I know several people who work for the USPS and they all hate their jobs. Why does it seem that such a disproportionate number of employees hate working for the postal service?
I have been working as an RCA for several months, and just recently began working as a casual clerk as well. I sort of remember something about being able to apply for other jobs after 90 working days, but I am not real sure. Can I begin to apply for career positions anywhere in the postal service? Or am I limited to certain ones? Thanks in advance.
I am interested in becoming a rural carrier associate for the postal service---I currenty work for FedEx Express and am interested in making a career change---is rural carrier associate a good way to get in the door of the post office or is it a miserable grunt job with low pay and no hope?
I recently returned home from Afghanistan to return to my regular job at the post office. For years, I was a Clerk. When I was initially hired, I decided to be a clerk due to a disability that I acquired while I was on Active duty in the Army. Thus, the post office hired me while I was a Service- connected disabled Veteran. I told them during my interview that I suffered from an open-bone fracture that resulted in me having screws and plates in my leg. At the time of my surgery, my physician stated that I may suffer from painfull arthritis, swelling, and soreness periodically as I get older. Thus, I find it bothering me when I stand up for long periods of time and when I try to walk for exercise, I suffer from a throbbing pain that's only worstening. Nevertheless, when I was working as a clerk (the position I was hired for) I rarely suffered the pains that I feel right now. This is because when I returned to my job from Afghanistan, I was told that I am no longer a clerk and my job is to Carry Mail (ako a Mail Man). It's been a week since I went out on the streets in my attempt to carry letters to customers. However, my foot has been giving me problems each morning. It feels numb and very sore for about 2 hours. Earlier today, I couldn't move it. The post office is undergoing crucial business changes to save money, and I do understand its condition. So I am not the type of Employee to complain to my Superviser about my foot (which was confirmed as a Service-Connected disability) hurting. Nevertheless, it is starting to impact my performance negatively and it is getting worse because last night I suffered from restless-leg syndrome. My question is............was it ok for the post office to move me from one section to another without notice? The post office hired me as a clerk who has a permanent Service connected disability in his leg. Can they force me to be a Letter Carrier, which clearly violates my Military medical profile against foot-marches, climbing, high-impact activities and running? Finally, there are other clerks who were hired after me who have remained in their Section....this makes them Junior to me. Is it legal for the postal service to place me under the circumstances that I am in now?....If not?....what should I do ?

I applied for a PSE clerk (postal support employee), i received a email to take the exam and passed it with a good score, about three weeks ago! I just received a email for a pre-interview app this Tuesday, and it says if further consider i will take a drug and background test which i know i will pass! I would like to know what questions should i expect to be asked. Is the interview hard enough to stress over??
I'm doing some research for a paper and I need to know the different types of jobs to do with criminals, I know there are the obvious police officers, private investigators, undercover police officers but what are the less known jobs out there? And what do they do?
That is how long do they keep the name lists open for each job in the postal service?
Postal Service is one, I think. Any others?
The government used to have something called a PACE test.
Professional and Administrative Career Exam or something like that. I don't think this test is used any more. What happened to it?
Wghat is the job and how much does it pay and what is required to be that said profession?
I'm in my third year and its a bit late to turn back now but, after years of thinking I don't think I can go threw with being a cop, even though I have wanted to for a long time.

I was asked on the form to fill out...
"Why Are You Applying For This Employment Opportunity?"
As An Mail Clerk (post Office)?
What is a good answer that the people hiring me would like to hear?
Really, the first step, is there someone to call for the test or an application or what?
I went for an interview for a postal clerk position and about three weeks later I recieved a letter in the mail stating they were not filling that position at this time. There were three veterans ahead of me on the list ( one a woman) but I have spent a year as a clerk ( not currently with the postal service-trying to get back in). Has anyone ever had this happen to them and what was the reason????? Thanks for all help. I have no veterans points.
And are there any receptionist/desk jobs? Please list as many careers in this field that you know of and that are HIGHLY beneficial!
I had an interview last week on Thursday. The interview went great and I also went through exam, background check and drug test. During the interview the manager says she needs an Ok from HR.

There have been rumors and comments by different country's officials such as Cuba and France that hundreds of thousands of government officiated jobs will be laid off. If all this comes through there will be millions without jobs. Will this trigger a mass recession? Is it time to invest in commodities, would a commodity e.t.f. also do the job in recession?
I recently was offered a job as a PSE Clerk, and I've read a lot of negative reviews about working for the post office stemming from poor management to harsh working conditions. I'm wondering if all this is true or are these people just disgruntled workers? I have a job right now, but it doesn't pay well, and I havfe no benefits.
