Battle Ground, WA — Do you need a better paying job with better benefits, security, and dozens of career choices? Then you should work for the Postal Service.

As a Postal Service employee you get something that other organizations can’t provide, the chance to make a positive impact in your community. It’s something we’ve done for nearly 250 years. More than 644,000 other people across the country already know the benefits of being a Postal employee, and we’re also one of the largest employers of veterans in the nation.

While other companies are reducing their workforce, the Postal Service is actively hiring. Our goal is to welcome up to 1,000 new employees over the next few months across the state of Washington. The need is especially urgent for mail carriers, mail handlers, and clerks.

To help reach that goal, we’re hosting a job fair for the next three Saturdays at the Battle Ground Post office. Anyone who needs a new career path or is looking for a first-time job, please make plans to visit the upcoming job fair:

Saturday, Feb. 4, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 11, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 18, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Battleground Post Office
418 W. Main St
Battle Ground 98604

No appointment is necessary. The fair will help fill open positions for Battle Ground and the surrounding communities. All job fairs are open to anyone interested in a Postal career. And our employees will help locate jobs across the state for potential applicants as needed.

Postal Service Human Resources employees will be available to help job fair attendees with benefits, qualifications, and application questions. Laptops will be available on the day of event for immediate application submission.

Our employees are our greatest asset, and we are investing in our new personnel by providing robust training and on-the-job support. The Postal Service offers stability, competitive wages and benefits, and career advancement opportunities.

Starting pay varies depending on the job. But starting pay for carriers ranges between $19 and $20 paid bi-weekly. Applications are accepted online at www.usps.com/careers.
