    The benefits package is excellent. You get medical,dental,and vision plans.That is about all I can say about the subject.

    Current Employee in Des Moines, Iowa

    Good health benefits and paid time off schedules once regular employee. Employer match for government style pension plan not 401(k). Gaining benefits and better time off is only a matter of time served. No merit-based bonuses in union based jobs.

    You have to use your own vehicle, but you are paid mileage that helps offset the cost of gas and maintenance costs.

    Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Benefits are pretty good, but not as good as they were before they cut the ability for a pension. Insurance is affordable but we are contributing more than before.

    Great company to work for

  • Oct 8, 2014
    Current City Carrier Assistant in Tonawanda, New York State

    Only one choice of health insurance.

    Current Employee in Columbus, Ohio

    The benefits package is probably the best part about working here. Good health insurance and great time off.

    Former Employee in Sacramento, California

    very good vacation, sick leave, health care benefits and promotion opportunities if desired. Excellent retirement benefits of long term workers 30 plus years

  • Oct 5, 2014
    Former Transitional Employee - Letter Carrier in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania

    The money was great but there were no benefits other than 1 week off per year. Management was decent about working with you if you needed time off so long as it suited them.
