Postmasters get paid 8 hours a day. They need to work 8 or their direct report needs to know where they are. It is not okay to share passwords. Everything is transparent. It is easy to see who is

Paul Joseph is still trying to Retire
Applying to retire? Be sure to do this at least 13 MONTHS before you set a firm date because it will take HRSSC that long to unscrew your paperwork needed to retire. And how do I know all
Because since July 1st which was supposed to be my ‘official first day’ of retirement, I have had exactly SIX phone calls from HRSSC calling and leaving a message on my phone because this was messed

They even called twice to apologize saying I was right and DID fill out two different forms correctly after they called and said I did it wrong. Seriously????? ( Good luck Paul)
