    'Across from the post office' means 'across the road/street from the post office', or 'opposite the post office'.

    So he's been working in a shop/bar/office that is situated opposite the post office.

    I think you may have misunderstood something if he appeared to say that it means "all day".

    I agree with heypresto. "Across from the post office" on this sentence means the person is working at a place across the street, that place can be any type of shop.
