US post office hiring career carriers

This is a copy/paste of an email I received at my work. (I'm not on the mail handling side though) This IS a bit of a big thing, as normally carriers must wait for a fair amount of time before they get full benefits.

For the first time since 2006, the San Jose Post Office has opened the rolls for full-time, career letter carrier positions. Applications are available on the website and search for Keywords: “CARRIER SAN JOSE.’

New hires start the first day with excellent benefits, such as being covered by the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) where they can contribute to a Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) – similar to a 401 (k) plan, and get a 5% matching contribution by the USPS; Employees immediately have the option to enroll into the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) as well as automatic coverage in the Federal employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI).

If that is not enough, employees have the option for dental, vision, long-term care insurance and a flexible spending account to cover eligible out-of-pocket health care and dependent care (day care) expenses.

The pay could very well be the best part, with a range of $39, 615 to $64,413 that includes 10 paid federal holidays and accrued vacation and sick leave.

Whether it’s your first career or next career, the San Jose Post Office is a great place to work that provides job security, career advancement opportunities and generous benefits.

Couple extra things I'll note...
First, the pay rates are "base pay". For the enthusiastic, overtime adds up quite decently.

This pay scale is a national wage. That means if you decide to transfer later to BFE/anywhere in the country, your wage stays the same. (Alaska and Hawaii gets more)

Something to think about.
