Employee Comments

    Current Employee in Minneapolis, Minnesota

    I don't receive full benefits from the United States Post Office but it's well known that they offer benefits such as sick days, holiday pay, discounts for goods and services from various companies.

    Current CITY LETTER CARRIER in South Bend, Indiana

    It's all pretty good except getting them started is a real pain. They are very unorganized.

    Current City Letter Carrier in Saint Louis, Missouri

    The USPS has a reputation for having good benefits, which is true. Vacation time jumps to 20 days per year after three years (13 days/year for the first three years), with paid sick leave (over one day/month that has no accumulative limit), and paid federal holidays. Health benefits are affordable, and the federal thrift savings plan allows you to contribute to your retirement with 5% matching from the USPS.

    Current Employee in Hinesville, Georgia

    I don't have full benefits as of yet, but I do earn 4 hours of annual leave for every 40 hours worked.

    Former Employee in Kearny, New Jersey

    The best part of this job was the diversity of co workers. Also over time was frequently available.

    Former Employee in Orlando, Florida

    Excellent vacation and sick leave.

  • Nov 26, 2014
    Former Employee in Los Angeles, California

    You get to join a union to offset the "right-to-work" law in Utah.

  • Nov 23, 2014
    Current Mailhandler in Chicago, Illinois

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

  • Nov 21, 2014
    Current Mail Processing Clerk in Charlotte, North Carolina

    many choices for health insurance, life insurance, etc

  • Nov 20, 2014
    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.
