Tennessee – Post Offices across Tennessee will participate in an unprecedented one-day “Mega Blitz” Job Fair on October 4, from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., to recruit new employees to join the USPS Tennessee delivery team.
Potential applicants can stop by one of over 500 post offices in the state where USPS personnel will be onsite to answer questions, assist with the application process and provide detailed information about available positions.
“There has never been a better time to join the Postal Service,” said Tennessee District Manager Omar Coleman. “We are committed to our workforce – beginning with great job opportunities for new employees, and continued career advancement and development. We invite interested applicants who are looking for meaningful careers, and not just another job, to attend one of our job fairs and join our team.”
The available positions – City Carrier Assistant, Rural Carrier Associate and Assistant Rural Carrier – offer starting pay from $18.92 to $19.50 per hour, and are great opportunities to earn valuable experience that may qualify them for a full-time position, eventually leading to a long, prosperous and fulfilling USPS career. The Postal Service is a great place to work that provides generous pay and benefits, job security and career advancement opportunities.
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 US citizen, permanent resident, or citizen of American Samoa or other US Territory.
