/m40181 I am surprised they can afford that given that the Postal Service lost $2 billion last quarter.

It's not a "Big" commemorative "dinner". It's an afternoon luncheon for current and past REC employees ONLY (no kids, spouses, etc.).

You meant that as a joke, right?

Management wants us to key as quickly, and efficiently as possible. That helps keep our cost as low as we can, and helps our long term survival as a REC.

PSE's are intended to be a flexible work force.

Would it be unfeasible for ops to ask people to key non-live mail slower during the really low-volume times of the day? I suppose most people at the REC key well above the benchmarks, so if people throttled themselves down a little bit when pars is at a trickle, could it potentially ease force outs of PSEs at least a little bit? Without -necessarily- having a negative effect on productivity?

It ebbs and flows, depending on the needs of the REC. Right now they're letting PSEs work part time if they ask, either 5 6 hour days or 4 8 hour days and giving most days off if asked. It's with the understanding though that when it gets busier PSE's will be expected to work 40 hours again.

I was a full time student and PSE for four years, and I always had to work school around work. When I first started I would go to school in the morning and work tour 3, but I always had to stay for overtime calls. Having a paper to write or needing to study isnt a "valid" reason to decline overtime, and my supervisor then told me I'd get a red mark if I decided to decline overtime.

 In the beginning they let me have a part time schedule, but that changed when they required all pses to work full time. So I was very tired, but I got through it. I switched to tour 2 after the first year I worked here and then did a lot of classes online and in the evening. I knew a guy that used to work here who worked on tour 1 and then went to school in the morning. He found a grave shift at another job, but I knew lots of people at school who worked overnights and then went to school.

The only way you get out of overtime is immediately needing to leave due to another obligation they can verify like a second job. Asking your supervisor, or the scheduler for your tour whether you can have less scheduled hours or maybe get a different shift so you can go to school during the day is the best way to go.

Thanks for the help guys. Does anyone know any PSEs at the REC who are currently going to school full time? are there many people who actually doing that? And how are they doing it?

/m40170 Breaks are always 5-10-5. Ops knows when lunches are at 3 hours that we all get an extra 10.

I would only do the "switch yourself to live mail" thing on days when ops specifically announces it.

Thanks to everyone asking and answering questions about being a new ftf! It's helpful. I also got converted and moved to tour 3...can anyone enlighten me on how to take your breaks if they call lunches at 3 hours? I haven't received a straight answer. Do you take 2 fives in a row? Doing otherwise would give you an extra ten minute break and I am unclear whether they care or if it would mess up your overall break time for the day.

 Also do they really just want you to switch yourself to live mail if we're low on pars? I'm planning on asking my new supervisor when I find out who that is.
