The Postal Service is hiring for more than 40,000 seasonal positions as preparations continue for the winter holidays, the organization’s peak season for mail and package deliveries.
The opportunities include letter and rural carrier, mail handler and driver positions.
“Our entire organization is focused on delivering a successful holiday season. To make this happen, we need great people to join us to deliver for our local communities and our nation,” said Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. “The Postal Service offers many opportunities for seasonal employment. For many, a seasonal role can be the start of an exciting career with the Postal Service.”
USPS offers competitive compensation packages, on-the-job training and opportunities for advancement.
The organization is hosting 58 job fairs in select cities across the nation where potential employees can immediately apply for seasonal jobs.
Preregistration, social distancing and face masks are required to attend the fairs. Those who wish to find or register for a fair should go to usps.com/hiring.
The Postal Service also plans to lease millions of additional square feet of mail and package sortation facilities.
Additionally, the organization is installing new processing equipment to accommodate higher mail and package volumes.
