“The key to success for any football team, including the Ducks and the Beavers, is the consistent recruitment of quality players,” said USPS Human Resources Manager Amy Bennett. “In the case of this Mega Blitz hiring event, we’re looking for 2,000 superstar recruits to help stock our roster and lead the Postal Service to victory on the field of customer service!”

The complete list of 111 Northwest post offices hosting job fairs during the hiring Mega Blitz is on the following page.

The available postal positions, which offer starting pay from $18.92 to $21.19 an hour, are great opportunities for anyone seeking fast-paced, rewarding work environments with good pay, and are a first step that could lead to long-term careers for the Postal Service.

“As outlined in our USPS Delivering for America plan, we’re modernizing and continually adapting to the changing needs of our customers,” said Delgado. “In order to do that, we need motivated, dedicated people to join us to deliver for our local communities and our nation.

There’s never been a better time to join the Postal Service. Throughout the COVID pandemic, our employees have played essential roles in their communities. When people have been confined to their homes, when stores and supermarkets have experienced shortages or been shut down, we delivered medicines to house-bound seniors, household supplies to those unable to shop at stores, and COVID tests to anyone who needed them.

“We are a vital lifeline between our local communities and the outside world.

“We invite interested applicants to attend one of our job fairs if they want to join our winning team. If they’re looking for meaningful careers, and not just another job, we want them to join us!”

USPS personnel will be onsite at all job fairs to answer questions, assist potential applicants and provide detailed information about available positions.

USPS employment requirements include the following:

  • Must be 18 years old at the time of appointment or 16 years old with a high school diploma.
  • Must be able to pass a criminal background check, drug screening, and medical assessment.
  • Must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or citizen of American Samoa or other U.S. Territory.
  • Must provide recent employment history.
  • Must have a safe driving record (if applicable to the position).

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations
