During our Stand-Up today, our Postmaster told us to get our eCareer profiles ready if we were interested in one of the 900 Supervisor vacancies throughout the nation. According to the UPMA Facebook page, the vacancies will be open to everyone from August 17 - August 23. Apparently, NONE of the displaced District personnel were interested which says they are smarter than I thought they were. Any takers on this forum?



Here is information President Dan received from Headquarters about filling vacant supervisors positions before Peak season.

Good morning!

If you see the message below, the Postal Service having recognized the need to get our supervisor staff up to acceptable levels before PEAK has decided to post the Supervisor positions listed below.

Thanks,
Dan

Subject: EAS-17 Supervisor Vacancies

CRDO & CLPO Leadership –

To help stabilize our front-line leadership as we head into peak season, we are moving forward with expanding the eligibility for earned EAS-17 Supervisor positions starting with the 900 supervisor positions that were posted last week with zero applicants.

You can move forward and post the following supervisor positions:

Supervisor, Customer Service Support
Supervisor, Customer Services
Supervisor, Distribution Operations
Supervisor, Transportation Operations
Supervisor, Maintenance Operations

These positions will be posted for 7 days from Tuesday, August 17th through Monday, August 23rd. Eligibility will be open to EAS and craft employees as well as employees who remain impacted by the administrative restructuring. Vacancies should be submitted through the Field Posting Application no later than Wednesday, August 11th.

Following this 7 day posting cycle, we will return to our standard 15 day posting cycle for front-line supervisor positions moving forward.

So why in a crisis does the USPS desperately need more middle management?

Funnily enough, my supervisor is retiring at the end of the month. I went on yesterday just to see what jobs were available in my area and her job was up there! It was available for me to apply to so I guess it’s location dependent.

Depends on where you are as to how many positions are open. In my state and the state I am thinking of moving to, there are between 7 and 10 positions in each state. After this week, they will be opening more positions and they will be posted for the regular 15 day periods.

We need more carriers, not supervisors. Why pluck employees from a much needed craft.

Over 500 jobs are posted. They are restricted to those living in those districts, current employees, including craft and those affected by the RIF. I was looking at one in Alaska and that's how it was worded.

Decided to noodle around eCareer, just to see what's open. 24 in MO, mostly in the KC and St Louis areas, of course. A lot of the more rural states with one or two.

Holy crap, the Virgin Islands has an opening. So does Guam. Man, if I were 30 years younger...

ETA:

If you want a change of pace (in MO), without crossing over to the dark side, which I would not recommend unless you have done a 204B or two, check out eReassign. 34 openings in the MoKan district. Even a couple down at the Lake of the Ozarks.

About 3 pages worth of ea17 jobs posted in Ohio. Also agree with above poster that unless you’ve detailed out a few times I would consider heavily before switching to EAS. In my opinion in seems very unstable over there as of the past couple years

From what I've seen and read, the only ones impacted are those in some sort of hq job. EAS in the plants and carrier unions are fine. But even those impacted are going to get a job, even if it's not necessarily a very desirable one. Plus if it's a lower level job, they get saved grade for two years. Bigger question about going into EAS, are you willing to battle daily for what's right or are you going to simply follow orders, even immoral and illegal ones.

i just figured with the excrement show that is Chicago, there would be a significant need for folks...the processing plants are black holes for mail...we are already having issues with transportation, so i figured maybe they would be looking for some transportation managers, as twice now in the past 2 months we have not had a driver for our 'early' route on a MONDAY...and it isnt uncommon to have one of the supervisors drive a route at least once a week because they cant get people with CDLs...

and its not just the post office needing CDL drivers...huge bus driver shortage here too...yeah, driving a school bus isnt a glamourous job, and they arent often fulltime...im thinking with almost a full year of most schools in elearning, many of those drivers probably found another source of income...either in the form of a job or a handout...

Wonder how long till they open these positions to the public and you guys have regular Joe’s off the street now making what you make or more but in a position of authority.

I haven’t seen L17 management jobs posted in a very long time in my area. I’ve seen a few guys hired off the street. One guy was a mad man who was an ex Home Depot ASM.

I will hold them in as much contempt as I do the supervisors who complain about being a TE and loosing pay to become a CCA.

For all those that said they were wondering when they were going to open up EAS positions again... They are open in your Districts. Good time for all the complainers that know how to do it better to step up and prove it. But then again it is much easier to lead from the back of the formation hahaha

Little different than those that cry for the Union and that Stewart guy to do something. It takes good people on both sides and we're sorely lacking of anything more than whiners.

Supervisor positions are not "middle management". They are front line personnel who have a direct influence on actual operations that effect mail flow in sorting plants and delivery offices. You may agree or disagree with the way a supervisor handles their employees but compared to "middle managers" who sit in offices shuffling papers and sending emails.. They are MUCH more necessary to the overall operation of the USPS.
