Status Update: Need a job? Postal service hiring a variety of roles from carrier to mechanic – OCRegister
If you need a job, the U.S. Postal Service is hiring across Southern California.
Available jobs last week included mail handlers, automotive technicians, maintenance mechanic, city carrier assistant, rural carrier, tractor-trailer operator, custodians and occupational nurses.
The USPS recommended interested applicants start online at usps.com/careers. Select California and hit “start” to begin the search for listings.
A search on Friday showed a listing for an automotive technician in Huntington Beach with a salary range of $46,394 to $63,674. Another job for a custodial laborer in Irvine pays $16.42 – $26.02 per hour. (That job requires a written exam although USPS said the exam window had closed.) A number of carrier positions are available in the Inland Empire including Chino, Chino Hills, Corona, Norco and Ontario. The pay starts at $19 hourly and a personal car might be needed to fulfill the route.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and able to pass a drug screening and criminal background check.
USPS said some jobs will require a written exam. Any job that involves driving will also require a valid driver’s license and clean DMV driving history for at least two years. Citizenship or permanent resident status also is required.
