Dear Fed up: Maybe they are doing this so that customers will go to staples. In the Northeast it seems like they aren't filling vacancies to fast either.

District in San Antonio won't do their job , and fill vacant slots. How many years does it take to get a clerk hired, why do Postmasters have to pay retired clerks out of their pockets just so they have someone to work the window. OR keep the window closed during hours of operation because they are short handed. CEN TEX personal department isn't doing their job !!!!!!

Yes, it does add to wait time in line, and the only place it's designed to help is in distribution to the carriers. They can now bring anyone in to work parcels, the machine tells them who to throw it to when they scan it. Bye Bye to qualified clerks in the back end of the office.

RJ you are so right. You can not make up a customers time in line. Some of these post offices have few customers so it is gravy for them; it's pretty evident by SouthernClerk's remarks that they have time to screw around and do this. It is also obvious that the PO as a whole does not care about the customers or they would not let 1 clerk alone for an hour while the other 4 go to lunch when there is a line out the door. My advice would be get out as soon as you can, or transfer to a place you can scratch your butt because you have no customers. It only takes 5 seconds is something management would say, and we all know how they LIE>

We don't have an overtime desired list in our office. We have 2 regulars and 1 ptf. It's never been an issue before, but we have a new OIC.

Are you on the overtime desired list?

I'm a full time regular clerk. Our PTF is on annual. Can they legally bring a PTF in from another office to work my NS day without asking me to work? I've never had this problem before and can't find a straight answer.

It seems like you do spend some time and a lot of effort on doing this amazing work at your site. I have bookmarked it and will come back soon. Thanks! lesen

RJ that 5 secs to add a street address at the POS will most definitely be made up in processing and distribution. Anyone working the counter is capable of providing service. Our customers come first, sorry to hear yours do not. I am not counting beans at the counter, I provide a service to my customers. Lines are part of the job, even moreso due to staffing and not so much due to that extra 5 secs to input more data to expedite delivery.

Southern you dont make up service in processing. Lines are lines. It WILL increase lines no doubt. WE ARE or were a service organization. Now we are bean counters. Customers come last.Most of th packages that are brought to our office are correct. Errors in the plant.

Clerks and carriers both have taken on more responsibility through the years. It certainly requires the clerk to be more accurate. It is not uncommon to receive a package from plant that does not belong to our location, only to find clerk typed in wrong zip (which caused the missent).

New positions? I would not hold my breath. Our office has worked short a clerk for years and all signs show they want it to be even less.

They just keep adding more responsibilities and not adding any new positions for window clerks. Even though the input will help the delivery process the customer will have to wait in line even longer then they already do.

It may cause a slight increase in window time for customers but it will be made up in processing and in distribution. If anything, if I were a carrier, I would be concerned. As a window clerk, it adds to the job security.

If you haven't noticed, USPS is moving to a package delivery company. Its a very smart move.

a system that was made to speed the process of customer service.

I kind of doubt that part. I imagine it was designed by accountants, for accountants, to make the accounting easier for them. Just going by the results, anyway.

Thats right RIKSNY 63 days and its ALL yours!! Do you even have a POS at your office or do you not have any customers. The people here who have busy windows know this is a rediculous addition to a system that was made to speed the process of customer service. Now the POS is no better than the IRT was. What a waste!!! Its good to see your still The smart ass you have always been on here RIKSNY.
