A city carrier is a carrier with his "won" route, a regular assignment that he does every work day. A carrier technician (also called T-6 or C-2) is a carrier who works the day off of five different routes, on a rotating basis. Monday on Route A, Tuesday on Route B and so on, covering the days off of five regular carriers. He covers the same 5 routes all the time. The T-6 gets a little higher pay rate because he is required to know 5 routes instead of just one. He also has the responsibility of training a new guy when one takes over a route on his string.

I meant "own" not "won" but it still works.

Good luck!
You know that a TE is a temporary position, right? A one year appointment, with option to renew.

The T-6 has the right to train new regulars on his swing. New hires to the service "should" be trained by on the job trainers and attend carrier academy.
Once you get the basics you can absolutely learn new routes on your own.
