Just a temporary position...
Casual Mail Handler (Volt alkalmazott) – South Bend, IN – 2016, január 17.
A typical tour/shift started at 9:30pm until 5:30am with overtime as needed.
I had 6 hours of morning orientation and then started my tour the following night.
I learned how to separate mail by zip code, sort packages by city, throw/separate skids (bundles of magazines), and prep magazines for automation.
My management was ok. I had no issues and they had no issues with me.
My co-workers were hit and miss. A lot of them have been there for years and have their own way of doing things for better or worse. I did feel like I had to pick up the slack because they would either take their time or wonder off to start a conversation with a random person to talk about the latest gossip. My teacher who showed me the ropes was great. She was one of the hardest workers there and I admired her dedication and speed getting things done.
The hardest part of the job was the hours. I'm not a night person and this was rough on me. There was also occasional heavy lifting. Some of the standard mail crates were crazy heavy! And I'd also have to say the constant standing and walking. Me pedometer said I averaged 25,000-30,000 steps a night!
Most enjoyable part of the job was going home and getting a paycheck.
I was hired on for the holiday season and then let go in ealy January.
Good breaks, Working inside, Good Paycheck
