None if you're an Rca the only time you will get time off is if your a full time employee which varies from post office to post office. Generally it can take any where from 5-20 years to go full time. The average I hear is around 10 years but again varies.

You do not become a regular after a year as a CCA. If a regular retires you can apply for their position.

Yes, you can expect to be worked 40+ hours at your home office unless it has few routes and is fully staffed of RCAs. Failing that, you can opt to substitute at other offices but don't expect proper route training or assistance....oftentimes you are thrown to the wolves. As an RCA, you have a limited time (90 days maybe?) to sign up for health and dental benefits once hired. I was not told this in training, so I thought I would not be eligible until after a year of service. As a result, the "system" electronically signed for me, that I had opted out which I had to fight for reinstatement. USPS contribution is a decent amount which makes these benefits way more affordable than the open market. My husband and I have current medical and dental coverage thru United Healthcare. $100 monthly for me as employee and $450 a month for my husband as a dependent. The premium is automatically deducted from your biweekly paycheck. Vision insurance is not included. You need to make sure you get enough work as an RCA to cover these costs, otherwise the coverage will be canceled after so many months of insufficient funds and any and all medical treatment costs will become due for you to pay out of pocket.
