I love that our trucks arrive on time and we’re not wasting time “waiting “

Not to many specifics

All leftist propaganda. At my post office no mails is piling up at all. When the new PMG took over They said no more throwing Amazon after 8:00 a.m. and that has resulted in the mail getting out quicker and more efficiently. Prior to that we were slaves to Amazon. If Amazon showed up at 7:59 the carriers all stood around and waited, holding up first class mail, while they threw the Amazon pallets.

You are Spot on !!!! This guy has inherited a train wreck , things had hit rock bottom. Glad someone is finally getting something done..

All leftist propaganda??

You are evidently really out of touch with things. I do alot of business online and all packages, first class and priority, are extremely late. Sent from one facility to another over and over, back and forth, or not getting tracking scanned at all.

The last two predessesors did nothing to move the USPS forward WELCOME Mr. DeJoy a whole lot of us look forward to working with you to make things better for all of us that work here. Thank you for accepting the challenge. If your office is run poorly there should be changes made or we’ll all be in a different line of business. Wake Up we have been close to doom for long time. Again THANK YOU to Mr. DeJoy!

We are waiting on Amazon daily in our office. DeJoy is the worst thing to happen in my 32 years.
