If you want to move to another postal clerk job quickly and easily, there are 98 PSE clerk positions available at USPS Hot Jobs. After you apply and are accepted, they give you a five-day break in service and off you go. eReassign can take years and years of waiting. Due to the 1 in 4 or 1 in 6 ratios that give preference to PSEs, it means that only 16-25% of the FTR jobs on eReassign are actually available for transfers. See the MOU Residual Vacancies – Clerk Craft.
The whole eReassign transfer process is nontransparent. People have no idea where their relative standing is on the list. A person can lose their place in line on eReassign if they forget to renew their request before the one-year expiration date. One year is way too short. There is no requirement for the selecting official to follow the “Rule of 3” like there is for new hires. Installation heads can pass over as many people as they want for allegedly poor work, attendance or safety records until they get the person they want.
The Postal Service has posted a bunch of management trainee positions at USPS Hot Jobs. The requirement of a recent college degree means that most will be hired off-the-street. They have also posted twenty-two EAS-17 supervisor jobs for only non-career postal employees and the public to apply for. The minimum qualification is age 16 with a high school diploma. I wonder who these jobs are intended for? The starting salary is $61,143. Enter the keyword “EAS” to see them all.
