Job Description for Postman

A postman is the person responsible for delivering the mail to its proper destination. The postman's first duty of the day is to sort the mail that will be on his or her assigned route of the day. Postmen must put the mail in sequence so that delivery is accurate and organized. A postman can either be given a route that is residential or commercial, and often those routes will be permanent. The postman must also pick up outgoing mail and collect the signatures for certified mail. Postmen are also responsible for redirecting letters or packages that have been addressed incorrectly. Postman may also have routes that are pickup-only. These workers will collect the mail from the blue boxes that are scattered around the city. Some workers will be assigned to mail stations or sorting offices. Postmen work all year around, and the work is always busy. The holidays bring extra work and hours for everyone. The day begins early, and on some days it ends late. Postmen are relied on heavily, so the job they do has many tasks and duties. Until they turn in their bags at the end of the day, they are responsible for the mail that they hold, the signatures that need collecting, and the packages that they might have been given that need delivering.
