Jobs fairs aim to fill Boston federal jobs
Posted on May 28, 2014
The US Postal Service is partnering with the city of Boston to fill Boston federal jobs through a slew of job fairs.
Greater Boston District Manager John Powers will host five job fairs in Boston neighborhoods. Job fair attendees can apply and learn about the City Carriers Assistant (CCA) job openings at postal facilities throughout Boston.
USPS human resources professionals and Boston employees will be on hand at the fair to answer questions and assist attendees with applications.
The job fairs will be held on Saturday, May 31st from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the following locations:
BCYF Leahy-Holloran Community Center,1 Worrell Street, Dorchester
BCYF Mildred Avenue, 5 Mildred Avenue, Mattapan
Honan-Allston Boston Public Library Branch, 300 N. Harvard Street, Allston
BCYF Paris Street Community Center, 112 Paris Street, East Boston
BCYF Roslindale Community Center, 6 Cummins Highway, Roslindale
The majority of USPS entry-level workers are hired through a competitive process which begins when a job application is submitted. CCAs are appointed for a term of 360 calendar days and may be reappointed for another 360-day term after a five day break in service.
The positions entail all the duties normally performed by a city letter carrier and may lead to a long-term career position. Salary and limited benefits include $15.30 an hour, paid vacation days, and eligibility for health care benefits. Candidates must have a valid driver’s license, exemplary driving record, and two years of driving experience.
