Arizona post offices hiring 240 letter carrier assistants

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

If you know someone who's looking for a part-time job, there's a new opportunity available in Arizona.

The United States Postal Service is looking to hire 240 non-career City Carrier Assistants. The positions are at branches throughout Arizona, according to a press release from USPS.

In order to apply, you have to be at least 18 years old or a high school graduate, possess a valid Arizona driver's license and a safe driving record, and at least two years of documented driving experience. The Postal Service says applicants will also have to pass a written exam, in addition to a background check and drug test. Military Veterans preference will be honored, so people with prior service in the armed forces will have an advantage over other applicants.

The job starts out at $15 an hour, and it comes with some limited employee benefits in the first year of employment, according to the Postal Service's press release. Work hours for those hired will vary based on how much mail needs to be delivered, but applicants can expect to work about 20 hours per week.

USPS is taking applications starting Thursday, May 23, through Monday, May 27, 2013. Anyone who's interested needs to apply for the openings online at the Postal Service's website: www.usps.com/employment. You can search jobs by selecting Arizona, and every open position in the state will be displayed.
