The Northern Ohio District of the United States Postal Service is announcing new opportunities for employment in the United States Postal Service.
The City Carrier Assistant (CCA) is a new category of non-career employee with a path to possible future employment as a career letter carrier. CCAs are appointed for a term of 360 calendar days and may be reappointed for another 360-day term after a five-day break in service.
From January 23 - 28, 2013, online applications will be accepted for CCA positions. The positions entail all the duties normally performed by a city letter carrier.
Salary and limited benefits include $15.00 an hour, paid vacation days, and eligibility for health care benefits as required by law or after the first 360-day term.
Applicants must create an external profile at http://usps.com/employment, fill out the online application, and follow the instructions to take Postal Examination 473.
All applicants must qualify on Examination 473 to be eligible for selection to a CCA vacancy. Qualified applicants must have a valid state driver's license, demonstrate and maintain a safe driving record, and successfully pass a pre-employment drug screening.
Applicants will need an email address and should check their email frequently for further instructions.
