What's the average weekly hours a mail handler assistant gets?

Read 46 answers

  • You’ll get at least 40 hours, and that seems to be the case no matter your location. MHAs & MHs are pretty much the first point of contact with incoming mail, and they’re in no way limited to one task, so as long as there is mail coming in and needing to go out, Mail Handlers will be working many, many hours.

  • I get hella hours because I make sure I’m available and answer the phone in situations where others don’t answer. I average 45 hours a week with no sweat AND I’m at a smaller location but it’s a rural postal office and the hours stay open! Everyone that is regular are on their way out of the door so they take any and every chance to call off to go on vacation, union work, whatever!!! And we run the routes!

  • 40 hours a week at least

  • 40 plus a week if you're working at the usps plant as oppose to a neighborhood post office and be prepared to stay an extra 2 hours if you're not a regular at the plant. Just when you think your shift is over a supervisor from the next tour will tap you on the shoulder and tell you 2 stay
