MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Post Office will post more of the new City Carrier Assistant (CCA) positions Friday, December 20th.

Jobseekers in the community are encouraged to build their online profile and apply here.

The positions will open on December 20, 2013 and close at midnight on January 13, 2014

The CCA is a new category of non-career employee and is the path to possible future employment as a full-time mail carrier with Postal career employee status. Starting pay is $15.30 per hour.

CCAs will be appointed for a term not to exceed 360 calendar days. At the end of the term, CCAs are eligible for reappointment for another 360-day term. CCAs will enjoy benefits including salary increases, vacation time, and an opportunity to enroll in a health benefits plan after 360 days of employment.

Positions are posted online at http://usps.com/employment. All applications must be submitted online. Immediately after an application is accepted, applicants will be directed to information to assist in preparing for the Postal Entrance Examination 473.

Although this is the only test support material made available by the Postal Service, applicants might also choose to acquire additional test practice material from outside sources such as a library, bookstore, or online search.

A minimum score of 70 (excluding veterans’ preference points) is required to be considered for the position. Higher scores are given hiring preference, so it is very important to be prepared and do well on this exam.

To be considered for employment, an applicant must also have a valid state driver’s license, demonstrate and maintain a safe driving record, and successfully pass a pre-employment drug screening.
