WHO HE IS: Supervisor of Bulk Mail and Special Services

TIME AT PENN: 4 1/2 years

WHAT HE DOES: Melton oversees a variety of mail services, including everything from folding to mailing, ink-jetting and fulfillment work. He also handles permit jobs, which includes large-scale delivery of nonprofit standard mail. “I enjoy interacting with the Penn community, and dealing
with the Penn community,” Melton says.

HOW MUCH MAIL?: Each week, Melton’s department processes anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000 pieces of mail.

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MORE MAIL: “I would say our busiest time of year is in April,” Melton says. And there’s a good reason: April is when Penn sends out its rejection and acceptance letters, as well as information packets for incoming students, all of which goes through Melton. “I would say that adds between 35,000 and 50,000 pieces,” he says.
