The US Postal Service plans to recruit roughly 1,000 people throughout Washington, with the majority of those jobs going to people in western Washington. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is launching a recruitment drive in four Western states to fill 2,000 open jobs.

The majority of these job openings are concentrated in the western part of Washington state. On Thursday, April 13, the Postal Service will be hosting job fairs all around the state. You'll find the coordinates in this section.

USPS Washington District Workforce Operations Planning Specialist Eden Ching explains, "We're just trying to bring in as many people as we can, and let people know we are hiring for careers, not just jobs but careers." "Pay for the first 90 days of probation is between $19 and $20 an hour, and it can go up.

Letter carriers, clerks, and mail handlers are in high demand at USPS, and there are opportunities for advancement in these roles.

"We have a ceiling that is so vast, you can go into anything you pretty much want to," Ching said. "Not just management, but also other specialty jobs like the inspection service or something that has to do with operations support — if you're good with computers if you're good at doing accounting."

You may work in any state or territory since the US Postal Service employs almost everyone who wants to work there.

Ching has been employed by the USPS for three decades, and she attributes her long tenure there to the organization's progressive culture, strong sense of community, and welcoming attitude toward diversity. The individuals who work here are "one of our organization's greatest assets," Ching added.

To prepare for the next peak period, the agency plans to recruit one thousand more workers in the state of Washington. The effects of short staffing times in certain areas have been reported on by KING 5, and postal worker unions have urged an increase in employees and a more equitable distribution of labor.
