I was hired as a substitute, with the idea of working every Saturday and every other Monday, per what I was told at my interview. I was good with that, as I only needed a part time job and I could work around that at another job if needed. The postmaster that recommended me for hiring left that post office, so I was left hanging for 3 months. I was really looking forward to the job, so I waited. Finally got into orientation. Once I get to my assigned post office, I find out I don't get any guaranteed days. So, here I sit, never working. I wait to get called in. Then when I do get a day, I am on a route I have never been on and I am slow, so they frown upon my lack of speed. Now add the fact I got called in and then as I am about to head in, they call back and tell me not to bother. So, I am employed, but I don't work. What a waste of my time. Also, you are on probation for 90 WORKING days or 1 calendar year. So they can let you go at any time for no reason. With me never getting scheduled, I will hit the 1 calendar year way before 90 working days. They tell you to call other offices for hours. I have done that. I have gotten hours at other offices, but they just point and say go do that route. It is very stressful to be expected to organize mail and deliver it to over 400 addresses when you don't have a clue where you are going. Just "follow the mail" is what they tell you. Sure. Sounds easy enough. It isn't. Their equipment is outdated. Management doesn't have a clue. I don't know how they have managed to keep going this long.
