The United States Postal Service recently distributed postcards to customers throughout Burbank announcing plans to hire City Carrier Assistants (CCA) to deliver mail in the community and the surrounding area.
According to the USPS website, “The CCA is a new category of non-career employee and is the path to possible future employment as a full-time carrier with career employee status.”
CCAs are appointed for a term not to exceed 360 days. Starting pay is $15 an hour with benefits that include vacation days, salary increases and the eventual opportunity to enroll in a health benefit plan.
The USPS website states, “A city carrier assistant delivers and collects mail on foot or by vehicle under varying road and weather conditions in a prescribed area; maintains professional and effective public relations with customers and others, requiring a general familiarity with postal laws, regulations, products and geography of the area.”
“The employee will be required to work Saturdays and weekdays as needed. May include Sundays and holidays. He/she must be available to work assigned tours, scheduled days and must be available to work on short notice.”
The position requires that applicants pass a written exam and a pre-employment drug screening. Applicants must be at least 18 years-old, a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, have a valid state driver’s license with a safe driving record and at least two years of documented driving experience.
The USPS lists these instructions to apply for a CCA position:
Applicants will need to register and create an online candidate profile. A valid email address is required and will be used by the USPS to coordinate application related activity.
