USPS Holding One-Day Hiring Event Across San Diego County – NBC 7 San Diego

Looking for a job in San Diego County? The U.S. Postal Service is looking for you.

The USPS will be holding a one-day hiring “blitz” for mail carriers and clerks at 19 of their post offices across San Diego County on Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Starting pay these positions range from $18.92 to $19.12 an hour, the agency wrote in a press release. The USPS is searching for people who enjoy fast-paced work environments in a job that can lead to long-term careers for the Postal Service.

“There’s never been a better time to join the Postal Service,” said USPS San Diego Human Resources Manager Carol Capone.

“Throughout the COVID pandemic, our employees have played essential roles in their communities. When people have been confined to their homes, when stores and supermarkets have experienced shortages or been shut down, we delivered medicines to house-bound seniors, household supplies to those unable to shop at stores, and COVID tests to anyone who needed them,” Capone added.
