USPS postal clerk hours (PSE Sales, Srvc/Distribution Associate)?

I'm considering applying for a job at the post office. The opening is for a PSE Sales, Service, Distribution Associate. The job posting says "Hours: Varies". On average, what time do the Sales/Distribution Associates have to clock in at the facility? I know some City Carriers have to be at the facility really early, like up to 2 hours or more so they can sort and case mail. Do clerks also have to be there that early, or do they get there closer to when the lobby opens?

    Sales/service/distribution associates, formerly known as window clerks, hours do vary, depending on the hours of operation of the facility at which they work. By "hours: varies", it can also mean that you may or may not work the same number of hours per day. PSE clerks are guaranteed only 2 hours on days they are scheduled to work and most do not work a full 40-hour week.
