If I were to quit a PTF clerk job with only a couple of days notice, but would like to return in the near future, what determines my eligibility to be rehired?
With the fact that I'm not giving two weeks notice be an issue, or is that up to the postmaster? I'm not really sure a two week notice at the post office is to anyone's benefit as positions can't be posted until you're off the records anyway.
I would like to be able to come back as a PSE in a different location.

1) how will your current management file your paperwork? If they mark you as do not rehire, you are out of luck.

2) if you are eligible to be rehired, what will the new management think of your quitting?


Those who are, know those who are not.

If you think they are after you, what did you do wrong?

I'd mark you as do not rehire. You should give your PM some notice and courtesy, otherwise you're not worth two cents in my book.

They don't give two weeks notice when they fire you, and never give you courtesy. Still, if the OP wants to come back crawling on their knees, they better leave on their knees.

The op is career so your statement is incorrect.

It would be a mistake to leave without giving at least a two weeks notice. It will be looked upon badly. You are a career employee and if you want to work for USPS in future you should leave on good terms. Be sure to fill out the form PS2574 so it is clear that you are resigning and not being terminated.

If you consider being "emergency placed", then having the union fight for your job. Possiblity for a couple of months only to lose the grievance being "2 weeks notice", you are correct.

Justifying bad behavior with somebody else's bad behavior is pathetic.

Almost no one, in any job for any employer, is given notice before they are fired. That's just asking for trouble, as the employee is likely to be disgruntled.
