Many years ago I owned and serviced equipment in the “Employee Area” of about 50 postal facilities. Cannot speak for carriers but what goes on in the back rooms is nothing short of criminal. One facility had 10 phones (a GMF for those in the know) I rarely saw anyone working at what I would consider a fair pace for private industry.

What time of day would be there? A GMF is a slow place during the day. If you came in during the day, you didn't see the real work of the post office. The hectic work starts early evening and ends around 7 AM. Some days just going at a fair pace for private industry wouldn't get the work done in time.

Since it was open 24/7 I went in at all hours but mostly in the early am (4-5) so I could get a jump on the day. However, almost any time the high speed sorters were running and I gather at that point very problematic - maintenance and supervision all over the place. Interesting what happens when one of those things goes berserk.
