FWD - I agree about stock being zero or low but OIC never did grasp importance of keeping stock. Every month we ran out and now she has been promoted to PM at another office. Transfer is not until next week but she is mentally checked out of this office and either off or in the new office mostly. She just checks in on occasion . . . basically she is gone.

Lenny - with a pile of letters to be weighed, try going to prepaid screen. Top dynakey activates scale. You can quickly put letter on to get weight, one after the other. I will scale the letters, place in stack of differing postage and hand back to customer with correct stamps. Avoids all that inputting zip code stuff. I have sold a lot of .21 and .70's this way.
A lot of the time I can get stamps to customers, they put on while I punch in flats or parcels they have.

I had 5 Express go out today, surprisingly none were tax related. Normally only have one or 2 at the most, but 5 today, 4 yesterday and 5 one day last week was a lot for me.

Seems like Easter compounded the Tax rush this year. All the "weigh this....postmark that....need 3 stamps for my taxes...." made for a lot of workload that is not reflected in the revenue numbers. I got to the point where I simply had the small scale on my counter to weigh letters instead of typing in the zip, hazmat so many times.

Ebayers have been very slow this past month.

Running out of stock??? Not good SouthernClerk.
 
I did an emergency stock order the day after I ordered my regular order this month and it seems like all is working out great with sales and I am within my stock limits as of today.

So many tax forms going out today and a lot of them certified......I sold 2 more Express :)

I am not sure which brought us the most revenue . . . Uncle Same or the Easter Bunny? WIR thru the roof yesterday 2882 (all by myself). Today I was to tired to even look at the WIR (again by myself) Out of rolls, tomorrow will be out of most books . . . could be interesting.

Okay load leveling supposedly started, we had LOTs of mail.(probably 3x as much as Thursday??) Truck late, I curtailed mail. Box mail supposed to be up by 11 . . .hmmm? not today, I finished at 3. WIR was 800 more then normal.
I was provided no help. OIC in her soon to be office and of course, had help. I knew it was going to be this way until they transfer PM back in. Guess next week will be crazy too. Ahhh . . . but Al is short after that. Count down is on.

Probably best to do what FWD suggests, seems it is handled differently all over. It has changed in past year for us also, as OIC had to get credit card and our cleaner had to get paypal to get paid.
District maint. Mgr. provided the hours worksheets (? form #) and then I plugged in numbers. At the time I had to write two seperate contracts. One for outside yard work and one for cleaning bldg.
I even used a neighboring PMs recent contract to write up justification.

Even after completed POOM killed request as he did not agree with hourly rate. I had 5 bids? No one wanted to strip and wax floor for the ceiling fee. POOM agreed to get that done seperately. Nine months later that happened and now janitor thinks she is not required to wax at all??

/m12986 I have renewed several cleaning contracts with the help of the Contract Tech at District.
Our Contract Tech also processes our QT Housekeeping report.

Maybe you have someone at District that can walk you through it Lenny.
Every office over here works with the Contract Tech to set up contracts.
See if you can find the old contract papers. You will use a lot of the same information when you do the off catalog req.

Soon my cleaning contract will be up for renewal and my APO PM was just asking me about the process because this year he will have to renew it with the Contract Techs help.

Has anybody here ever renew a cleaning contract? How do you go about it? I have a powerpoint that I read, just have to figure the rest out.

We are going to load leveling next week. It can only help, because my weeks are very lopsided. Right now I get 5-6 feet of flats and 2 feet the rest of the week, not counting boxholders. DPS is the same way- anywhere from 1500-2000 Monday and 700 the rest of the week.

Credit down was a national thing today, I didn't lose any sales fortunately. All the customers had another option, and one simply came in later on.

Too many small nuisance transactions, 3 letters at a time weighing each one out.

We've had problems with credit/debit for two days in a row. Short outages but still . . . some customers just do not have cash or checks, so we lost sales and aggravated customers.

Its probably to early to really see a difference but we certainly haven't seen an improvement on "load leveling". Today OIC came back to help out in office and we had little mail to work. The day before I worked by myself and did my own load leveling and culled standard to meet SPMS scans.

The new credit card machine is installed and ready to use. The crazy thing was that no instructions for installation or operation were included with the cc machine. The instructions were online in an email.

I know of a RMPO that still uses the old postage scale.
I wonder why the APO doesn't correct that.
