You need to fill out the travel expense forms online at the post office.

After postal academy I submitted my travel reimbursement paperwork. After no check for a long time I asked about it and they said that my paperwork was "lost". I refiled again(luckily I made copies)and signed everything in the Postmaster's office. It has been five weeks and still no check. The Postmaster told me that the check would arrive at USPS and they would mail it to me. I went to the station today to check on it and the new Postmaster said that it would be sent to my house and that they have no way to check if the paperwork was even submitted. This doesn't sound right. What should I do next? Any help would be appreciated

Write it on a calendar. You should record your hours daily. I hope you got paid for your training hours and got reimbursed for your travel/per diem if you had to travel for training. Postal managers have been known to alter time records. You cannot keep them honest, but you might catch them stealing from you.

If you don't have records, you would have to get them from management. I don't think that is wise, however. Don't draw attention to your probation.

Don't talk to managers about your probation. Let them screw it up. Don't help them keep track of stuff. I liked the guy who kept lying about when his probation was up. He kept talking about a date that was past the end of his probation hoping the managers would use his dates by mistake. He made it through probation--I don't think he affected them with his trick, however. But it was worth a try.

Brad, the main number for human resources shared services is 1-877-477-3273. You could call them. Also, I would think your child support department could take care of that, as well.

Wait a minute. Are you THAT Brad I knew years back?

Send me your contact information. I think we need to catch up on old times.

Shane- File a complaint with the NLRB against your employer and the supervisor for interfering with your rights to have union representation. Have you been employed for 12 months and do you know how many work hours you had in that 12 months?

That's terrible. I better talk more, use less sick leave and memorize my case better or i'll be in the same boat. Hang in there.

I was a PSE for MN and accepted a job with IOWA, I was just fired for not talking enough, taking off for medical reasons and not memorizing the case in a month. He refused to give me paper work or talk to my union rep

On about 02/15/17, I made the background check online and I also received a large box from USPS on my porch which contains a welcome package ("Welcome aboard" notice, the other notice that mentioned as a recently hired employee, I will receive safety and accident prevention training..... USPS branded backpack, water bottle, lanyard, and cap)on 02/31/17. Unfortunately, I didn't receive any further instructions afterward.
Someone can tell me that DID I ACTUALLY GET HIRED?????

Yes, but you have to pay for any additional charges while you are there. Do check first though there may be special requirements for the training

My husband starts training next week at a location about 5 hours from where we live, so he will be staying in a motel. He will be there 4 days. I am thinking about going with him. 1st, will he be compensated for the motel? 2nd, are spouses allowed to stay with them at a motel? Thanks ^ ^
