Sunday is the deadline to apply for “city carrier assistant” jobs with the U.S. Postal Service.

There are 300 positions to fill in Western New York, according to Karen Mazurkiewicz, a Postal Service spokeswoman.

The jobs represent a new category of non-career employees with a path to possible future employment as a career letter carrier. They are appointed for a term of 360 calendar days and may be reappointed for another 360-day term after a five-day break in service.

Salary and limited benefits include $15 an hour, paid vacation days and eligibility for health care benefits as required by law, or after the first 360-day term.

Applicants must have a valid driver’s license, good driving record and two years driving experience.
