On June 19, the Statistical Programs Department held its Quarter 3 training and also celebrated the career milestones of three clerks --- Victor Iglesias with 30 years and Fidel Pino and Gary Seames, each with 25 years.
“I was working in the Virginia area and had heard that the Post Office was a good place to work, so I applied,” said Iglesias. “I had not heard anything and being young, I moved around a bit. Three years and three moves later, I final had gotten a response from the Post Office. There were three yellow stickers on the front to the envelope. I knew that the job was for me because the letter followed me. Later I transfer to the Miami area. And now after 30-plus years, I am looking forward to retiring within the next few years, possibly sooner.
“I was not interested in postal employment, but my godmother insisted that I apply, so I did,” said Pino. “At this time, I have no plans to retire. I will keep going for as long as possible.”
