Everyone will always tell you "wow, you work for the postal service! That's a good job!" It's not a good job. As an RCA, your benefits are limited. You can sign up for health insurance, which is great. But you get no PTO, no sick leave, and aren't earning any times toward a retirement. RCA is basically a permanent part time position, unless you're lucky. In order to move up to a full time positon, another carrier needs to quit or be fired, retire, or die. You could be working as an RCA for years, just to not receive any real benefits other than insurance. If you're going to do this job, I recommend having a second job. Which is sometimes difficult because you never know when you might get called into work for the post office, so you should probably get an evening second job if possible. I usually only work 2 days per week, which is ridiculous.
I'm currently still working as an RCA, but have been submitting applications for a full time job so I can leave this bogus position! Being an RCA is a joke and a waste of time, which is why USPS is having a high turn over rate for this position.
high hourly wage
literally everything else
