Postal Service on Hiring Spree in Florida

The U.S. Postal Service says it's accepting applications for seasonal holiday positions needed in its Suncoast District here in Florida.  

Toward that end, the postal service says it's looking for workers in postal facilities in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Ybor City and Orlando. 

The job openings are described as part-time, non-career positions.

These job responsibilities include loading, unloading and moving mail; "and performing other duties incidental to the movement and processing of mail," according to a release from the postal service.

The job pays $12 per hour, with variable work hours and work days, including holidays and weekends.  

The postal service says start time is flexible, but successful applicants must be available when called to report to work.  

The service adds that work hours will vary.  

The employment term is November 2017 through January 2018.

And while the postal service makes it clear that these positions are non-career, with limited benefits, officials add they could lead to a career appointment with the full benefits of a federal employee.  

And the limited benefits for some of these temporary positions look pretty good, since they include paid vacation days, contractual pay raises and access to the USPS non-career Employee Health Benefits Plan.

The Postal Service reports that it receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
