(September 16, 2014) The Postal Service is recruiting more people to serve in city carrier assistant (CCA) positions, non-career jobs that offer a stepping stone toward permanent employment with USPS.
CCAs fill in for regular carriers on their routes and perform other mail delivery and collection tasks. Since the position was created in 2013, more than 9,000 CCAs have been converted to career status.
In a new recruitment video, CCAs discuss the job and why they enjoy it, even when it’s challenging. “It looks like an easy job, it really does,” says Alexandria, VA, CCA Juan Butler. “But when you’re out there, you find out it’s not as easy as you think it is.”
CCAs deliver and collect mail on foot or by vehicle, dealing with the same challenges that regular carriers face. Niagara Falls, NY, CCA Alexandra Dell said the job isn’t for the faint of heart. “If you’re a lazy person, I would not suggest this job,” she said.
If you know someone who may be interested in a CCA job, encourage them to visit the USPS Careers site.
