Postal service hiring 1,000 workers in WA. Tri-Cities job fair can hook you up
The U.S. Postal Service will hold a job fair in the Tri-Cities as it seeks 1,000 new workers in Washington amid widespread complaints about mail delivery. The Pasco event is 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Feb. 24, at the Pasco Post Office, 3500 W. Court St. Other hiring fairs have been held in Everett and Tacoma.
Appointments are not necessary. Applicants must be 18 or over and able to pass drug screens and a criminal background check. There is an “urgent” need for mail handlers, clerks and mail carriers, it said. Training is provided and positions are also available in Kennewick and Richland. About 300 postal workers serve the Tri-Cities, said Kim Frum, regional spokeswoman.
