Read an Excerpt

Considering a Career with the Postal Service?

Founded on September 26, 1789, the Post Office Department became a permanent federal agency in 1792. Today’s United States Postal Service (USPS)—transformed into an independent establishment of the executive branch in 1971—has become one of the largest and most efficient entities of any kind in the world, delivering more than 200 billion pieces of mail annually. The Postal Service employs more than 800,000 people, who process and carry more mail to more people over a larger geographic area than in any other country. Retirements and expansion have created the need for tens of thousands of new employees in recent years. The USPS offers a secure career with good pay and opportunities for advancement, which makes working for the Postal Service a wise investment in your future.  

If you are interested in job security, consider that the U.S. Postal Service offers a solid array of benefits, including health and life insurance, a retirement plan, a savings/investment plan with employer contribution, a flexible spending account, flextime scheduling of core work hours, and annual vacation and sick leave. Qualified applicants must pass a pre-employment drug screening to meet the requirement to be drug free. Applicants must also be U.S. citizens or have permanent resident alien status.   

There are opportunities for advancement for all. The USPS policy directs that employee promotions be made solely on ability, without regard to race, sex, age, religion, or political-party affiliation. On-the-job training and advancement courses are also offered. New technologies typically create the sense of job elimination, but in the case of the Postal Service, the volume of mail has continued to increase.  
 
An ever-increasing population, along with the increase in direct-mail advertising that comes with an expanding economy, keeps the need for postal workers high. If you think that the use of e-mail could threaten the postal business, remember that the Postal Service is itself a major e-mail service provider. The United States Postal Service reaches every person, every day. In fact, after more than 200 years, the Postal Service is as dedicated as ever to providing quality service to all of its customers.
