They earn 1 hour leave for every 20 hours worked.  It's just called leave - not annual or sick leave.  After 1 year and a 6 day break in service, they can get health insurance but they have to pay the full cost.  The Postal Service doesn't kick any in.

Forgot to mention, they earn a maximum of 4 hours leave per pay period.  At the end of their 1 year appointment, they get a check for any remaining leave they have accumulated and not used.  Then they start over in their next appointment.

Wow.... post office goes to lengths to make sure that the "non career" employees don't benefit for their hard work, as well as trying to pull the benefits from "career employees.  Sounds like they are already a private company.  There is just no such thing as loyalty anymore.

Technically the USPS is a private company.

Just like TE Carrier but they pay you way less. They just want to make sure you barely make end meet when you work for them, so they will get PFP or bonuses. I worked as clerk before, they make you coming early in the morning, make you work hard labor work and ask you to leave so you only work 4-5 hrs a day, I don't like it when they are sitting on the asses and watching you work and constantly given you orders like you need to do this you need to do that, hurry up so we can make it in time.

I'd have em go home after they've done their work!!!! No sense in having them sit around all day, and get paid for 8 hours of work, when they've only done 2!!!!

Most of them are exempt so they would love to go home after 2 hours since they still get paid for 8 hrs.
