It is common for transfer requests to take years. For that reason, I advise against waiting for something to be posted under “Reassignment Opportunities.” Somebody could beat you by one day! If you have a standing request for transfer to somewhere, you must renew your request before one year is up or you lose your place in line. eReassign does not send out reminders. You can renew your request up to 90 days prior to the expiration date. There is no limit on the number of reassignment requests you can submit nor is there a limit to the number of times you can renew your request.
Noncareer employees have the most freedom of movement. They can move from one post office to another or from one craft to another with a minimum five-day break. They do not have to wait a minimum of 12 or 18 months in their post office nor must they have a sterling work, safety and attendance record. It is extremely hard for career employees to transfer. Some have had to quit and take a PSE position.
