Must be dedicated and have an excellant memory. And be willing to work in all kinds of weather.
Sub mail carrier (Former Employee) – Lakeside, AZ – August 14, 2018
It is very time oriented, with a certain amount of time allotted to sort mail and packages, make adjustments to the route for permanent and temporary mail holds, collect sensitive mail (certified, registered, any mail or packages requiring a signature, etc.), load vehicle and complete route before outgoing truck arrives at the PO.
Enjoyed the job for the most part once I was out on the route.
As a sub, I worked ALL weekends and holidays. And I had to provide my own vehicle, insurance, cover maintenance, etc. Granted, I was compensated at so much per mile, but didn't cover all expenses that were incurred annually.
