And, if you are wondering, my PT job is going to be with the postal service.

Don't know what your position will be, but my SO is PT with USPS as a rural carrier. She has a 1 day/week guarantee as the Saturday substitute for the main driver of that route who has already worked M-F. But she routinely works 5-10 days straight by contacting the surrounding stations and letting them know she is available as a substitute driver for them as well. It is not uncommon for her to get 1-2 calls every morning. And yes, she does get time and a half once she goes over 40 ours. Not bad for "part time" work.

I mention this because once you get some experience, it appears that you can influence the level of work you actually do.
