Customer service is no longer the priority and hasn't been for a long time. Pay for performance.

/M3276 "Return AFCS’s to plants such as..."

Problem is, most of those AFCS's no longer exist.

restore Overnight Delivery/Reinstate Plant canceling operations (If you agree, vote for it on IdeaSmart)

Problem: the USPS gave up a highly valued overnight service in many areas to the detriment of customers. While FCM may have diminished significantly it remains a valuable contributor to revenue and must be protected. Eliminating it has damaged the brand, disrupted many mailers, and will inevitably damage FCM revenue. The current plan has led to an inevitable drop in on-time delivery and customer satisfaction.

Proposed Solution :
Improvement: Return AFCS’s to plants such as Duluth, Rochester, Mankato, St. Cloud, and others that once had them. They would simply cancel the mail, separating designated local zips from outgoing. The outgoing pieces would simply be trayed and sent to the consolidation plants for further processing. This keeps local pieces from having to travel to a consolidation point only to be shipped back later and resulting in two, rather than one day delivery. The culled (heavy or otherwise unmachinable) could also be separated to local and outgoing holdouts, keeping the former and shipping the later. The rejects could simply be faced and separated to the manual trays (local and outgoing).
While the utilization rates of machines are a consideration, ultimately serving the customer a product they desire is of utmost importance. If concerns of utilization remain, redirect uncanceled letters from other offices.
Benefits: Overnight service is reinstated and mail is not looping from plants to a consolidation center and back again. The risk of weather delaying mail from the consolidation center is significantly reduced. Long-term profitability is maximized by creating superior value at the lowest achievable cost. Customers understand now what was lost with overnight service and would be very pleased to see it back.

OK. May 1st. Thought the word on continuing whatever phase the Postal Service was on, the people were suppose to know something in April. Management at it's finest. More pay for performance.

Here's my final analysis for the 95%: stop kissing your supervisor butt, put in 8 hours of work like everyone else, stop talking down and at the newbies, give them a chance and time to learn. No one is a professional one month or even 6 months out. So take all those years you have on your back and walk it back and stop putting your angst and worry on the new guy back. If you don't like your job or situation than either retire or quit. It is that simple but only a genius would come to this conclusion this quickly. But I understand why some who have the time to retire don't, it's because they are miserable butt heads who feel important at work and enjoy passing on misery to others and feel once they are out the door of the post office they are worthless. They a few correct about being worthless. There is so many good people of the younger generation trying to get ahead. So for all the butt heads at the Norfolk PD&C just retire or quit.

Just saw a recent article about employees in a Vermont post office complaining about management abuse to the window clerks. How ironic is how the regulars back in the day treated casuals, TE's, PTF's. And now they're talking about some former jerks who were their friends who are now their bosses (real funny) please tell it to the worry warts you idiots. For everything I say you all know it's true.

There will not be anymore early buyouts believe me. Those days are over. I took the last early out in 2013. I loved my job but 95% of the people at the Norfolk, VA PD&C were the worst I ever met in my life. Though I only actually physically worked for post office for 19 yr I still got to retire at age 50. A couple years after I retired they called me back to work and I did so gladly. I saw some of the same people who had 15 yrs on the job my very first day and they are still there (that includes one of my old supervisor) today. A bunch of butt heads who treat the newbies like crap. One of those 15yrs plus people told me that they still have 10 more years to go before they can retire. So by the time they retire I will already have had 25 years of retirement on them. That's how smart a lot of these government employees think they are. I never assimilated myself mentally into their way of group thinking. So for the 5% who are great people hang in their and retire as soon as you can for life is sweeter on this end. As for the rest of you jerks, keep slaving to the government. In closing, no matter what your return comment will be too this post it will not effect me one way or the other for I have all the time in the world to dissect any stupid comment one may leave.
