Just wondering how are the pay scale determined ? I noticed there's 26 levels , is it determined by the years you been working with the postal service and goes up every year ?

one year - level 1 ?
two years - level 2 ?

The pay seems low compare to being a mail carrier ... even TE carriers start out at $22.12/hr
and level 1 on EAS is less than $25,000 a year ... any input ?

EAS pay schedule is set up for all levels of management.  most levels below level 10 are not full-time.  level 7 is what most casuals get (there are execptions don't post some get more I know).
 
most supervisors are level 17.
managers aof post offices are any where from 16 all the way up to 25.  level 26 used to be for any doctors that are employed and 58 postmasters. 
 
PCES = postal carreer executive service is for managers of very large postal plants and area managers and inculdes the post mastre general.  this pay schedule is not published.

FYI - time in the position no longer has any bearing on their pay.  Several years ago they went to "pay for performance" and stopped using steps.  The level is assigned to the position based on size and revenue of the post office or type of position.

The levels overlap considerably.  As one PM in a L16 could be topped out in their salary, but a new L18 PM could be making less.  With that said, time in position does tend to allow for increases in pay within their level.

Some PMs thought with their upgrade of office (L16's being bumped up to L18's) and the increase in salary level that they were going to get a raise.  Didn't work out that way for many.
