    Current CITY LETTER CARRIER in Mobile, Alabama

    The retirement package is not as good as it used to be

    You will only get benefits once you make regular which could take years if you make it that far management will do everything they can to try and push you and get rid of you. Overall a poor experience working there.

    accumulated vacation time, but very hard to use when they ask you to work everyday. They do cash out your vacation hours on your one year - so they can "fire" and "rehire" you. This helps them avoid making you a full-time career employee

    USPS is able to not pay any benefits by hiring a continuous stream of temporary workers with limits of approximately three months.

    Great benefits for the time spent working

    Current PSE Mail Processing Clerk in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

    I don't have benefits. PSEs don't receive benefits until after the first year. But I hear the health insurance is pretty good but expensive.

    As a City Carrier Assistant, you don't get any of the benefits a "Career Carrier" receives.

    Former casual mailhandler in Chicago, Illinois

    If you are not a career employee,meaning your just a casual(contracted usually about 1yr)then the benefits package doesn't apply to you.The post office is a very busy place and if you are hurt and you aren't a regular employee,they will fire you so they don't have to pay your medical bills,so wicked of them in my opinion.

    The worse thing about the benefits package for a CCA is that there isn't one. Even if you work 72 hrs a week, you still won't get anything more than medical, and that's only because it's required by law.
