USPS is hiring nationwide, Veterans and families get preference

There may not be a stoplight in your hometown, but there’s a United States Postal Service® (USPS) post office. Post offices have become the hub of many communities because they are reliable. It’s comforting that “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night” will prevent letter carriers from delivering the mail. This dedication to the mission is something Veterans hold dear as well.

That’s why USPS is specifically reaching out to Veterans as they staff up. USPS has a long history of providing career opportunities to those who’ve previously served and values the leadership, reliability, and high-tech skills Veterans can bring, as well as their loyalty, leadership, reliability, and integrity.

Nearly 100,000 Veterans currently work for USPS and more than 100,000 positions are available across the nation such as:

  • City and rural postal carriers
  • City carrier assistants
  • Tractor-trailer operators
  • Sales and support
  • Mail processors
  • Mail handler assistants

These positions are available full time, or just on weekends and holidays.

Veterans, disabled Veterans, Reservists, spouses of disabled Veterans, widows or widowers of Veterans, and mothers of Veterans all receive special preference for these USPS positions.
