The CCA position is so NOT worth it. It's stressful and the workload is ridiculous!!!!! The benefits are very poor. I left a job paying .50 more and with awesome benefits thinking I was walking into a career. Worst decision ever!!!! But I have mad RESPECT for postal carriers their job sucks.

At the particular office that I worked, I was forced into working every single day, getting a day off was as difficult as pulling teeth. I was made to feel guilty for even asking for a day off, and looked at like a whiner if I mentioned how tired I was. Time off had gotten stolen from me by other employees and supervisors. If I got sick, it was held over my head, and it was just overall a terrible place to work. I had to kiss my family life goodbye. I would not recommend working here unless you are stoic with no sense of self preservation, otherwise, this place will turn you into a lifeless creature. They do need all the help they can get there though, so if you don't mind getting used up until you break, go for it.

A RCA position is a temp job with no benefits!! The hard reliable worker's get all of the work that no other RCA want to do. I have worked as a RCA at my post office for over two year's and couldn't even get hired as a CCA at my own Post Office even though they had eleven positions available!! A RCA position is the lowest position in the Post Office with no advancement opportunities what so ever!! You also get promoted on merit not performance!! All you get is a check.

I was a ssa at the post office in Hondo. They continued reducing hours. I was working 6 days a week, average 30 hours a week 4-6 hours in a 12 hour span. I was offered a full-time position if I was willing to go to the distribution center in San Antonio. I did, and 6 months later they abolished the jobs, reorganizing and I left because I did not want to relocate to some unknown location, took my TSP and moved to Tyler Texas to start my own business. I had been with the post office 17 years. When I left it meant nothing to anyone. No one cared. We were continuously told we were nothing but a number, easily replaced. When my business failed and I tried to go back I could not find anyone to help me..the union in the end hurt me and I feel contributed to the loss of my job. If I'd stayed at the post office in Hondo I was at least working and they wouldn't have abolished my job.

I was a waiter before I became a CCA, it was by far the worst experience I've had a job, yes JOB not career! I was paid 16.78 an hour which is peanuts, I relocated to the NYC NJ area and worked in Hoboken. My office focused on speed and getting off the clock, so on top of being stressed and disrespected by the managers I didn't make much money and worked a second job. One day I snapped when I manager began yelling at me about coming back late after I had a full route and over 50 certifieds! I lost it and walked out and haven't gone back. I was only there for three months.
