Community Q&A: Mail Carrier enjoys his USPS job, even during winter
Kevin Pinkerton, 48, of Walla Walla, has been working the past 15 years for the United States Postal Service as a letter carrier.
Winter is always an especially challenging season for USPS employees, and Pinkerton said Christmastime means his work week approaching 90 hours.
“It was just because of the volume,” he said.
Regardless of winter weather conditions, which are rarely pleasant and sometimes downright hazardous, “The job’s got to get done.”
It might be a frigid Sunday night with snow blanketing the Walla Walla Valley, but carriers are still running their routes in the various neighborhoods.
Yet it’s been a job that Pinkerton has enjoyed.
