What’s the mail handler shifts?
Asked September 3, 2018
Varies based on position held at a main post office
Answered September 3, 2018
Each route has an evaluated time based on periodic mail counts. The longest route I have been scheduled on was 9+ hours daily; the shortest was an auxiliary route of 4- hours daily. You are paid the evaluated time whether you complete the route over or under such time. It is to your benefit to do the route under the evaluated time. For ex, if the route is evaluated at 9 hrs a day, you will get paid for 45 hrs if you run it 5 days that week, providing you actually worked it in under 40 hrs. If your actual time exceeds 40 hrs then you are in overtime and will only get 40 hrs plus time and a half for however much you went over by. It's confusing but a way to encourage efficiency and expediency and discourage employees from milking the clock. Also, if you are an RCA and called in to work on a day when you are not scheduled, you are guaranteed a minimum of 2 hrs of pay, even if you are sent home for whatever reason (say mgmt made a mistake or they got someone else to cover the route). There may be occasions when a route has to be split between 2 or more RCAs (due to lack of coverage). In this instance you will only be paid for the hours and mileage you worked.
