“I didn’t bid correctly at my previous station as a RCA. It was a district bid I submitted mistakenly. I took the job as regular because my PO told me I’d have to go back on a hiring list if I didn’t want the job as a regular.You have posted a lot of questions regarding giving up your regular carrier job, why are you considering this idea.
Is it for a move to a new location, or is it to get away from a toxic environment?
If it is the latter, maybe you have other options including the 204B position (supervisor training program)
It would probably take me 3 years to get a mutual transfer where I’m at. 1 lady quite a year after trying to get out and another one has been trying for 2 years.I've seen this happen before, what pm would not want a "seasoned" Rca in their office? If you are bent on moving to an area and can't find a regular to trade, this is an option. You should look for an office with high growth, half dead or dying regulars, and low Rca to regular ratio. Where I've seen this happen the RCA that was a regular is set to go regular again after 3 years.
Still unclear, is it just the office that is the problem or are you trying to relocate to a different state for example.It would probably take me 3 years to get a mutual transfer where I’m at. 1 lady quite a year after trying to get out and another one has been trying for 2 years.
