Post Office Looking for 22 Hires Across West Hawai‘i, Job Fair Feb. 10-11
The U.S. Postal Service is hosting a two-day job fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 10 and 11 at the Kailua-Kona Post Office.
USPS officials hope to hire 22 new employees to fill positions as rural carrier associates and Assistant Rural Carriers in West Hawai‘i. The positions, which offer $19.06/hour as starting pay, will be located at the Kailua-Kona, Kamuela, Kealakekua and Waikoloa Post offices.
During the job fairs, potential employees will be given brief tours of the Kailua-Kona Post Office’s backroom operations in order to familiarize them with the requirements of the jobs.
Rural carrier associates case, deliver, and collect mail along a prescribed rural route using a vehicle and provide customers on the route with a variety of services. Assistant rural carriers deliver packages on Sundays and observed holidays. They may also case, deliver, and collect mail and packages on Saturdays.
“This is a great opportunity for anyone seeking a fast-paced, rewarding work environment with good pay,” said USPS Workforce Planning Specialist Naupaka Hanchett. “As outlined in our USPS Delivering for America plan, we’re modernizing and continually adapting to the changing needs of our customers. In order to do that, we need motivated, dedicated people to join us to deliver for our local communities and our nation.”
Interested applicants should register in advance, via email at [email protected] or by calling 808-423-6071.
Walk-in applicants will be accepted based upon space availability. Those unable to attend the job fairs can apply online at www.usps.com/careers.
Proper footwear — shoes that are fully enclosed at the heels, toes, and sides, made of leather or a substantial synthetic material — must be worn in order to participate in the job tours.
The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
