USPS named one of nation’s best employers

The Postal Service has been named one of the nation’s best employers in a survey of 50,000 U.S. workers.

Forbes magazine partnered with market researcher Statista to identify the organizations in each state and Washington, DC, that employees most favored and would likely recommend to others.

USPS ranked second on the list behind the U.S. Department of Defense. Workers in 28 states named the Postal Service a best employer.

Other employers in the top 10 include Marriott International, Target, JPMorgan Chase and UnitedHealth Group.

Respondents were asked to rate, on a scale of 0-10, how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. They were also asked to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.

The survey indicates having a mission employees believe in is key to a company being considered one of the best places to work.

“Service — it’s part of our name. We are here to serve and support our communities,” Jeryl Wilson, the Postal Service’s diversity and talent acquisition director, told Forbes.

Job opportunities were also cited in the report as a reason workers thought favorably of the Postal Service, which offers more than 2,400 career paths.

Said Wilson: “There are great opportunities for growth, development and advancement within our organization — those are the things that I think are important for employees to know about.”

How did they come up with that who the heck did they ask?

I know right?
They obviously haven’t seen the employee surveys


I know they did not ask rural carrier

Impossible.They must have surveyed 3 people high in management.

you are right!

They really didn’t talk to me

Theres only growth and advancement for those whos superiors think worthy. They pick & choose. (Kinda like brown nose effect)

Now ask about their service

Probably could have been at one point. Their management couldn’t manage in the private sector. They would all have been suited a long time ago.

Lies lies lies lies lies lies lies

Ask those who have been hurt on the job and been fighting to be compensated by work comp, management lies and delay tactics to sabotage your workmans compensation. Management intentionally does not file a claim injury to OWCP for over 4 mths while you suffer in pain, and our treated like you are milking the system. Then you almost lose everything you own fighting to be paid. USPS management and OWCP are a joke, and get away with screwing your claim with nowhere to turn for help and get away with it.
