    When your new Postmaster comes in,

    don?t ask your co-worker how long the Postmaster was in the office the previous day because the Postmaster will be giving you the evil glare at the corner of your eye. When you go to your new Postmaster's friend's post office to get hours, thumb through the mail. You don?t want...

    Opening the post office at 3am isnt

    as bad as one would think. You start alone and as each hour goes by, more people show up for work. The bundles of flats that are Periodicals and Presorted Standard is what clerks call the grunt work. Learn to love what others dont like and you will be surprised that you will...

    In the short time that I have been contacting

    you, only meeting you in person once and never working with you in the office, I am amazed that there are individuals that make a post office as small as my old office so inviting to buy stamps and ship packages. All the customers are glad that you have had the opportunity to...

    Every scan is a story,

    beginning and end. Always copy and write things down if you have to so you do not forget. Make copies for yourself and document everything. Be prepared by coming in to the office a few minutes early if you have to so you can get things ready for the day. Double-check everything...

    I first came on here thinking this was a site

    for former postal employees, so I signed up and there are all kinds of stories but not postal employee site. Why did this show that this was a site for former postal employees?

    Don?t worry about not being able to make change

    at the window, you are not a window PSE. You will get the job position because the women before you denied the offer. No, your co-worker is not the principal from the movie Matilda. Don?t be scared of her, she?s just trying to tell you the truth about the work world. Answer the...
