Screwed up left out, When they say the plant is a "Totally Different Environment" they are not lying. It is true labor but time goes fast. Not bad but you will be moving. A lot like it. Enough from me. You can take tests if want to go to maintenance. Work on Equipment, Building, or Custodial. See what is available.

Closed our place few years back,2008 and we were number 1 in country. Know of 1, her and husband transferred to SLC. Believe me, USPS is tough all over. Other clerks in retail cannot even get off because there aren't any to fill in for them. Forced in on days off. You should try to move if not happy where you are at. Not saying move, move. Just try to do detail somewhere locally or try retail. Go to plant, DBs. They tell you it's a totally environment. They're not lying. But, you might like it. Look for your options. Make your Union work for you not against you. Not saying you're place exactly. But, see if somehow you can get bid information. Not there so don't know. We never knew half of what was available in Pittsburgh till to late. Their offers to us when we closed were not good. Enjoy what you have and be smart. You have to act and not wait for someone to just give you something. It's not coming. Good luck to all and glad to see there is still a REC. Worked 13 yrs one till closed

Yes, there are several fields all around us that are used for cattle, so sometimes the rec gets a manure smell blown in. Some nights we get the swamp smell from the lake. And sometimes it smells like a skunk is in the air ducts. It sucks, but it's a product of our location. There are also feral cats and raccoons in the parking lot if you are leaving or coming in really late! Scary.

Also, I would like to point out that what you think affects how you feel and what choices you make. All of these perceived injustices are of course going to make you feel negatively. But they aren't actually relevant. The only thing relevant are your needs, so are they being met? Can you use this job for whatever paycheck you need? If you have job-life/other obligation conflicts have you talked to your supervisor to see what/if anything can be done? If your needs aren't being met then obviously it's healthy to find something else.

I guess I don't really understand the mental strife aspect a few people have described . When I leave I don't give this job a second thought until I'm at work again. Because ....why?

I thought the smells were normal from being so class to the lake. Half the time it smells like there's garbage throughout the air. I've done some more digging, it appears that often when you're a mail carrier, you have SO little time for breaks, that people are peeing in a jar in their truck. Is this even legal?

I'm about ready to quit just over the overwhelming fertilizer smell penetrating the building. Tonight has been the worst it has ever been! It's nauseating! Just had to get that off my chest... Anyone feel my pain?

I'm not sure you understand where the negative is coming from but that's OK. This is your world now. I'm gone.

Good luck.

http://postalemployeenetwork.com/news/2010...c-work-environment/ It sounds like a lot of the postal expeirence is about being bullied by management. 3+1, all of your tactics on here sound like those of a bully, shouting people down, insulting them, and trying to make them feel weak for having an opinion contrary to yours.

I really think I should get out of this job, and that the only way this job would be anywhere close to being mentally tolerable is to become a supervisor or management. It sounds like other than that, anybody else is treated like shit and is broken down mentally.

Is this really the healthiest place for people to be airing out their personal insecurities? This forum is actually a little useful when folks aren't acting like 2 year olds.

Yo, calm down. I did not mean to get you this upset. I am kinda surprised a DCO would go off like this. You are now making more than enough to go get a GED in your off time.

I understand pressure. I'm retired from the Air Force. Sometimes hard to handle. Some short people can't.

Read my tongue: BLThhhhhh.

Enjoy your government welfare social security check that you receive off of me you old bat 3+1 and turn yourself into dust as soon as possible. I don't want to pay for people like you. You are dismissed.

Oh you mean your fellow wichitard who was a 30+ years old PSE still living at home with mommy and who did nothing but complain and whine on this board about anything and everything and who had his shift changed after crying his eyes out and told he wasn't being brought back from his 5 day break after that. Yep, I remember that twerp. Alot better than you do obviously.

Yo, I remember someone calling you a half of a Yoyo. They were not quite right. More like one third.

No string either.

Oh by the way genius, PSE's just get massively FORCED OUT at the SLC REC when nobody leaves early during light days and can't pay their bills and put food on the table for their family. Leads to a very disgruntled PSE. You are a very inconsiderate person 3+1.

3+1 is brain dead. Babbling about people early outing. Must be mad that others have a life while that big fat pile of excrement 3+1 has to slave away at the ol' terminal all day listening to sneezing and hacking . LOL Could you imagine having that piece of garbage as your acting supervisor? God, it's no wonder you donkeys got closed down.

1. YO. You are just an idiot. Go away.

2. mulligan, get serious. They are not trying to save the Postal Service money. They are wanting to leave early to go out drinking. Who you kidding.

biatch, with your attitude you'll not last long. Great job? Not really. Good job with good pay? Yes. If you don't want it I bet somebody else does.

I've been retired for a couple of years from the Wichita REC. Keyer, acting supervisor and group leader. I know your job. I know how boring it could be. I just don't understand how some will constantly bitch and stay. Or go home early with every chance.

In 1994 I sit in on a meeting when we discussed what kind of employee we were probably going to get. We concluded turnover rate was going to be high. Holy Crap, we were right. People like Yo.

What we found out that as people worked for several years, stats went down. By 65 they could not hit 7,500 KPH. We had employees over 65 that appeared to key as fast as they could and was around 4000 KPH. So beware. You will not have this job at 70.

I'll start thinking about that once you show me a flow chart with complete transparency about where all the money is flowing. The "grateful for a job" mantra got old 3 years ago. Is it a decent paying job? Yes. Is it a great job that others should be jealous of? Not even close.
