    JP Morgan Chase - IRS processing payments as Mail Clerk

    Mail Clerk (Current Employee) Louisville, KY (US)

    ProsJob is great. Opening up mail, handling tax payments with 1040 tax return. Cameras all around to help keep honest people honest.

    ConsThey call you in when it is your day off. You can decline or go in even though it is your day off. Third shift is Midnight - 8am but you have to check-in by 11:45pm and then clock-in at 11:54pm. You are subject to a search at any time after you get off the floor.

    The staff is very helpful and will assist you in finding a job that is right for you.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey will not place you in a job that you do not qualify for and they match your strengths to find the best job for you. I you have any questions they can help answer them so you can feel comfortable in any job they place you in. Sometimes its nice having a pay check weekly.

    ConsSometimes getting a check weekly can be hard, put is not difficult to adjust to.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
