USPS seeks 75 entry-level, seasonal employees on Maui

The Maui News

The U.S. Postal Service is seeking to hire more than 600 new employees statewide in entry-level and seasonal positions, including 75 openings on Maui.

USPS is calling for applications for 275 entry-level and 350 seasonal positions on Maui, Hawaii island, Kauai and Oahu, with starting pay ranging from $18.01 to $20.66 an hour. USPS spokesperson Duke Gonzales said that the openings include 35 entry-level and 40 seasonal spots on Maui.

“These positions are great opportunities for anyone seeking a fast-paced, rewarding work environment with good pay,” USPS Operations Manger Kevin Nakaoka said in a news release Thursday. “While these 275 positions are not career positions, we hope and expect that every single person we hire will take advantage of the opportunities to advance and become a part of our career workforce, with all of the benefits that entails.”

Entry-level opportunities include positions in the Honolulu mail processing facility and mail carrier positions statewide. The seasonal positions are as holiday clerks and are located statewide; the shifts are scheduled from November through early January.

“These seasonal positions, ideal for anyone looking to make extra money during the holidays, are an essential addition to our Postal Service ohana during our busiest time of the year,” Nakaoka said. “They are a key to us delivering a happy holiday to our customers.”

Interested applicants should visit usps.com/careers, click on “apply now,” then select “Hawaii” as their location to see all currently available positions and begin the application process.

The hiring initiative is part of the Postal Service’s “peak season” plan. USPS is bringing on 40,000 new employees across the nation, deploying new machinery at selected locations and redesigning its mail processing and transportation networks in order to meet the holiday delivery demand.
