    Current Mailhandler in Chicago, Illinois

    The 5% matching is awesome. You begin paying into the Thrift Savings Plan immediately upon career employment.

    Current Mail Processing Clerk in Charlotte, North Carolina

    many choices for health insurance, life insurance, etc

    Current Sub RCA in Baxter, Minnesota

    I get none of these since I'm a sub RCA. I have to wait 5-8 years before an position may be opening for me to qualify.

    Current Rural Carrier in Saint Paul, Minnesota

    Health insurance is probably better than many businesses offer but costs more every year. You're able to manage your own 401K investments. Sufficient vacation and sick leave.

  • Nov 16, 2014
    Current Sales, Service and Distribution Associate in Yonkers, New York State

    The best thing about the Postal Service is the ability to contribute to the TSP which is a federal version of a 401(k).

  • Nov 13, 2014
    Current SSDA in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania

    Paid Holidays, 3 weeks guaranteed paid vacation.

  • Nov 5, 2014
    Former CITY LETTER CARRIER in Edinburg, Texas

    Excellent Health Insurance ( Blue Cross Blue Shield )

  • Nov 4, 2014
    Former Employee in Grand Rapids, Michigan

    The benefits and retirement package

  • Nov 3, 2014
    Current Postmaster in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

    Earn both annual and sick leave, choice of dozens of health care plans, TSP (401K) matching, offers dental and eye.

  • Oct 31, 2014
    Former Marketing Specialist in Washington, District of Columbia

    The benefits are adequate - neither lacking nor superlative.
