Posted October 28, 2021, 10:28 AM HST

The US Postal Service is seeking to hire more than 600 Hawaiʻi residents statewide ahead of the holiday season.

USPS has delivery jobs available on the Big Island, Kauaʻi, Maui and Oʻahu paying up to $20.66 an hour. USPS Operations Manager Kevin Nakaoka said the postal service needs to fill 275 entry-level positions as well as another 350 seasonal positions.

While the entry-level positions are not career positions, Nakaoka said they hope and expect that every single person hired will take advantage of the opportunities to advance and become a part of the USPS career workforce, with all of the benefits that entails.

“These positions are great opportunities for anyone seeking a fast-paced, rewarding work environment with good pay,” Nakaoka said.

The seasonal positions, Nakaoka added, are ideal for anyone looking to make extra money during the holidays.

“…(They) are an essential addition to our Postal Service ʻohana during our busiest time of the year. They are a key to us delivering a happy holiday to our customers,” he said.

Interested applicants should go to www.USPS.com/careers, click on “Apply Now,” then select “Hawaii” as their location to see all currently available positions and begin the application process.

Entry-level opportunities include positions in the Honolulu mail processing facility and mail carrier positions statewide.

The 350 seasonal positions are as holiday clerks and are located statewide. These positions are for shifts scheduled from November through early January.

Starting pay for the available positions ranges from $18.01 to 20.66 an hour.
