If any of you rurals pick up parcels in quantity from customers, don't let mgt tell you you are only to scan 5 of them. Scan every single one! We were told, a week before the count, that the "rule" is scan only 5. Not true!

/m2652 local laws always.. here we cannot drive with hazards (we do).. here the shoulder of the road and regular lane are considered one (nobody knows that), so turn signal would mean what?? i would suggest blinkers, but i would think hard to mandate.. anyone else??

/m2653 short answer. yes..until last contract the des. 79's had the option of taking the 6-0 option.. working the aux only.. it was changed that they can make you run other routes but you do get to do your aux first before offering assistance.. see contract for more details or ask

/m2653 -- zano -- "As an rca assigned to an aux route am i also required to do all the other rural routes in the office also?
They say that i am also the sub for all rural routes."

-- Are you in a regular post office or an Administrative Post Office ( APO ) or a Remotely Managed Post Office ( RMPO )?

-- How many routes in your office?

-- How many routes have an assigned sub?

-- Is the office Matrix filled out -- properly or other wise?

-- The Matrix has a space for a primary route and a second and third choice of routes. That should limit you to 3 routes.

-- However, the more routes you know, the more work you should be able to get.

Are rural carriers required to use their turn signals when approaching and leaving a mailbox? In other words, use turn signals before and after every mailbox on their route. Or is this what the flashers are for?

I think I found my answer I should be good to go for 90 days thank goodness...hate that drive for no pay lol..thanks for the input tho... 518.2 Pre-Employment Drug Test

A pre-employment drug test is ordered for applicants recommended for selection by the interviewer when the applicant is within reach for selection (e.g., no sooner than 90 days before anticipated hiring). Only applicants determined to be drug-free as a result of the urinalysis are eligible for appointment. A drug screen test that results in a qualified status is good for 90 days from the date of the result. Applicant names entered on a Hiring List before expiration of the 90–day qualification period are eligible for employment consideration regardless of the date of appointment from that List.

Postal employees who apply for promotion, reassignment, or change to lower level are not considered applicants for drug screening purposes, except for positions in the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Note: A new drug test is not required if the applicant is a former employee and has been selected for rehire within 90 days or less of their separation.

If all 3 are in the same installation, I'd say that one background check should suffice. But expect to have to pass a separate drug test for each job.
