  • Hi, I am a letter carrier with 26 yrs in the Post office. Changes started two years ago. Due to a drop in volume, postal mgmt decided to eliminate a certain amount of routes in each office. These eliminated routes where added to other routes. They also tried to square our area off. So where as I was going across an intersection to get to the other part of my route, they have me staying on the one side and added to my delivery load. Next year we have machines coming in to sort the magazines for us and most of our time witl be spent on the street delivering mail. The Post office is scrambeling like everyone else to save money and that means changes for all of us. Thats why delivery times are changed or not consistant....we also have scanners now and we have to scan bar codes at certain times no,,,we arent going home and taking long, long lunches. I heard they are going to be installing GPS trackers next....:)

  • Anytime between 11 and 5. It depends on if he goes home in the after noon or not...

  • Its a crap shoot, sometimes the mail comes at 9am and sometimes it comes at 4:30pm. I never seem to have the same mail person and I occasionally get the WRONG mail.... CrZAy....

  • around 10am

  • mine comes around 3 pm

    I think I figured it out though, the closer I live to the post office, the later my mail comes. I think they work backwards on the way back to the post office to drop off the truck.

  • Funny you should ask this. We got our mail at 7 last night! I think she forgot our or something. Usually she comes around 3.

  • depends on which carrier it is that day. Rarely as early as 230, usually around 330, sometimes as late as 5.
