“There’s so many opportunities like for advancement, if you want to change jobs, if you want to go into management. So I took the management path. I’ve had a couple different jobs. But I’ve been in management for most of the time that I’ve been with the post office,” said Katrina Poxson, postmaster for USPS-South Bend.

Starting pay for city carriers is $18.92 per hour and $19.06 for rural carriers.
