USPS Hired Employee (s) to Monitor and Review Social Media for the “Social Media Advisory Panel”

A few months ago USPS posted a job announcement called SOCIAL CARE ANALYST, EAS-19, in WASHINGTON DC:

 A few of the requirements included:

  • Knowledge of social media platforms including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest and Snapchat.
  • The ability to use social media, print, broadcasting, online monitoring and engagement tools.
  • Knowledge of practices and procedures needed to grow social media presence and methods to engage clients in online dialogue to promote product, protect the USPS brand, and build online communities.
  • The ability to work and interact with customers and employees in a fast paced digital environment.
  • The ability to communicate orally and in writing sufficient to identify and prioritize social media conversations to others.
  • The ability to analyze data, report results, and make recommendations based on the findings.

SALARY RANGE: $53,995.00 – $87,595.00  Annually

 The Social Care Analyst “Communicates data findings to the Social Media Advisory Panel.”  I wonder who those people are?

 The USPS OIG has already hired people to monitor individuals’ social media accounts.  Some postal employees have already been nailed for material found on their social media accounts, like Red Bank (New Jersey) Postmaster under fire for hateful Facebook posts.

  1. Maybe, they should think about hiring people that want to work instead of tweeting and being on the phone all day.

  2. :…Some postal employees have already been nailed for material found on their social media accounts…”

    Employ more cops to control bad publicity, way to go Megan.

  3. My Postmaster is already doing this and has been for months….as a “pilot project” i assumed. Having to do at least three hours of this a day.

  4. They are just looking to see who is telling the truth about the PO so then they can start using micro manage tactics to harass and screw over people. Any & all postal programs are set up to dominate and control almost any aspect of a persons life, these things are 99% eventually corrupted for a evil purpose, seen it year after year that’s why the rank & file have no faith in the so called leaders. Just look to what happened with that Lean Sigma 6 where even the guy that invented it stopped and no one uses it anymore except guess who? Just another tool of repression.
    Just a matter of time till the PO corporate trolls show up here, telling us how great it is and nothing is wrong with the toxic working culture.
