Not a very good job unless you are a full time carrier.
Rural Carrier Associate (Current Employee) – Virginia – August 14, 2018
It is not an easy job, yet it does get "easier".
Be prepared before you apply to this job.
I have seen many people just came in and quit within a month. There is a reason why you get paid 17.78 hr. You must not be lazy and be able to handle a lot of pressure. If your job performance doesn't get better within 90days, I predict you might either quit before you even reach that 90das, or get fired due to your 90 day provationary period policy; although they might decide to keep you since they lack in manpower thorugh out the year. Further, during the christmas season, you will basically work from 5am till 8pm the entire month, yet it also depends on your region, but most likely you will be working average 6-80 hours a week. During the normal season, as a relief or pt carrier, you will be working average 60hours aweek. Sure, the money is good, but there is no benefits nor any insurance unless you are a full time carrier. I make about appx NET 1300-1500 biweekly. That is when I work 60hours 6days aweek, with no weekends off.
