Trucks with air conditioning. The workers have to work in extreme heat and providing them with trucks with air conditioning will help prevent deaths and heat exhaustion.

Inefficiency in office procedures and routes (sometimes you have 3 carriers going into the same subdivision - ridiculous!). Favoritism. Management seems more interested in breaking the carriers by adding unnecessary stressors than by providing them with tools to make the job easier, the environment more inviting.

I took the test on a Friday. The next Friday, just 7 days later, I was called to come to the interview. I was surprised because I was told by everyone that I’d get an email and it would take forever. My interview was the Monday after, and I was offered the position by email today. So it was super quick. 9 days from test to offer. Also, during the interview you’re with a few other people while the supervisor talks about the job you’re applying for. He seemed honest and forthright, didn’t sugarcoat anything. Then you’re each taken separately for the individual interview which is straight forward and consisted of regular interview questions such as “how do you rate safety in important, 1 being least important, 10 being most important” and questions about your work ethic and experience. Fast process!

I applied for a ARC position on 10/29, I received a background consent 2 days later, days after that I received a interview notice for 11/7, 2 days after that I received offer letter, 2nd background screening and drug test... I take drug test Monday and hopefully will start working within the next 2 weeks. The whole process has been quick and hassle free.

I recently resigned the post office as CCA. I worked in a larger town probably around 180k or more people. I was normally working 10, some times 12 hours 6 days a week. 65-70 hr/week. Every holiday.

I wasn't there very long. The CCA's that had been there awhile were doing 7 days a week no time off. If you have family it is not for you. You will not see them.

I was told I was hired, I did the drug test passed, traded my truck and took out a loan to get a Honda CRV to diver mail in, got called to the office to sign some papers then got an email that I was not eligible for hire because I didn't mention a misdemeanor from 15yrs ago. So now I'm starting all over.
