Especially for the new employee: Bid, bid, bid on lots of stuff--you will never get anything you don't bid on, and who knows what you may get if you bid on it!

But be advised that if you bid on another job and the bid list CLOSES for that job list before you are SURE you didn't get something you wanted on the cycle before that one, you will LOSE your successful bid on the previous one. Sometimes they don't post the results of a job bid because of various things that can hold up the process, so make SURE you know the results of anything you really, really wanted before the NEXT bid cycle closes with new active bids on jobs for you.

If you're ever unsure about this, give a note to union and management (check with your steward on this) stating that you want your bid(s) from the previous bid cycle that closed on xx/xx/2014 to REMAIN ACTIVE. This will keep you from losing something you want.

They typically post the bid awards at the rec sometime on the Friday after the bids close. That's also the day that the new bids will open, so if you don't get what you want this time, just keep on bidding! :)

That's good to know. Thanks for checking in, ankszz99. SLC is still hiring so I assumed we still had quite a lot more to transition.

As a new career, I have a question about the bidding process. After the bids close, how long does it take to find out if a bid is won? I know I haven't much of a chance to win an FTR position but there were many FTF positions I bid on so I will be very anxious after the bids close on Sunday to find out.

The REC is required to have a minimum of 50% careers, and can have more than that if management chooses. Of course management doesn't want more than the minimum, annie's nonsensical post notwithstanding.

I thought that there has to be a ratio of 50/50 careers and PSEs. Thats why they are converting more PSEs to FTFs because of whats goin on in Wichita and the hiring of PSEs here in SLC. At least thats what we've been told.

/m40130 The contract does not care about having a certain % of PSE's only a minimum % of careers. In other words, the union would have no objections to having 100% careers and 0% PSE's.

/m40118 anniep, I'm glad you're happy with your decision, but I feel you're a little misinformed about how SLC treats PSEs. Firstly, the contract requires a certain % of PSEs so, even if management didn't want PSEs, they wouldn't be able to control that. However, why wouldn't they want PSEs? PSEs are cheaper and can be used as needed or sent home after 2 hours if they're not needed. That's a valuable tool for management and I imagine a big reason they're in place. Secondly, the REC does what it can for PSEs including recently bringing back the trade sheet which helps PSEs get more hours in the slow times. Also, in my experience as a PSE, I could basically work any shift I wanted which is an advantage careers don't have, at least until they can get some seniority. I'm not saying I've never been angry at the inconsistency or policies I don't agree with but, really, there's many worse jobs and no job is perfect. However, had I been faced with your decision of relocation I am sure I would not have relocated for the job. I hope you were able to find something else.

Yes, I was able to become career without being let go. The "letting go" occurs when the career position is rejected. In that case it takes going thru the process again to be re-hired as a PSE.

The starting pay is $16.85. There is no pay difference between FTFs & FTRs. I told you wrong before, pse sl. I am at the top of page 4, not the bottom. I was relying on my less than reliable memory.

Whats the starting pay of an FTF? Is there a pay difference between FTFs and FTRs?

Thanks...no I am not going through liteblue. I have googled to death trying to find a number. I have contacted customer service trying to get a tech to reset my password just to be told how to set it up. Since my move, we have a new Internet carrier, I had to change my email address. So my original ecareer profile is set up under my old email addy and I tried to set up a new one under my new email addy and it has been rejected. So, now I can't even access it.

Just was grasping at straws, hoping that what everyone has been going through at the recs, thought someone might have a phone number...thanks anyway, good luck.

You're not trying to get into liteblue.usps.gov are you? That's for current employees. The general public should go to www.usps.com/careers and then click the link to login on the right-hand side. There's also a link to start your eCareer profile if you've never logged in through usps.com before.
