As the United States Postal Service continues its evolution as a forward-thinking, fast-acting company capable of providing quality products and services for its customers, it continues to remember and celebrate its roots as the first national network of communications that literally bound a nation together. Ours is a proud heritage built on a simple yet profound mission: Bind the nation together. Connect every American, every door, every business, everywhere through the simple act of delivering mail and packages. This idea of universal service is at the heart of the $1.4 trillion industry that employs more than 7.5 million people and drives commerce, plays an integral part in every American community and remains the greatest value of any post in the world.
The Postal Service delivers more mail to more addresses in a larger geographical area than any other post in the world. The Postal Service delivers to more than 157 million addresses in every state, city and town in this country. Everyone living in the United States and its territories has access to postal products and services and pays the same postage regardless of their location. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
Why work here
Why should you work at this organization?
The United States Postal Service has a long history of providing career opportunities to veterans, reservists, and their family members. In fact, we currently employ nearly 100,000 Military members and Veterans in our organization. We value the leadership, reliability, and high-tech skills veterans bring to the organization, as well as their loyalty and integrity.
The Postal recruiting team recruits nationwide and year-round. These hiring events are great opportunities for you to visit with our team and ask specific questions about the Postal Service.
Military Service is treated as prior employment. In order to receive preference in hiring, you must clearly identify your claim for veteran’s preference on your online application. The Postal Service requires that you submit a copy of your Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, DD-214 (Member 4 Copy), or other official documentation from a branch of the Armed Forces or the Department of Veterans Affairs showing dates of service and type of discharge.
We proudly support local and national veteran outreach organizations to help United States Veterans find a secure and stable career at the Postal Service.
