Iam a new cca and had an OTJ training for three days then the fourth day was given a new route by myself. I tried to perform like was taught but considering the new addresses that are hidden, very confusing procedure and trying to be fast enough like the regulars with 20yr experience oh my goodness the boss was really mad and branded me unteachable plus many unspeakable words i cant even write here. It is a total nightmare. I want to learn but the boss is terrifying, on the 5th day he sent me back home and said he will call me when he needs me, Iam now two weeks without being scheduled, this means no money and bills are there glaring at me at end of the month. what do i do now and i want the job, i really need it!! i feel like am collapsing!!!

is there a place to go and get advice about PSE jobs I worked as a carrier and had a hard time driving that LLV and got lost all the time very bad sense of direction so I was always coming in late and went over on my time. I talked to my manager and explained what my troubles were and they agreed I am a hard worker and hustled when I was able to find the places to deliver to but my time was horrible so I chose to resign and wait for the job I originally wanted inside. lifting no problem caring the mail no trouble but driving and going from place to place complete disaster. I am on 4 pre-hire list for PSE positions but not sure what to do next?

Rural's have in their contract that RCA's get two days training (in the truck) with the regular on every rt they have to cover. Something to consider.

Bulldog- OJI training gives you the training to be a carrier. It is not intended to train you on every route in every office. Every route has its own issues and the regular carrier for that route should have info cards cased in to help new carriers with specific problems. Most things about a route just have to be learned over time carrying it.

Are you suggesting that for every route you will be assigned to, you must be trained to do that entire route by an OJI? What happen if you were to send to another station, do they have to train you on those routes also?

I don't think you meant the routes weren't numbered. I'm guessing the houses did not have numbers on them. I would have to dig around in the postal manuals but the houses are supposed to have numbers on them. It's also tricky if the mailbox of the house on a street corner is at the back door on the street that is not the address. I agree it's horribly unfair.

So after completing my OJI I should be able to complete any route, in any city, making correct deliveries?
Because the routes I ran for my office, boxes and houses were not always numbered, some streets did not immediately connect to the previous street that you delivered.

The fact that you think the training is irrelevant is irrelevant. The OJI training should be the same for every office

I did have OJI, it was just in another city which I feel was completely irrelevant to being in the city I was in.

If you did not have three full days on the road with a trained OJI, have your steward/pres call the district management office. Every district now has a POOM designated solely to oversee CCA's, including turnover. I would think you have a shot at getting your job back. If you can't get any help, take the initiative and make the call yourself.

@troublemaker. My OJI was in another town and I was never shown an entire route my entire 80 days. It took them 6 days to show me half of the first route I ran and the other 2 I had to figure out on my own, I wore out the lead CCA's phone calling asking where streets and boxes were located.

Did you get three full days on the road with a trained OJI (on the job instructor) carrier? We actually got a probationary period CCA their job back in our office bc he didn't get properly trained. Ask the steward/pres in your office for your signed OJI packet.

@rickslick. My employment was terminated though. Am I not entitled to union representation? I've paid my dues and been to work on time. I've give them my best efforts and feel black balled after the schedule incident

Help! I'm a CCA for my local post office. I've been on the job for 80 days. I feel like I have been burned. I was never shown a route from my first day, I had to figure it out on my own. I was given unsatisfactory on everything on my evaluation including my attendance despite being on time every time I was on schedule. This past Friday when I left the office I was on schedule for 8:30 Saturday, upon arrival I found out someone changed the schedule to 7:30, I was never notified and have several witnesses who saw that I was on for 8:30 when we left at 4:00 Friday evening. I requested a union rep for my evaluation and had my request denied. What can I or should I do?

Not in our district. Internationals must be delivered by close of business which would be 5 pm.
In accordance with the money-back guarantee standards in Publication 141, a
refund request may be filed if the carrier at the destination country does not
deliver the shipment, does not attempt to deliver the shipment, or does not
make the shipment available on or before close of business in the local time
zone in the delivery location.

Arkansas Marine. Hope they do not ding you for this. Even if there is no delivery time all express must be attempted before 3
