    Where did you leave parcel for so and so address a month ago?

    When and if RREC is implemented, this will play a vital role in our compensation. Once the plotting of mailboxes and front doors has been completed, scanning to the correct location will give the correct feet for parcel delivery.

    Where did you leave parcel for so and so address a month ago?

    This is why it is so important to only scan at the door or mailbox of where it goes. Can’t argue if it is where it was supposed to be.

    Full day of relief

    The program used is called DRT for Dynamic Routing. It is Amazon’s and uses the Co Pilot program. It tracks by Y -City and L-Rural. It provides parcel count, total time to deliver each of those routes. It does have you drive back some, which is frustrating.

    Flip windows

    There is a thing called Box Commander that I believe was invented by a rural carrier. It is made of hard plastic and can be worn like a ring on the right hand. I use it daily.

    Academy vs. The Real Deal

    Years ago I was fortunate to get to do shadow, then work my assigned route before being sent to the academy. I believe this made a world of difference so that when I got there I was NOT overwhelmed. Somewhere they decided to do shadow day, then orientation, drivers training then academy. Talk...

    Here by a plug..

    Every regular has paid the penance of being an RCA. Every new RCA faces newer challenges as the business that we are in changes (evolves). This job is not for everyone, so the question that only YOU can answer is whether YOU are up for the challenge. This is not a game, just reality where every...

    If you have been keeping track of your actual working hours since the guarantee period began, you should know where you are. You will get a discussion, letter asking you to take annual to get your 2080 under control. You can take LWOP, but they can not demand it. Caution on LWOP. Too many hours...

    Help. I am about to go postal!!!

    Out of respect for those that were killed just doing their job when a disturbed co worker took his anger on all near him, I implore you to seek EAP first, and take Oi Veh’s advice. Using that phrase is NOT cool!

    Working regular on overtime list or splitting route?

    Being on the OTDL is not a guarantee. It is cheaper for the PO to split the route.

    4003 update

    As a carrier, you must update and maintain the Edit book. This is first step. Turn in and they will update all but new addresses. The edit book will get sent up to District where AMS will add the new addresses. The 4003 can be updated any time, but after this occurs. All must match before it...

    proper use of sick leave

    The new mantra is.... If you need to go to the doctor, schedule before / after your tour or better still on your day off. Sick leave should be banked in the event you have a serious illness or hospitalization you can use it. More than 3 days of sick and you will need a doctors note stating...
