"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."
