was difficult as you had to lift heavy packages, sort them into containers before 8:00 am. And sometimes you had only 5 minutes to get ready to open the window for customers.

Pros and Cons
Great salary and benefits. Nice co-workers, advancement opportunities
Work life balance. You worked 6 and sometimes 7 days a week.

Working at the postal service was a nightmare. The management, supervisors, and my coworkers were, for the most part, incompetent and abusive, rude and unhelpful (most of the time), and dishonest. Everyone lied to me and treated me like dirt. I had no work-life balance and was constantly stressed out. Everything I did on the job was wrong and I was always rushed and pushed to do more. I worked in old buildings that are hardly updated. It was the worst job I ever had and I regret every minute of it. If you want to get your foot in the door working for the federal government, don't go here unless you want to be in a toxic, unprofessional environment filled with nothing but lies. Despite the 10 year plan implemented 2 years ago, I doubt the unprofessionalism and toxic work environment will ever change for the better.

I am looking to find a career in UX/UI design. This seems really intriguing to me with the design and layout of web applications and mobile apps. I also feel like since I’m in the Cary area it is very tech heavy down here so I would have better opportunities in this field

The positions that I held then are today referred to as PSE's, rather than casuals. Over (10) years ago I worked temporarily as a Holiday Seasonal (Prior to Christmas through New Year's Day and possibly up until February or March) As a PSE, you may have opportunities to become permanent. The workplace environment can be considered a mixed bag of difficult and very friendly co-workers (including management).

Pros and Cons
Opportunity to move up by bidding on open positions and the work is a great service to our nation.
Some employees, including management, have little bedside manner or mature social skills.

Like any job, this place has positives and negatives. A negative is that the route is timed. After training, you are paid only for that time. If you are running a six hour route, you only get six hours pay, even if it takes six-and-half. And during the heavy season like Thanksgiving to Christmas, it often does. A positive is that you also have a slow season where you may finish the route in five-and-a-half hours, so it balances out. I was there part-time for ten years. I would still be working there if I had not had a work accident that left me disabled.

Pros and Cons
You always know what you will be doing, but every day is different. You do not get bored.
The biggest con is that you may work part-time for years before a full time spot becomes available.

I worked there during the holiday season overnights, which meant dealing with hundreds and hundreds of packages every shift. It was stressful because you have a timed goal to have everything done by, but your shift goes by fast. As long as you can keep up and don't mind the hours, it's a great job with great pay. I wasn't there long enough to take advantage of the benefits offered, but from what I was told, they're not that bad. There was your typical office drama and politics, but just do your job and you should be fine.

Pros and Cons
The experience, the pay, and the hours.
Some office politics at times, but if you just do your job, they can be ignored.

The regular postal carriers would call out and the subs would have to cover the down route plus their own. The post office does not train properly on routes. Your schedule would change constantly without warning. You would sometimes go weeks without a day off (you HAD to work sundays). You were forced to go to a completely different post office and expected to do their route by yourself even if you have never been to that are before.

Pros and Cons
The money
No work-life balance, long days, no days off

There was no job interview. Did not know that the job was only part-time until hired. I had to fight to get paid and prove I went through the training, even thought I would not be in the local Post Office if I did not train, because that is when you get our badge. You don't get time counted to your years of service for retirement until you actually get a route. During training, the trainer stated all the "games" Post Master at the office would pull and my Post Master lived up to it all. Unless you are young and willing to give up some freedom, don't apply. The vehicles are seriously dangerous, as well.

Pros and Cons
The retirement could be good.
Everything else.

Unprofessional environment. The way the place was supervised was unorganized also the managers spoke to people in a very unprofessional manner. Using foul language when they got frustrated with employees. Firing people because of personal feelings.

Pros and Cons
Great benefits and pay
Unprofessionalism, no room for growth,

This was one of my life dream jobs that was cut short due to continued harassment from management and staff. Seven women started with me, and all seven ended up leaving.

Pros and Cons
The financially good job to have
The theory of too many women together makes a jobs stressful. Invest in headphones.

I used to work at United States Postal Services back in Guam as an assistant clerk. I was so nervous at first but after I got used to the flow of how things were running in there, I actually felt lighter of my worries and actually enjoyed doing what I did. It is a fast paced environment but I wouldn't change it. I learned a lot of new things and made good friends along the way.

Pros and Cons
Good pay, hardworking coworkers, friendly environment
No parking space

Work long hours every day with little to no support. No accountability for the regular carriers, they call off constantly and leave you to pick up their slack.

Pros and Cons
Off early in the summer
Long winters, little to no life outside of work.

You receive a paper and fill it out, if someone already has a certain day then seniority matters (or you can beg the person who has it already).
