US Postal Service Reviews

The model of the Postal Service has quite an amazing structure. So many jobs and layers of responsibilities are needed to effectively run this service. The biggest drawback of the Postal Service is how long it takes to adapt to growth. We are approaching an era where the demand for package delivery is increasing exponentially, and we do not have the equipment to handle the volume. This is a struggle that the USPS will eventually overcome, but likely long after its competitors; Due to it's non-profit structure, contrary to the popular belief that USPS is federally funded.

Working for the Post Office can be stressful, but the pay is great. I am a letter carrier in the state of Wisconsin so it can definitely be challenging! Also in the summer, dealing with heat and keeping hydrated. I like that I have learned more about my city and also the city of Wauwatosa.
I am ALMOST off of probation and then there will be a wait to become a "regular" carrier. I really enjoy the work, but I do not enjoy worrying about being called off that day from work and hopefully, as time passes, my number won't be called on much, if at all!
