/m13649 Good to see you here Lenny.

Same old Same old over here.
I'm getting plenty of hours as a PSE..... just as many as I got when I was OIC.....the only difference is now I work in 2 offices instead of one.
I do get a little AL but I have to work 6 days a week.
I do as much work as the NTFT in the 6 hour offices.... but I don't get paid vacation and health insurance like they do....oh, I think they get a uniform allowance too.
I am not complaining..... because I am thankful to get the hours and to be left alone to run my office.

I sold 2 PExpress yesterday in my little 4 hour office :)

I had a customer request the new Migratory Duck stamp today but it will be weeks before I can get any stamps from my APO.....but the APO office OIC will get me some he said.

Trying to catch up on things here. Have a lot of personal issues going on, so I haven't been here as much as I would like.

I don't know of any PMRs left in our area but there was an email sent out requesting APO's to contact POOM if they had any this past week. So it appears something was brewing. We've been short for a long time for clerk help. There is a push to fill a few PTF positions, which I suspect will be for PSE's that have been utilized in areas they shouldn't have been in the first place.

Good for you to stand your ground with carrier.

Our office has been approved for another PTF. PM hasn't shared this info, but I've heard from neighboring PM.
Its so strange. PM can't work over 15. Those 15 hours justify my being converted to full time and yet they want to hire another PTF (more benefits to pay out). So they would basically cut my hours to share with another PTF at a greater expense and let PM sit around even moreso???
I'm so glad I am on the down hill of my career, as logic continues to be shoved out the door.
Meanwhile I worked the office by myself this week and really enjoyed (PM on AL). I don't wish ill will on anyone, but sure wish the result of the extra PTF would mean they are preparing for PM to be removed from office, but think that won't happen till next year.

All of the PMRs around here have been let go.
We have a lot of offices looking for clerk help. I guess this is happening everywhere.

I had a new non career rural carrier....RCA??......try to order me around when was distributing the "sales papers" to her section at the APO yesterday.....:).......she has ordered the regular carriers around....and they have gotten mad after the fact.

The regular carriers were listening in....and I knew it.

APO OIC,who was out on vacation, Thanked me today for working.... in All CAPS.....in an email.

A NTFT clerk from a nearby office was at the APO office too.
She said I was working too hard; I guess because I was sweating a little and my face was red; she said I should take a break and I agreed.

Anyway, it all seems to have worked out for the best.
The regular rural carriers all have respect for me....for standing up to the new carrier.
The APO OIC seems to appreciate what I have done for him with my work.

So much more I could do.
But I like my own little office and all my customers.
I do love to help out every other little office I can.

My APO office should be Audited in the same way my RMPO office is.....if not more.

I help out some at the APO....like today.
I wonder if there is a preference list with the sale papers......we do have to scan some in when delivered.....we are given 2 days.
The reason I am wondering is because 3 regular carriers took out a sales paper I gave them to deliver and 2 "non career" (which I think is BS) carriers would not take them out of the office for delivery.
I guess in this instance.......you get what you pay for.

Oh. btw....the carriers had 2 sets of sales papers.....and it was like...deliver one or the other.....or both at the APO.

/m13641.....I noticed in MY PO that the APO office checks on it..... even though I do it too.
So my guess is that the APO office is being made to take over some of the RMPO check in things....Maybe to save time at the RMPOs.......but I tell you.....things are different from day to day in my RMPO so this one extra thing for an APO do do will not add but a minute or two saved time for my RMPO.

I had someone from the Area... Marketing ....located in PA call me twice yesterday to see how I answered the phone..... :)

Waiting to hear back from the POOM on a off catalog expense & Audit.....I underlined the process to the POOM.....the Auditor gave me the process....after the POOM..... to be approved by Finance next......I need this completed before the end of the fiscal year.
I hope the POOM OKs it and sends it on to Finance for approval.

Lenny or anyone else that might know, do you know anything about "gatekeeper"? Our PM was told by POOM to start doing this and PM didn't seem to be very pleased. Said he had do perform some check in work after the office closed or something to that effect.

/m13635 I can't agree with "As far as the sharing of a PW goes, I guess if PM/OIC gives it to you then it is ok with the USPS". Each individual needs to take responsibility for themselves. Not your PW, don't use it. And the USPS is NOT okay with sharing of PW's.
/m13638 I like your suggestion about applying for access and if denied, there is a record of being denied.

Present PM is big on not sharing info or providing access to sites to the extent he doesn't have a back up person when on leave. I'm okay with that. When PM is on leave they are calling the office advising I need to get this or that done. And I can only say, sorry I don't have access.

I would email said PM/OIC and ask if they have taken the training. You can apply for access you don't need PM/OIC to do it for you. If your access is denied there is a permanent record of your request in eACCESS. If it's not approved you should not have access and shouldn't be logging into the program.
I have worked for the PO for quite sometime. I have yet to see a RMPO that the training can't be done. Yes when you are a new employee it is difficult to be efficient and find the time to get everything done.
