I just completed my training.
3 nights in class computer e learning in a windowless room at the back of a depot for 8 hours each night with a sarcastic trainer that obviously did not care about us, then a 'tour day' starting at 7:45a.m. of 8 hours riding along with a letter carrier that wasn't thrilled to have to take someone along on their route slowing them down, then 3 more nights of e learning..followed by 5 days of 'on the job' training where you are paired with a letter carrier who, if you are lucky, won't be angry at you for slowing them down while trying to learn what to do at depot and on the street. After working for 5 days,you are back at the classroom for 8 hours to do a 40 question exam and then the sortation test (sorting 120 letters into a sortation case)where you are allowed ONE mistake..or guess what? You are fired. People were fired.
If you pass, you then have 8hours of Human Rights training followed the next day by 8 more hours of training with the union rep.
We were supposed to then have 5 days of 'onboarding'..which is shifts out on the street delivering on your own..but guess what?
It was taken away from us because it was deemed that we might be taking hours away from current employees.
So now we are 'on call'..sitting at home every day waiting for a call to work.
Have never worked with a company where everyone was so miserable and unwelcoming to new recruits. Definitely felt like everyone is out for themselves.
I have retired and would very much like to apply, but have never had an interview, is it because you do not hire older folks?
In my training class I had 5 retired people hired. Usually around September they seek casual on call people of all races and ages.
The turnover for RSMC (Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers) is huge - so if you have a vehicle, and show up to your interview - you are hired.
Can someone explain how the on-call process works for Seasonal Postal Clerks? What if you can't work at midnight?
They hire several seasonal workers and if yopur are unable to take the shift they move on to the next person on the list.
How long do they give you for training for a delivery driver and sorting on the board
Not enough; Trial by fire. In fact, I was the only candidate that passed the timed sortation test during training. Everybody was still hired because they are desperate for more bodies. Everyone with any sense is transferring or quitting, or already holds down a route that is easy to perform. Don't think this will be you. Seniority is a thing, and the people holding these routes have decades on you.
