Yes, I see. Thanks SouthernClerk.

/m13729 Not sure which way you mean your question. A NTFT clerk can be anywhere from 30-40 hours. They are considered full time. If a clerk that is PT is to be converted to FT, it requires 5 days of 8hour days for I believe 6 months.

The federal government avoids a definition of full time, but the dept of labor uses 34 or more as FT.

Hope this helps.

How many work hours does an employee need a week to be considered fulltime ?

A lot of snow headed my way. Rain to start then Blizzard like conditions beginning late Monday night through all day Tuesday....Brrrr.

The reason the Batman stamps are out is because of offices that ordered thinking they were single stamps instead of by the sheet.
One of the nice features of SFS is that you can see what other offices have in their inventory.

Lots of snow here meant a nil-bill today, the first in quite a long time.

/m13425 Yes, very nice. My customers would like them......Maybe I can get an order in :)
 The Batman stamps are gone. I settled on extra Harry Potter stamps.
I am selling the last of my flower books now so I do need the new one.
I keep the American flag stamp in the post office all the time.

Ordering through SFS was so nice. I would get my order in 2-3 days.
I have to order stamps 2x a month with my stock limit.

The Batman stamps were no longer available in SFS when I checked a few weeks ago.
I will check again for them today before I no longer have access to SFS.

Postal Bulletin has stamp info before date of issue.
Also they tell when the stamps go off sale.
But if it is a popular stamp, they probably run out of them before they go off sale.
Also depends on how cooperative your APO is, I'm guessing.

I found out today the 4 and 2 hour RMPOs will no longer be allowed to order stamps through SFS.

We have to order our stamps with a Form 17 sent to our APO who will then order the stamps on SFS for us.

It will be harder for us to keep up with the new stamps available to order.....how will we get the item numbers for new stamps ?......well, unless we will still get an automatic distribution.

I wonder how we are going to know when a stamp is no longer available from SFS.

I wonder if we will still have to order a particular quantity of a stamp like we now do in SFS.....how will we know what the minimum quantity is ?

I went to a RMPO to pick up keys to the APO and ran into an old customer of mine from another now RMPO.... where I used to OIC.....
I say...... it would be nice if I could work in all 4 of my favorite Manual RMPOs..... and be considered a career employee......I could help the USPS a lot.
No one but me and the PMRs want to work the manual offices around here.

Now eMoves is going to e1412 in the 4 hour offices and the e1412 in the 6 hour offices is different than the e1412 in the 4 hour offices......which is all different than POS ....lol.

The e1412 training for a manual 4 hr RMPO is 40 minutes long.
The e1412 training for a manual 6 hr RMPO is 2 1/2hours long.

No local mail drop for me here in my S. Jersey office but If a customer asks me to hand cancel a letter etc... and put it in a customers po box here..... I do it.

I still have my local drop, despite most people putting not so local stuff in there. Central PA removed most of theirs.

Anyone have a "local" mail drop in their office? Ours was removed, although we have customers that want their mail NOT to go out of town to assure delivery next day. Seems if we are delaying mail in plants now this would make sense to keep the "local" mail local.

Well ????? I have learned if you point out the errors, they generally get worse. We had trouble getting equipment. There was a set up to call in order and leave on recorder. We had to call five times to get an order. If we ordered double to avoid the delay . . . they would just send us 2 sacks instead of a sack full of sacks. It got worse, when I asked for plant mgmt. assistance.

We have only one L20 over a L4 and their problem is more in keeping someone in office. The PMR of 16+ years thought it best not to test for the PSE position. And so they cannot keep anyone in the office. We have upgraded L18's but they have no RMPO's. I suspect those offices will eventually go to L6's but for whatever reason we don't have much on the APO/RMPO set up as of yet in our general area.

Are they on you about your hours? Recently our PM told me they were on him about our office hours. He told me eFlash did not support the clerk hours we had. I reviewed eFlash this week and we qualify for 55-60 hrs/wk. We are down 21% in clerk hours from previous year. We have one clerk and I generally work 39-40 hours a week. I'm not sure if his comment came from a generic email slap of hand or if they specifically told him. Either that he is attempting to intimidate me because I pointed out the 15hour clause recently.
Seems everywhere you turn, whether the plant or the boss there is always someone playing games instead of trying to do a good job.
