5. Your coworker did not clean up her work area before she went on break, so you clean it up to avoid a potential accident. She goes back to her work station after her break without noticing anything.
What would you most and least likely do?

Don’t say anything because you cleaned it up already.

Tell her you cleaned up the mess she made.

Tell her to be more cautious and aware of her work area before she leaves and the importance of cleaning procedures and safety precautions to avoid accidents.

Tell your coworker you are reporting her negligence to your supervisor.

ML Tell her to be more cautious and aware of her work area before she leaves and the importance of cleaning procedures and safety precautions to avoid accidents.
This reply shows the USPS that you act responsibly in potentially dangerous situations and take safety precautions seriously. This role is very physical and requires moving around for the entire shift, so it is always imperative for proper safety and cleaning procedures to be applied and demonstrated.

LL Don’t say anything because you cleaned it up already.
This response shows a poor way to handle the situation. Even though you did clean up the mess to avoid any injuries, it is negligent on your part to not say anything to your coworker who may not have been aware of the proper safety procedures. If you did decide to tell her you cleaned up the mess, it would make her aware of the situation which may have been unintentional, but it does address the potential safety hazard.

6. You are working to complete a task and must meet a deadline. A coworker begins to ask you some questions that you know the answers to and could explain, but that will take time away from the task you are trying to finish.
What would you most and least likely do?

Stop the task you are working on to help your coworker.

Tell them you will help as soon as you are able to.

Ask if they can wait since you need to complete your work.

Let them know you cannot help because you have to meet your deadline.

ML Ask if they can wait since you need to complete your work.
This scenario is like the one you encountered earlier. This response demonstrates that you would like to assist your coworker but you are also concerned with finishing your work on time. By asking, you would find out if they are able to wait until you are finished or if not, you may still be able to quickly help and also finish your tasks on time.

LL Let them know you cannot help because you have a deadline to meet.
This reply shows you are not being a helpful associate and that type of behavior does not support team work. Showing no attempt to assist your coworker reflects poorly on your character and could potentially affect overall production goals.
