JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - If you or someone you know is looking for a job, especially one that pays $12 an hour and more, then head to your local post office.

The U.S. Postal Service is now accepting applications for a variety of temporary jobs in Arkansas.

The part-time positions will offer salaries of $12 to $16.98 per hour with variable hours and days, including holidays and weekends.

According to a news release from the USPS, while the positions are non-career with limited benefits, they can "lead to a rewarding career appointment with the full benefits of a federal employee."

Among the limited benefits are paid vacation days, contractual pay raises, and access to the USPS non-career employee health benefits plan.
