    You get sick leave but when you use it, you are frowned upon

    The benefits package has retirement and medical insurance which is a plus

    Pension and Health insurance are good for now, however their is discussion to make major changes

    Good vacation benefits, and matching 401k. Nice to also have a retirement pension as well, and the ability to continue health insurance when retired.

    Very affordable health insurance. Thrift savings plan basically doubles your money.

    It keeps increasing a large percentage every year.

    Former CCA in Nashville, Tennessee

    As a CCA you are offered absolutely NONE! No insurance, sick leave, 401K
    Nothing! You are employed 360 days, fired, then re-hired in 5 days each year to start all over again

    Current Employee in Dallas, Texas

    The Postal Service has generous benefits. Several health insurance plans to fit your family needs. 5% Match to 401K plus retirement benefits. Vacation normal with outside businesses. Sick pay, annual leave. The only thing lacking is any type of disability insurance, either long term or short term.

    Current Mail Handler Assistant in Tampa, Florida

    As a MHA- You only accrue Annual Leave and you have access to EAP (counseling) which believe me, while working there, YOU WILL NEED IT! NO OTHER BENEFITS ARE AVAILABLE UNTIL YOU MAKE REGULAR which could take years.

    To get perks you have to work over 90 days. The good perks are after you go career which takes 1-10 years
