This is the main problem.

The people who are willing to work for 15$ an hour are more than likely not eligible for federal employment. They have to be able to pass a drug/background check. Not be a felon etc. So the people that were eligible were thin then they had to weed out more.

Some people coming from minimum wage jobs have a record or do drugs so they aren't eligible for the job. Most people who have a clean record could more than likely find a trade or college or other state/federal service/military.

You get what you pay for.

InNH what do you expect for $15 an hour? You get what you pay for.

I did a route on my string the other day after a newbie (6 mos) did it for a few days. I picked up 2 misdelivered parcels and several misdelivered magazines, along with some interesting notes from the customers.

The post office has been scraping the bottom of the barrel for employees for over a year now. You can only scrape the bottom of the barrel for so long before there is nothing left.

The retention rate is dismal. Some type of postal management were handing out CCA flyers at a halfway house. Let me say that again. Postal management is so desperate that they are recruiting employees at halfway houses.

This is what you get when you cut good employees pay by 30% The good and experienced TE's quit and you have a revolving door of rejects making $15 an hour for a job that should be paying you over $20

PMG, it would be cool if you read it here first, but I could see someone with a great sense of humor (with a disclaimer to the hardworking CCAs) make a humorous CCA recruitment video about how you select your own hours, deliver what you want to and maybe get the supervisor to load your vehicle or something silly like that. But your stories are TRUE! That is where the humor is. Actually, that first recruitment video was a joke when the CCA said you go "at your own pace".

Brutalhonesty, thanks for putting that info. for others to read.
Everyone else, your CCA self-scheduling feedback is interesting and I would have been fired, too, as a PTF, if I had pulled some of that stuff.

Yeah, who needs a work ethic anyway?

We have one CCA refused to deliver 5 heavy boxes to a customer on the 2nd floor. He left a notice. It was a business address and the customer called to complain. The supr ordered him to redeliver them with another CCA helper. He was smoking cigarette at the loading dock as I was leaving. The supr came out furiously and asked him why they haven't left to deliver the parcels. She was going to fire him. He said that he might hurts his back because of the weights and going up to the 2nd floor. I immediately explained to him that our requirement is to lift up 70#s. That, the supervisor can give him a fitness for duty. If he failed to lift the requirement, he would be fired for not fit for duty. If he hurts his back when lifted the requirement weight, he would be fired for failure to follow instruction from working safe. If he could lift the requirement weight, he would be fired for failure to follow a direct order. He caught the wind and took off to the delivery. What a dumba$$! The supr was nice enough to give him a helper to do a one man job. In fact, it was overtime for them. If it was some other supr we had before, then he would be looking for another job. I really don't understand these newbies.

might just be certain offices that allow cca's to report when they want are having a hard time keeping cca's. hope not. someone should inform the mpoo.

If I had told my boss when I was a PTF that I would show up when I felt like it, I would have been out looking for another job the next day as well..

PMG-is it the CCAs dictating when they will work based on their "assumed importance" or is it simply the millennial generation expecting that the world will just entitle them to special privileges?

Cali to Colo /m3446 Come to my station and you will see the CCAs dictate their availability to come to work. Some on a hold down and come in whenever they want. I witnessed the supervisor called and begged the CCA to come in on time. The starting time on the route is 7:30 and this guy showed up at 8:30 AM.

One CCA told the supervisor that he might be able to come in at 10 AM the next day, when the supr wanted him to come in at 7:30 AM. If I did that when I was a PTF, I would have been done.

/m3446 if it is true it goes against section 665.4 Attendance of the ELM. because what if all of the sudden they were scheduled in on a day when they are to work at the other job.

a good union steward would have a field day if any other employee were to be disciplined for working at another job. and I have seen people call in to work at another job get discipline.

so I do not believe management will permit it.
