"Overall, working for the Post Office is a great career but it would be very difficult for those who have families. The Post Office demands a lot of your time esp. if you work at the distribution center."

"This company is top notch in terms of racial diversity, gender diversity is not necessarily pushed here but the union is a wonderful resource if the going gets rough. I was never negatively affected by management for being female, but you do have men that have been working for the company for many, MANY years that like to try and put the "lady-folk" in their place.

"If the members of management were required to take a basic communications and management course I believe that conditions within USPS facilities would improve drastically. Most members of management are hired based on seniority rather than know-how. "

"At headquarters, it's a good work/life balance, but they reward tenure. There are no maternity benefits, but you can use annual/sick leave to take up to 12 weeks under FMLA. If you haven't been with the company long, you don't have many options. They treat women as equals here, but the system is set up so the main way to get promoted is switching groups or positions. If you like your role, it's hard to get a promotion within that role."
