The Postal Service is looking to fill positions within the organization’s mail processing, delivery, transportation and maintenance branches immediately.

“As part of our innovative 10-year-plan, Delivering for America, the Postal Service is focused on building a more stable and empowered workforce. Our employees are our greatest asset, and we are investing in our new employees by providing robust training and on-the-job support,” a news release said.

Those interested in working for USPS must be 18 years old or older and must be able to pass a drug screening and a criminal background investigation, a news release said.

Some positions may require an exam, while others may have a driving requirement.

In 2021, about 13.2 billion letters, cards, flats and packages passed through the USPS system during the holiday season.
