USPS Now Hiring for Full-Time and Temporary Positions Across the Country

The U.S. Postal Service is now accepting applications for a variety of full-time and temporary job Post Office positions across the country.  The Postal Service plans to fill these full-time, part-time, career, non-career positions soon.

The positions are career and non-career, with full, limited benefits, but can lead to a rewarding career appointment with the full benefits of a federal employee.  Note: Limited benefits for some temporary job Post Office positions include paid vacation days, contractual pay raises, and access to the USPS non-career Employee Health Benefits Plan.


SALARY RANGE: $20.91 – $27.65 per hour paid bi-weekly

SALARY RANGE: $42,560 – $57,376 annual salary paid bi-weekly

SALARY RANGE: $54,899 – $63,215 annual salary paid bi-weekly

CCAs may be required to work any day of the week, including weekends and holidays as scheduled. CCAs hold temporary appointments for periods not-to-exceed 360 days. Subsequent appointments after a 5 day break in service may be offered but are not guaranteed and should not be expected because the use of CCAs is discretionary and subject to business needs.

DRIVING REQUIRED: Applicants must have a valid state driver’s license, a safe driving record, and at least two years of unsupervised experience driving passenger cars or larger. The driving must have taken place in the U.S. or its possessions or territories or in U.S. military installations worldwide.

SALARY RANGE: $16.06 per hour paid bi-weekly


Window training is required after hire, followed by an end-of-training test on which employee must qualify to remain employed. Postal Support Employees (PSE) hold temporary appointments for periods not-to-exceed 360 days. Subsequent appointments after a 5 day break in service may be offered but are not guaranteed and should not be expected because the use of PSEs is discretionary and subject to business needs. PSEs can be scheduled any hours and the position is intended to be very flexible, including weekends and holidays as needed. PSEs must be available to work when needed.

SALARY RANGE: $16.62-$16.98 per hour paid bi-weekly

  1. in the New York Metro/Long Island area the drop out rate the first 90 days is around 80-85% for letter carrier………….they beg them to stay and when they are told NO….they offer them a fallback position at one of the plants………… people are funny though, they walk around the plant all night looking at their IPhones…..and if the stupidvisors tell them to get off they just yell and curse them out…….the new postal circus. the cliff guffy dream team.

  2. Millennials aren’t going to do this kind of work for $16 an hour.

    They’ll live at home and be a barista at Starbucks or be on food stamps and welfare before working a job where they have to bust their ass.

  3. How can they be hiring full time employees when they are currently in the process of abolishing and excessing thousands of employees….something is wrong, very wrong with this picture!

    • Simple, you get rid of the high priced people at the top step and bring in your friends, relatives, and they become untouchables, and they have doors opened for them, and they don’t need to file grievances, and the hoi poloi? Let them eat cake. Been retired for seven years, I see the forest now that I am not so close to the trees. Put your time in, put your papers in.

  4. if you are young…….go learn a trade. electrician, plumber, air conditioning HAVC, carpenter………….the post office is just the HMS Titanic waiting to sink. Go On Budget and put the stake in their heart! don’t waste your time in this communist gulag!

  5. go apply anywhere and tell them you wan to be treated like a rock star and you’ll still be unemployed like you probably are right now waiting for the perfect work environment that wont hurt your delicate little feelings, it really is that simple.

  6. It really is sad when it really comes down to the common sense of treating others the way you would like to be treated is something usps mgmt continues to ignore with impunity. It will be my pleasure to help document as many of these problematic situations, one grievance at a time and hold them accountable for their actions against these workers trying to serve the public. That being said, it’s still pretty sad that the Unions and their representatives have to resort to this…usps mgmt is trying to turn back the clock on basic human rights at work, and is wasting this companies time and resources in doing so…they will not be allowed to get away with it on this dudes watch…

  7. Word is out in the city, people come in and already know how to play the game. Phony IOD’s (can we say Dr. Summeroff), banging in at will to stay welfare qualified, playing on the phone half the time (why not, the bosses are all doing it) and playing that all important race card at the first hint of trouble.

    The inmates are running the asylum, it’s over folks. Hope you had a nice career, I’m just hanging out for the last punch myself. I’ve decided, Congress can gut the retirement, I have to go anyway. It was a waste of a life.

    • It was not entirely a waste of a life, after a few years on retirement you’ll get back your sense of humor.

      • Retirees are not safe from APWU / Congress HB756. Your benefits will be super expensive if this bill passes.

  8. Retired postal worker here. I highly advise against applying for any postal job. Forced OT, forced holiday work, crappy hours, crappy days off (when you get them)…. postal management is absolute scum, and if you become permanent full time, your salary is just a fraction of what other postal workers make. Other than all of that, it’s great. 😫😫

    • Scarlet, what operating system are you using? You must have Internet Explorer to be able to apply. That is the only compatible system unfortunately.

  9. I create my account and profile. I try to apply for a job but the apply button is not active. I came back to my profile but there is not link to go to do my assignment.
    Please help me to able to do all the processes correctly.

  10. I worked for the USPS- Springfield, Oh location and it was the worst working experience. They treat you like an animal, gives you orders, doesn’t care about your health or well being, does not care if you have a family or kids. I was told by my supervisor that the PO was more of a priority than my children. I have a small case of plantar fasciitis and would have been worse if I did not quit! I worked 7 days a week 10-12hrs a day! My life began to fall apart and it was all about the PO. I can go on and on but DO NOT APPLY!

  11. I had one former letter carrier and one former clerk as supervisors, they knew the business, they knew how to treat people, and they got things done, lets see, two of my fingers on one of my hands are used in counting these two, hey I’ve got lots of fingers left over! Whats up with that? Most of the bozos used their time as supervisors learning how screw things up and how things really work, AND how to piss off people by being STUPID!

        • It makes no sense for the postal unions to support HB756 as this hits retirees hard.The union presidents were even silent on Donahoe’s lame brained plan several years ago to take USPS employees (except upper management) out of FEHB and start a USPS management run healthcare system which we all know would have been a disaster run by the incompetents at L’Enfant Plaza.

  12. The way the Postal Service treats employees the only reason anyone applies for a job is because they are desperate for work. How hard would it be for management to pretend workers are human beings? How hard would it be to treat employees with respect? We will never live to see that day! If management stopped taking their prick pills with their coffee and donuts, perhaps a small chance.

    • ive got over 30 years and let me tell u while what you say is true as far as management is concerned, ive enjoyed my job and if you think its easy finding a job that pays what the PO does, you would be doing it right now! so stop being a pussy and go to work, and if you think other employers are going to wet nurse you, you’re sadly mistaken. welcome to the real world!

      • x-What about all of the lazy,overpaid EAS employees? It’s about time to get a PMG in there that will cut this gravy train like Runyon did in the early 90’s.

  13. LOLOLOL !! No, the USPS is TRYING to hire. But the word is out and no one is applying.

    Why ?

    Because of the horrible way postal mgmt. treats people.

    It really is that simple.

    • Turnover for all “Associate” and “Support Employee” positions is over 60% so how does having a revolving door benefit the Postal Service?
