1) A typical day included preparing my assigned route properly, and in a time efficient manner. Then loading my vehicle and proceeding to my section of town and delivering the route.
2) What I have learned is about work efficiencies, time standards and most of all, customer service.
3) Management is currently in a quandry due to Congress passing the PAEA which mandates that the Postal Service pay $5.5 billion into a reserve acccount for employees not even hired yt. Many have called this a naked political attack on the Service to make it go into default to privatize it.
4) My co-workers are far and away the most vocationally driven group of people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Their exemplary efforts to prevail with the core mission is heart warming and professional. I would hope to work with a group such as this in the future.
5) The hardest part of the job in the last few years has been conflicting orders and policies from upper management that have reduced staffing to the point where the regular workforce is working 8 to 14 hours a day on an everyday basis. Due to the duration of these policies the morale and "gung ho" of the workforce has been depleted and the efficiency and productivity been reduced substantially.
6) The most enjoyable part of the job is when we are able to help each other out and when we are able to resolve customer issues ourselves, or contribute towards that end.
vocational attitudes toward the job, and talking to customers in the street that appreciate our dedication.
political interference that contributes to disharmony
