When I was hired, there were 9 RECs and it soon went to 6.

During my first day in Orientation, they were upfront by saying the end goal was to eventually close the SLC REC and eventually do all remaining keying at the plant. So I definitely appreciate the info and it helps to have a better understanding of the processing of the mail.

The posting is in West Sacramento. Want to know if the work is mostly done on a computer?

Woah so you DO know what we do at the REC! It always amuses me how many grizzly, disgruntled USPS employees post here who have never ever been a DCO at a REC lolololol.

Apparently COA is the most expensive platform we key so with my high speed and 0% error rate, that's the majority of what I key each day.

So fun learning more about the other areas of the USPS. Glad you both stopped by and thanks for the info!

/m43623 /m43624 Having previously worked as a DCO at the Wichita REC and as a mark-up clerk at the Wichita CFS (Computerized Forwarding System) site (both now closed, of course), and now as a clerk at one of the Wichita stations, I can tell you that DCO and mark-up jobs are similar in some ways (mainly in the way the data entry is done) but different in others.


Mark-up clerks at the handful of remaining CFS sites (there were about 30-40 when I first got there in 2009, I'm sure the number is much lower now) physically handle primarily nonmachinable UAA (undeliverable as addressed) letters and flats and, depending on the type of mail being processed and how it is being processed, forward it on, return it sender or waste it. When our site closed, we were doing machinable flats and parcels as well, but the advent of FPARS (Flats PARS) in 2016 sent the machinable flats to automation, and stations like mine do their own parcels now with RFS (Remote Forwarding System) as of 2017, so not a lot goes to CFS these days.

Probably not. We're the last remaining REC in the country. There used to be 55 of them!

Where do you work sfclk and what does a pse mark up clerk do?

No. From today it usually takes 6 months, not years.

Besides, when mgt unreasonably drags it out, arbs normally will award retro-pay as punishment.

I can't believe how many people I see parking in the car pool spaces, even though they have no passenger with them. Management needs to start enforcing the rules and towing these people's cars away. Or else get rid of the car pool spaces completely. I get just a tad bit annoyed when I'm forced to park 5 rows back and walk a mile to get to the front doors because I choose to follow the rules, and then I see a car with one person in it pull into the car pool spot, the driver gets out, and walks 20 feet to the building.

"Accused" is way too strong of a way to put it, but yeah, I guess someone wondered. Lesson learned and I'm strictly a one cubby guy from now on.

OK, I’ll bite. What happened when someone saw you remove things from 2 different cubbies? Were you accused of stealing?

No one should use more than one cubby, just out of common courtesy. They’re not so small that you can’t fit enough food for 8-12 hours. Obviously fridges are available too.

Word to the wise & PSA: Don't use more than a single cubby to store things at work! They're pretty cramped and hard to fit things in, but they're not labeled, so it can look odd when collecting your stuff from more than one cubby if you have a lot. It's an easy thing to overlook when you're rushed and just want to put something down in an empty cubby.
