I have been working as a Rural Carrier Associate for the past 5 years, which means I am a substitute whenever someone else is out. I have been averaging about two days a week. I love everything about the post office, except for the lack of work. I will eventually become a regular, but that could take years. In the meantime, I have afamily to feed.
Once your in, it’s hard to quit! The management is incompetent everywhere! They treat you like slaves! The benefits are good but that’s if you make it to them considering you have to move up a seniority list that takes at least 21/2 years of torture before you reach the top.
