A day would consist of not knowing what you are going to get into that day. Only in the morning as you walk in you will find out your work load and how much can you take and how much can you leave behind even tho you don't know if tomorrow is going to be lite or even heavier to add to. The management helps by assigning assistance to the carriers who might need it (there is only a certain number of helpers, so not everyone will get help), yet at the same time needs to makes sure everyone takes all what they can take.
58+ miles on a rural route, over 300 stops, and you have to get it all done and get back to the Post Office by 3:00 PM. Saints forbid you have to deliver mail during a holiday season! Be ready to fail a LOT. Be ready to endure your supervisor breathing down your neck a LOT.
