"I am paid well for my position; I work hard and very long hours. If you work in a small community or for a smaller post office, you probably will have less opportunity to work since there is only so many routes and homes to deliver to. I imagine those employees do not get paid as much, unfortunately. Since I work in a metro area, I can basically work as much as I want to, although I enjoy my downtime when possible."

"The pay at USPS is good for the work we do. Regulars are guaranteed 8 hours along with overtime offered. Assistants are guaranteed 4 hours but are required to work overtime so assistants have a higher salary than regulars. It all depends on how many hours and overtime is put into the week. Holiday pay is offered to regulars who have holidays off. Assistants work on holidays but get paid for the hours they put in. Other positions such as trainers and union representatives are offered a couple dollars more than others. Managers and supervisors make as much or a little more than the trainers and union representatives."
