53 Washington Post Offices participating in Thursday hiring event

The U.S. Postal Service is searching for nearly 2,000 new employees at job fairs held at 252 Post Office locations throughout Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Washington on Thursday, Apr. 13.

In Washington, 53 Post Office locations are participating in the job fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. including locations in Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and many others. Each location is listed at the bottom of this story.

“There is an urgent need for mail carriers, clerks and mail handlers. We offer great benefits, good pay, security, and the ability to expand your own horizons with multiple career paths and advancement opportunities,” Washington district manager Pam Cook said in a news release.

No appointment is needed. The job fair is open to anyone who is interested.

Human resources employees will be available to help attendees answer questions about benefits, qualifications and the application. There will also be laptops available for job-seekers to submit their applications immediately, if desired. Applications are accepted online at www.usps.com/careers.

Starting pay depends on the job. Starting pay for mail carriers ranges between $19 and $20 per hour paid bi-weekly.

Full and part-time jobs are available.

“Applicants must be 18 years old — in some instances, interested candidates can also be 16 with a high school diploma/GED— available to work weekends and holidays, and be able to pass drug screening and a criminal background investigation,” the USPS said in the news release.
