Do all the LLV's smell like 20 years of mailman body odor?

I applied for a TE carrier job about 2 years ago while still working as an automation processing clerk. At the time it was a huge pay jump ($22 per hr vs $14.60) but in retrospect I think I'm glad I didn't get hired. Carrier work seems like a LOT of wear and tear on the body, lots of stress, plus now the pay is almost the same ($15 vs $14.89).

Delivering mail can be the most boring and monotonous job ever. There's times where I won't talk to a person all day unless I need to go their door for a cert or whatever.

Each has it's plusses and minuses, you just have to decide which fits you better.

Well, today I had a visitor join me for half a loop.

He's (Has to be a male, he's huge) a crow that could fly up to a low hanging branch, but no further. So I snatched him and put him in the satchel, then in the LLV put him in a tub. He sat there.
Because he could fly I figured he either had a minor injury or got poisoned. I figure if he dies then whatever. But we got a lot of animals out here so I gave him a chance. I named him Joey. (Joe The Crow, get it?).

Well I have him in the breezeway now and he's eating, and flying. Real good signs.

I'll let him go tomorrow afternoon. After work.

You won't get that experience as a PSE Clerk. (It made my day. We're kind of strange out here in the boonies).

So would Joey! If I didn't grab him then and there!
And then there are The Fox, the Mountain Lion, the Bear (Still sleeping though) and the Coyote. And all their buddies like the Hawk. I just learned that Joey likes Lasagna! (He doesn't have a choice tonight). Guess Who2013-03-11 17:02:58

Frick, it says "hiring list"

Is this going to screw my clerk job?

update : OK OK, I clicked withdraw and clicked ok, but nothing seems to be changing on screen.

update : ok it says withdrawn, thanks for telling me about that spot on the ecareer page, now i can see the status of other applications that i've completed in the past. oddly some of them are still open after a very long time.


I hope you are not in a impacted area, or in a plant slated for closure. The CCA position seems to offer more security, and a better chance for career employment. Even though clerks have a 50 mile excessing rule, but as has been mentioned previously, that limit could be expanded out to several hundred miles. You could always apply again, if the employment outlook changes in your area. Good luck to you!
