Ah part time. And what was the rate? How could it not have gone up in 36 years? They can't use Chinese commuters, can they?

I started at about $8.25 and was at $10 a couple years later. Besides that I don't recall any medical/dental deduction, and had one of my kids while there, and had 2 others seeing the pediatrician. Cost nothing. Things have changed.

They sure have. BTW, when I was a summer employee, June 1968, I got $2.65 an hour (plus some benefits, I'm sure)

I once went in for testing for electronic and maintenance jobs. This was all advertised. Maybe 12 jobs. 600 applicants taking vigorous testing over two days. Tough stuff. I finally got invited for interview, but it was for a job in next state, at least 60 miles away. I didn't go.

Reminds me of a job I applied for at the Rail Road. Went in a room with about 40 people for one job. Listened to a guy talk about the job for 2 hours. I was not all that keen on the job after finding out they wanted you to almost stay by the phone when at home without pay.
After 2 hours they gave break and I left and did not go back to see about the job. I did not think I had a chance at it anyway.

I had a summer job at the post office, of all places. 1968. I just had to take a test and I'm real good at tests (at least I was before I got senioritis.) They wouldn't tell me my day off until a day or two before, and the time I was supposed to get to work varied from 6:30AM to iirc 10AM.
So I couldn't make plans to go away for 2 days because I never had 2 days off in a row, and I couldn't have a date because I might have to get up at 5:30 t he next day, or I might have to work till 6:30 that day, or both, and didnt' know until the previous day.
One day at 10:20 I was bawled out for not being out delivering the mail, when I had come in at 10 and was still sorting it.
Last 2 and half weeks. On my day off I went out and found that expressway job.
The USPS has changed a lot however. Use to be they wouldnt' give a customer the slightest piece of tape, and they work a lot harder than before. ("Dont' come back too soon", a carrier said to me.) And I guess are going to work harder yet.

Jobs with the USPS are almost impossible to get. My ex worked as a temp at the USPS for nine months and still couldn't get hired on permanently. Any USPS position, from clerk to sorter to mailman is a well paying job with great bennies and is highly desirable, more so in this depressed economy. Friends and relatives of employees will always be at the head of the line, for obvious reasons. You should look for something else.

They probably aren't. Even though the court struck down 5 day a week mail delivery, that was because the USPS did it without, iirc, Congress saying they could. If Congress agrees, that's almost 1/6th of all t he carriers. My own mailman said that last week he was going to be followed around by someone while he did his route, so that they could rearrange the routes and make them longer. That would mean fewer carriers. The carriers are 60 to 80% of the employees, I forget the number. ** He doesn't care much. He told me he's retiring in August or October, one of those awe months.

Sure is an interesting page.

I don't know. Have you checked his whole body. Maybe his left side doesn't match his right side. Wouldn't that be self-diversity.

Perhaps he is melanin impaired. That condition keeps a lot of young and old from getting hired, especially for government jobs. ^_^

Asshole.
There are a lot of blacks working for the post office because Roosevelt ended segregation in the civil service, and the post office is its biggest employer.. Were you in charge, you'd probably bring segregation back.

My God what a racist you are! Typical of you P.L.L.C.F. types. If I were in charge, I would follow the wish of one of the greatest Americans who did his best to change the culture in this country. He once said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." M.L. King would be appalled by the nonsense know as "Affirmative Action" because it goes against every thing he believed in such as "equality". Preferential treatment based on someone's ancestry or gender goes against everything Dr. King fought and was killed for. You P.L.L.C.F. wish death on anyone who has a different set of values than your own. o_O

Thanks for all the suggestions for getting my nephew a job. I did manage to find two places that are within 30 miles of here that were looking for people at the post office.
After showing my nephew how to use Clipmate, he has all his personal information stored so he can paste it into as many applications as he can find.
I went to UPS to apply and could not find a careers option on the page so I searched for "ups careers" https://www.google.com/search?q=ups%20carrers&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=np&source=hp#client=firefox-a&hs=ypD&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=np&q=ups+careers&spell=1&sa=X&ei=m9q4UfCgHezH0AHckoH4Bw&ved C0QvwUoAA&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.47810305,d.dmQ&fpa99661b2698b36&biw79&biht3
It looks like https://upsjobs.managehr.com/ is the official site for jobs. You would think ups.com would be the URL.
The search also comes up with pages that are obviously not UPS that are advertising jobs with UPS. I can't help but wonder why other companies would be offering jobs for UPS?
I have told him to be cautious in giving out his SSN, but everyone he will be dealing with will be asking for it.

They have tests for the various positions. They rank the results and conta ct from the top down. Periodically they offer the tests again. If you don 't do very well then people will keep going in on top of you on the list. It's been 30 years ago but I did very well on the tests and got 10 extra po ints for being a disabled veteran. That put me pretty close to the top of the list but it was still a couple months before I got contacted. And that was back in the days when they were a growth industry. Now I'd think you have to get a perfect score and be a 10 point vet plus be in a big city to even have a chance.
