    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.

    This was the best benefits package I've ever had. Definitely the cheapest for a whole family, especially when you have the union preferred insurance. It's the only thing I miss about the post office.

    The union collectively bargains for an excellent health care package that is rife with options to satisfy whatever your needs would be. The premiums are deducted from your paycheck and are reasonable.

    FEHB health insurance is very good. They give you the option of a high or low cost ppo plan from different providers. The retirement plan is also high quality.

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

    The best thing about the benefits is you have many different health benefits to choose from that will fit your needs. You start off with 1 week vacation and it grows up to 5 weeks over time. They have a great thrift savings plan (401k).

    Accepting any sort of health benefits at the USPS as a CCA is essentially a pay cut. Annual leave is nice if you can get it.

    Current Data Conversion Operator in Salt Lake City, Utah

    No benefits til a year
