Very poor communication by management. Carriers were generally referred to as "grumpy old men" by one postmaster. I would come to work and be sent home because there was no vehicle to drive, or on a couple of occasions, I was almost at work, and told to the day off. Scanners didn't work properly. You never know your schedule until late in the afternoon the day before, so it was impossible to plan any outside activities. Very poor work/life balance.
poorly run and resourced operation
