I don’t understand what the problem is with hiring people! I wish I had the job of doing the hiring! I think someone should be just steady sending people into offices not waiting on a postmaster to do it! R they just lazy? What’s the problem??I currently have a class action at step 2 for 17 120 Day Letters that lapsed. Now they need to post 17 PTF positions. My PM hates me.
Another anecdote is building trades. While the housing/construction sector continues to boom and boomers are continuing to exit the workforce, building trades are lucrative to anyone looking for a future career.Here in the northeast, $19 bucks an hr just doesn't cut it. On top of having to provide a pov no one in their right mind wants the job. Plus, no benefits! The grocery stores are paying $18-$19 to stock shelves , a union job with benefits and you get paid for every hour you work! What a novel concept! Plus a.c. in summer, heat and out of the snow in winter.
Why would they need to post 17 PTFs? You would have to have a minimum of 34 K-routes without Primary RCAs to cover that many PTF positions.I currently have a class action at step 2 for 17 120 Day Letters that lapsed. Now they need to post 17 PTF positions. My PM hates me.
The last hiring blitz we had was about a year ago...only 1 guy showed up....and he always needs help, never takes a whole route out( even the small j routes) and has meltdowns almost daily...in the last 6 weeks 4 RCA's hired in the last 2 weeks two have said screw it I am out of here and 1 more will walk or be asked to walk before next week is up manager was pissed 3 days and they haven't taken the whole route or amazon yet. Why would they stay when those that cannot do the job are judging them on a standard that in realty they cannot reach
our 2 ptf's call in 6 to 8 days a month only 4 routes eachWhy would they need to post 17 PTFs? You would have to have a minimum of 34 K-routes without Primary RCAs to cover that many PTF positions.
To cover that many 120-Day letters, there could be as little as 4 PTFs to be Compliant & each would have 4 or 5 routes on each String. Much easier & better to get less PTFs with more routes than More PTFs with less routes.
